About this movie

As a single mother living in inner city Chicago, Brenda has been struggling for years to make ends meet and keep her three kids off the street. But when she's laid off with no warning, she starts losing hope for the first time -- until a letter arrives announcing the death of a father she's never met. Desperate for any kind of help, Brenda takes her family to Georgia for the funeral. But nothing could have prepared her for the Browns, her father's fun-loving, crass Southern clan. In a small-town world full of long afternoons and country fairs, Brenda struggles to get to know the family she never knew existed...and finds a brand new romance that just might change her life.

...and recycles it for future features. True story. I wish Angela Bassett had more productive film options (like Strange Days). It's hard for Black women in Hollywood. Also a true story.

My very favorite I love about this movie so much Tyler Perry made. From the beginning Meet the Browns started out as a play, then this movie with the same events in the scenes which are on the other plays, and then a TV series spin-off of House of Payne

True story: Shaq the basketball hall of fame star. Father left his family high and dry. The dead beat.
