Spoilers and melodrama await you!
I'll admit it, I have in the past been a Tyler Perry movie watching fool. Albeit, there are some mad corny moments in the movies, I did actually enjoy watching "Madea's Family Reunion" and "Why Did I Get Married?" (the original).
So when I saw "Why Did I Get Married Too" available on Netflix to watch instantly, I decided to give it a go.
Whoa. I don't think I was mentally prepared for what I saw.
The basics of the two movies -- Four married couples reunite every year for a 'couple's retreat' in an exotic location and do 'marriage workshops'. "Why Did I Get Married Too" has the group vacationing in the Caribbean. In the first half of the movie, the couples reunite and all the regular light comedy commences... (not all that well, but it does.)
The plots for each couple are abhorable.. to save time and bad flashbacks, I will just outline the worst one.
One couple, Janet Jackson's character and her husband announce at the end of the retreat that they are getting a divorce. RUHROW. Throughout the last half of the movie they are having a vicious cockfight over the separation of their money, including a scene where her almost ex-husband almost rapes her, tosses vodka on her, and burns the only photo album of their dead son. Towards the very end, Janet Jackson's character has a fake cake wheeled into her almost ex's place of work with a gay stripper inside of it and yells at him in front of all of his coworkers, "YOU WANT A BITCH THERE'S YOUR BITCH!". The almost ex responds by leaving his work, getting into his sports car and in his haste driving away, gets RAMMED by a huge truck and guess what.. yeah he DIES!!
No you DIDN'T TYLER PERRY! And that was only ONE of FOUR stories of melodrama in the movie. I haven't the heart to type out the rest.. see the movie yourself if you are curious and tell me what you think..
Holy shit! I think I'm going to lay off the Tyler Perry for a while..
