Storyline

Madea's family comes to see her while she's sick, however it's the rest of the family that needs help. Her granddaughter Maylee has dumped her daughter, Keisha off on her sister, Vianne, who has been living with Madea for the past 6 months since her divorce. Chaos erupts when Maylee shows up engaged to Vianne's ex, Anthony, who is out to make Vy as miserable as possible. Vy meanwhile starts to get interested in Bobby, who works for Madea and who's served time, who during the past 6 months has insisted that he's no good. Elsewhere, Madea and her daughter, Cora try to convince Maylee that Keisha needs a mother to stick around with her, but that doesn't tie in with Anthony's plans. Madea's stuck with all her family's problems and a few of her own, such as Brown coming over repeatedly and getting the whole household in an uproar, and the police chasing her.

It's The Message
28 February 2006 | by (Syracuse, New York) – See all my reviews

Tyler Perry makes us laugh, oh does he ever make us laugh. But for TP laughter is a tool to help convey a message. There is no real secret here as to what the message is. It runs through all the plays, it runs through Diary of A Mad Black Woman, and although I haven't gotten to see the movie of Madea's Family Reunion yet, I'm willing to bet it runs through that as well.

Tyler Perry is a dedicated Christian, and that is the message of his work. The teachings of Jesus are filtered through Madea and her wild family, and although Madea says repeatedly that she'll be seen in church "when they get a smoking section," she is the mortar which binds the family together.

Tyler Perry is probably the most talented man in the film industry today.
