    Synopsis


    Tyler Perry's The Family That Preys
    Alfre Woodard and Kathy Bates star in writer/director Tyler Perry's family drama about an upper-crust family and their working-class counterparts, who discover that scandal knows no social boundaries. Charlotte Cartwright (Bates) and Alice Pratt (Woodard) may be from different sides of the tracks, yet over the years they've managed to nurture a strong and healthy friendship. That friendship is put to the ultimate test, however, when their adult children begin to act out in ways that neither parent ever saw coming. Alice's daughter Andrea (Sanaa Lathan) is married to a trusting husband named Chris (Rockmond Dunbar), but lately she's been betraying that trust by sleeping with her boss, William (Cole Hauser), who just so happens to be Charlotte's son. William is married to Jillian (KaDee Strickland), and in addition to being unfaithful, he's also scheming to take over the role of COO at his mother's lucrative construction firm. Meanwhile, Alice's other daughter, Pam (Taraji P. Henson), and her husband, Ben (Perry), a faithful family man and construction worker, have both recognized that their family has strayed from the course of righteousness, and become determined to help their loved ones back on the right path. When paternity secrets, shady double dealings, and a series of other scandals become too much for Charlotte and Alice to take, the two women set out on a cross-country trip in order to clear their heads and devise a plan for saving their families. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Tyler Perry's Better Non-Medea

      Posted
      aprilaries

      When Tyler Perry works little hard to make a movie without the Madea's character, he can suceed. This movie is one of them. Especially the Sanaa Lathan's charater. She normally plays the good character in movies/tv, but not in this one. Robin Givens shows she can act (like in Chris Rock's Head of State), when the material is right. Rockmond Dunbar (Showtimes' series Soul Food/Fox's Prison Break) also plays against his charater. And the biggest surprise of all, Alfre Woodard and Kathy Bates in a Tyler Perry Movie.

      I enjoyed the movie a lot. I liked that Kathy Bates and Alfre Woodard played such great characters. I wouldn't mind seeing more of them. We need more movies for that target the life of upper aged. Although this movie was for all adult age groups it was neatly arranged and quite entertaining. I still miss Madea and maybe one or two songs!!

      I thought Tyler Perry did and excellent job with 'Why Did I Get Married?', but this movie is even better! He selected the perfect cast to perform the perfect script. I wonder how many stellar movies he will have to direct/produce before getting noticed by Oscar?

      I saw this at the theatre and when it came out on DVD, I purchased it within a few days of when it hit the stores. I watch it frequently. It's entertaining yet portrays situations in the real world today. You should purchase it or rent it today.
