Perry stars in the film as Madea and as several other supportin characters . Consider yourself warned, there is far less Madea in this film than in the previous film. In the early scenes of the movie Madea is awarded a foster daughter (Ke Ke Palmer) by the courts. The girl has a bad mouth and is unruly. Naturally Madea "whips" her into shape. Although this storyline was mentioned heavily in the promotion of the film this storyline is actually the least developed in the film.
The primary storylines are those of Madea's Lisa and Vanessa. Lisa is a refined beautiful woman engaged to a wealthy Atlanta businessman named Carlos (Blair Underwood). He is very abusive. Despite the abuse her mother Victoria (Lynn Whittfield) encourages her to stay in the relationship. Lisa's sister Vanessa is emotionally battered and bruised single mother of two. When she meets a handsome bus driver named Brian (Boris Kodjoe), she is afraid to open her heart and love and be loved.
Madea's Family Reunion-The Movie is an excellent film with an all star black cast. Maya Angelou, Cicely Tyson, and Jennifer Lewis are just a few of the talents rounding out the cast. Some of the most impressive acting came from Lisa Arrindell Anderson who portrayed Vanessa in the film.
Madea's mannerism's and one liner's bring needed laughs to a film with a strong and powerful message.
To avoid jail time for removing an electronic ankle monitoring device, Madea is ordered to foster a young runaway girl. Madea and this young girl are hilarious. The girl has an awful attitude which is really a wall surrounding her fears. However, Madea is having none of it and she isn't afraid to use the belt.
Madea's two nieces are having love troubles. One of them has 2 young children and basically has been scarred from ever falling in love again. However, the driver on the public bus that she rides frequently finds her attractive and wants to ask her out. The other niece is engaged to one of the city's most eligible bachelor (Underwood). The problem is that this bachelor is physically abusive. She wants to leave the relationship but her conniving mother pressures her to stay and suffer. Meanwhile, both nieces have emotional issues with their mother.
While the movie is hilarious, there's a serious side as well...dealing with domestic violence, accountability, marriage. At the family reunions, the elders (Angelou & Tyson) address the family to wake up and start caring for one another.
I thought that *Madea's Family Reunion* had some good laughs. There were a couple of dry spells, making you wish that the movie would hurry up. However, there's enough drama to maintain your attention span.
