Tyler Perry's gun-toting, irreverent granny Madea, played by Perry himself, has been entertaining theater audiences with plays like Diary of a Mad Black Woman and Madea's Family Reunion.

Madea and her colorful crazy neighbor and classmate, Mr. Brown (whose wife from the previous play, Mattie, died from Alzheimer's and was cremated) help married couple Corey and Trina Jeffrey (Terrell Carter, Pamela Taylor) come to terms with infidelity. A woman (Cheryl "Pepsii" Riley) hurt by years of torment must give up prostituting herself with her abusive babydaddy (D'Wayne Gardner), and reconcile with her tired elderly mother (Chandra Currelly-Young) who was fired by the evil manager of the Pandora (Chantel Christopher), who is having an...

I had never even heard of Tyler Perry OR Madea until the first time I watched this play. I almost got up and turned it off when I realized that this play stared a man in drag. After watching this movie the first time I was hooked on both Tyler Perry and Madea. For me personally this movie helped me through a hard time and turned me into a born again Christian.
I agree with the previous comment about the beginning of the play. Each member of the cast's life is effected by Jesus in a powerful way. It does turn into a happy story for everyone and show's the power of God and the good he does.
