Movie synopsis
Tyler Perry (MADEA'S FAMILY REUNION) delivers another of his deliciously soapy tales of loyalty, betrayal, passion, and redemption amongst African Americans, this time playing across two Atlanta families, one of whom is white. Kathy Bates co-stars as southern business clan matriarch Charlotte Cartwright, whose lifelong friendship with Alice Pratt (Alfre Woodard) has led to prosperity for both their families. But Charlotte's evil son, William (Cole Hauser), is getting mixed up with Alice's unscrupulous daughter, Andrea (Sanaa Lathan), while her husband (Rockmond Dunbar) stays willingly blind in order to get William's help with his construction business. Perry himself plays the good son-in-law struggling with good wife Pam (Taraji P. Henson) to avoid going down with the ship as resulting skeleton-packed closets explode all over Atlanta. Played out in Perry's patented blend of tearful pathos, sexy snarkiness, moral uplift, and sly humor, this feels culled straight from the pages of a juicy beach novel, in the best of ways. The acting is uniformly ripe, with Hauser brilliantly sleazy, Lathan enjoyably difficult, and lots of old-fashioned "you go girl" charm and grace from veteran thespians Bates and Woodard, who go on an old-school road trip to work things out. The neo-soul soundrack includes songs from Jill Scott and Janet Jackson., Tyler Perry gets credit as writer, director, producer, and star in this drama. But top billing still goes to two talented actresses: Kathy Bates and Alfre Woodard. In THE FAMILY THAT PREYS, the two stars play a pair of longtime friends who embark on a road trip when their family lives erupt in scandal. In addition to these women, Perry has assembled more all stars for his cast, including Sanaa Lathan, Cole Hauser, Rockmond Dunbar, Taraji P. Henson, and Kadee Strickland.

Review For: Tyler Perry's The Family That Preys (DVD, 2009, Full Screen Version)

Tyler Perry writes, directs and co-stars in this poignant dramedy centered on a pair of friends -- wealthy socialite Charlotte and working-class Alice -- whose families stand to be ripped apart by greed and scandal. To prevent the collapse and save their families, the two mothers take a road trip in a vintage turquoise convertible that carries them both beyond their wildest expectations.

Fantastic and Amazing Lessons for Life

This is one of the best film I have ever come in contact with and the lesson is so amazing. Never you sow in evil because you will reap in this life.Jeremaih 12:6 (CEV)"Even your own family has turned against you. They act friendly, but don't trust them. They're out to get you, and so is everyone else." This was exactly what a son intended to do to his mum while a wife did same to her husband and even lied to him for years. The day he found out she was lying he lost every thing except his vision.

The lessons of life in this very simple video is truly amazing. Tyler Perry the director and producer is indeed improving from strength to strength. This is a must have film for keeps.

Tyler Perry delivers

Love Tyler Perry, love Taraji P. Henson. With the noticeable absence of Madea, this film is one of Tyler Perry's more serious ventures. Don't get me wrong, I love comedy and I think Tyler Perry has made some very funny movies, but it's nice to see him do something solid like this once in a while. The cast is outstanding, featuring seasoned veterans of film Kathy Bates and Alfre Woodard. There's an overall wonderful chemistry in the cast, and as is typical of Tyler Perry films, a strong morality message in its story. It's touching and down-to-earth. Two enthusiastic thumbs up.

Powerful, Insightful and Inspirational Movie!

Tyler Perry just gets better and better. He has the ability to weave a story with a variety of characters and bring it all together in the end and that is a true gift. This movie crossed the "black movie" boundary when Kathy Bates was cast and stole the show! Alfre Woodard is a power house as well and her quiet strength upheld the movie. Great cast, fantastic story. Enjoyable to watch every time. Will make a great addition to your DVD library.

We LOVED "The Family That Preys!" 3 Cheers!

This movie was a shocker for me. I wasn't sure I'd like it at all, but being a huge Kathy Bates and Alfre Woodard fan, I gave it a shot.
It was worth every second. Funny, sad, emotional....your feelings run the entire gamut of "what you can feel!"
Relationships are real, concerns are real and Tyler Perry did a jam up job on this film. There's love, compassion, loyalty, strong marriages, betrayal, ulterior movies, and greed. Everything that "can" happen...does!
Here's what told me more than anything that it must have been a good flick:
I watched it with my husband and when it was over, he asked me to start it again and watched it completely a second time!
