91
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
It's probably the impresario's best-made movie yet, his most joyful, and his most moving.
75
Boston Globe - Ty Burr
It's the best Tyler Perry movie to date - the writer/director/actor/mogul's most confident and competent mixture of uplifting black middle-class melodrama and low-down comedy.
75
Philadelphia Inquirer - Carrie Rickey
A double shot of Saturday-night lowdown chased by a cheery chug of Sunday-morning uplift.

New York Daily News - Elizabeth Weitzman
Perry also spices things up with two of his most reliable fallbacks: music, and Madea. Having packed his cast with singers, he allows them all a moment to shine, with songs that deliver his patented lessons (trust in yourself, trust in others, trust in God).

I Can Do Bad All by Myself (2009)


When Madea catches sixteen-year-old Jennifer and her two younger brothers looting her home, she decides to take matters into her own hands and delivers the young delinquents to the only relative they have: their aunt April. A heavy-drinking nightclub singer who lives off of Raymond, her married boyfriend, April wants nothing to do with the kids. But her attitude begins to change when Sandino, a handsome Columbian immigrant looking for work, moves into April's basement room. Making amends for his own troubled past, Sandino challenges April to open her heart. And April soon realizes she must make the biggest choice of her life: between her old ways with Raymond and the new possibilities of family, faith ... and even true love.
