14 December 2013 9:50 PM, PST | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

New Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas movie delivered great laughs,drama & more. Lionsagate released their new comedy flick, "Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas" this weekend. I just checked it out, and thought it was awesome, serving up extremely hysterical laughs,great drama, and more. It stars: Tyler Perry, Kathy Najimy, Chad Michael Murray, Anna Maria Horsford, Tika Sumpter, Eric Lively, Jr Lemon, Alicia Witt, Lisa Whelchel, and Larry the Cable Guy. In the new flick, Madea (Tyler Perry) ends up ,pissing off an entire department store full of people when she takes on a job there. It was absolutely crazy as she just insulted every customer looking for help, which already had me drowning in laughter,but that wasn't even the main plotline. They were just getting started. Eventually, Madea got convinced to help her friend, Eileen, into paying her daughter, Lacey, a surprise visit in the country for Christmas »

Film Review: ‘Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas’

13 December 2013 12:41 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

To certain moviegoers, the notion of Tyler Perry’s Madea and Larry the Cable Guy volleying one-liners back and forth before segueing into ham-fisted discussions of racial tolerance may seem the stuff of unspeakable fever dreams. But there’s a more positive way to view it: If the most grotesque cinematic caricatures of Southern black femininity and working-class white masculinity, respectively, can find some common ground, perhaps there’s hope for the rest of us after all. That silver lining aside, “Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas” is an exceptionally  poor piece of holiday cash-in product, rushed and ungainly even by the low standard set by Perry’s seven previous Madea films, yet it should be every bit as profitable.

Though “A Madea Christmas” is nominally adapted from his play of the same name, Perry has strangely crafted an entirely different story and cast of characters for this film, with »

A Madea Christmas: Film Review

13 December 2013 10:12 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

You’d think by sheer dint of experience that Tyler Perry would be a better filmmaker by now. The prolific multihyphenate media mogul has pumped out an endless array of movies in recent years, but his latest effort ranks as one of his very worst. Marking his latest drag turn as the titular character with impulse control issues, Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas is one holiday gift that should be quickly returned. The endlessly contrived plot has Madea reluctantly accompanying her niece Eileen (Anna Marie Horsford) to a small town in Alabama after the latter’s schoolteacher daughter Lacey (Tika Sumpter) announces

New 'Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas' Trailer: It's the Most Madea-ful Time of the Year (Video)

30 October 2013 10:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

'Tis the season ... for a new "Madea" movie!

Creator Tyler Perry is releasing his hit franchise's seventh film -- and the first holiday edition. A new trailer for "A Madea Christmas" shows the no-nonsense, cantankerous grandmother (Perry) working as a Santa in a department store until best friend Eileen (Anna Maria Horsford) invites Madea to a rural town for a visit with daughter, Lacey (Tika Sumpter).

It's a classic fish-out-of-water story, with Madea dealing with redneck in-laws and cow poop. At one point, she teaches a class full of kids that Jesus "was born to the Virgin Mary ... J. Blige."

"A Madea Christmas" looks right in line with Perry's previous outings, just with a dash of holiday spirit. The movie also stars Larry the Cable Guy, Chad Michael Murray, Kathy Najimy, and Lisa Whelchel. It hits theaters December 13.
