Madea gets coaxed into helping a friend pay her daughter a surprise visit in the country for Christmas, but the biggest surprise is what they'll find when they arrive.

When Kim and Buddy are in the hallway about to give Eileen hot chocolate, you can hear the song "Do You Hear What I Hear?" playing in the background, which is performed by Tamar Davis, who acted in Madea's Christmas the play. See more »
[Madea's milking cows]
That one never lets me milk her.
The black and white one over there?
[Madea and Buddy laugh]
Son, if somebody grabs your testicles, do you squirt out milk?
Don't answer that. That's a bull!

Another okay Tyler Perry movie
Let me first say that I am a fan of the man Tyler Perry. His struggles, his perseverance, his rise to fame are inspirational to me and to so many others. He has had a hand full of good movies: A Diary of Mad Black Woman, The Family that Preys and the first Why Did We Get Married. Then, he has several movies that have a character and/or a scene and/or a particular actor/actress I like in them. I usually enjoy these movies and could see them again. Then there are the truly awful movies like the second Why Did We Get Married.
Madea's Christmas is in the second group. I enjoyed this movie more than I expected to. There were some opportunities to laugh out loud. The cast was fine especially Anna Marie Horsford and Larry the Cable Guy. There were the poignant moments and once I actually had a tear trying to pop up in one eye. Seeing Blair from the Facts of Life was nice.
If you are expecting an Oscar worthy movie, you will get your feelings hurt. If you want a movie you can enjoy with your family (they could have edited out the use of a particular curse word), you will be okay.
