Consensus: Though well-intentioned, Not Easily Broken is bogged down by melodramatic plotting and stereotypical characters.

[It] has the saving grace of a lively sense of humor that certainly helps the spiritual medicine go down.

Clay Cane

The always immaculate, passionate and soulful Jenifer Lewis -- she could read the words in a phone book and make you feel it. The Hollywood veteran nearly saves the film.

'Don't go all Waiting to Exhale on me,' advises one of Clarice's soul sisters late in the film. If only.

Not Easily Broken isn't perfect, but it is persuasive in its portrait of a husband and wife who must decide whether their frayed marriage is worth fighting to save.

Ali Catterall

It is unspeakably naff, unintentionally funny and unapologetically Christian. Judged on its own terms, it's a resounding success. But for non-believers it will likely prove a living purgatory.

A little over-the-top at times, but it had a good message.
