Storyline

Every year, these friends get together for a weekend retreat. This year sparks fly from the first moment: Diana (an attorney married to Terry) is distressed that the unhappily married Sheila has brought her friend Trina along. Diana thinks Trina has her gold-digging sights set on Mike, Sheila's mean-spirited husband. This year, their unmarried friend, Troy, comes alone. The weekend ends early in disclosures and heartbreak. A year later, the six people - plus Terry's widowed father, Poppy - gather and this time they each address the question, "Why did I get married?" The answers reveal beliefs, decisions, and personalities. At any moment, someone might break into song. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Tyler Perry's best movie by far
7 November 2016 | by nicholls_lesSee all my reviews

The thing I like about this Tyler Perry movie is that it is actually funny. It doesn't matter what color you are, if you have ever been in a relationship you will find something to relate to here. The cast is perfect and each actor plays their role perfectly. One actress in particular is hilarious, I don;t know her name but the character she plays is acerbic and direct in her dealings and comments and it makes comedy gold.

The story is a good one that I know has been told before and the ending is a bit too predictable, but this is a feel good movie.

sadly the sequel 'Why did I get Married too?' is not funny at all.
