Storyline

Madea's family comes to see her while she's sick, however it's the rest of the family that needs help. Her granddaughter Maylee has dumped her daughter, Keisha off on her sister, Vianne, who has been living with Madea for the past 6 months since her divorce. Chaos erupts when Maylee shows up engaged to Vianne's ex, Anthony, who is out to make Vy as miserable as possible. Vy meanwhile starts to get interested in Bobby, who works for Madea and who's served time, who during the past 6 months has insisted that he's no good. Elsewhere, Madea and her daughter, Cora try to convince Maylee that Keisha needs a mother to stick around with her, but that doesn't tie in with Anthony's plans. Madea's stuck with all her family's problems and a few of her own, such as Brown coming over repeatedly and getting the whole household in an uproar, and the police chasing her. Through it all, they prove that no amount of money, nor material items nor empty relationship can offer near what God, family, and ... Written by novastar_6

i totally disagree maybe your head is too far up your butt to realize that humor(laughter) next to health is very essential to life if you were a movie critic no good movies would come out.Every story has a plot even horrible ones.So when u watch these type of movie actually watch them they're not meant to hurt but to help he teaches life lessons. Maybe not the most incredible way to tell it but it still gets the point across. And all in all even the most horrible film has something or another great to offer. your mind is in 'dial up' switch to 'broadband' maybe u can see what i see and what others see. So please take this to the bank cash it and buy ever movie Tyler perry has ever made watch them and love them .
