Movie Details

Experience the origins of playwright/actor Tyler Perry's number-one box-office smash in this filmed performance of the original stage hit. Featuring none other than Perry himself in the dual roles of Daddy Charles and Madea, this comic tale of love lost and life reclaimed is sure to warm the soul as it tickles your funny bone. When successful attorney Charles McCarter files for divorce from his wife, Helen, after a lengthy marriage so that he can marry another woman, Helen's hopes of continuing to live the American dream are shattered. Though the devastation of her failed marriage leaves Helen doubtful about her future, a little help from reefer-loving, gun-toting granny Madea (Perry) goes a long way in raising her spirits and showing her that she has yet to enjoy the best years of her life. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
