We went to the movies yesterday afternoon, and saw Madea's Family Reunion. I really enjoyed it. Tyler Perry was, as always, hilarious as Madea, her brother Joe, and her lawyer/grandson (I think) Brian, wonderful cameo performances by Cicely Tyson and Maya Angelou, and it's always good to see actors like Boris Kodjoe, Henry Simmons and Blair Underwood. Review later, maybe, if I feel up to it.

The weather's been gorgeous here. A little cool, but bright and sunny. Wonder what I'm walking into in Topeka next week?

We alsmost went to Eight Below last night, but ran into relatives and had dinner instead. The previews look hilarious for Madea's Family. I love the scene on the bus when she bitch-slaps that kid! Hahaha!

From what I've heard about Kansas from an LJ friend, it's been in the 80's and sunny! Hopefully that'll be the case for you.

The parts where Tyler Perry is playing either Madea or Joe are funny. The rest of the movie is somewhat serious, but a good, uplifting story nevertheless.

I checked the weather for Topeka, and it looks like rain most of the time I'm there. At least it's not snow, like the last time I was there.

Yeah, anything is better than snow. Well, maybe not tornadoes...
I had no idea the movie was anything but a comedy.

It's a family drama, and obviously there's some family dynamic in there, but there are plenty of laughs.
