Added DiffLines:

* NotTheirBirthday: Patricia humiliates Gavin at work by bringing in a giant birthday cake containing a gay male stripper and asking all of his co-workers to sing "Happy Birthday to You" to him, even though it wasn't his birthday. [[spoiler:It later becomes his deathday though]].


Added DiffLines:

* TitleDrop: Done by Angela early in the film, preceded by Marcus dropping the name of the first film.

Added DiffLines:

* TemptingFate: Diane mentions that the couples retreat would be drama-free (and she will be happy that it’s without Mike). Cue the crowd hearing Angela and Marcus arguing seconds later. Also, Mike shows up to the couples retreat at the Bahamas.


* DidntThinkThisThrough: Sheila insists on spending all of hers and Troy’s savings on the couples retreat presumably because she believed that it would help their marriage, but it just caused more strain because all Troy could think about was how much more broke they’d become.

to:

* DidntThinkThisThrough: Sheila does this throughout this film.
** This is the main cause for Sheila and Troy’s issues in their marriage. Sheila just decided to make Troy quit his job, sell his shop, and for them to move from Colorado with little money to spend, an infant son, and without a job for Troy to provide for the family without thinking about the possibility of unemployment putting a strain on their marriage. Even Troy lampshades that they should have waited a few years to move.

** Sheila for the third time. She goes to her ex husband, Mike, of all people to help Troy get a job behind the latter’s back. While she meant well, she does this without thinking of the possibility of Troy finding out (which he later does, and Troy is ''pissed'' for a good reason).


* FanDisservice: Invoked: Angela playing in the ocean in a gorgeous bikini would be absolutely alluring...had she not been [[spoiler: covered by the ashes of a woman (as the elderly couple was sending them out into the sea, but the wind caused them to land on her instead).]]



** Also, the recession lead to both Troy being unable to find work in law enforcement after moving from Colorado to Atlanta (in spite of his credentials) and for Angela's own beauty shop to take a hit resulting in her losing business and Marcus (now a sports announcer) ending up the breadwinner.

* ShoutOut: The storyline of Sheila asking Mike to hook Troy up with a job is obviously a replica of the storyline in the movie ''Film/SoulFood'' when Bird goes behind Lem's back to help the latter get a job.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassHasAPoint:
** Patricia may be an InsufferableGenius, but she was right about how Sheila should start seeing things from Troy's point of view. She's also right about how controlling Angela can be.
** When Troy apologizes to Mike for attacking him, Mike points out that Sheila would never be the type of person to cheat on her spouse (Mike is right).
