This is a great story. I have watched it several times now. Tyler Perry shows that he is versatile and can venture beyond the awesome character Madea. Great work Tyler.

I LOVED it and Tyler just keeps getting better with those underlining messages on family being the most important thing. No matter who makes up your family; either biological or adopted in some way FAMILY means everything

Tyler Perry is the WORST! I watched it becaues my favorite actress Sonaa Lathan was in it, bu I was so dissapointed. The plot lines are predicitable, there is a lot of overacting and stereotypical characters...I coud go on. I just don't understand how this man is able to continue making movies!

I love of all Tyler Perrys films because they focus on the family and tell just how funny (and screwed up) we can be. I also loved the song by Gladys Knight and hope the cd will be released with hre version. (no offence to Lee Ann Rymes).

This movie shows, through Sanaa's role of Andrea, how messed up little girls can become when their Dad's do dirt!!! Dad's never leave your girls. If you do, they will end up abusers who pretend to be the man you were suppose to be!

The movie was fantastic, and the casting was perfect. I am disappointed that they are not releasing a soundtrack from the movie. I absolutely love the Gladys Knight version of "I Hope You Dance."

Tyler Perry surprised me so much with this movie. I loved it and all I can say is "Thank God" for a movie that showed a powerful & spirtual message. So now when is the sound track availabe. "Gladys Knight hit a home run" too.

I love Tyler Perry and couldn't wait for "Why Did I Get Married" to come out on DVD however, "The Family That Preys" did not hold the same thrill and excitement. There were too many holes and unanswered questions. It did drag on and most of it was predictable. It would have been nice to see the actual wedding and to see how the affair developed. It was too choppy.

I just finished watching this movie and it was great! Tyler Perry never ceases to amaze me - I have all his movies. And I love the song I Hope You Dance - it lets us know that we really need to live life to the fullest

Just saw the movie, i thought it was great. We need more movies like this, that a family can all sit together and look at, laugh, cry and be entertained with 'clean stuff'. Soundtrack is great, where can I find what songs were used and the authors?

I loved this movie and the sund track is fantastic. Glady Knight is awesome as ever and did a great job signing Dolly's song.
