5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite movie of all times.... June 24 2011
By Lala
This is my most favourite movie of all times and if anyone is searching to find a good movie too pop in,this is the one to watch, it is a drama with at bit of comedy. All the actors/actresses excuted there roles perfectedly. Shermar moore is the sexiest man alive but aside from his looks his acting was amazing in this movie... we really need to give a lot of credit for his performance. Kimberly elise is a beautiful dark skinned woman who is very underrated but is also amazing. Both actors had amazing chemistry in the movie but beyond that, there is something that everyone could take with them and that is through the hard points in life where you feel that it is impossible to overcome this period in your life. In the end, something unexpected happens and it would end up being the best thing that has ever happen to you... i recommend this movie to everyone i know...

4.0 out of 5 stars Diary of a Mad Black Woman May 17 2009
I originally picked up the DVD of the play, thinking it was the movie version. I'm glad I also picked up the movie version. Funny, heartwarming, powerful. It filled in some of the grey areas of the play and expanded the whole story. The actors were quite good. I have to admit to being a Shemar Moore fan, which was the main reason for buying it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Touching, Entertaining and Sweet May 13 2005
By thesavvybamalady - Published on Amazon.com
I went to see this movie the first weekend that it came out, and I wasn't disappointed at all; I saw the original play, and wasn't greatly impressed with it, but seeing the movie, I enjoyed it very well. Kimberly Elise and Shemar Moore gave great performances; Of course, Tyler Perry playing three roles simultaneously was just as good and I applaud him; Cicely Tyson, of course, gave a gem of a performance helping her daughter become more stronger even though she herself has been wronged; I have heard the good and the bad about this movie; I have heard that Madea is just another stereotypical role model that we need to get away from; But let's be honest, how many of us can attest to a Madea in our family? or at least pieces of such a woman? This was one movie that sex and profanity wasn't splashed forward and yet, the critics bashed it; Yet, I found it a good movie, and can all of us who supported Mr Perry opening weekend be wrong? I don't think so; Look forward to the DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent movie from start to end !!! April 27 2005
By Larry Shepherd - Published on Amazon.com
I applaud the earlier reviewer, Ramsess Gray from Fayetteville, NC. Thank you for standing up to all the other so-called critics who trashed this movie. I thought this was an excellent movie from beginning to end. In his big-screen debut, Tyler Perry delivered big-time, no questions asked. Darren Grant, Mr. Perry, Kimberly Elise, Shemar Moore and the rest of the cast were second-to-none in my opinion. I loved each of the characters Mr. Perry played himself, especially gun-toting Grandma. She was funny & very entertaining throughout. As far as best picture and/or any awards are concerned, I think Mr. Perry should have as good a chance as anyone to win an award in some category(ies). Also, in my opinion, Kimberly Elise should win something for her role. And for that matter so should Darren Grant & Shemar Moore. But that's only my opinion. The movie was very entertaining and it had all the qualities you could ask for in a movie. It made you laugh. It made you cry. It made you happy. It made you sad & it made you proud, all in about 2 hours time. I'm sure this movie is not and will not be for everyone. We all have different tastes. All I can really say is "watch the movie for what it is", and that's entertainment at it's best.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest African-American "dramedy's" ever released June 23 2005
By Dorrie Wheeler - Published on Amazon.com
Diary of a Mad Black Woman introduced Tyler Perry and his popular character Madea to the masses. Tyler Perry had long been an icon in the African-American community with his popular stage plays. The film version of Diary of a Mad Black Woman is one of the greatest African-American "dramedy's" ever released.

First of all, Madea does steal the show in her handful of scenes, but she is not the star of the movie. Kimberly Elise stars as a woman who has been married for 18 years. She loves her lawyer husband Charles who is impressively portrayed by Steve Harris. On the outside it looks like they have the perfect life, but their marriage is horrible. They have money and a huge estate but he abuses his wife Helen emotionally, verbally-and physically. The scene in which he drags her out of the house on their 18th wedding anniversary is heartbreaking.

When Charles leaves Helen with nothing she finds herself at her grandmother Madea's house. Madea is so hilarious. She makes Helen realize that she is entitled to money and property. When Madea and Helen go back to Helen's house the adventures ensue.

Shemar Moore stars in the movie a different kind of role. He normally plays the "pretty boy" type but in this movie he is an unshaven, corn row and doo rag wearing blue collar worker named Orlando. He and Helen get off on the wrong foot but they eventually warm to each other. Tyler Perry who stars as Madea, also appears in the movie as Helen's cousin Brian. Brian is a lawyer and he is having marital problems. His estranged wife and the mother of his two children is strung out on drugs. Tyler Perry also appears in the film as the outspoken brother of Madea, Joe. Those two are hilarious on screen together as they trade barbs back and forth. Madea is always one step from pulling out her pistol on him. Cicely Tyson appears in the movie as Helen's mother. Cicely and Kimberly actually look like they could be related. With help from her family and her new friend Orlando, Helen comes out of her shell and starts to enjoy life. When she suffers a set back in her self discovery it appears she might return to the abusive relationship that almost destroyed her.

This is such a great movie. You will laugh and you might cry. Rarely, does a movie tackle serious drama with the perfect blend of comedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars seeing the movie first didn't ruin it Dec 17 2005
By SCMLA - Published on Amazon.com
i saw the movie version first & so was pleasantly surprised to discover that the two versions were handled SO differently -- so much so that they are BOTH worth seeing & (in my opinion) owning. there are some different characters in each & some of the situations are handled differently, but the overall story remains the same &, of course, madea is HYSTERICAL no matter where she goes! :D i also enjoyed the father character in the play version a lot better than the movie version's joe (joe was a little too real-life disgusting for me -- i was having flashbacks to someone i know in real life! =:O) & i LOVED the strong-in-the-Lord singing mom, ESPECIALLY when she sings that song about rebuking the devil -- you GO girl! i also enjoyed the fact that there seemed to be a little more Jesus in the play version -- the movie version seemed to have more of that "sanitized" hollywood feel? i.e. cleansed of explicit references to God, Jesus & the Bible -- which i don't blame mr. perry for & i praise God that he's getting his plays made into movies & reaching a wider audience with the Message \o/ -- you GO dude!
