* LaserGuidedKarma: The second half of the movie is pretty much every rotten thing Charles has done coming back to bite him in the ass. [[spoiler: His dealings with criminal clients leads to him getting paralyzed, his mistress Brenda leaves him to die and takes both his money and their kids without telling him, and when he has the nerve to still treat Helen like trash even after she tries to help him, Helen finally decides to get even. She delivers a massive TheReasonYouSuckSpeech about how being married to him was no picnic on her end but she at least tried to make it work, whereas he stopped caring. The stress he gave Helen caused her, among other things, two miscarriages. After returning the next day she dumps him into a hot bath and starts expressing further grievances. When it looks like Charles is trying to drown himself, Helen stops him, and then later eats dinner in front of him. As Charles is crying for the maid, Helen takes great joy in telling him that his bitch girlfriend didn't pay the staff so they all quit, and then took their kids and some of Charles' things and left. She then tosses her plate of food at Charles and leaves.]]

* BrokenAesop: You know the moral about loving God and trusting Him with your life and problems and worshipping only Him that this movie tries to preach? Well, that gets broken by Madea of all people who told a tale about a man who used to abuse her who she was so angry with that even when she was at his ''funeral,'' she beat him down an extra two feet (from the six feet he was under already), all while proclaiming that she did it because sometimes "God waits too long" to answer our prayers or get revenge on those who we feel deserve it.
