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.
First of all, Madea does steal the show in her handful of scenes, but she is not the star of the movie. Kimberly Elise stars as a woman who has been married for 18 years. She loves her lawyer husband Charles who is impressively portrayed by Steve Harris. On the outside it looks like they have the perfect life, but their marriage is horrible. They have money and a huge estate but he abuses his wife Helen emotionally, verbally-and physically. The scene in which he drags her out of the house on their 18th wedding anniversary is heartbreaking.
When Charles leaves Helen with nothing she finds herself at her grandmother Madea's house. Madea is so hilarious. She makes Helen realize that she is entitled to money and property. When Madea and Helen go back to Helen's house the adventures ensue.
Shemar Moore stars in the movie a different kind of role. He normally plays the "pretty boy" type but in this movie he is an unshaven, corn row and doo rag wearing blue collar worker named Orlando. He and Helen get off on the wrong foot but they eventually warm to each other. Tyler Perry who stars as Madea, also appears in the movie as Helen's cousin Brian. Brian is a lawyer and he is having marital problems. His estranged wife and the mother of his two children is strung out on drugs. Tyler Perry also appears in the film as the outspoken brother of Madea, Joe. Those two are hilarious on screen together as they trade barbs back and forth.Read more ›
