Trivia

In New York, when Madea gets out the cab to go into the bank, she asks George why he's speaking in a French accent when he's only speaking to her. She then says she can also speak French, citing mispronounced lyrics to Lady Marmalade ("Giuchie, Giuchie, ya ya dada...Mocha Chocalata ya ya"). Earlier in the film, Barbara flirts with Joe, saying, "Hello, Joe, wanna give it a go?" This is also a lyric to Lady Marmalade. See more »

When Madea comes out of the bank in Manhattan, the camera operator is reflected in the side of the car. See more »

So utterly mindless, so awful. Ugh.
30 June 2012 | by (Hollywood, United States) – See all my reviews

I tried, honestly I tried. I went along with a friend who loves Tyler. I sat and watched and from the opening credits it was clear that these films are an exercise in masturbating the enormous ego of Mr Perry. Either that or he really cannot get anyone to help him make this drivel.

Tyler Perry by Tyler Perry, filmed by Tyler Perry, starring Tyler Perry. See what I mean. Everything about this theft of our time and cash is abysmal. The wafer thin plot, the crass lines delivered without sympathy or fun. The non comedy, the frankly racist stereotyping.

I gave it a full 15 minutes before walking out. As I did so I will admit that some in the audience were laughing. I suppose that his humor must appeal to some in the same way that some people laugh at someone slipping on a banana skin.

Save your money and watch paint dry, its more entertaining.
