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.

If you're just watching to get some laughs... I would consider another movie - but if you're looking for a drama and a story, then I would consider it
2 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

Like most Tyler Perry movies, it has sizable influences from both the comedy and drama side. Whether or not someone finds the movie funny, is subjective... but I like his movies because of the drama element, the story, etc.

Basically the problem in the movie is there is a Black girl (Lacey) who is married to a White man (Connor)... and the Black girls mother detests White people basically, for a reason that you will find out if you watch the movie (of course like all racist thoughts, there is no logic to the reason). Lacey is... very "scared" to tell her mother about her marriage with Connor because of her mothers ideology - and Lacey has always done what her mother has wanted in the past... and currently, she wants Lacey to get back with an ex-boyfriend

So what happens is both Connors parents and Lacey's mother, Lacey's ex, and Madea, come to there home for Christmas - Lacey's company coming unexpectedly. Connors parents are accepting of the couple (as 87% of Americans are, look it up), but Lacey is hiding this from her mother, as I said before, because she is scared.

In my opinion Tyler Perry did a great job creating a very dis-likable antagonists for the movie (Lacey' mother).

Also for the comedy aspects of the movie... if you like Madea comedy, then you will laugh... personally as well, I found Larry the Cable Guy to be super funny tho... he is also in this movie.

Anyway my rating is 8 stars because I like the drama and story for this movie... the comedy was alright, but if you're just watching to get some laughs... I would consider another movie, since most of this movie is drama.
