Why Did I Get Married Too (2010)



Critic Consensus: It's bolstered by a strong performance from Janet Jackson, but ultimately, Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too? doesn't add anything new to Perry's melodramatic formula.

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

Top Critic

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

Top Critic

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.

Tyler Perry's worst film.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Hopelessly inert and dreary.

Full Review… | September 3, 2010

Perry has plugged a hole in the market, for sure; it's just all a bit pleased with itself.

Audience Reviews for Why Did I Get Married Too

I love Angela and Marcus couple. Angela is hilarious and never fails me to laugh. But this wasn't better than the first one. I felt slightly bored. But I gotta admit there were some scenes that will make you laugh out real loud. The story is pretty much the same only with some twists here and there. The ending was unexpected and sad.

CAST: Tyler Perry, Janet Jackson, Tasha Smith, Jill Scott, Michael Jai White, Sharon Leal, Malik Yoba, Richard T. Jones, Lamman Rucker

DIRECTOR: Tyler Perry

SUMMRY: Four couples reunite for their annual vacation in order to socialize and to spend time analyzing their marriages. Their intimate week in the Bahamas is disrupted by the arrival of an ex-husband determined to win back his recently remarried wife.

MY THOUGHTS: REALLY different from the first. Darker with a lot more going on. Janet Jackson really brought the drama. Her character really goes through a lot. I read she channeled her brother greivence to take her through the emotions of the movie, which is really sad knowing that and seeing her cry and break down. But it's not all sad and gloom. It has comedy, and it's pretty funny. But that's all Tasha Smith. Her character is as crazy as ever and very funny. I was really surprised by the ending. I was also surprised with the actor who does a small cameo in end of the movie with Janet Jackson. I think maybe there will be another movie brought from that small introduction. Good movie. Just as good as the first. Worth seeing if you liked the first film.

Never boring, but for all the wrong reasons. (http://bit.ly/dKDJ7E)
