Editorial Reviews

A big-screen adaptation of Perry's hit stage play of the same title, WHY DID I GET MARRIED? is an intimate story about the difficulty of maintaining a solid love relationship in modern times. During a trip to the picturesque snowcapped mountains of Colorado, eight married college friends have gathered for their annual seven-day reunion. But the cozy mood is shattered when the group comes face-to-face with one pair's infidelity. As secrets are revealed, each couple begins questioning the validity of their own marriage. Over the course of the weekend, husbands and wives take a hard look at their lives, wrestling with issues of commitment, betrayal and forgiveness as they seek a way forward.

This was only my third movie I'd seen of Tylers (behind Diary Of A Mad Black Woman and Daddy's Little Girls) but I'd heard so many positive reviews about this, that I bought it and I'm so glad I did. I truly enjoyed it.
It is a story blending four married couples who each have their problems. They go away on a couples weekend in the mountains and various senarios take place. It was good to see a plus-sized character in here (Jill Scott who played Sheila), but the verbal and emotional abuse she took from her husband was extreme. He was an outright pig of a man (although he's cute and played very well by Richard T Jones) who bought to this couples weekend, his 'bit on the side'. During the course of a dinner one night, accusations go flying about each of the couples relationships or infidelities etc and it gets pretty ugly. There are break ups and make ups and it is done really well. I thought one of the best actors in this movie was actually Janet Jackson. I thought she was very very good in here and I thought Jill Scott was only average. She isn't the best of actresses, yet she did make us really feel for her and her issues with her husband and her weight.
Yes the movie is a little long, but it is very enjoyable and overall it's well acted out and interesting and a new favourite of mine. I really loved this and glad I bought my own copy so I can re-watch it every now and then. It's great.

I almost always enjoy a Tyler Perry movie. However, there are moments in his movies where the goings-ons seem a bit too far-fetched or too sappy/mushy. When considering the casting, cinematography, and story line, this is easily one of his best films. He gives Madea a rest and we are enabled to see him play a serious role, and have a leading role. My favorite entertainer, Janet Jackson, stars in it, so I can write a very accurate synopsis of this film because I've seen it a number of times (smile).

We are introduced to four married couples, all with problems, some apparent and some harbored. Sheila and Mike, Diane and Terry, Angela and Marcus, and Patricia and Gavin. Mike isn't physically attracted to Sheila anymore, so he decides to date her friend, right before her eyes. Sheila and Mike are supposed to be traveling to meet their friends at a resort, but he tells her she has to drive at the last minute. As the film progresses, we feel and see Sheila's pain. Jill Scott did a marvelous job; she had the folks in the theatre cheering for her. Diane and Terry are at odds about many things; having children and schedule conflicts being chief among their marital issues. Marcus and Angela are easily the most entertaining couple of the bunch. Angela cannot seem to stay sober and her husband despises her behavior as a drunk. Also, he has children by another woman and, of course, that causes strain on their relationship. Gavin and Patricia have the best relationship of the bunch, or so it seems. As the film progresses, they endure their share of hardships that were previously unmentioned. There is a lot of comedy in this movie, but also many serious issues are addressed.

This movie is a bit lengthy, but you most likely won't have a problem watching it all the way through, especially those seeing it for the first time. I enjoy it every time I watch it, and you probably know why (Janet!) 4 stars. Great movie!

BUT good movie

I gave this movie a chance. I didn't read reviews on it beforehand but I know I love Tyler Perry's movies. I was very surprised by the wonderful actors who played their parts to a "T". They may have regrets in their marriage, however, I found no regrets after watching this film.

For a Tyler Perry movie, it was actually better than I expected—and my expectations were really low. The movie does have a message about communication between a couple, and I thought that the film did a good job at delivering it. Some acting was a bit off, but overall is a movie that is worth watching at least once.

A very honest and searing look at marriages, how delicate they are and the secrets that threaten to destroy them. Tyler Perry has created four couples Terry & Diane, Marcus & Angela, Sheila & Mike, and Patricia & Gavin. They have all known each other since college. All of them are long time wed couples who meet every year to vacation together. It is a kind of retreat to explore why they got married and what they are willing to do to stay married and make it work.

Of all the couples Marcus & Angela have the most volatile relationship. Angela has an extreme need to be in control of Marcus' every move. What she finds out is that they both have some growing up to do. Sheila is a wife on the verge of losing herself or her marriage. She makes great choices in the end. Patricia a doctor of psychiatry seems to have all the answers, a great marriage and great partner in Gavin. But there is one thing standing in their way. It is a tragic loss the any parent would fear. Terry and Diane have issues of their own and will have to decide if they want to stay together. Diane has to learn to compromise, but will she?

On this trip some secrets are revealed and it is up to these 8 friends to help each other through them and get over some really tough times. This is a movie that can be enjoyed by any adult mature audience and is a great conversation piece.

Makes you wonder, how many times have you asked yourself (if you are) "Why Did I Get Married?"
