The importance of faith, church, kin, staying off drugs, sharing food, repenting from sin, forgiving sinners, appreciating a good black man, rejecting a bad one, and honoring black matriarchy is enumerated with typical, reassuring Perry broadness.

Unlike Diary, the drama here is buoyant enough to handle the contrast of its too-silly slapstick.

Meet the Browns is packed with raucous dinner-table banter and broad double takes; sometimes the gags are funny, but usually they're just trying too hard.

To appreciate Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns, there's really only one requirement: Loosen up.

There are a few laughs and some touching moments, but nothing you couldn't get by watching episodes of Good Times and Little House on the Prairie back to back.

Whatever progress the man was making, Browns is a Madea-sized big fat step backward.

Meet the Browns is saddled with the usual quotient of phony snafus and entanglements that are easily untangled.

Eventually something's got to give, and the slapdash feel of Meet the Browns hints that [Perry] might need to give himself a break.

While Bassett's performance deserves a better forum than Perry can provide, she gives his latest movie a sense of dignity its predecessors lacked.

An adaptation of one of his stage plays, Meet the Browns gives off the distinct feeling that Perry is treading water or at the very least is content to satisfy his audience with the minimum.

Meet the Browns, the latest Tyler Perry film, has a good heart. But it's a mess of a movie.

It's Tyler Perry's aesthetic in a nutshell: strong, suffering female protagonists, no-good men, clear-cut ethical quandaries, schizophrenic tonal shifts handled as gracefully as bumper-car collisions, and a complete absence of moral ambiguity.

It'd be nice if [Perry] took more time to think about lighting and staging a scene -- but hey, he really doesn't have to.

The film demonstrates all too vividly its creator's penchant for soap opera-style melodramatics, absurdly broad comedy and offensively stereotypical characterizations.

Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns often plays more like Tyler Perry's Greatest Hits as it recycles various elements from the writer-director's earlier works.

[Perry's] films are hardly realistic, but they aren't exercises in pure escapism either. They offer comic relief and moral correction. And if they feel corny and hokey at times...that is partly because they make everyone who sees them,

It would take a stony critic to dismiss entirely the movie's tribute to the virtues of perseverance and generosity.
