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

A funny, yet powerful and touching play.
24 January 2006 | by (British Virgin Islands) – See all my reviews

I Can Do Bad All By Myself quickly became one of my favorite Tyler Perry plays. The story line is clear, and yet full of surprises. The vocal performances were outstanding, and the strong message of faith in Christ Jesus and the power of prayer was uplifting. Truly powerful and poignant moments were scattered amongst the hilarious slapstick of Tyler Perry's Madea. As for Brown, he is a case in and of himself--he is unbelievably funny and talented. But it was the dynamic between Tamela Mann's character, Cora, and her nieces and great-niece that really tugged at my heart strings. I would, and have, watched I Can Do Bad All By Myself over and over again; and it still makes me laugh. The only drawbacks in this early version of the play were the film quality and the costumes, which were a bit outrageous, but the sheer funniness of it more than made up for these things. In my book, this play is a comedic classic, and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good laugh.
