We've been ever so slowly collecting more Madea movies, and stumbled onto this one while looking through Prime I think it was. We loved it and wanted it as part of the movie library. Plays beautifully and is in widescreen as described. If you love Madea, I'm sure you'll like this one as much as the others.
Trashy movie. We turned it off during a rape joke. I’m far from being easily embarrassed but drew the line. Hey if. Your hanging with your buddies there may be or may not be alcohol involved. enjoy.....without children in the room 18+. Have fun.

The best movie yet as far as Madea comedy, but I like the more serious ones, too! Madea and Joe take in a white family to provide them a safe haven from the mafia. Madea has to use her charm on the obnoxious ungrateful teen daughter but she doesn't get physical with this brat, she uses her smarts. Warning! Eat before you watch this movie because when Madea makes breakfast your mouth will be watering! Tyler Perry is a genius at using a lovable coarse strong woman to teach others that God is in charge, and to never give up, be strong. Thank God for Mr. Perry and thank Mr. Perry for using his God given talent! The outtakes at the end of the movie are hilarious so don't quit watching!
This movie introduced me to Madea, and I am now a fan! More importantly, the story has depth and character. The family reunion brought me to tears more than once as Cecily Tyson talks to the family with the strength of the years. Maya Angelou brings her special way of sharing to me every time I watch it. Thank you Tyler Perry!

Tyler Perry is very interesting to me. I don't hate him or anything, but seems like every one of his movies, including Madea has to have random sub-plot drama. This one is probably one of my favorites because abusive relationships intrigue me, and Perry has captured it very well. Lisa is engaged to the very abusive and controlling Carlos, while her half sister Vanessa is dating a guy who wants to love her but she keeps pushing him away because of her traumatic childhood. Meanwhile, Madea is getting ready for her big family reunion and must deal with a troubled disrespectful teen named Nikki. If you love the Madea character, I'm sure you'll enjoy MADEA'S FAMILY REUNION!!!
Though obviously Madea is funny, the Madea movies are about family values, truthfulness and courage. Madea is the glue that holds this family together and helps them remember their roots. Don't mess with Madea!
This is by far my favorite Tyler Perry movie. The acting is good, the characters are believable (well, apart from Boris Kodjoe- I mean please- who would turn that down!)and the story-lines are great. I especially enjoy the way the mother-daughter interractions between the main characters play out in the film. I watch this when I need something funny but at the same time deep and uplifting.This movie covers quite a lot and at the center of it is Madea who is funny as hell. After awhile you forget it's Tyler Perry in drag- the character is so good. It takes on a whole life of its own-funny and outrageous, yet real and down to earth somehow- with a lot of wisdom to offer. Some serious themes are touched upon and at the heart of it is a great moral (for everyone). The only problem with this movie is that I want to reach into the television screen and knock Blair Underwood's character out. LOL. Oh, and Lyn Whitfield's too. No, but seriously-Tyler Perry always aims to please and he definately delivers here.

If you are ready for a laugh out loud moment, then you will appreciate the show. Like all Tyler Perry films, there is an underlying message of God, Faith and Family. For those not familiar with the American culture, you might not be familiar with some of the jokes. However, there is always a strong, positive or storyline. Enjoy and laugh your head off.
I have watched a number of Tyler Perry films and this is one of the best ones. Madea had me rolling when she cussed off the girl at the drive through at the beginning of the film and again at the funeral near the end.
Loving your work Tyler and good for kids and adults of today to see how they should behave as opposed to how some of them do.
Anyone who hasn't seen this film, I beg you watch this ASAP too funny to miss.
