MAD BLACK WOMAN VERY SANE
Here is a first. It's the beginning of Christians making films about the Christian life, without just a visit to the gospel crusade. Not that I don't like billy Graham movies. But this is a departure - a refreshing departure from that.
This is from the heart and soul. and funny? Tyler Perry using the fat, old black woman is not old - his version is entirely wonderful.
My jaw was dropping. I had planned to walk out. Drama intense and meaningful, and humor, a good depiction of the faith, and good actors. Kimbery Elise is amazing.
Not for kids. PG-13, 2005
