I went to see this movie the first weekend that it came out, and I wasn't disappointed at all; I saw the original play, and wasn't greatly impressed with it, but seeing the movie, I enjoyed it very well. Kimberly Elise and Shemar Moore gave great performances; Of course, Tyler Perry playing three roles simultaneously was just as good and I applaud him; Cicely Tyson, of course, gave a gem of a performance helping her daughter become more stronger even though she herself has been wronged; I have heard the good and the bad about this movie; I have heard that Madea is just another stereotypical role model that we need to get away from; But let's be honest, how many of us can attest to a Madea in our family? or at least pieces of such a woman? This was one movie that sex and profanity wasn't splashed forward and yet, the critics bashed it; Yet, I found it a good movie, and can all of us who supported Mr Perry opening weekend be wrong? I don't think so; Look forward to the DVD.

I applaud the earlier reviewer, Ramsess Gray from Fayetteville, NC. Thank you for standing up to all the other so-called critics who trashed this movie. I thought this was an excellent movie from beginning to end. In his big-screen debut, Tyler Perry delivered big-time, no questions asked. Darren Grant, Mr. Perry, Kimberly Elise, Shemar Moore and the rest of the cast were second-to-none in my opinion. I loved each of the characters Mr. Perry played himself, especially gun-toting Grandma. She was funny & very entertaining throughout. As far as best picture and/or any awards are concerned, I think Mr. Perry should have as good a chance as anyone to win an award in some category(ies). Also, in my opinion, Kimberly Elise should win something for her role. And for that matter so should Darren Grant & Shemar Moore. But that's only my opinion. The movie was very entertaining and it had all the qualities you could ask for in a movie. It made you laugh. It made you cry. It made you happy. It made you sad & it made you proud, all in about 2 hours time. I'm sure this movie is not and will not be for everyone. We all have different tastes. All I can really say is "watch the movie for what it is", and that's entertainment at it's best.

Format: DVD
(I give the movie 2 1/2 stars) The movie starts off as a relationship drama, then switches to slapstick humor, then family drama, then to romance, then black revenge comedy, then slapstick, and to inspirational drama. If only Tyler Perry had found a way to one down certian parts, and found a way to tie the humor and drama together more smoothly. Intead it feels like a confused mess, not sure at what it what's to be at the moment, a serious drama or a dark comedy.
It's a shame it doesn't work better, because Kimberly Elise is mezmerizing as Helen, and Tyler Perry as Madea is hilarious. With just smoothing out the script so everything flows together better, and the movie could've been great.

I was expecting this movie to be sooo hilarious, it would be what I would call "stupid funny"...but what I got instead was a really good movie, with a really great message. I have never heard of Tyler Perry before this movie, or his character Madea for that matter, but this movie made me want to see more of her!! Colorful characters, that you end up caring about, really funny, and really touching as well. For those that are looking for something that has a great balance of fun and feeling, this movie is for you!!!

Format: DVD
When this movie came out, I was very much against it. Another man in a fat suit? Didn't we already have a little too much of Eddie Murphy in his second Nutty Professor flick? And Martin Lawrence working the fat suit too? A couple of women friends of mine saw this movie, and I ended up going to see Madea's Family Reunion in the theatre and being very pleasantly surprised. I finally got around to seeing this on DVD and I have to give props to Tyler for having enough vision to take his "chitlin circuit" musicals to the big screen.

The hooks draw you in. You immediately care for the black woman wronged. Madea's get mad and get even message from Tyler Perry in his fat suit. Tyler Perry as Joe cracking about Madea's "refrigerator in her behind". There's always a laugh around the corner.

What makes this film a little stronger than I expected was that it successfully draws on messages of black family without being aimed at a purely churchgoing audience. Sinners will smile a little bit more at some of their churched relatives. Saints will be moved by the struggles for salvation and forgiveness in the movie.

The plot is not always tight. There's a bit of heavyhanded foreshadowing at times and there's a sideplot with the lawyer's crack addict wife that probably adds some unnecessary running time. Still, I give Tyler credit. This is first time out of the box and I think that he learned a lot from this movie in making an even stronger Madea.

Tyler's an amazing entrepreneur and a caring playwright who makes a bold move in this movie. Check this one out and strongly consider buying it.

4 stars
