If you saw Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married and like it then you will like this one. The first has laughs and drama and some tears, this one has more laughs, more drama and boy did it have tears. I thoroughly enjoyed the first one, but this one I must admit had me captivated too. For any one that is married I am sure you will be nodding your head to many things in it, I certainly did. I knew this film did not get good reviews, but everything is subjective, was this a great film, no, could it have been better, yes, the ending needed work, but all in all I enjoyed it. I did feel there were a couple of stereotypes and things don’t get that easily resolved but it’s a movie, it can’t run for hours to show issues get resolved. I know that some people will see a little of themselves or others in the characters or at least in the situations or some of the complaints.
The film is about four couple friends who meet for their annual reunion vacation. They share news and laughs about their lives and marriages. The forever loud suspicious wife and enduring husband Angela (Tasha Smith) and Marcus (Michael Jai White). The perfect on the outside but broken on the inside Patricia (Janet Jackson) and Gavin (Malik Yoba). The emotionally unconnected Terry (Tyler Perry) and Dianne (Sharon Leal). The newly married Sheila (Jill Scott) and Troy (Lamman Rucker).
The writing was not the most imaginative, the acting was great, especially Janet Jackson as Pat, at the beginning like the first movie so so, but towards the end her acting and role got stronger. Mike (Richard T Jones) didn’t seem to fit in there that much he just showed up, but you kind of got why he was there a little after the middle of the film. It would have been better to explain why Troy (Lamman Rucker) could not get a job especially as he was a cop. I personally think this is worth a watch, it was funny & emotional, an enjoyable little movie with a great cast.
