Tyler Perry is a genius ... so, what else is new? I laughed robustly in a few spots. Tyler added what made The Carol Burnett Show so extremely popular ... cast members cracking up over ad-libs ... from day one! Unfortunately, one gets very tired of him cramming the Baptist Church down our throats. I believe that majority of Americans deal with church the same way Madea does ..... been there, done that, and no thank you very much! One thing that Madea isn't is a hypocrite! One of the reasons I like Tyler Perry is that he brings us face to face with problems like the problems that exist in foster care families ... which occurs in far too many real families these days.
The acting is top rate ... the ad-libs are hilarious ... and Tyler Perry is in top form as a hell raising Madea: hero to every abused child in the world! The high point of the play is when Madea gets into the face of the foster mother and Madea's body bounces everywhere ... absolutely hilarious! Some of the singing is top rate, some leave a lot to be desired ... but, the play still leaves you wanting to watch it over again ... fast forwarding passed the religious songs, of course.
A word about Wess Morgan ... the man came across as a revivalist preacher throughout the play. Enough so that I constantly wondered if that was his day job. No, this is not meant as a complement, as he was suppose to be a child protection services supervisor ... and I don't believe there is such a person, like him, in that job. One of the biggest problems in child protection services is that none of them really gives a darn about the child ... its just a job! Wess playing one that actually did care, that was pretty great ... but he took it over the top with coming across as a television evangelist!
