Another Treat From Tyler Perry.
13 December 2013 | by augiegodSee all my reviews

Tyler Perry is back as Madea and although yes we've seen him many times as her, he knows when to bring her in and off the screen. A Madea Christmas may not be like the huge blockbuster status that other movies might be right now such as The Hobbit and such but, what the film does have is heart. We get to know each character and their different backgrounds. The movie is a little slow in the beginning but, picks up quick. It's a complete turn around from Madea's Witness Protection which didn't do so well in my opinion as far as the script. But, A Madea Christmas makes up for it and keeps the laughs coming. Tyler Perry is known for his great plays as Madea and you know that if Madea shows up in a movie she'll bring her famous obnoxiousness and through it leave you pondering with a message and a smile on your face. This may not be everyone's cup of tea but, if you love Madea then you're in for a treat. You may not see cars exploding or any fights but, you will see a message that will remind you what Christmas is all about.
