...the characters are less cardboard, the dialogue less awkward than in some of Perry's other movies...

Perry's film made me laugh frequently and whole-heartedly; more so than any theatrically released American film has in many months.

Incredible star Jill Scott is the one to watch in "Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married?" The show is a star vehicle for Scott and an intelligent, entertaining dramedy.

Amid the shout-downs over adultery, male power, and the agony of coping with a child's death, one performance glistens -- Jill Scott's as the sad, heavyset Sheila, who locates the faith that's the source of love.

It's alarming that American film critics alienate themselves from the aspects of Perry's films that should be universal.

Despite the improbable ease of pic's genteel psychoanalysis, the characters are thesped with enough depth and emotional investment to make their problems feel legit.

While delivering the mix of laughs, tears, and spirituality Perry's fanbase has come to expect, this film has universal heart and soul that would speak to a much wider audience.

Bland stereotyped characterizations and invasive cinematography mar what could have been an interesting, albeit uninspired idea.

Tyler Perry again exhibits an uncanny knack for creating realistic African-American characters likely to resonate with black audiences thirsty for such sophisticated fare, even if his one-dimensional portrayal of whites and gays leave a lot to be desired.

Though still a stranger to subtlety, Mr. Perry has learned to balance the obviousness of his setups with characters whose interactions feel genuine.

Could be the date movie of the year. Not a first date. Wait until they're already too invested to weasel out of it. Or maybe use it as a screening mechanism. Just, for God's sakes, talk about things and deal with it!

Watching Married isn't just a helluva lot more fun than reading a self-help, it's a helluva lot more enlightening, too.

Lyrical and reflective, Married is an entertaining inquiry into that everlasting hunt for elusive marital bliss and the empty-hearted casualties that are all too familiar with its unpredictability.
