Why Did I Get Married Too Reviews

There are some decent performances here, particularly from Jill Scott, but they just can't save the clichéd material from weighing down the whole film.

Burdened with a bevy of unlikely plot twists, this is less a movie sequel than the latest installment in a big-screen soap opera.

AV Club

Perry's films are shapeless, but they're crammed to bursting with melodramatic twists, the kind that make the audience gasp as they chuckle. The movie's like an old sofa, overstuffed and misshapen, but so familiar that it gives comfort all the same.

Perry sticks with the pedestrian shots and a Lifetime network aesthetic. He doesn't even take advantage of the film's exotic Bahamian setting.

Easygoing effort at times feels over-baked and too full of Perry's now-trademarked melodramatics.

Undermined by its inability to stand separately from its predecessor.

Worth mentioning is the queasy dynamic in which the male characters' violent impulses are condemned in theory but, when acted on, seem to be implicitly excused, or at least overlooked.

Like most of Perry's treasures, Why Did I Get Married Too? seems to have been shot with no script and on a single take; the majority of dialogue overheard at your local mall's food court is leagues more entertaining.

Perry doesn't pander to critics. His intent is to make positive films about black family life. Some filmmakers like to push buttons, like Spike Lee or Lee Daniels. Perry's morals and values, regardless of art, will always come first.

It's gone way past film bad -- all the way to crime bad, and personally I'd put the act of making Why Did I Get Married Too? on a level with seven burglaries.

Perry seems to be going through the motions on this one, repeating the platitudes and relationship angst that he's trotted out a half-dozen times already.

It becomes clear why Oprah is such a huge Perry fan.

Perry's most obscenely obnoxious, morally bankrupt, and professionally ramshackle film to date. It's appalling in every way, showing a disregard for humankind in a manner that should keep Perry on a therapist's couch, not on a film set.

Finding this occasionally over the top nasty domestic strife entertaining, depends on whether you have a tendency to put your nosy ears closer to the wall when married neighbors squabble loudly, or would rather cover them up for the annoying duration.

For the prolific Tyler Perry, Why Did I Get Married Too? is nothing if not more of the same.
