The script's sporadic silliness makes every plot turn questionable; how the talent deftly negotiates such goofiness makes the film near-impossible to resist.

Even if some of the crudeness and the drama feel forced, it's hard to hate.

It's a genially soapy time-killer, though Lee's as shameless in invoking cancer as he is about the catfights and smacktalk.

It's a pleasure to catch up with these characters as they approach the complexities and compromises of middle age with all manner of literal and figurative baggage.

All in all, this long-delayed sequel is a very mixed bag, with just enough laughter and tears to squeak by as holiday entertainment.

Compared to Tyler Perry’s superficially similar fare, this is a masterpiece of mood shifts.
