Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married
Source: Catholic News Service
Raucous humor alternates with a serious examination of the challenges of married life as four couples gather in the Rockies for their annual vacation and retreat: a best-selling pop psychiatrist (Janet Jackson) resists her architect spouse's (Malik Yoba) efforts to come to grips with a recent family tragedy; a successful lawyer (Sharon Leal) is too busy for her increasingly exasperated husband (Tyler Perry); a tough-talking salon owner (Tasha Smith) tyrannizes her ex-NFL player husband (Michael Jai White); finally, an emotionally abusive husband (Richard T. Jones) heaps insults on his overweight wife (Jill Scott) while reserving his affection for her supposed friend who is his mistress (Denise Boutte). The film, as written, directed and produced by Tyler Perry features some very effective comedy and, though the dramatic elements are less successful, the script as a whole presents a resounding reaffirmation of the value of committed marital love. Some crass language, two uses of profanity, frank sexual discussions, including references to a character with venereal disease, one incident of domestic violence, domestic discord and divorce. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
