Funny, but not for kids yes that mean 13-14 yr

All Tyler Perry movies are funny , but who ever be setting the ages for these movies need to get fired. Madea is more for adults or young adults not 14 and under. There’s always bad words, drugs…etc

The Madea series keeps getting worse

Tyler Perry trying to make money out of another Madea movie, but ends up making a mess of a movie.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (5 ):

The Madea films are all about the characters; they have their audience and the latest installment will be no different. But definitely don't come to Tyler Perry's A Madea Homecoming looking for much beyond the usual trash-talking and crass humor. The film takes place almost entirely in one setting -- Madea's house. There are some very funny moments, like confusion over an Irish character (a hilarious Brendan O'Carroll as Madea's White counterpart), whose localisms are misinterpreted: "knickers" sounds like the "N" word, and she uses unintentionally-charged terms like "cotton-picking" and "proud boy." The film conveys a couple of political messages about Black Lives Matter, accepting gay people, and supporting rather than defunding police. Madea's folksy life lessons once again communicate that love and family are more important than anything else.
