Diary of a Mad Black Woman

Corrected entry: Early in the film, at Madea's cook-out, Brian is wearing a blue sweater shirt and full length pants. As Helen gives Orlando a towel, Brian, (stand-in) can be seen wearing cut off pants. In following shots, Brian is again in long pants.

Correction: In a review commentary, Tyler Perry says that man is his stand-in.

Corrected entry: When Helen first arrives at Medea's house, Madea bursts out the door with a gun. Helen screams, "Don't shoot, Medea, it's me Helen, your granddaughter Helen." But then later when they are talking about Helen getting a job, Joe says, "I got a job for you as soon as I get some more vaseline." Madea says, "Joe, that is your family." Then Joe says, "That is your dead brother's daughter. She ain't no kin to me." Wouldn't that make Helen Madea's niece, not her granddaughter as previously stated?

Correction: He says dead husband not dead brother.

Corrected entry: When Helen throws the drink on Orlando, his shirt is barely wet. But when she goes to apologize and offers him a towel, his shirt is drenched. (00:33:25)

Correction: Some fabrics will repel water at first, but if not immediately dried, the water will soak into the fabric. I have two shirts that are like that.

Corrected entry: During the barbecue at Madea's house, when Madea asks everyone to get up and dance it is afternoon, but once the music and dancing begins it is night. (00:35:45)

Correction: Time in movies can jump a couple of hours in a second. It is to show they're having a good time all afternoon into the night.

Corrected entry: The movie is set in and around Atlanta, but when Kimberly Elise goes to get her man, the car she is driving has visible Florida tags.

Correction: I looked very closely. She has Georgia plates on her car. That's a peach, not an orange.

Madea: I remember this dude made me so mad, I didn't even know how mad I was until I went to his funeral.
Helen: Why were you so mad at him?
Madea: Because he hit me. Yes he hit me... and I didn't even know how mad I was until I saw him in his casket, he's 8 feet under.
Myrtle: 6 feet, that's how they bury people, Madea, 6 feet under.
Madea: That's what I'm trying to say, I thought I was over what he did to me until I saw him at the funeral, I was so mad I beat HIM down 2 more feet.



As Helen enters the bar where she breaks off her relationship with Orlando, we see Orlando finish his drink, yet when he places the glass on the counter, it has noticeable amount of liquid left.
