Madea lands in the midst of mayhem when she spends a haunted Halloween fending off killers, paranormal poltergeists, ghosts, ghouls, and zombies while keeping a watchful eye on her wild teenage great-niece.
Madea returns in another comedy in which she gets sent to "the big house". Regardless of the circumstances, she gives her trademark advice and wisdom to her friends and family as they learn... See full summary »
Cheryl Pepsii Riley,
A joyous family reunion becomes a hilarious nightmare as Madea and the crew travel to backwoods Georgia, where they find themselves unexpectedly planning a funeral that might unveil unsavory family secrets.
When a family meets for Christmas at their posh Cape Cod estate, family arguments and secrets cause a stir. It takes a real down-to-earth family - like Aunt Bam and the almighty Madea - to save this holiday.
Madea's absurdly-uninhibited confrontation with Miss Smug 'n' Shallow over the parking spot is somewhat reminiscent of the infamous parking-space brawl started by Mohammad Atta shortly before the 9/11 WTC attacks. See more »
When Miss Smug 'n' Shallow begins to waltz across the parking lot toward the BigK after her rude-smiley sass reply of, "I saw you --- I took it!", she starts to cross over the white-painted handicapped-striped area in the next spot over from her car. Several seconds elapse after this, during the close-up shot of Madea doing her "Yeah, just walk off like you bad! Are you bad?!" fuming, yet when the camera cuts away to the wide-angle again, Miss S&S is just barely to the other side of the striped area, which would have only taken her a second or two to reach.

When we were in college, the others made fun of her, about her clothes and her hair, and I started avoiding her. One night, I had a date, and the football team said they would keep her company...
I came back that night and went into my room... and they... they raped her, and I didn't do nothing about it. I'm so sorry.

I said it before...Let's show respect for each other. We can share our opinions without belittling and insulting one another. In his movies and plays, Tyler brings a lot of serious issues to our attention, and he uses the characters to help a lot of people deal with those issues. Now that we are increasing awareness rather than continuing to hide these issues, it's time to do something about them. Don't support Tyler Perry only to be entertained by Madea, Brown, or other characters, or to critique their work. Personally, I wasn't entertained by MGTJ. However, I did leave the theatre with an increased awareness of a very serious issue in our society. There's always a message, worth hearing, in Tyler's work.
If you like APF's (audience participation films), this is the movie for you, and by all means see MGTJ at the theatre. You'll enjoy the commentary, hysterical laughter in anticipation of the punch lines, ab-libbing, etc. Otherwsie, I recommend viewing on cable or satellite - with an open mind. See the bigger picture and ask yourself, "Does this film present issues that I can do something about?" Your commitment doesn't have to be large-scale. Maybe you resolve to challenge your old views.
If you don't like MGTJ, or you don't respect TP as a film maker. Make a better film addressing these issues and calling people to action.
