Madea jumps into action when her niece Shirley receives distressing news about her health. All Shirley wants is to gather her three adult children around her and share the news as a family. But Tammy, Kimberly, and Byron are too distracted by their own problems: Tammy can't manage her unruly children or her broken marriage; Kimberly is gripped with anger and takes it out on her husband; and Byron, after spending two years in jail, is under pressure to deal drugs again. It's up to Madea, with the help of the equally rambunctious Aunt Bam, to gather the clan together and make things right the only way she knows how: with a lot of tough love, laughter - and the revelation of a long-buried family secret.Written by
The film is slightly different from the stage play (ex. in the play Shirley has 5 children, in the film she has 3 children, Byron's girlfriend's name is Rose and his baby momma's name is Karen in the stage play, those names was later changed to Renee and Sabrina in the film, Kimberly's husbands name is Jason in the play, in the film his name is Calvin, Shirley has a brother name Monroe in the play, the character Monroe doesn't exist in the film nor is he mentioned, The doctors name in the play is Dr. Wallace, the name of the doctor in the film is Dr. Evans).

Tammy reveals that Kimberly got pregnant at 13, after Shirley's funeral Madea later reveals that Kimberly got raped by her uncle when she was 12 years old, Byron is 18 which would means Kimberly is in her early 30s and a grandmother to Bryon's son and Shirley a great-grandmother. See more »

I got my money back, and if you agree I suggest you do the same
Let me start I have watched all of his films. Tyler Perry I implore you, please! bring us Afro-Americans, etc., more colored girls, the family that preys, why did I get married and less of this drivel. OK! I will give it to you maybe 1 of your other Tyler Perry presents, Madia.... was OK, 7 maybe out of 10.
After the first 5 minutes of the movie, I promise you this, if you are cracking up and find it hilarious, stay. However, if you watch the first 5 minutes and think WTF; don't waste the other 1 hr and 40 minutes. Wait till Netflix, wait till HBO, wait till TBS/BET carry the movie. Do not encourage this, and just to remind you yes I typically like Tyler Perry Movies.
The most infuriating thing about this is that I know he is capable, as a writer, producer and director of more. Subsequently, in this movie he took lots of short cuts, and it seemed like these scenes were shot and wrapped on the first take. I could excuse it more if this was his first movie and he continually got better from there.
...at the end of the movie, and I have never done this but I got my money back, and there is nothing more than what I would like than to support black movies, any of them Wayans, Spike, Martin, Eddie, and yes I will still see the next Tyler Perry Movie.
Think of it this way out of a 10 rating there is a reason why the average is 2.5, ouch!
