The movie is a diary of one black woman's life - and you see her recording her diary throughout the movie. She supported and loved her husband with all her might for nearly 20 years, even tried having kids by him, but could not have any due to being stressed and suffering violent and shameful mental and physical abuse and humiliation by him. Early on (beginning of movie) her husband's betrayal and violent abuse is shown when he pretended to love her before others when receiving a reward at a function, only to be quite the opposite in private with her when going home - he gives her verbal cruelty, physical cruelty - dragging and casting her out of her own home before a woman whom he brings home to replace her (he secretly had children by this woman over the years). That is where the movie began, to let you know why she was so angry and to lead way to the remainder of the story, where she learned the meaning of true forgiveness. She later in the movie found herself, became victorious and met another of which she gained true love.
Even though she suffered throughout the movie by her husband, she managed to keep her wonderful heart and never lost the love inside herself down to the end.
Despite the seriousness of what was to be learned, the movie had many funny moments and laughter as well as pain.
I love this movie for its excellent script, down-to-earth fun, sensitivity, humor, spirituality, music, and superb acting by all, including Tyler Perry's many roles. Tyler Perry manages to teach good morals/spiritual messages in all of his plays and movies, and in this one he taught the importance of forgiveness. It is only through true forgiveness that one can be victorious and free - to move on to a more happy and fulfilling life.
Tyler Perry's Diary of a Mad Black Woman was one of the funniest movies in 2005. Charles and Helen have the American Dream. They have money, a big beautiful mansion, and just about everything you could want.
Helen is getting ready to celebrate their 18th wedding anniversary when Charles comes home with another woman! Charles decides to kick Helen out with just a UHaul full of stuff.
Helen runs to her grandmother Madea, now everything is about to get twisted!!
This is a PG-13 comedy staring Kimberly Elise.

Review written by employee #002 ( My daughter Kierra age 11:)
This is an incredible movie. Author, director, and actor Tyler Perry has such a unique talent, in that he is able to make us laugh, cry, and see ourselves like never before. For every woman who has been down-trodden, for every individual who thinks there's no way to win, this movie is for you.
Diary of a Mad Black Woman deals with the issues of spousal abuse, infidelity,and a woman's need to be free; the importance of family and the overwhelming power of love.
Tyler Perry's testimony about where he came from and where he is now is an inspiration. His character, Madea, (and I DO mean Character) is hilariously funny! I have viewed all his plays except the newest, and they are, without exception, absolutely wonderful.
This was a must have addition to my movie collection, I have viewed it more than once, and will do so again. Diary of a Mad Black Woman is a must see!
Helen is completely satisfied with her life. But the night before her 18th anniversary, her husband kicks her out of their home and replaces her with his mistress, calling Helen's marriage -- and her whole life -- into question. Seeking shelter with her grandmother Madea, Helen tries to put the pieces back together.

I love this movie. I am a new Tyler Perry fan. My husband brought home two borrowed DVD's with Madea's live shows. I never got to watch them but I heard my family laughing and they kept telling me to watch. I did and I like it. So then I saw Diary of a Mad Black Woman on eBay and I bought it. This is done in a movie, not a play (I hear there is a play to this also). I LOVED it! Not only is Tyler Perry's work funny, but thought provoking, and there is an underlying message of forgiveness, prayer, goodness and reality too! There are some things "Madea" says that got me thinking. Especially the part about forgiveness. Subtle church messages aside, I love Madea, I wish she was my Grandmother and I will continue to buy and watch Tyler Perry movies.
