Critic Reviews of "Diary of a Mad Black Woman"Toronto StarMarch 18, 2005
It's never less than watchable, a bizarre hybrid that somehow works as a whole, even though its various components don't mesh.Globe and MailMarch 18, 2005
It's a cheap melodrama that presses all the right sentimental buttons.Salon.comFebruary 25, 2005
Perry doesn't have any delusions of artistry, and potentially, at least, that's refreshing. But any points he earns for lack of pretense are immediately gobbled up by his lack of subtlety.San Francisco ChronicleFebruary 25, 2005
Raucous and overwrought, the movie is still a hoot to watch and even more fun to talk back to.Seattle TimesFebruary 25, 2005
The material comes off as a serious miscalculation in Perry and director Darren Grant's film adaptation.New York PostFebruary 25, 2005
Stay clear of this mess.TheFilmFile.comNovember 14, 2013
It is a film full of jagged edges, but one that is sincere and beguiling at its core.Antagony & EcstasyJanuary 19, 2012
[Jams] together not two but three separate genres that probably should have remained that way.Common Sense MediaDecember 22, 2010
Syrupy drama -- not much here for kids.Long Island PressMarch 30, 2007
In an extremely strange genre combo, inner city gross out comedy meets evangelical passion play in Diary Of A Mad Black Woman.Princeton Town TopicsFebruary 17, 2007
What ruins this revenge flick is Madea's boorish, bull in the china store act reminiscent of the sassy black woman stereotype popularized by Sanford and Son's Aunt Esther. Loud and ignorant, Medea tends to trivialize every scene.Christianity TodayNovember 01, 2006
A satisfying end, but it takes a lot of work -- and a lot of suspended disbelief -- to get there.
