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

On top of everything else, the direction is sloppy, the script is forced, and the whole thing feels like a bad hallmark film.

perhaps Perry's time in the limelight may be shorter than he -- or his fans -- think.
| Original Score: 2/5

Perry might be out to create a community spirit in theaters across the country, but, again, that doesn't excuse his thick-fingered mangling of dramatic expression and his questionable taste in racial caricatures. Meet the Browns is a stinker.

Master of disguise Perry's tangled web of narrative threads range from poignant to positively awful.

...[the] latest sausage from writer-director Tyler Perry...

This cheerfully dim-witted film is ultimately a step backwards from its predecessor, the ensemble-driven Why Did I Get Married?

Feel-good film is formulaic but OK for teens .

March 28, 2008
By refusing to really get his hands dirty or to show the truth of the matter, Perry's work appears shallow and uninformed, thus begging the question: Is his work honest?

March 24, 2008
Feel-good themes of resilience, faith and family aren't sufficient to redeem this scattershot single-parent dramedy from the Diary of a Mad Black Woman auteur.

This isn't a movie: it's a buffet at which... Perry piles your plate with spoonfuls of absurd melodrama, a taste of gritty urban drama, a heaping of cheap cartoon, and a big side of corn.

Tyler Perry continues his exploration of the sense and sensbility of the African-American community with this fun-loving celebration of the possibility of second chances.

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.

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

For a playwright-turned-filmmaker still preaching pretty much to a choir of (Tyler) Perry's devoted near-cult following stage-play converts, however, it might be enough.

The filmmaking is often sloppy [and] the plot has some elements that are ridiculous ... but Meet the Browns does have a major plus in Angela Bassett.

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.
