Movie synopsis
Adapted from the stage play, TYLER PERRY'S MEET THE BROWNS is a touching family drama and very funny romantic comedy rolled into one. Angela Bassett gives one of the best performances of her career as Brenda, a single mother trying to raise three children, from three different men, in the Chicago projects. After the plant where she works with her best friend, Cheryl (Sofia Vergara), closes down, she can no longer afford her rent, electricity, or day care. But when a surprise letter arrives telling her that the father she never knew has died, and inviting her to the reading of the will and the funeral in Georgia, she has nowhere else to go, so she and her kids, Michael (Lance Gross), Tosha (Chloe Bailey), and Lena (Mariana Tolbert), head down south to meet her half-sisters and -brothers. Her newfound extended family includes the overemotional Vera (Jenifer Lewis), who is suspicious of Brenda; the wacky Leroy Brown (David Mann), who mangles the English language and wears some hysterical outfits; and the steady L.B. (Frankie Faison), who is married to the sweet and caring Sarah (Margaret Avery) and has become the patriarch now that Pops Brown has died. In the meantime, Michael, a high school basketball star, is being pursued by Harry (Rick Fox), a talent scout who is also interested in Brenda. Bassett is outstanding as the dedicated mother who sacrifices her personal life in order to do whatever she can for her children. But Mann nearly steals the show as the wild and crazy Leroy, especially during the funeral scene (outtakes of which run during the closing credits). Perry, the creator of such hit films as DIARY OF A MAD BLACK WOMAN and MADEA'S FAMILY REUNION as well as the television series HOUSE OF PAYNE (all of which feature recurring characters), also appears in the film as Uncle Joe and, in a riotous subplot, Madea, who is on the run from the law.

Editorial reviews

"Angela Bassett, as Brenda, turns in the most forceful and self-possessed performance seen in a Perry film."
Los Angeles Times - Mark Olsen (03/24/2008)

"MADEA GOES TO JAIL is both slapstick adn social drama, and it is certainly the most confident mix of the two that Perry has managed to achieve with this particular part of his vast media franchise."
Washington Post (02/21/2009)

ANOTHER GREAT TYLER PERRY MOVIE

I OWN AND HAVE SEEN ALL OF TYLER'S MOVIES AND PLAY. THIS ONE IS TEH BEST ONE I HAVE SEEN SINCE DIARY OF A MAD BLACK WOMEN. THIS ONE HAS NOW BECOME MY FAVORITE. IT SHOWS STRUGGLES OF AN AVERAGE AFRICAN AMERICAN SINGLE MOM AND HER KIDS JUST TRYING TO DO THE BEST THEY CAN TO SURVIVE. IT SHOWS YOU THAT IN TIME, IF YOU BELEIVE IN GOD, HE WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU AND THINGS IN YOU LIFE WILL TAKE A TURN FOR THE POSITIVE. EXCEELNT JOB TYLER.THIS PARTICULAR VERSION HAS BOTH FULL AND WIDESCREEN SO IT PLEASES EVERYONE. ABSOLUTELY HYSTERICAL.

Enjoyable movie if you can get past Basset

Tyler Perry's plays and movie always have much needed wisdom and direction at their core. They are never without the themes of forgiveness,hope, and love.

In today's world of foolish concepts surrounding relationships his work is like a breath of fresh air cutting through the BS to the heart of being human and the real needs we all have.

This offering is not his best. It's has wonderful highlights of comedy but misses it with the lead female character. Another female lead would have lifted this movie rather than drag it down, which is why I considered a low rating.

I found Basset to be merely annoying and overdone as the angry woman struggling to survive. A good actress, but not in this. She failed to gain interest or concern for her plight from me.

As a female who is very aware of the hardships many women face I tried my best to not find her so difficult to watch and look for something to make me care about the character. It didn't work. Her scene chewing and grossly overwrought performance took the heart out of a good story with many funny or touching moments.

It's worth a few bucks and time for the rest of the cast and Tyler's other characters and his sterling message. The feel good uplifting of family,redemption and love gets the good rating.
