Jenifer Lewis, What's Love Got to Do With It and Think Like a Man

In 1993, Lewis played a mother who abandoned her kids in the award-winning Tina Turner biopic.  Nearly twenty years later, in Think Like a Man, she plays the mother who keeps her grown son on a short leash. She may be the type of movie mom that drives her kids into therapy, but we can't get enough of her.
