Not As Good As The Play Nov 27, 2005
This movie was not that funny as the play this movie stick to the plot and everything but still it just didn't have that magic touch. It was okay though, there was some good parts though. Madea didn't have that much parts in the movie then she did the play. They should of had the original cast from the play instead of the ones that was in the movies.
Moving storyline, but absolutely hilarious Nov 14, 2005
There really aren't enough good words to describe how much I love this movie. Tyler Perry is a mastermind, and this movie is no excepetion to his talent.
Diary of a Mad Black Woman is so well rounded. Not only does it deal with the issue of spousal abuse, but it reveals the importance of forgiveness and love. Whether or not you can relate to the issues they face in this movie, you'll still be able to laugh until you cry and enjoy the characters. Madea as always is an absolute riot and is stirring up trouble as usual. I won't give away what happens...you'll have to see that for yourself. I will say though that if you're ready to laugh, cry, and thank God for His goodness -- buy this movie! You won't regret it! As with this movie and the rest of Tyler Perry's collection -- they're the best films/plays I've seen to date.
Tyler Perry is sending the wrong message with this film! Nov 12, 2005
First of all, let me just say that, why is it that most black films are the only ones that can preach about "JESUS", without offending anyone? Anyone ever think about that? Most 'white' films about Christianity are Roman Catholic influenced. Rarely will you ever see or hear any 'white' preachers, in a 'white' film, even use the name of Jesus. But black films can get away with it. Well, i applaud the intention and motives of Mr.Tyler Perry...but i have to say, he sent the wrong message with this farce. The film revolves around the character of Helen McCarter, and her abusive marriage to a one time drug dealer-turned lawyer. He gets a girlfriend and kicks her out of the house...after 20 years of marriage. Thru her cousin (played by Tyler Perry), she befriends a handsome young man that sweeps her off her feet. Before the film ends, her husband gets confined to a wheelchair. His girlfriend leaves him and he needs his wife to take care of him...which she does, unwillingly. She wants revenge and gets malicious on him (He's paralyzed from the neck down). She then learns from her mother and grandmother (also played by Tyler Perry), that she needs to forgive him. She does. All seems well, especially after they all attend church together, and seemingly start anew. After church they're all at the grandmother's house having a nice soul-food meal, and she get's up and tells her husband she's in love with another man, and walks out the door. The film ends with her in her new lover's arms. Now, if this is what Tyler Perry thinks is a Christian message of a movie, then I've got news for him!? The Bible says that a Christian woman that has an unbelieving husband, should stay with him and be submissive. Her Godly and Loving character may just save him. Nowhere does it say that we should leave to go find a 'better' lover. It does say a man can put away his wife, but it's not taught as the best thing to do. I just feel that Tyler Perry is sending the wrong message with this film. Her husband cried and repented in church. She hugs him and cries with him and they worship God together. Then she runs out the door and into the arms of another man??? Excuse me, but that's just wrong. Not only that, but parts of this film were very vulgar and distasteful. It's not really what you'd want your children to watch. Drug usage, shooting, sexual innuendos...not really a family film. There were some very funny scenes, and much of it was entertaining ( i don't know which came first, this or the Nutty Professor films, but one of them is a rip-off of the other...at least Eddy Murphy didn't use Christianity as a crutch). Overall, i cannot recommend this one. You'd be better off watching something else. * One star.
I LOVE MEDA Oct 25, 2005
THIS MOVIE IS AWESOME. THE CAST IS INCREADBLE. THIS IS MY FAVOIRTE MOVIE. YOU WILL LOVE. TYLER PERRY DID AN EXCELLENT JOB ON CHANGING THIS INTO A MOVIE. THE END WHICH IS THE CHURCH SCENE IS THE BEST PART. I LOVE IT. THIS SCENCE WAS NOT ACTING. THAT WAS REAL. I WISH THAT I WAS ON THAT SET THAT DAY. THIS MOVIE IS A MUST HAVE. IF YOU LOVE TYLER PERRY THEN YOU WILL LOVE THIS MOVIE.
The Reality Oct 25, 2005
I felt that this movie was a great dipiction of Life. Maybe the scenerio was not very realistic, however the happening of events have proven true time and time again.... Women are with me for years and then all of a sudden just dropped like a bad habit. Meeting a man that will take you away from all of that drama rare.. but realistic. I like the fact that movie was very religiously based no profanity and no sexual scenes, so i took my 6 year old son to see the movie as well, he didnt understand what was going on but he enjoyed it just the same. Great Job Tyler Perry, for looking at all aspects of life from the Good Life to the Slum of it all....
