[4.75/10] Why Did I Get Married Too? (2010)

Why Did I Get Married Too? (2010)

Tyler Perry's "Why Did I Get Married Too" is a sequel to his 2007 film "Why Did I Get Married?". Well, that's pretty obvious. The plot is quite straightforward - Four close couples eagerly reconnect, sharing news about their lives and relationships, gathered together in the Bahamas for their annual one-week reunion. But their intimate week in paradise is disrupted by the unexpected arrival of Sheila's ex-husband, Mike, who hopes to break up her new marriage with Troy and win her back. This sequel was definitely darker and more serious than it predecessor, but it still had plenty of laughs thanks to Tasha Smith's crazy over-the-top acting. She was hilarious, yet so loud and hysterical, she quickly became horribly annoying. However, Malik Yoba and Janet Jackson are the centerpiece of this movie. Janet Jackson really brought the drama - she really did an impressive job in portraying the character she play, who really goes through a lot. The other actors also did a decent job. "Why Did I Get Married Too" is typical Tyler Perry, so it's somewhat corny, a bit rushed and hugley over-written, but it was fairly entertaining nevertheless. Having said that, the ending completely killed it for me - it was ridiculously happy-endish, stupid and totally dissapointing. Overall, "Why Did I Get Married Too" has its moments, but its cheesy ending, overlong running time, and Tyler Perry's poor direction make it just another mediocre relationships drama.

  • My Rating: 4.75/10
