When Helen McCarter learns that her husband Charles is leaving her for her best friend, the women in her family are ready with advice. Her devout mother preaches strength and forgiveness, while her parolee grandmother, Madea, shows up with a gun!
I loved this play, it is funny and is different somewhat from the movie. Charles doesn't throw Helen out with no money in this like the movie, he leaves and offers her alimony. I love how Helen and Charles stayed together in the play unlike the movie. The movie was funny and good but I didn't like how she left him in the end after he had changed and they were back together. This one fits my personality more.

Made me laugh a lot, made me cry a lot, and teaches you that you get consequences for hurting others that really love you and then shows you that true love can forgive those that really want forgiveness THE RATINGS SHOULD GO TO TEN BECAUSE THIS DESERVES A TEN OUT OF TEN!

I remember watching this play as a kid and to have it in my own collection is a blessing. The way Tyler Perry has progressed is amazing, but to see how beautifully he worked when he had less is absolutely stunning. I am so proud to have witnessed this come-up and I'm excited to see what God holds for his future!
