    Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns
    Prolific playwright Tyler Perry adapts his popular stage play of the same name in this family-oriented comedy concerning a desperate mother who connects with the family she never knew. Brenda is a single Chicago mother of three who has been struggling for years to keep her kids off of the streets. Suddenly let go from her job with no warning to speak of, the eternally optimistic mother begins to experience a suffocating sense of hopelessness for the very first time in her life. When Brenda receives a death notice claiming that the father she has never met has passed away, she quickly gathers up the kids and sets out for Georgia to attend the funeral. Upon arriving in the Deep South, the once fretful mother is pleasantly surprised to discover that there is a whole side of the family she never knew existed. A crass but good-natured clan that welcomes Brenda and her children with open arms, the Browns' lazy summer afternoons and frequent trips to the county fair offer a much-needed contrast to the stress of surviving in inner city Chicago. Writer/director/actor Perry reprises his role as indomitable, law-breaking grandmother Madea in a comedy that proves sometimes second chances come when you least expect it. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      worst purchase ever


      Meet the browns is nothing like the play. it plays on a whole other route leading up to seeing the browns in this movie. The browns have a exteremly short amount of time in the movie. this movie does not flow well from the begining. the movie is predictable in where it is heading from the get go. combined with some poor acting.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Good movie


      I thought this movie was hiliarious!!! Tyler Perry does again in this spirtual uplift of the play Meet the Browns. This movie is very funny and I think that it is enjoyable to anyone looking for a laugh. I think there are alot of people who can relate to Brenda as a single struggling mother. Go out and see it

      It is a good movie and romantic at the same time.It's not as much as Comedy as you think it is.But Mr.Brown did say some funny things in that movie.I expected it to be funny but it was not all that funny.It's a good movie but not what you expect.

      Good Feel Movie


      Good movie I saw it when it came out at theater I enjoy the story plot even though some it based on the play. Which I enjoy but they put additional storyline in to the plot that make it worth seeing.

      In Tyler Perry's typical fashion, there is great acting, a good soundtrack and a meaningful, life message.

      no good


      If you want to meet the browns, go and meet them in the theater, as the movie does the screenplay no justice.
