If you've ponied up 10 bucks to see The Brothers or The Best Man, you'll know what you're in for with Not Easily Broken, a churchy dramedy about a young African-American couple coping with a strained marriage. Morris Chestnut, a vet of both of those earlier films, aces the role of the put-upon husband. 
And Taraji P. Henson (Benjamin Button) adds a dash of 
 vinegar as the materialistic wife with a shrewish live-in mother. Laughter through tears is 
 director Bill Duke's M.O., and he hits the bull's-eye of that modest target.
