TOP 100 MOVIES in 2007!
When eight married college friends reunite for their annual retreat in the snowcapped mountains of Colorado, they come expecting fun and relaxation, but get a completely unexpected surprise. Career-driven Dianne (Sharon Leal) and her supportive, but fed-up husband, Terry (Tyler Perry), are joined by popular psychologist and best-selling author Patricia (Janet Jackson) and her architect husband Gavin (Malik Yoba), who share a secret tragedy that finally comes to light, while Angela (Tasha Smith) and Marcus (Michael Jai White) argue constantly, but remain in love. Also in attendance is their good friend Sheila (Jill Scott), a sweet woman with a distorted self-image stemming from weight issues that are exacerbated by her emotionally abusive and philandering husband, Mike (Richard T. Jones). Unlike any other year, this trip changes the dynamic of the group with two new additions: Sheila's supposed girlfriend, Trina (Denise Boutte), who is secretly sleeping with her husband; and Troy (Lamman Rucker), an ex-Wall Street stockbroker who has put his career on hold to care for an ailing father.
WOW, just… wow. Tyler Perry has a fantastic sense for drama and telling stories, and he creates some amazing and deeply interesting characters. I was greatly impressed with his last movie "Daddy's Little Girls" and I am happy to be equally impressed by "Why Did I Get Married?" Having written, directed on produced both movies (and many others) I'm blown away by his level of talent. The drama in "Why Did I Get Married?" is often either deeply moving, deeply thought-provoking, or so incredibly funny that it's hard to breathe because you're laughing so hard. The audience participation was really fun and amazing too (everyone was hooting and hollering and having a great time). The cast was nothing but stellar, with terrific performances all-around. Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend this movie to everyone. It's a really entertaining and enjoyable movie that will have you smiling and emotionally fulfilled by the end.
All in all, I'd give this movie 5 Eighty-Twenty Rules (out of 5). Re-watch value: HIGH
Tyler Perry is at it again with what looks like another really good movie (I am a big fan of his previous works). This movie turned out to be extremely funny, and it was hard to stop laughing most of the way thru. I thought Janet Jackson did a fantastic job and I would like to see more of her in the theatre. Overall, this is a good movie for those who are married, thinking of getting married, or even just in a relationship. It was very upfront about talking things thru and not having secrets. I really enjoyed this movie all the way thru and I am having a ton of respect for Tyler Perry.
Overall Rating: 4.5 Wine Bottles (out of 5). Re-Watch Value: High (I will purchase this on DVD)
