Madea: Joe, did that thing just push you?
Joe: Sho' did. She don't know about us, we Baptist. We tear this place up.
Madea: Girl, I will set it off up in here! I will do a drive-by in this church... she don't know me! You better be glad you at church. Jesus just saved your life, Hallelu-yer!
Milay Jenay Lori: I'm tired of dealing with black people. Always late. And ignorant...
Madea: ...She don't know me. I'm a straight-up thug... I shot Tupac! Yes, I did. We was arguing over a parking place. I didn't kill him, though. That wasn't me.

A delightful insight to a family that lives an everyday life
28 February 2006 | by dducreSee all my reviews

This movie made me laugh over and over again, I cried a little too and even experienced anxiety during the dramatic scenes, but most of all I loved the way Tyler continues to make his creations true to life. All of us have times of Joy, sadness and emotional upset in our lives. I will purchase every movie and play Tyler writes, produces, directs and stars in. We need more real life movies these days to bring us back to reality. The fact that Tyler chooses great actors to portray his characters and both young and old actors to share the fame and wealth is very touching to me. I hope Tyler continues to takes his plays and movies to the communities, so that we can laugh and share the joy with friends and family members.
