This film is a brilliant piece of work. Tyler Perry combines all the elements needed to make a very heart warming memorable drama as well as a outrageously funny comedy.There were a few people who dogged the movie who claimed they were expecting something like Big Momma's House. One person even went as far as to call it "Afro Trash." To these close minded people who obviously lack the ability to enjoy a film such as the one Tyler Perry has made I say go out and rent Mrs. Doubtfire if thats the kind of attitude your gonna have.Mr. Perry, thank you for making a film that makes <more>
people stand up and pay attention. I can't wait for the next one.
What's wrong with these reviewers? (by streetballa_4)
I think everybody that reviewed this must be white. Haha, it really seems like it, but it's funny because I am white. This movie was awesome in my opinion. I almost didn't watch it because the rating was so low, but I'm so glad I did. It was the most ridiculous movie I have ever seen, in a good way. It HILARIOUS in some parts while in other parts I was almost crying. That's crazy 'cause I'm just a 16 year old dude. I can't wait to show my girlfriend this film, I will definitely get it on DVD. It's been so long since I've seen a movie that's actually <more>
made me laugh, like the kind that I would laugh at if I were alone. This was definitely one of them. It's superb the way Tyler Perry was able to script and produce this, addressing very very delicate subjects in a way that somehow managed to be respectful, yet at the same time humorous. At the same time he acted 3 characters and he was really the life of the movie. Blair Underwood Carlos really did a good job at being somebody you love to hate, it's hilarious though because he was also the man that got left in his last movie Something New. Overall I was very pleasantly surprised with this film, outstanding performance by all in my opinion.Great movie!
I think it was an excellent movie. It's one of those movies that you have every emotion with. You laugh, you cry, your shocked and angry. I would definitely watch it more than once! Good family movie also. It teaches kids about respect, family about caring, and shows kids right from wrong. It also teaches you about black history and where they came from. There are amazing actors and actresses in the movie!!! To see Maya Angelou and Cicely Tyson was awesome. Tyler Perry is amazing as Aunt Madea and once again keeps you laughing! The music selection was great and the wedding was absolutely <more>
beautiful. I think it was one of those movies that teach you that anything is possible and that you can be whoever you want to be no matter who tells you different. Seeing a child from the foster care system be turned around from a rough child into a beautiful, caring, loving child shows you as Aunt Madea said all a child needs is love, caring and compassion and to be taught to believe in yourself. The world today is quickly falling apart. Family values are being forgotten and everyone seems to be going their separate ways. The movie teaches you that family is everything; never forget where you come from.
Great Movie! Even better than the first.. (by Darkhero)
Tyler Perry has done it again and, I think, even more successfully than Diary of a Mad Black Woman. I caught the first showing today at the theater and I loved it. I wanted to watch it again as soon as it was over. I'm a big fan of the first movie and Tyler Perry's plays and was extremely excited for Family Reunion. I was not at all let down. The movie is touching, hilarious, and has a lot of heart and soul. The first movie might have had some bigger laughs, but this one is still so funny and there's A LOT more of Madea. Judging by the audience's reaction, I think a lot of <more>
people are going to have a great time with this in theaters. GO SEE IT!
Madea is back and funnier than ever! (by JonTMarin816)
Tyler Perry is back as the gun toting Madea in the comedy Madea's Family Reunion. In this film, a relative of Madea comes to her rescue while she's in a abusive relationship with the man that shes going to marry. Tyler Perry takes multiple roles again as Madea, her brother and his son Joe. The film has an impressive cast that includes Blair Underwood, Lynn Whitfield, Cicely Tyson and poet Maya Angelou. The story of the film progresses and makes the film a sort of edge of your seat drama but it's the humor of Madea that'll have you rolling.Both Blair Underwood and Lynn <more>
Whitfield were great as the sinister characters throughout the movie. It's definitely a must see for anyone. It saved me from sitting through the "comedy" called Date Movie. Madea's Family Reunion is great.Madea's Family Reunion- ***1/2 out of ****
I recently saw the Madea's Family Reunion movie and loved it. Tyler Perry is a very gifted man and deserves so much more credit than he is actually given. His movies and plays hit home to a lot of families and people and deal with issues that happen in everyday situations. As an African American woman, I am proud to to see a young brother handling his own and doing what obviously comes natural to him. Back in the day every African American family had someone that played the role as a "Madea". Madea keeps the family going and brings everyone together. Tyler Perry, continue to do <more>
what God has placed on your heart. I have enjoyed the plays and will continue to join a packed movie theater whenever they hit theaters.
This is to me just an amazing, funny, delightful movie.But first ... to be honest, I wasn't planning on seeing this movie at all. I had woe be to me never even heard of Tyler Perry. And the film's title alone sounded ... well ... unappealing at best. The synopsis I'd read suggested yet another movie with a man playing an overweight black woman. That might have been funny once or twice ... in Big Momma's House, and The Nutty Professor ... but surely can't keep carrying so much water as to make yet another movie about this same motif, right?Well, be that as it may, I <more>
noticed that this film had hit the top of the box office when it opened a week ago. And then I read a review this morning by a typically politically correct reviewer who was "dissing" the movie. Now this is a reviewer I've come to rely upon as always panning movies I like and waxing enthusiastic about movies I dislike. So reading this reviewer's badmouthing prompted me to try out this movie ... and I am so glad I did. I think I can see why high-minded PC reviewers wouldn't like it. It's a "popular" comedy, full of rough, earthy humor, celebrates Black cultural child-rearing values, and unapologetically celebrates God and family. No wonder it's been a hit with the general Black American culture, especially Black Churchgoing culture.What is it that makes this movie so funny and so deeply heart-warming at the same time? Well, in some ways, this is something of an old-fashioned morality play. Such has a wonderful tradition in Western Culture ... and in African culture. A resurrection of the Morality Play is fine by me: just a shocker, that's all. I kept thinking, "how are these characters getting away with saying things like that?" As when the leading lady says she's given her life to God and has been celibate and will stay celibate till she's married. How is it possible for something like that to show up in a general release movie in this day and age? Not as a statement to be mocked, but as an expression of genuine faith in God and Chastity? I just shook my head and smiled and enjoyed the sheer frank morality of the movie every time it surfaced ... which was pretty often indeed.The music was resplendent throughout the movie, but the sound seemed a little problematic at times. The audio was almost echoing, flat, tinny ... sort of like a somewhat bad mono recorder. The cinematography was fine, but in a way, very old-fashioned ... stylistically similar to the movies from the early days when films were often framed as theater transferred to the screen. Maybe that reflects Tyler Perry's background, I understand as a playwright. But for example, the camera follows the action in a very straightforward, even simple way: head on, straight up, no angle shots, no through shots, no complex dissolves or modern "realistic" camera "jiggling". Maybe this is intentional: the movie is telling a plain, straight story with feeling and humor and no hint of subtlety. If this is what's going on, it's fine by me: because this makes for a very candid, very honest, but never discomforting style. Perry's narrating a Story, Telling us What's Happening. Nuance is not what we're after here. Very basic human themes are painted with strong strokes. So we have a basic cinematography to fit this purpose. Fair enough.There's an interesting interplay of serious and humorous material at two levels. First, there's some very tight sequencing in which strongly emotional material is followed by strong humor. Some will like this, some not, but it's very much at the core of Madea's character, and the overall character of the movie. Second, "serious" scenes are sometimes interspersed with humorous scenes inserted clearly for no other reason than plain comic relief. I think some might find that a little jarring. Still, it works for me very well. And this kind of thing goes back to Shakespeare at least, so I know it works for others as well.The acting and characterizations were wonderful. Now again, don't look for subtlety, that's not the nature of the movie. But if it's good, solid performances matching characterizations to characters, this movie has it all. Tyler Perry as Madea and Joe was simply perfect. But the entire cast provided strong, reliable performances. Including a delightful cameo by Maya Angelou. A few "plot holes" have been alleged. I see what's meant, but frankly, don't agree at all. This is a movie that for the most part is stylized, full of art and artifice, not a "realist" movie in which careful plotting is critical for believability. A movie like this is more like a painting, or a song ... a ballad. A popular folk ballad, full of humor and fun and tears and hugs ... and lightly textured but unapologetic moralizing. This movie is a classic combo of Entertainment and Edification. The final scenes at the farm, and at the wedding, really sum up the movie in both respects, and keeping a scorecard on consistency of details is very out of place, it's directly contradictory to the genre.Last but not least, I have to say that the figure of Madea ... tying everything together with humor and wisdom ... is a sheer delight. I'm told she'll be back on the silver screen. Good ... I can't wait to make her acquaintance once again some day.And needless to say I'm going to try to find and watch Diary of a Mad Black Woman as soon as I can find it ... !
A delightful insight to a family that lives an everyday life (by dducre)
This movie made me laugh over and over again, I cried a little too and even experienced anxiety during the dramatic scenes, but most of all I loved the way Tyler continues to make his creations true to life. All of us have times of Joy, sadness and emotional upset in our lives. I will purchase every movie and play Tyler writes, produces, directs and stars in. We need more real life movies these days to bring us back to reality. The fact that Tyler chooses great actors to portray his characters and both young and old actors to share the fame and wealth is very touching to me. I hope Tyler <more>
continues to takes his plays and movies to the communities, so that we can laugh and share the joy with friends and family members.
Surprisingly, "Madea's Family Reunion" is even better than "Diary" and is a perfect mix of comedy and drama. (by MovieManMenzel)
"Madea's Family Reunion" is one of nine Tyler Perry plays. "Family Reunion" is the second play that was made into a movie and is overall surprisingly better than the first film "Diary of a Mad Black Woman. In "Family Reunion" Madea is back and has now taken on even more problems. She is assigned to be a foster parent to a young girl KeKe Palmer and has to deal with her two nieces Vanessa Lisa Arrindell Anderson and Lisa Rochelle Aytes who are both having relationship problems. A very nice mix of drama and comedy ensues Tyler Perry is truly a god <more>
when it comes to African American cinema. When I first seen "Diary of a Mad Black Woman" last year in theaters, I was amazed by the outcome because I never heard of the film before and just took a chance by seeing it. And now after seeing "Family Reunion" which is even better than "Diary" I am becoming a big Tyler Perry fan. I think what makes Tyler Perry's work so great is the fact that he doesn't stereotype his characters. Hollywood tends to always portray African Americans in a very negative light and it's very refreshing to see African Americans in a positive light. I think film critics mainly bash a movie like this because they are uptight white guys who can't understand why something like this is liked. But me personally I love these films and can't wait for the next one to arrive next year."Family Reunion" is a perfect mix of comedy and drama. With issues of rape and spousal abuse all being touched upon, this movie has you on the verge of tears at one moment but then rolling in the aisles with laugher a few minutes later. The movie is a great dramedy that even makes a great statement at the end by stating be who you are and stop doing what others are doing. Basically, be yourself and have people love you for that.Tyler Perry who not only writes, directs and produces the film but also stars as the main character Madea along with two minor characters Brain and Joe. Although he has his hands full he does a great job playing every character. He also does a great job directing capturing the real emotion and heartbreak of each character. I would personally love to see one of Perry's plays live because if he can make a movie this good, I would love to see how great his live plays would me. All of the other characters were great as well including Keke Palmer who played the foster child Nikki and Lynn Whitfield who played the mom Victoria who played that role without breaking a sweat which was amazing. The woman seemed like she didn't even have a heart at all and was extremely believable. Overall, the acting was very solid and I really enjoyed all the performances.In conclusion, ignore the critics with this one. They don't know what they are talking about when it comes to Tyler Perry movies. This movie is definitely one step up from his previous film and I can only hope they continue to get better as they go along. It's nice to see a filmmaker who wants the world to view African Americans as regular people. Hollywood usually stereotypes them as gangsters and drug dealers in almost every other film, but Perry breaks the routine. This movie can bring tears to your eyes at one moment and then gasping for air from laughter a moment later. I personally hope this film does great at the box office and I hope to see Perry's last seven plays made into films as well. I highly recommend this film.MovieManMenzel's final rating for "Madea's Family Reunion" is an 8/10.
