When a family meets for Christmas at their posh Cape Cod estate, family arguments and secrets cause a stir. It takes a real down-to-earth family - like Aunt Bam and the almighty Madea - to save this holiday.
This could have been a very good movie apart from a few annoying things.
First Tyler Perry does not look anything like a woman and every time Mable 'Madea' Simmons was on screen it detracted from the story. I am sure there are many good black actresses who could have played the part.
Then the film doesn't seem to know what it is. Is it comedy or drama? It fails in both areas. As a comedy it has it's moments but not enough to make me laugh out loud. As a drama it started well but the way it progressed just made you think what a stupid woman the lead character Helen was. I just lost all sympathy with her.
So as a movie .... Good idea but carried out very badly I'd say.
