Last night my wife, our best friends Cathy and Brad and I went to dinner at the Chop House in Franklin Square, always excellent.
We then went to Pinnacle, the Reagal Cinema multi-plex in Turkey Creek to see Madea’s Family Reunion. We attended The Diary of a Mad Black Woman on the opening weekend, it took us about two weeks to make it to Madea’s Family Reunion. The theater was full, there may have been a few empty seats, but not many.
Tyler Perry has knocked it out of the ballpark again. As you can see from previous post on my blog. I admire the work of Tyler Perry, his theater productions are first class and his two movies are fantastic.
The story behind the movie is a touching, Lisa and Carlos are in a relationship that is not what it seems on the surface, The mother is manipulating the circumstances and the sister is able to deal with the devils of the past.
Cicely Tyson delivers a remarkable performance with a message that is made to her african-american family, but we all should hear it and take the message to heart and change our ways.
I don’t want to give the story away, so go see it. It is well worth it. You laugh, cry and walk away with a life affirming message.
Tyler Perry, you are the man.
