The Men welcome CHARMEL SIPPIO of the Reluctantly Adult podcast (http://www.ireluctantlyadult.com/) aboard the Mission to review 2002's BROWN SUGAR starring Taye Diggs, Sanaa Lathan, Queen Latifah and Mos Def.

14 - Why Did I Get Married (2007) by Micheaux Mission

Tyler Perry is a very polarizing figure in black culture with as many people of note congratulating his success and what he's done with it as there are who decry the middling product he creates. No one can dismiss the fact that the man knows is audience and has loyal fans coast to coast. But are any of them on The Micheaux Mission?
