Family-Faith Film Review: Why Did I get Married Too?
By Catholic Office of Film and Broadcasting
Tyler Perry’s Why Did I get Married Too? —Dramatically uneven but, for the most part, morally steady sequel mixing comedy and drama and examining the renewed marital challenges of four couples — a successful self-help author (Janet Jackson) and her architect spouse (Malik Yoba), a sportscaster (Michael Jai White) and his hyper-suspicious wife (Tasha Smith), a lawyer (Sharon Leal) whose husband (Tyler Perry) begins to doubt her fidelity, and a divorcee (Jill Scott) whose second marriage is under strain due to her new partner’s (Lamman Rucker) ongoing unemployment. While implicitly endorsing Scott’s character’s remarriage after her split from her abusive ex (Richard T. Jones) — who puts in a remorseful reappearance here — writer-director Perry’s follow-up to his 2007 hit “Why Did I Get Married?” is otherwise all about commitment, though the script’s highlighted values, such as open communication and self-giving love, do not rest on a spiritual foundation. Brief, nongraphic marital lovemaking, a nonmarital bedroom scene, intense domestic discord, adultery theme, numerous sexual references, including mention of sterilization and venereal disease, drug references, frequent crass language. A-III — adults. (PG-13)
