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. Through it all, they prove that no amount of money, nor material items nor empty relationship can offer near what God, family, and ... Written by novastar_6

Excellent play
24 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tyler Perry is one of the most imaginative and gifted playwrights today. This play is filled with humor and meaning. I especially like the Christian applications in each one of his plays. The music is co-written by Tyler Perry, and I find it to be very uplifting and inspiring as a Christian. I always sing right along with all of the songs in the play. The cast is comprised of very gifted individuals who can sing as well as act. Mr. Perry also has a knack for taking everyday complicated situations and adapting them for his plays. These are a favorite in my household. These plays are definitely a refreshing vacation from some of the vulgarity and depravity in some of the films you see today.
