A number of viewers has ridicule this film saying that it's just a men in drag trying to be funny which has been done before and that is true, but none of those have been done like this.

Madea's Family Reunion is about family, love, hurt, painful secrets and laughter. It features the infamous, gun-toting tell-it-like-it-is Madea, but this movie introduces a lot of well-rounded characters that are played by some incredible actors. We meet Vanessa the older of the two nieces in the movie. She has two out-of-wedlock children and has moved in with Madea. We also meet her sister Lisa, the younger and meek one who is engaged to a wealthy and violent investment banker named Carlos. To round out this group is Victoria, Lisa and Vanessa's mother, a strong-willed, domineering mother who has a favoritism for Lisa and a troubled past with Vanessa.

Although the film is titled Madea's Family Reunion, the viewer gets caught up in this dual story of the sisters. One finding what love is, and one finding out what love isn't. The movie boasts powerful issues that are acted out to perfection. Tackling such controversial issues is rarely seen in films today where the movie industry has caught remake and horror fever. What is most compelling is the way Perry tells this story of love and pain, it is without color. Anyone, no matter what race or status can relate to this movie.I also liked how the movie tackled foster parenting. Madea takes in Nikki, a rough quick little girl who has been passed around in the foster care system. With a little patience, a lot of love and encouragement, we see her metamorphosis into a sweet young lady.

The film also features strong matriarchs, garnering appearances from both Cicely Tyson and Maya Angelou.

I read a couple of the reviews and laughed when the one guy said he sat in the DARK...'NUFF SAID' This is comedy which is if anyone really understands true comedy , is based on reality. Of course this is over the top but this is how the plays were as well, if you bothered to watch them. In any event I thought the story telling in this movie surpassed Diary of a Mad Black Woman, I go to the movies to laugh and be entertained when it's comedy, and that is what this movie did!!! As for your million dollar movie idea about the "BLACK EXPERIENCE" When you turn into a black man then you can share it with me, Until then NO THANKS!

The Tyler Perry movie Madea's Family Reunion-The Movie is now available on DVD for the first time. The film is an adaptation of the stage play of the same name. Madea's Family Reunion hit theaters in early 2006 on the heels of Perry's successful 2005 movie Diary of a Mad Black Woman. Madea's Family Reunion opened at #1 in the US box office and held that spot for two consecutive weekends. The film was written and directed by Tyler Perry.

Perry stars in the film as Madea and as several other supportin characters . Consider yourself warned, there is far less Madea in this film than in the previous film. In the early scenes of the movie Madea is awarded a foster daughter (Ke Ke Palmer) by the courts. The girl has a bad mouth and is unruly. Naturally Madea "whips" her into shape. Although this storyline was mentioned heavily in the promotion of the film this storyline is actually the least developed in the film.

The primary storylines are those of Madea's Lisa and Vanessa. Lisa is a refined beautiful woman engaged to a wealthy Atlanta businessman named Carlos (Blair Underwood). He is very abusive. Despite the abuse her mother Victoria (Lynn Whittfield) encourages her to stay in the relationship. Lisa's sister Vanessa is emotionally battered and bruised single mother of two. When she meets a handsome bus driver named Brian (Boris Kodjoe), she is afraid to open her heart and love and be loved.

Madea's Family Reunion-The Movie is an excellent film with an all star black cast. Maya Angelou, Cicely Tyson, and Jennifer Lewis are just a few of the talents rounding out the cast. Some of the most impressive acting came from Lisa Arrindell Anderson who portrayed Vanessa in the film.

Madea's mannerism's and one liner's bring needed laughs to a film with a strong and powerful message.

Ok. I am a fan of Diary of a Mad Black Woman- it is one of my favorite movies. Maybe that's why I am so dissapointed by Family Reunion. It is done very poorly, there is no connectivity between the scenes, jumping from an attempted murder scene *Carlos informs his fiance that if he can't have her no one will and tries to launch her off the apartment patio* to a light-hearted scene. This movie does not flow. Tyler Perry seems to have tried to tackle a movie that includes too many stories that don't really come together.

This movie does make it clear beating a woman isn't right, but by throwing hot grits in the perpertrators face a beating him with a frying pan is ok gives the wrong message, as does Madea beating her foster daughter for lying. It says abuse is ok in certain situations- he should have stuck with one or the other- by doing both he sends a unsettling message.

Also, the acting and dialouge was terrible. Really. The few good lines were butchered because of the added dramatics. I know the message was for black men to own up and be responsible and for black women to treat themselves with more respect- which is fine... but it also could be construed as all young black men and women are lacking in morals by portraying them as gamblers and stripper-esk dancers. I think this scene could have been done in a far more tasteful manner.

The message is good but the acting and script are too over the top for me to even think about taking this movie seriously. Save your time and money and just stick with Diary of a Mad Black Woman.
