What Was Up with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's Cameo at the End?
1 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

"Why Did I Get Married Too?" is a good movie. I think it plays pretty well, and the situations are really good. One of the things that makes this movie good is that it's not a copy of the first movie. This movie has a new setting, new situations, and the characters have grown since the first movie. I want to see what's happening with them and how their conflicts are going to be resolved. The drama is not only suspenseful, but it also makes sense. You can understand where all of this came from. It's pretty good to see these same characters who have changed and stretched and how they react to the new situations.

While the movie is good, though, I have to say I was very unsatisfied. I don't know why, but I wasn't as invested in this movie as I was in the first movie. There are moments where the movie drags a bit, and that takes you out of the moment some. But my main problem is the ending. I'm not too upset about Gavin dying, although that did come out of nowhere in a somewhat distasteful way. No, my trouble is with the following scene in the hospital. All of the couples are there soothing Pat, when she tells them to stop and turn to each other to fix their relationships.

Now, first of all, I do understand what this is supposed to be. The message here is don't stay in the negativity and issues of your relationships, but rather fix the problems so you can spend your time in energy cherishing the other person and the relationship. That's a great and powerful message! What I don't like is how they do it. Like I said, Pat is crying, the characters are soothing her, and she tells them to stop and turn to each other and fix it. And that's exactly what they do! Just like that, they fix their problems! That's pretty weak! The genius of Tyler Perry's work is how well they reflect real life. This scene is more of something out of a fairy tale. If you want to show the other characters fix it, then let's see them fix it. Let's have them sit down and talk things out. Having that being said, I believe Marcus & Angela fixed their relationship. We saw them sit and have a conversation. I can sort of buy the Troy & Angela story because Troy worked things out with Mike, but we never saw him talk to Angela herself after the whole Mike situation. But what about Terry & Dianne? The last scene we saw with them ended so heavily; they never worked things out after that! Yeah, I don't like that.

Finally, what was up with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's cameo at the end? That was really random and really pointless.

True, the movie drags sometimes and the ending is weird, but besides that, I really like this movie. I think it's good, and it would been much better if the scenes didn't drag and the ending was more realistic. I still actually recommend this movie. It's not bad, but it could be better. Take a look at it. BOOYIKA!
