QUICK TAKE:
Drama: A businessman's life is knocked out of its routine when he meets a down on her luck single mother who cleans his office building.
PLOT:
Wesley Deeds (TYLER PERRY) seems to have it all. The San Francisco businessman is engaged to the beautiful Natalie (GABRIELLE UNION) and he runs the highly successful software company his late father built into an empire. His proper mother, Wilimena (PHYLICIA THOMPSON), couldn't be happier with him, especially when compared to his hot-tempered brother, Walter (BRIAN WHITE). Keeping a promise to his father to watch over him, Wesley lets him work at the company, even if that ends up being disruptive to the work of his right-hand man, John (EDDIE CIBRIAN).

Walter's temper flares when Lindsey (THANDIE NEWTON) ends up momentarily parking in Wesley's reserved spot while she tries to get an advance on her paycheck. The single mother to 6-year-old Ariel (JORDENN THOMPSON), Lindsey is about at her wit's end trying to make ends meet and avoid being evicted from her apartment. Initially unbeknownst to Wesley, she works as a cleaning person in his building, and ends up living out of her van when she does get kicked out of her place.

Despite their initial antagonistic confrontations and their overall employer-employee relationship, the two become friends. As they do so, he helps her out financially, while she helps him realize he needs to live his own life and not that of others expected of him.

    I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

    I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

    I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

    Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
