Gathered together in the Bahamas for their annual one-week reunion, four close couples eagerly reconnect, sharing news about their lives and relationships. But their intimate week in paradise is disrupted by the unexpected arrival of Sheila's (Jill Scott) ex-husband, Mike (Richard T. Jones), who hopes to break up her new marriage with Troy (Lamman Rucker) and win her back.

The others soon realize they too are not immune to the challenges of commitment and fidelity. Angela (Tasha Smith) doesn't believe her husband, Marcus (Michael Jai White), can be faithful now that he's a celebrity television newscaster. Dianne (Sharon Leal) and Terry's (Tyler Perry) relationship is feeling the strain of raising children. Patricia (Janet Jackson), a successful self-help psychologist, must finally reveal the deep flaws in her seemingly perfect marriage to Gavin (Malik Yoba).

With their relationships hanging in the balance when they return home, each couple must choose between blame and forgiveness, doubt and faith, with life-altering consequences

2010 Guide Analysis: "The one man industry that is Tyler Perry returns with a sequel to the low-budget 2007 film adaptation of his stage play which scored a solid $55 million box-office taking just over two years ago. All the cast reprised their roles, even Janet Jackson who carried on with her work here despite her brother's death during production.

The Bahamas setting should at least provide a slightly more interesting visual flair than usual, but otherwise expect the same overcooked melodrama and homespun morality tales common to all of Perry's films. The first trailer the other month has caused a bevy of confusion however with the film being sold as a paradise-set serial killer thriller (thankfully it's not Madea in a remake of "A Perfect Getaway"). In reality it's sadly nowhere near that exciting, but the audience is going to come anyway."
