Rating: B- -- Amid the shout-downs over adultery, male power, and the agony of coping with a child's death, one performance glistens -- Jill Scott's as the sad, heavyset Sheila, who locates the faith that's the source of love. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- Here's what filmmaker Tyler Perry does well: featuring characters not traditionally seen in movies. Here's where he could use some help: in toning down some grossly over-the-top dramatics. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/5 -- Unfortunately, for all its superficial entertainment value, Perry-ites won't recognize much of Why Did I Get Married? And in this case, a lack of familiarity just may breed contempt.

Despite the improbable ease of pic's genteel psychoanalysis, the characters are thesped with enough depth and emotional investment to make their problems feel legit. Full Review

Product Description:

Tyler Perry has ascended to the status of media mogul on the strength of his combination of Christian morality, slapstick comedy, and soap-operatic melodrama. In 2005, his play DIARY OF A MAD BLACK WOMAN was adapted for the screen and became the surprise hit of the season. With positive portrayals of black characters and family-friendly--but decidedly not boring--themes, the film appealed to a broad audience, and gave rise to numerous spin-offs. Madea is absent from Perry's most recent film, WHY DID I GET MARRIED' but the subject matter is just as universal, and features an engaging cast that counts Perry among its members.

Four couples who have been friends since college take a therapeutic getaway to a Colorado bungalow, where they plan to take stock of their relationships. They are led by successful psychiatrist Patricia (Janet Jackson), who has a picturesque marriage to Gavin (Malik Yoba). Nothing is perfect, however, and secrets and old scars soon emerge, pitting friend against friend and spouse against spouse. R&B singer Jill Scott shines as Sheila, the oft-derided, overweight wife of Mike (Richard T. Jones, GIRLFRIENDS), who arrives on the scene with a sexy young "friend" (Tasha Jones, YOU, ME, AND DUPREE) to shake things up a bit. Retribution and forgiveness follow, with the requisite admonitions and apologies made realistic by the skill of the cast.
