I Loved this Movie!
9 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I absolutely loved this movie. Tyler Perry is brilliant and talented. I grew up in the south and have met many Madea's and can relate so well to this character. Tyler is right on the money portraying this southern black lady. This movie had me and my family in stitches. From my 8 year old son, to my 74 year old mother. It's the perfect family movie. I loved it! Tyler Perry has outdone himself with this movie. I do believe this is my favorite Madea movie so far. Keep them coming, Tyler and I'll continue to watch!! We need more movies that all the family can watch and get something out of, and this one is it. This is definitely the summer must see movie. Everyone in my house is still talking about how good it was and quoting some of Madea's lines. Bring us some more good movies.
