YMMV: For Colored Girls
- Award Bait: Tyler Perry was really hoping that this movie would be as well-regarded as his previous effort was.note It...didn't quite live it to its hype.
- Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: You have no idea. All of these women lead depressing and tragic lives and without any sign of it ever getting better. Between facing betrayal, loneliness, physical and sexual abuse, disease, broken dreams, depression and death, you have to wonder how they even manage to get out of bed in the morning.
- Mary Sue: Gilda. Although it's revealed that she was once a prostitute herself, she is for the most part the "perfect" neighbor who seems to be able to give advice to everyone else or pass judgment on what should have been done.
