“Why did I get married?” was a hit movie that tackled marital issues and joys by introducing Tyler Perry fans to 4 couples who have annual retreats to rekindle their relationships but find themselves leaving the holiday with more problems.
The couples are old college friends : -
Perfect Patricia (Janet Jackson) married to architect Gavin (malik Yoba),
Christian Sheila(Jill Scott) previously married to abusive Mike (Richard T. Jones) now married to sherrif Troy (Lamman Rucker),
Lunatic Angela (Tasha Smith) married to former Football star Marcus (Michael Jai White)
Workaholic Dianne (Sharon Leal) married to pediatrician and homemaker Terry (Tyler Perry)
In the sequel “why did I get married, too?” the couples reunite for a most welcome retreat to the Bahamas to relax and rekindle their flames however they find themselves carrying all their emotional baggage and stresses with.
Patricia is bottling up her emotions and the marriage has taken a point of no return with her husband Gavin. This relationship was too much to handle; and the casting of Janet Jackson to carry this heavy role was a burden for her. She did not convince me in the original movie, and she dismally failed again (for me) in this one.
Angela has sought solace in the bottle and has now increased her verbal abuse on her husband Marcus since he has found a job. Angela gives the movie the best moments with her over-the-top behavior and handling of her relationship.
Sheila, who recently went through a divorce from Mike, has to face the marital financial challenges with her new husband Troy. Mike is also not making it an easy situation for her.
Dianne gave her husband Terry the son he always wanted and seems to be glowing at work in more ways than one.
Absolutely riveting drama, funny and serious storyline that builds your excitement to a crescendo and then they pull the floor right from under you; you plummet to nothing. Somewhere in those last minutes, thescenes make you feel like Tyler Perry was dead tired and just wanted to end the damn thing!
I absolutely hated the last 5 minutes of the movie. The whole movie the story built me up to excitement levels that made me realize there’s challenges in every marriage and there is nothing wrong with not having solutions to some of the issues or simply doing what is right for you as a couple. AN THEN the ending just zaps all that juice out!
I will give this movie 4 segs stars for the on the edge of your seat moments it gave me. I would defs recommend it for those that love drama and other people’s bizniz!
