Trivia

When Kim (Kathy Nijimy) teases her husband Buddy (Larry the Cable Guy) about being a "wannabe comedian" she whispers, " He's no Jeff Foxworthy," which was a not so subtle recognition of his time with Foxworthy in the Blue Collar Comedy Tour. See more »

Quotes

Kim: Mrs. Murphy, if I... if I may, our children, no matter what we think, they... they will live their own lives. The world is changing.
Eileen: Not that much!
Kim: It is changing and that is a good thing. Every generation sees a little less division and a little more open minds and open hearts. I think we should be happy and proud that our kids... our children see people as people.

Flawlessly hilarious!
18 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Basically if your a fan of Madea then you will love this movie. I thought it was absolutely hilarious! One of the best Madea movies Tyler Perry has done! All of the characters in the movie bring their own sense of comedy (and of course drama). The storyline is great and I was really entertained the whole length of the movie, not bored once. There were people of all ages in the theater and everyone was laughing through the movie. I highly recommend this movie to all Madea fans/Tyler Perry fans and really even if you have never seen a Madea movie then I still suggest you go see it. You surely wont regret it. I would actually go see it a second time in the movie theaters it was so good.
