Overview

A woman has to learn how to love and trust men all over again in this comedy drama. Helen McCarter (Kimberly Elise) would seem to have it all -- she's been married for 18 years to Charles (Steve Harris), and over the course of their time together, he's become one of Atlanta's most successful attorneys. But despite wealth and prestige, things are not as they should be at the McCarter home, and on their anniversary, Charles drops a bombshell on Helen -- he's divorcing her for another woman. Escorted out of the house with nowhere to go, Helen moves in with her grandmother Madea (Tyler Perry), a sassy woman with no shortage of opinions and a gun that she's not afraid to use. As Medea helps Helen get back on her feet emotionally, the divorcée makes the acquaintance of Orlando (Shemar Moore), a handsome man who is obviously attracted to her. But after her experiences with Charles, Helen isn't sure if she's ready to trust a man again. Diary of a Mad Black Woman was adapted from the popular stage play by Tyler Perry, who also plays several roles in the film, most prominently Madea; it marked the first feature-film credit for successful music video director Darren R. Grant.

    Great Movie!!

    It's about time we saw BLACK love portrayed with such charm and compassion AND with such beautiful BLACK actors on the big screen! Thumbs up to Tyler Perry and the casting crew - a beautiful blend of great story telling and great acting. The story was very much like the stage play (but I like the ending of the movie better!) Madea was in rare form, but if you can understand the difference in stage acting and acting in front of the camera, you will find a great appreciation for both mediums - the stage play AND the movie. I hope Hollywood has taken note that Black Writers and Black Actors can contribute more in this arena than just movies of crime!

    Great movie. Saw it three times

    If you need uplifting inspiration, this movie is it. The movie critics panned the movie but it was obvious they had no concept of black families or having a grandmother like in the movie. The music is inspiring too and the whole movie reminds us to look to God and he will help us heal and go on. Great movie.
