Madea's Family Reunion

on February 24, 2006 by Tim Cogshell
A sequel to "Diary of a Mad Black Woman," "Madea's Family Reunion" follows the exploits of the wildly popular Madea character, created and performed by writer/director Tyler Perry. Perry first developed Madea in a number of stage plays wherein this unsinkable, unflappable stereotype of a black southern matriarch sets right the lives of her extended family with a combination of tough love and caustic homey witticisms.

In this sequel, she does and says the same things she did and said in the first film, which are the same things she did and said in the stage plays, effectively. Anyway, if you liked it before you will like it here. If, on the other hand, you find these trite recitations of overwrought stereotypes tiresome, you've probably already avoided the previous movie and the plays and should continue doing so. Starring Tyler Perry, Blair Underwood, Lynn Whitfield, Boris Kodjoe and Henry Simmons. Directed and written by Tyler Perry. Produced by Reuben Cannon and Mike Upton. A Lions Gate release. Comedy. Rated PG-13 for mature thematic material, domestic violence, sex and drug references. Running time: 107 min
