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.
I'm not a fan of b-movies, and the so called popcorn movies. I only decided to watch this because of French icon and la grande dame of acting isabelle huppert. Given her experience her acting rage and caliber and her previous choices I have no idea what attracted her to this movie. Maybe she's trying to get more established in American cinema not that she needs to. But you can see she had great fun playing that role and added layers to it even though it was poorly and stereotypically written. She was the only one of the main cast who managed to surpass the poorly written cringy dialogue. And she added layers of humor in her character which was a good choice. In a nutshell if you're a die hard fan like me let me prepare you this is not a performance like Erika or Michelle but she was very good I can say and she elevated the entire material. An example of what a great actor can do even with a bad script. Chloe Grace Moretz has A LOT to learn. You can't call her atrocious not at all. There are atrocious young actors and actresses working in films but she's not one of them. She's just inexperienced. Overacting was one of her cons in a few scenes and underacting in others. But overall she was solid. And I believe that given the right script and the right director (and a few more years of experience she can make wonders). Maika Monroe was funny and her character was meant to be funny and you can see that. She gave me the feeling one receives when you're trying too much to be funny. The plot line was kind of silly and the dialogue was at times corny. But you can't expect anything else. It was a movie for you to laugh and relax. Not to make you think.
