Madea is back and as usual – comedic chaos and a christian based lesson follows.  This time the plot centers around Madea’s dying niece, Shirley (Loretta Devine) and the stressful lives of her children.  Like many of Tyler Perry’s previous titles, the movie loosely follows the central theme of the play but the film is different enough to warrant selling separate DVDs for both.

Of course you can’t help but laugh at Madea’s antics, but you’ve seen them all before.  There isn’t really anything new in this film, but it is still a decent ride.  Singer Teyana Taylor has a few memorable scenes in the film that could go a long way to launch her acting career.

Overall, like all other Madea films, this one has funny moments, an obvious message, and some memorable one liners.  This recipe has served Tyler Perry very well and fans love it.  If you love Madea, Big Happy Family will not disappoint.  Otherwise, you may want to wait for the matinee for this film.

Madea, everyone’s favorite wise-cracking, take-no-prisoners grandma, jumps into action when her niece, Shirley, receives distressing news about her health. All Shirley wants is to gather her three adult children around her and share the news as a family. But Tammy, Kimberly and Byron are too distracted by their own problems: Tammy can’t manage her unruly children or her broken marriage; Kimberly is gripped with anger and takes it out on herhusband; and Byron, after spending two years in jail, is under pressure to deal drugs again. It’s up to Madea, with the help of the equally rambunctious Aunt Bam, to gather the clan together and make things right the only way she knows how: with a lot of tough love, laughter…and the revelation of a long-buried family secret.
Tyler Perry – screenwriter, director and two-time star (as Madea and her brother, Joe) – returns with another tender and hilarious look at love and family ties with MADEA’S BIG HAPPY FAMILY, also starring Shad “Bow Wow” Moss, Loretta Devine, Cassi Davis, Lauren London, David Mann, Tamela Brown Mann, Isaiah Mustafa, Rodney Perry, Shannon Kane, Natalie Desselle Reid and Teyana Taylor.
