Why Did I Get Married Too?
Marriage is an institution they're committed to.
Four couples reunite for their annual vacation in order to socialize and to spend time analyzing their marriages. Their intimate week in the Bahamas is disrupted by the arrival of an ex-husband determined to win back his recently remarried wife.
Even though it's overly long and at times it seems to have nothing to say, it features a stellar performance from Janet Jackson.
I should probably preface this by stating that I have not seen the first film. Though this film seems to cover all the key issues that arose in the original.
Despite a solid cast, this film feels like Tyler Perry just kept throwing in whatever ideas popped into his head. Worst of all not every marital problem is as important, or believable, as Perry makes it out to be. The film is filled with so much melodrama that Perry has to scramble in the last five minutes to solve everything with one line of dialogue...“fix it”. Apparently those two words are the magical cure that all relationships need.
WHY DID I GET MARRIED TOO? "Y'all be rational, she goin' be ghetto!" Hoooo boy. Bonkers. Perry's films are nigh on unwatchable sans Madea.
Horrendous. The first Tyler Perry film I've seen and definitely the last. Stereotypes aplenty, extremely clunky direction and dialogue. It alternates from unfunny broad comedy to soap opera melodramics. I don't think I shaken my head at a movie so much in a long time.
Should have logged this as part of my Halloween Hype viewings, as the most terrifying film I've seen this year. I would truly be scared to sit through it again.
The problem with recommending this as the film which best captures the fucked up mentality of Tyler Perry is that it lacks Madea and you kind of have to watch the first movie to fully get it. Regardless, this is easily the weirdest of the weird, but instead of being some kind of campy cult movie, it's a mainstream success. I saw this one in the theatre and audiences acted exactly as you would expect them to act in a universe where nothing makes sense. I honestly don't know where to begin with this movie, but I know where to end: The Rock.
