A Madea Christmas 2013
In A Madea Christmas 2013, a clumsy timeline and clumsy town crisis plague the movie. The bawdy Larry and Najimy, and the mild exchanges between Madea and her ex-beau Oliver, add up to a lump of cinematic coal. The movie is a release from Lionsgate. It is worth seeing for its star power alone, but there are other reasons to skip it.
Tyler Perry, the writer/director/star of the Madea films, has set his sights on the holiday season and the perennial business of Christmas movies. “A Madea Christmas” is his eighth film in the Madea series and is the same stale mix of moral lessons and pratfalls as his other efforts. The film’s yuletide ambiance is a welcome touch, but it is trite dreck.
Boo A Madea Halloween 2016
For a memorable Halloween, be sure to check out Boo A Madea Halloween 2016. The movie will feature the famous mummy dressed in scary costumes and getting trick-or-treated by kids. However, Madea is about to get into a scary situation, which turns out to be her fault. In the film, Madea discovers that her Aunt Bam is trying to steal her candy. However, Madea is ready to fight back and punches the clown out of the box to protect her daughter, Tiffany.
The second installment of the Madea film franchise, Boo! A Madea Halloween is set in Atlanta. The movie was shot over six days. The film received favorable reviews, but it didn’t win over many new fans. The film’s average Rotten Tomatoes score, which reflects its critical reception, is just 24%, meaning that the movie isn’t going to convert any new fans.
Set in the 1980s, the movie stars Tiffany Simmons as a 17-year-old girl. The movie stars Tiffany as Diamond White. She is a high school student who is walking home with her friends Aday and Rain. She has a crush on her best friend Leah, and a frat brother named Bam is the man she wants to go out with. However, the two friends have their own agendas, and the movie will make the spooky night a memorable one.
Boo 2! A Madea Halloween 2017
Tyler Perry’s Boo 2 A Madea Halloween is the follow-up to last year’s highly successful comedy. While it features the same storylines, it plays out more like a rushed improv class. This is unfortunate since Madea is a beloved character and her fans are sure to enjoy the movie. However, the film’s shortcomings should not stop them from enjoying this spoof.
The story is based on the 2016 comedy hit and follows the titular pair as they go on a hilarious trip to save Tiffany from a frat party in a haunted campground. This time, Madea is forced to protect Tiffany from a variety of horrifying characters. While this is a satire of the genre, the film still manages to be surprisingly funny, especially when Madea and her friends are in a situation where they can’t protect their niece.
The plot is simple enough. Madea accompanies Hattie and meets a masked, ax-wielding killer. As the two girls run away, Madea checks on the girl who appears on the road and tries to catch her. While she’s doing that, Madea is accidentally hitting Derrick’s daughter. The girl then runs back to the car, but a group of Frat Boys chases after her.
A Madea Family Funeral 2019
Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral is a highly anticipated film for fans of the iconic character. It is more than just a Madea movie, as it combines comedy and drama with a dramatic heart. A Madea Funeral will give fans an up-close look at Madea’s life and legacy. The film follows Madea as she prepares for her late father’s funeral. The funeral is sure to reveal family secrets that might have been hidden from the public.
The movie is a satire of the reason we should not speak ill of the dead, and the idea of respectability and decorum at funerals. Madea makes an uncomfortable joke by asking the audience how much they knew the deceased, both in the Biblical sense and in everyday life. The response to both questions is the same, but with different nuances. While Tyler Perry’s film satirizes this common stereotype, A Madea Family Funeral is a funny movie that will leave viewers laughing and reminiscing.
Tyler Perry does a superb job of playing the role of Madea, but the film doesn’t do much to advance her character. While Madea’s role is fun to watch, A Madea Family Funeral 2019 is too short to give her a proper send-off. While the movie does give Madea an incredibly powerful role, it ultimately feels flat and lacks any growth. It’s difficult to get past the fact that Perry has only an idea for this movie and decided to add the Madea character at the last minute.
A Madea Homecoming (2022)
A Madea Homecoming is a 2022 American comedy film directed by Tyler Perry. The film stars Perry as Mabel “Madea” Simmons, a middle-aged African-American woman who visits her hometown of Atlanta, Georgia for her nephew’s (played by Bow Wow) wedding.
