As to why Did My spouse and i Get Married is normally Tyler Perry’s big-screen version of his well-known stage perform, and just like all of his work — from Journal of a Crazy Black Girl to Madea’s Family Reunion to Daddy’s Girls — it packs both equally an emotional wallop and touches of crass levity. The film is a buppie ensemble part that confirms Mr. Perry at his most restrained and mainstream-accessible.

Besides Perry, Why Did We Get Married actors Janet Jackson, Jill Scott, Lamman Rucker, Malik Yoba, Michael Jai White colored, Sharon Leal and Denise Boutte.
