Last Friday, Tyler Perry returned on the big screen with his fourth drama film “Why Did I Get Married?” following his other successful films “Diary of a Mad Black Woman,” “Madea’s Family Reunion” and “Daddy’s Little Girls.”
The film discusses the difficulty of maintaining a good, solid relationship in today’s society.
During a snowy trip to Colorado, eight married college friends meet for their yearly reunion. Drama unfolds as the trip exposes a lot of secrets between the couples, which ultimately makes each couple question their own marriage by asking themselves, “why did I get married?”
For those viewers who are die-heart Tyler Perry fans and are in relationships or married will definitely appreciate “Why Did I Get Married?”
After Perry’s appearance in “Madea’s Family Reunion,” he steps in front of the camera as the character, Terry, who is a pediatrician. The film is different from other Tyler Perry films because viewers see a different side of Perry as he takes off the wig, lipstick, and body suit, and becomes the character Terry who is very passionate and wants his marriage to work. It seemed very odd to see Perry acting as himself throughout the entire film.
A talented cast accompanies Perry that includes top litigator Dianne (Sharon Leal) who is the wife of Terry (Tyler Perry). Janet Jackson stars in the movie playing best selling book author and psychologist, Patricia. She shocks viewers with her appearance because how fragile her face looks. Some people can say that she looks similar to Michael Jackson. Her husband, Gavin, played by Malik Yoba, is an architect. Angela (Tasha Smith) is an entrepreneur. Her husband is Marcus (Michael Jai White). Also in attendance is Shiela, (Jill Scott) and her husband Mike (Richard T. Jones), Trina (Denise Boutte) who is Shelia supposedly good friend and Troy (Lamman Rucker), a local Sheriff.
“Why Did I Get Married” was originally an on-stage play that Perry developed into a film.
The cast put more emotions into the characters and viewers were able to feel every pain that came from each character. Viewers will have lots of laughs and surprises while watching the film.
