Diary of a Mad Black Woman
Perry's Diary of a Mad Black Woman is the latest series of movies by
Tyler Perry who also happens to star in this offbeat Comedy/Romance &
Drama film which focuses on the relationship between Helen and Charles
McCarter who are unhappily married for 18 years. To compound the
situation, on their 18th wedding anniversary, Charles evicts his wife
and moves his mistress and children in the on the same day.
Helen's anger builds throughout the movie, she finally confronts her
husband in predictable circumstances that almost makes you think you are
watching Days of Our Lives with a touch of Big Mamma. Although the
acting is quite impressive, the script of the movie fails to hit the
target with its Christian and moralistic undertones.
break up the drama of the movie, Tyler Perry's Madea who just happens to
be a man playing Helen's grandmother throws in a few gems of laughter
here and there but unfortunately the two genres don't quite mix.
Definitely a telemovie!
