MPAA Rated PG-13 for drug content, thematic elements, crude sexual references and some violence

Sex & Nudity

  • Charles and Brenda are seen sleeping together. We can see his bare chest and shoulders. Nothing is shown by Brenda all we see is her head and hand.
  • Some mild sexual references.
  • A woman makes reference to the fact that her and a man did not have sex, but had "intimacy" instead.

Violence & Gore

  • Madea carries a gun in her purse.
  • Charles is shot four times.
  • A woman coldly abuses her paralyzed husband, shoving him into a tub and realizing belatedly that he's nearly drowning with his mouth under water.
  • A woman strikes a wheelchair bound man in the face
  • A man wrestles a woman to the ground and drags her, kicking and screaming, out of a house. He then slams the door in her face (but not IN her face, she doesn't get harmed from it. Moreso emotionally)


  • 3 anatomical terms, 48 mild obscenities, 13 religious exclamations.
  • Name-calling (b**t*rd, *h*re, sl*t, fat, etc.)

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Slight cigarette smoking and alcohol consumption. A character battles drug addiction and enters rehab.

Frightening & Intense Scenes
