A Madea Family Funeral

Tyler Perry as Madea in ‘A Madea Family Funeral’

According to Tyler Perry, this is the LAST Madea movie EVER! Okay sure. Going in, you have high hopes but not too high because well it is a Madea movie. After watching the trailer, you know that it’s going to be a silly movie. And it lived up to that.

The basic plot is Madea, Joe, Bam, Hattie and Brian go out of town to 40th wedding anniversary party and the husband dies under ‘interesting circumstances’. Madea agrees to plan the funeral. As you can imagine everything that could go wrong does go wrong. The movie is funny. A little too much is in the trailers but there are some other funny moments. Perry gets to play 4 different characters including a new character – Heathrow, Madea and Joe’s brother. Playing these four chracters, you start thinking about Eddie Murphy in ‘The Nutty Professor’. It’s a fun Madea movie but not Perry’s best movies over all. You can go to the theater to see it but only pay matinee or $5 Tuesday.

If you pay full price, you might be a little mad. The movie is cute not great. It could have been better if we would have seen some cameos of other stars from Madea movies. I will say you should stay to watch the bloopers. They are funny. Now we have to see what else Perry has up his sleeve!
