Synopsis:
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.

Night at the Oscars

Oscars Night!

Well, it’s that time of year again – the Oscars. As Hollywood’s highest honor, the stars will be out tonight for what is usually the world’s worst kept secrets. In most cases, we already know who is going to win before the golden statues are passed out. Our prediction is that the biggest possible upset may come in the Best Picture category. We believe this will go to the King’s Speech but the Social Network may have a slim shot at pulling the upset. Other than that, expect Natalie Portman, Colin Firth, Christian Bale, and a few lucky others to add Oscar winner to their moniker.

We are interested to see how Anne Hathaway and James Franco will fair as hosts for the award show.  We were pleasantly surprised to see that they seemed to work well together in the commercials for the upcoming broadcast and even have a little bit of chemistry.
