Don't get me wrong, they're great movies, but they're starting to become predictable due to the same direction they always seem to go. It's definitely worth a watch and is way better than some of the other trash out there in the movie store.
A part of what makes I Can Do Bad All By Myself so great is that it deals with though issues. Tough issues are what drive the story of April and her niece Jennifer and nephews Manny and Byron. April is an alcoholic night club singer and lives with her married boyfriend. The pair loathes the idea of having the children in their home, cramping their style and interrupting their Addiction and the effects of addiction are depicted in April's alcoholism and the death of Jennifer, Manny, and Byron due to drug addiction. As the film develops deep issues behind addiction such as rape and molestation come to the surface. The past has hardened not only April but the children who have been given to her to care for as well. Only the care of those from the church down the street and a Sandino, Colombian immigrant trying to redeem himself begin to soften the heart of this tragic family.
Though this family has gone through so many trials I Can Do Bad All By Myself emphasizes that only a loving unified family can overcome. The importance of family is shown by 16 year old Jennifer who is willing to do anything to help stabilize her brothers lives even steal from Madea. Even April eventually comes around and put aside her selfish addiction and desires for the good of her niece and nephews.Read more ›
April is a woman who doesn't care about anyone but herself. She's not a bad person. She's an unhappy person dissatisfied with her life and still burdened by things that happened in her past, so she has a wall up and she is determined not to let anybody in. She doesn't even like it when others tell her that they'll be praying for her. I don't know if she was angry at God or if she didn't think she deserved His love, but I was glad when she realized church was the place to go so she could begin to find peace. And as for the opposite sex, I don't think any man really cared about her until Sandino.
Sandino (Adam Rodriguez) is a man with a good heart. Bad things have happened to him in the past, but, unlike April, he isn't holding onto those experiences; at least not in a bad way. He reaches out to others - particularly children - because of what he went through. He is a very likeable character with lots of good attributes.
Sixteen year old Jennifer (Hope Olaide Wilson) didn't trust anyone because nobody ever gave her a reason to trust them.Read more ›
