Nobody's Fool Reviews

November 5, 2018
It's something like five movies in one. Or maybe it's five movies in two. Or six movies in three. It's a mess, whatever it is, but it's not without its charms.

Too much of "Nobody's Fool" makes do with well-worn exchanges and contrived, overheard conversations.

Once again, Perry puts a good cast into a muddy story that lacks a clear premise, plot or theme.

Even with all of Haddish's hard work, she still can't clean up the mess she's landed in.

[Sumpter] and Haddish make a likable pair, but Perry never quite works them into a functioning comedy team.

If the movie's looseness lets in an excess of dead air, "Nobody's Fool" is still dotted with pleasures besides those Haddish brings.

Nobody's Fool wastes its comic goodwill and performances by wallowing in the same tired story elements Tyler Perry has been milking on TV and in his movies for decade.

Given that this is the auteur's 20th theatrical feature film, there's no longer any excuse for the pacing issues, the scenes that don't end and the general flaccidness of his direction.

Few mainstream romantic comedies are so brazen or as unconvincing in their third acts.

It's another Tyler Perry film with a lot of lessons, and I don't want to come off like I'm looking down on that (which I don't), but good lessons don't necessarily add up to a good movie.

An uneven, but forgivable, romantic comedy, Tyler Perry's "Nobody's Fool" is fine once it settles into its groove and decides what it wants to be.
