Audience Reviews for Why Did I Get Married?

  • Dec 16, 2010
    Clumsy structure? Certainly. One note characters? Perhaps. Simple answers to complex questions? Almost certainly. But know what? There's a human aspect to the film which makes it endearing and immensely watchable at the same time. Jill Scott is the absolute stand out here, going from emotionally battered to confident and sexy. Tasha Smith is a joy to watch for another reason: you're never quite sure what she's going to do or say; she's capable of anything. This Perry film isn't about race. It's about people. And despite some structure problems, it is an enjoyable story. Just don't think about it too hard.

    Tasha Smith with her sword like words were so freaking awesome. I simply loved this movie. It's not only entertaining but also there were a lot of things to learn from it. As it's pretty much related to real life. It's like educating yourself about marriage.

    A great drama by Tyler Perry. Great story and the actors were fantastic in this great drama on the life of being married. Four couples retreat in the mountains to see what they can do to help their marriages out and the trials they have endured. Great movie to see.

    My critique of Tyler Perry's movies aside, I'm glad to see SOMEONE is keeping black actors employed...having said that, this movie was...okay. I'm a big fan of Jill Scott and Janet Jackson...as singers. I was too caught up in who they were as singers to buy them as the women they portrayed. Scott's character came across as spineless to me, taking all that abuse from her husband, and I felt like Perry tried to make Jackson ugly or at least homely so she could somehow better relate to the audience. The highlight of the film was the camraderie between Michael Jai White and Tasha Smith. They were hilarious. But this film could've been better. I get the message Perry was trying to put across: marriage is hard, especially without communication. But the acting was subpar, the plot was predictable, and I just didn't buy it.
