I went to the first showing of Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married. I called myself getting there early but there were still about 8 folks in line in front of me. A group of about 20 women from a local retirement home came up right after I did. The crowd kept growing and growing and that was for the 12:05 show. Being a writer, I like to observe. My ears picked up on the excitement of the crowd anticipating the movie….young and old. I listened to the various conversations. The oldest woman had to have been in her 80s. I chuckled when I heard her say, “I love me some Tyler Perry, but don’t y’all run over me trying to get in that theater.” The reason why she said that is because the box office didn’t open until about ten or fifteen minutes before the movie was supposed to start showing and once they did open up; we all had to stand in another line and wait for them to unlock the doors.
Anyway, you’re not reading this to find out about my experience in line. Why Did I Get Married is a dramatic comedy. The cast ensemble was perfect. Each couple had their own set of issues. The storyline was realistic. I don’t want to go into too many details because I want you to go see the movie. You’ll laugh; you’ll cry; you’ll cheer and you might even find yourself talking back at the screen.
I give it 5 stars and I plan on seeing it again!
I want to see more movies made like this so please go see it this weekend. The first weekend numbers count. Yes, I did check my stub to make sure they didn’t give credit to another film. If people support movies like this; someone might get a hold of one of my books (My Invisible Husband or Paige’s Web) and feel so inclined to make them into a movie (shameless plug 🙂 ).
