Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars
Those hoping for another heaping helping of Madea may be disappointed (she has only a cameo), but otherwise Meet the Browns offers everything we’ve come to expect from Tyler Perry. Angela Bassett lends dramatic weight as Brenda, an impoverished single mother from Chicago who gets to know her father’s side of the family in rural Georgia after his death. David Mann lends literal weight as Brenda’s malapropism-prone, supper-loving newfound brother. The balance of comedy and drama feels a little out of whack, with long earnest stretches and sudden lurches into broad clowning, but that too is something Perry is known for
