In Tyler Perry's upcoming sequel to his dramedy Why Did I Get Married, the same four couples reunite for their annual vacation. But this time they head to the Bahamas (instead of Colorado) and an ex-husband (not a "sexy young temptress") disrupts the fun.
The trailer for Why Did I Get Married Too? debuted last night on Entertainment Tonight. It starts will some vacation fun ... and then seques to the ominous message "One of these couples will not make it" and a sobbing Janet Jackson. Couples Retreat with a whole lot fewer laughs?

With Madea Goes to Jail ruling the box office these past two weekends, Lionsgate has acquired the rights to two more Tyler Perry flicks: Why Did I Get Married Too and I Can Do Bad All By Myself.
Tyler Perry will, of course, write, direct, and star in both films. Taraji P. Henson, who received an Oscar nod for her role in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button will star in I Can Do Bad All By Myself. The film is set to begin shooting March 16 and be in theatres on September 11.
Why Did I Get Married Too is a sequel to 2007's Why Did I Get Married. It's set to be in theatres April 2, 2010, for the Easter weekend.
Lionsgate and Perry first partnered on Diary of a Mad Black Woman in 2005. They've since released six more of his films. In total, Perry's seven films for the studio have earned nearly $350 million at the domestic box office and sold close to 25 million DVDs. Posted 03.05.09 by reelz

A rundown of our reviews of this weekend's new releases:
We Own the Night
"A solid, angst-ridden thriller with strong performances from Phoenix, Wahlberg and Duvall." [Full Review]
Elizabeth: The Golden Age
"Takes dull pages of a history book and turns them into powerful, enveloping, stirring, and gorgeous drama." [Full Review]
Why Did I Get Married?
"Why does Tyler Perry have a job?" [Full Review]
"If one submits to its rhythms rather than rage against them, its acting and just-so overall design prove a more than inviting combination for the arthouse set." [Full Review]
"An occasionally entertaining, mostly tedious exercise in actor self-indulgence." [Full Review]
Lars and the Real Girl
"A lovely little indie dramedy...Gosling is pitch perfect, oozing painful vulnerability down to his twitching eyes and innocently hopeful gazes" [Full Review]
