MARRIAGE IS AN INSTITUTION THEY’RE COMMITTED TO.
The four couples from Why Did I Get Married? (2007) get back together for a vacation in the Bahamas; well, two of the characters are now divorced, but director Tyler Perry comes up with unbelievable and contrived ways for them to still be a part of each other’s lives. The marital challenges presented this time frequently lead to scenes and clashes that are provocatively stupid in their attempts to generate laughs and tears. The cast tries hard, but this is frustratingly simple-minded.
