Tyler Perry's women-in-jeopardy thriller is violent, clumsy.

Not a Christian movie

Sex scenes, swearing, ...don't be fooled. Some reference to church, praying the rosary but certainly not a godly, faith promoting movie.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing

I’ll never get back those 2 hours of my life

This has to be one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. Bad script. Bad acting. Ridiculous plot. Do not subject yourself to this. I watched the whole thing just to see if it could continue to be as bad as it was. It got worse!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (5 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

What might have been simply a mediocre, routine story takes a plunge into the ridiculous as one twist after another assaults the audience with laughable plotting and a graceless production. A Fall from Grace moves from the past to the present as suspense builds and logic recedes. Decent performances are done in by distracting music, amateurish and inaccurate legal proceedings, as well as villains as shallow as they are cruel. It's noted everywhere that Tyler Perry shot his film in five days. That's certainly not surprising given the movie that has been released.
