  1. While Witness Protection was a slight deviation in quality from Perry's previous films, I saw this one to give him another chance. This movie was awful! I think Perry touched on interesting subject matter in terms of the relationship between the two main characters and the class and race issues which surrounded them. Madea had about two or three funny lines throughout the movie which can be seen in the movie previews. However, the acting was terrible,the storyline dragged and parts of it seemed completely implausible. Who would believe that a "city girl" from Atlanta ends up living on a farm in rural Alabama and still walks around in 5 inch heels on a farm. The random phone call from her ex which started the movie also seemed unbelievable and caused the movie to get off to a very rocky and slow start. After wasting my time with this movie I think Perry should stop making Madea films. The formula is old and not working anymore. Don't waste your time seeing this.

  2. NOTE:Excuse me for writing my review too late from it's release. I keep forgetting to review this film.

    "Madea's Witness Protection" and "Alex Cross" were bad enough, but this Tyler Perry film is awful. It's that same thing every freaking time. This "hellur" crap has gotten annoying. Those unfunny southern accents were forced. This movie was not as funny as "Diary Of A Mad Black Woman", "Madea's Family Reunion", "Madea Goes To Jail", "I Can Do Bad All By Myself", and "Madea's Big Happy Family".

    "A Madea Christmas" stars Tyler Perry, Anna Maria Horsford and Larry The Cable Guy. Yep, that's how it goes down. It involves southern country accents, farming and racism.

    Seriously, dude. The same thing every film. I'm sorry, but c'mon. The main thing I don't like about Tyler Perry is that he puts all of the funny/unfunny moments in the trailer, then the has a depressing story.

    Madea is not funny anymore. These films were not any good after "Madea's Big Happy Family". Tyler Perry's movies have gotten boring. But I'll give him credit because it is hard for a man to dress as a woman and make his voice high-pitched.

    Again, this movie is painfully awful and unfunny. I didn't even finish this piece of crap.

    I give this film a 2/10.

  3. Let me first say that I am a fan of the man Tyler Perry. His struggles, his perseverance, his rise to fame are inspirational to me and to so many others. He has had a hand full of good movies: A Diary of Mad Black Woman, The Family that Preys and the first Why Did We Get Married. Then, he has several movies that have a character and/or a scene and/or a particular actor/actress I like in them. I usually enjoy these movies and could see them again. Then there are the truly awful movies like the second Why Did We Get Married.

    Madea's Christmas is in the second group. I enjoyed this movie more than I expected to. There were some opportunities to laugh out loud. The cast was fine especially Anna Marie Horsford and Larry the Cable Guy. There were the poignant moments and once I actually had a tear trying to pop up in one eye. Seeing Blair from the Facts of Life was nice.

    If you are expecting an Oscar worthy movie, you will get your feelings hurt. If you want a movie you can enjoy with your family (they could have edited out the use of a particular curse word), you will be okay.

  4. Tyler Perry is a very interesting person. He gives Tommy Wiseau a run for his money. In pretty much all his movies, there is random sub-plot drama that I love to make fun of. There is always some woman in an abusive relationship or trying to better herself, up to a family member slowly dying from a disease. Personally, I just wish he'd stick directly on the Madea character. She's the main star that everyone wants to see. That's what was great about her last outing, Witness Protection. It was basically focused on her and dealing with Eugene Levy's family.

    A Madea Christmas kinda returns to the basics with a little family drama, but not overkill. It was the right amount of drama and the right amount of Madea. It's filled with good comedy, cheesy but funny one- liners, good messages, and should hopefully put you in the Christmas spirit.

    Madea is working part-time at a department store for the holidays with her friend, Eileen. Eileen is depressed because her daughter, Lacey won't be able to make it home for Christmas. Eileen asks a reluctant Madea to help drive her out to Alabama to Lacey's for Christmas. Lacey is startled because she has not told her mom that she has married a white man named Conner. Lacey soon has to deal with in-laws, keeping secrets from her mom and trying to get the Christmas Jubilee to keep its religious tone. If you love Madea and Christmas movies, I highly recommend A MADEA Christmas!!!
