Tyler Perry's sleeper hit Diary of a Mad Black Woman (2005) tapped into a gigantic African-American audience with its calculated mix of family melodrama, glossy romance, Christian uplift, and irreverent drag humor. This follow-up, adapted from his successful play, covers all the same bases and throws in Maya Angelou to boot. Perry's soap opera story lines are awful, with their nobly suffering sistas, gorgeous do-right men, and shamelessly materialistic dream endings. But the movie's message of gospel joy and racial pride couldn't be more sincere, and Perry gives an impeccable comic performance as the title character, a formidable matron whose piety invariably gives way to her thirst for whup-ass vengeance. Perry directed; with Lynn Whitfield, Blair Underwood, and Cicely Tyson.
