Tyler Perry's Madea's Family Reunion is a 2006 film that centers around matriarch Mabel "Madea" Simmons (Tyler Perry) planning her family reunion amidst several family crises.

Madea's niece, Lisa, is engaged to a successful, good-looking man named Carlos (Blair Underwood), but their relationship is only good on the surface because in private, Lisa reveals that he has been physically abusing her. Madea's other niece, Vanessa, has also been experiencing troubles in her romantic life as well and is afraid she let a good man, bus driver Frankie (Boris Kodjoe), get away as she avoids taking another chance on love. As Madea struggles to help her family deal with their problems, secrets from the past are revealed and threaten plans for the upcoming wedding and the family reunion.moreless
