Fresh: Perry's] films are hardly realistic, but they aren't exercises in pure escapism either. They offer comic relief and moral correction. And if they feel corny and hokey at times...that is partly because they make everyone who sees them,

Fresh: Unlike Diary, the drama here is buoyant enough to handle the contrast of its too-silly slapstick.
- Aaron Hillis, Village Voice, Tuesday, March 25, 2008
Rotten: On top of everything else, the direction is sloppy, the script is forced, and the whole thing feels like a bad hallmark film.

Meet The Browns is yet another good film from Tyler Perry. I love the Tyler Perry films with Madea...you can always count on quality and a good message. I love Angela Bassett whom shines as a single working mother in Chicago of 3 children. No assistance and getting into some financial problems...enters the Browns...what a crazy family. The Browns help Angela and her children find that family are strong together and can make things all work out.
