Tyler Perry’s latest is another shrill morality piece—yet this garbage keeps hauling in the cash. Madea’s niece Shirley (an appallingly bad Loretta Devine) has cancer, so Madea must gather the family together to break the news. That family consists of Isaiah Mustafa (the Old Spice guy), Bow Wow (formerly Lil’ Bow Wow), Cassi Davis and others who stink up the place with severe overacting. The movie’s most-amusing moments come when Perry’s Madea terrorizes a fast-food joint or slaps some kids around. When Perry sets his sights on actual drama and emotional matters, he just sucks. This stuff isn’t good on any level and embarrasses all who are involved. Perry puts a bunch of gospel music and Jesus talk in his movies, but they’re still nothing more than horse shit.
