My husband and I really liked this movie. It gave us something to talk about, sort out the characters, and we didn't go away asking "What did the monster look like?."

Smithh should have given a award for her role as Angela.She added so much pizzazz to the movie that had it ot bee for her role and Jill Scotts betrayal, this movie would have been somewhat dull, boring, dullJanet sounds so much like her brother Michael.

Oh my goodness, my husband and I love this movie. The cast was wonderful, great selection Tyler. I can watch this movie over and over. My husband is going to hide this movie from me real soon, because I know I've watched this movie at least five times or more within a months time. I really look forward to seeing meet the Browns. Tyler keep doing your thing. Great Job!

This movie was terrific! I love the cast, the story line and setting. It is a true to life movie, so many people can relate and has related during the movie... It is funny and sad. It was really great. Tyler Perry is amazing, he is a talented man. Keep up the good work. I will be buying this DVD, cant wait.

New York Daily News
The problems are real; the solutions are ... well, really entertaining. Perry mixes heartfelt drama with bold-stroke, insult-slinging comedy. Full Review
Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter
As has been previously demonstrated in the hugely successful Perry's stage, television and big-screen works, subtlety and tonal consistency are not his strong suits. Here, the mostly broadly drawn characters and situations on display quickly prove grating, with the film veering awkwardly between broad comedy and melodrama. Full Review

The New York Times
More than anything, a Tyler Perry movie is an interactive experience, and Why Did I Get Married? is no exception. At the screening I attended, it was often difficult to hear the dialogue between bouts of enthusiastic applause and shouts of "You go, girl!" Full Review

TV Guide
Perry certainly loves his divas -- the best parts are written for Scott and the wonderful Smith. Full Review
Nathan Rabin
The Onion A.V. Club
Smith emerges as this subtlety-impaired film's most intriguingly ambiguous character, at times an acid-tongued shrew and at others a bluntly righteous truth-teller. The liveliness of her performance helps ensure that while Married is stiffly written, didactic, and whiplash-inducing in its tonal shifts, it's also very seldom dull. Full Review
