Movie Sends Out a Message
Too many critics are taking this movie TOO seriously and I believe it
is not Mr. Perry's intent. The movie is to keep the audience attracted
by inserting comical twists and turns throughout – therefore, the use
of Madea. Additionally, the movie explains issues within the black
family while applying a spiritual message and lesson. Although it is
apparent that the target audience was the black family who has
additionally supported Mr. Perry's theatrical career, MY family and I
equally enjoyed it and feel it could be applied to our culture and
ethnic group as well. I am now interested in seeing more Tyler Perry
movies and plays with my family. The issues that face our society are
not color blind.
