Q
How much sex, violence, and profanity are in this movie?
A
For detailed information about the amounts and types of (a) sex and nudity, (b) violence and gore, (c) profanity, (d) alcohol, drugs, and smoking, and (e) frightening and intense scenes in this movie, consult the IMDb Parents Guide for this movie. The Parents Guide for Meet the Browns can be found here.
Q
Why does Cora call her father "Mr Brown"?
A
It's not adequately brought out in the movie (it IS talked about in the play and in Madea's Class Reunion (2003)) that Cora [Tamela J. Mann] had lived for 52 years knowing the man next door simply as "Mr Brown" before she suddenly learns that Mr Brown is her father. Old habits are hard to break.
