      Audience Member Ma favorite of the madea movies. Hilarious and good story Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/12/22 Full Review Rosana B Gosto muito deTyler Perry, dirige, roteiriza e atua (por vezes em mais de um personagem) tanto em seus filmes com teor gospel, quando a excelente e divertida Medea, uma vovozona sincerona, nesse, juntamente Eugene Levy, que sou fã desde seus besterois, uma química perfeita e mais um filme divertido, com boas tiradas, e o final com as cenas excluídas, erros, a parte mais divertida do filme... Rated 3 out of 5 stars 09/16/22 Full Review Audience Member Funny, original and sweet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL, ages 13+ only!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie shows the lives of two races living different lives under one home in a difficult circumstance. Through this George a needle man and his divided family learn to love each other and connect more. After going into the witness protection program, they left a different more happier family. This movie shows how the family transitions from the family that doesn't communication their feelings to each other to a much closer bonded family. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Stop giving Tyler Perry money to make these films! But seriously this was alright. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member The actors are very mechanical as they deliver their lines, to be fair I could not get past the first 30 minutes of the movie so maybe it gets better in the end but you lost me in the beginning Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Austin Chronicle Rated: 1/5 Jul 7, 2012 Full Review Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle The film is slapdash entertainment not meant to be further contemplated after leaving the theatre. Rated: 1/5 Jul 6, 2012 Full Review Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly George's son asks for Wi-Fi, and Madea says, ''Sure, I can make you a waffle.'' That's one of the good jokes. Rated: D+ Jul 4, 2012 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com Pretty much the entire film is played for laughs here. Rated: 2.5/4.0 Sep 15, 2020 Full Review Micheal Compton Bowling Green Daily News It's a big mess of a film, but it isn't totally a wash because Madea the character is good enough to milk a few laughs here and there. Rated: C- Apr 11, 2019 Full Review Nour Habib Tulsa World The acting talent in this film is minimal. Forced dialogue and frequent lame jokes weigh down this Madea film, making the nearly two-hour feature unbearably long. Rated: 2/4 Feb 16, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews
