Overview

Laugh along with Tyler Perry as the award-winning playwright examines the love, joy, faith, and trials of marriage in a hilarious and touching examination of the powerful bond shared between husband and wife. A marriage has been threatened by the advancements of a sexy and alluring young temptress, but just when it seems as if the familial bond may have finally withered so much that it can't withstand a little external pressure, the once close-knit family pulls together once again to re-examine their relationships and explore just what it means to devote your life to the one you love most.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Tyler Perry is preaching to his choir with this matrimonial musical melodrama that unfolds during a family’s annual retreat. Terry (Greg Stewart) and “feisty” Diana (Donna Stewart) are happily married. Mike (Cordelle Moore) and Shelia (Cheryl Riley) are not. And “free spirit” Tray (Anthony Grant), Shelia’s unrequited crush, is bringing his “new girl,” none other than Trina (Demetria McKinney), a “tramp since the fourth grade.” Their host is Poppy (Lavan Davis), still mourning the loss of his beloved wife. Too bad Perry’s signature drag alter ego, Madea, wasn’t invited to the party, but Poppy, a boisterous, somewhat lascivious deacon (he speaks glowingly of plus-size daughter-in-law Diana’s “butt”) keeps the proceedings lively. Perry’s play, shot on videotape before a very vocal and appreciative audience, isn’t subtle, but it is effective in delivering Perry’s recurring themes of the importance of family, fidelity, self-respect, and worship (“God is the answer,” Poppy proclaims at play’s end). Why Did I Get Married? is perhaps not as accessible as one of Perry’s Madea plays (Diary of a Mad Black Woman, Madea’s Family Reunion, Madea Goes to Prison), but it has all the soul-stirring, rafter-shaking uplift of a traveling salvation show. Acolytes old and new will want it on DVD, to have and to hold.
