March 7, 2006
Perry's vaudevillian shamelessness and indifference to committee-approved taste are energizing and frequently jaw-dropping.

Let's not sell Tyler Perry short. As the vinegar-witted Madea, he's a drag performer of testy charm, but in his overlit patchwork way he's also making the most primal women's pictures since Joan Crawford flexed her shoulder pads.

Brimming with cliches, Madea, like Diary, has an undeniable appeal, for those who can stick with it, in its earnest and unfashionable conviction.

A generally enjoyable mess.

Some parts of Tyler Perry's new movie are better than others -- and all of it is better than Diary of a Mad Black Woman, his last one.

February 27, 2006
This happy mash-up of romance, drama, low comedy and high drama works because it is all tied together by Perry's open-hearted conviction.

For his revolutionist's passion and for allowing Tyson to once again fill the screen with her glory, Tyler Perry is my new hero.
February 24, 2006
[The film is] too long and its tone is disconcertingly uneven, but Perry never betrays or condescends to his characters: He agonizes with their unhappiness and rejoices in their victories.

There's a ragged road-show texture to Madea's Family Reunion, which, along with the rest of the movie, would be easy to dismiss if one didn't suspect that it might be calculated.

Perry has a heart as big as Madea's so, as the writer-director, he ensures his movie has the right sentiments.

No question, Tyler Perry knows what he's doing, and he's doing it better with each movie.

Domestic violence, incest and greed are some of the issues that boil over in this sweet and sour comedy that adheres to theatrical guidelines that are seldom politically correct.

Tyler Perry means well, but there is no denying that all of this would work far better on daytime television.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 24, 2012
The dysfunctional script and operatically excessive direction ... land someplace closer to outsider art than bad moviedom.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

All the while Madea's wit, which is refreshing on the stage, feels spurious and often misfires.

If there's one thing that Reunion doesn't lack, it's good intentions. Unfortunately, good intentions don't automatically guarantee a good movie.
November 1, 2006
Although his work isn't high art and is occasionally problematic, he's telling stories that aren't often told. And for that, this black woman can't be too mad at him.
