Madea's shocking lack of inhibition and her extreme escalation of the argument over the K-Mart parking spot is somewhat reminiscent of Mohamed Atta's alleged hot-tempered altercation over a parking space shortly prior to the 9/11 attacks. See more »
During the intro scenes, Madea's driving license is shown bearing the first name as Madea (which is a portmanteau for "Mother dear") rather than her real first name. See more »
I found this movie to be lacking severely in plot structure and and in character development. There are many times when the director's attempts to be funny overshadow any chance there may be for character growth. A lot of the acting was wooden and there were many clichés thrown in there that the director was hoping no one would catch onto. The ending was especially horrendous as it appears the director could not come up with anything else so just made something up.
There were two highlights: Viola Davis' role in the film and when the lights came on in the theater and we were allowed to leave. Other than that I wouldn't want to see it again.
