It's not a movie?
26 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The wife rented Tyler Perrys 'Madea's Big Happy Family' for movie night. And, having watched a few of his movies in the past, I was thinking: "OK, it's not going to be an action movie tonight but I should be able to get through and even enjoy it." Then when it begins I mentioned to her that it has a strange beginning for a movie. It was at that moment that she uttered those feared words: "It's not a movie, it's a play." I started to panic! No less than five minutes later, I shocked myself by laughing out loud until I had tears in my eyes.

I was amazed at how his writing could take you from tears of laughter to tears of sorrow and back again like a roller-coaster ride. And while you are on this incredible ride, Mr. Perry is also weaving a tapestry of spiritual character and good old common sense that everyone can learn something from.

When it ended I wished that it would have gone on longer. I was shocked when I realized that I'd been watching it for two and a half hours already!

OH, and for those of you that can 'feel' music, and you know who you are, Mr. Perry has given you many gifts in this department also.

When I wrote this review the IMDb rating was 4.5 which was shocking to say the least. Even taking into account the unusual number of flakey or half brain dead people walking around today, it still amazes me that someone could watch this play and give it a very low rating. Anyway, I thought that it was so good I plan on buying the DVD to add to our collection.
