Goofs

In order for the zombie attack to take place, the college students would have needed to know that Madea would be trying to go to the church, and that her car would break down in a specific part in the woods, all of which were spontaneous and therefore unpredictable. See more »

Ehhh
20 April 2017 | by slimer8489See all my reviews

I saw this film in the theater because it was something to do and it was only like, $5. Having never seen a Madea film in my life, I went into this film with an open mind.

It was okay. I mean, Madea steals the show once she's on-screen, and I like how she's this no-nonsense African-American granny who's not afraid to kick someone's ass if they deserve it. For first-time viewers like myself, this is new and refreshing, but here's the thing: This is like, the 9 billionth Madea movie, so to fans of the franchise, this could get old real quick. As for the comedy, it was a lot better than most of the comedies that are released today, which just feature excessive amounts of curse words and private part jokes because they think it's funny. This movie actually had a few moments where I laughed, like when Madea punches the clown. But the comedy was also insufferable in some scenes. For example, when Tyler Perry's character (the father, who is the only character he plays in this movie who's NOT in drag) is laying down the ground rules to Madea and her friends, his father does the old "back in my day" bit, and it just goes on and on and on for like, 20 minutes. Save this for the director's cut, will you? But it's not just that scene that dragged. There's a couple other scenes that have the same problem, where it just drags. Also unlike comedies of today, this movie does have heart, I'll give them that. Like, there's some moral about how the dad is a real pushover, so at the end, he finally stands his ground and lays down the law to his daughter. That's good, I guess. But this movie had it's fair share of bad moments. Like I mentioned earlier, some of the scenes dragged on for eternity, but there's this one part where the daughter is at the party she sneaked to and after only one thing goes wrong, her friend is just like, "You're ruining the party!" Like, what? Only one thing happened. How could she be ruining the party by only doing one thing?

Overall, it was entertaining. It had some funny scenes, it had some heart, and it kept my attention. I was surprised to find out that this movie is 103 minutes, since it went by so quickly.

I guess Madea fans might enjoy it. First-time viewers might get a kick out of it. Check it out if you want.
