Product Description

When Madea, America's favorite pistol-packing grandma, catches sixteen-year-old Jennifer and her two younger brothers looting her home, she decides to take matters into her own hands and delivers the young delinquents to the only relative they have: their aunt April. Initially wanting nothing to do with the kids, April learns along the way that she can change her old ways and become a better person. But it takes a lot of work and the help of a handsome Mexican immigrant who moves in with April to push her to change.

In one of his most satisfying films to date, Tyler Perry keeps the faith with his devoted audience, giving them his signature mash-up of heart-wrenching melodrama (there's enough material here for a dozen Lifetime movies), outrageous comic relief, and soul-stirring spiritual uplift. Adapted from his play of the same name, I Can Do Bad All by Myself stars Taraji P. Henson as April, another damaged Perry woman on the verge. She's an alcoholic nightclub singer involved with a controlling married man and estranged from her mother and her church (despite the best efforts of a congregant portrayed by Gladys Knight). When her mother dies, April is forced to take in her dead crack-addict sister's three children. She does not exactly put out the welcome mat. Perry's crowd-pleasing signature character, Madea, aka "the heavyweight champion of the world," is mostly offscreen, but she makes the most of her scant screen time, serving up her own brand of old school discipline ("I promise you gonna come up missing," she threatens one troubled teen who talks back to her) and values-added wisdom ("You get out of this life what you put into it"). Will April finally see the light, accept the Lord, and open her heart to the kids and the saintly (and handsome) Colombian immigrant handyman (Adam Rodriguez) who lives in her basement? Knight, Marvin Winans, and Mary J. Blige raise the roof with showstopping gospel and blues numbers that capture the fervor of a Perry theatrical experience. Another Perry film not screened in advance for critics, another film that was No. 1 at the box office its opening weekend, I Can Do Bad All by Myself is further testimony that, for now, Perry can seemingly do no wrong. --Donald Liebenson

This movie is truly the best of Tyler Perry's that I have seen so far. I am not saying that the others were not very good. They were ! But this one with a different story line is precise in acting and deliberate with its message. You laugh and cry at the same time. Your heart is touched with a deep message of hope in mankind revealed through finding peace with God. The entire cast must have been hand-picked after much prayer by Tyler Perry and his group. They blended together with such depth of expression and acting. Must say Tyler Perry is becoming a master with turning his plays into successful movies and as I know he would say 'all Glory to God !' Go see this movie if you haven't and you will understand what I am trying to say !

When Madea catches sixteen-year-old Jennifer and her two younger brothers looting her home, she decides to take matters into her own hands and delivers the young delinquents to the only relative they have: their aunt April. A heavy-drinking nightclub singer who lives off of Raymond, her married boyfriend, April wants nothing to do with the kids. But her attitude begins to change when Sandino, a handsome Mexican immigrant looking for work, moves into April's basement room. Making amends for his own troubled past, Sandino challenges April to open her heart. And April soon realizes she must make the biggest choice of her life: between her old ways with Raymond and the new possibilities of family, faith and even true love. I have all of Tyler Perry's movies and plays, and this movie is very entertaining. No one does it better but Tyler Perry.

I think every man and woman should see this movie. The actors and actresses were excellent. I have been in this situation myself and finally got out of it. We can always let bad men run our lives but once we wake up and see that we are better off without them we "Can Do Bad All By Ourselves". I can't wait until the soundtrack comes out because the music was excellent. Mr. Perry you chose the right people to do the music and I really felt like I was in church with the Reverand. Thank you for being so real.

This movie is a good movie. It shows why some people really are good inside even though they make bad choices and seem uncaring.
The main character April was sexual abused by her mothers boyfriend and she never got help. She became a selfish person to survive and an alcoholic. She has to help her sister kids since she's now their only resources. She finally has chance with real love with her Mexican tenant and repair guy only problem is she is dating a married man who even tries to rape her niece . God all mighty is the star of this film with all the church services and songs to boot. I love it to watch a ,movie and a church service at the same time how can you beat that. With God on her side she finally gets save and it all comes together. God the family kids and a real man that loves her. This is why I love this movie.

some say there is too much drama, but I think it is very relevant. I have known people just like this. It is bold and honest in the challenges many face in life. Perry makes it clear there is hope and life and love for any who will let go the past and grab hold honest love and forgiveness of themselves and others who have done them harm.
