Movie Review – A Madea Family Funeral – A Fine Farewell to the Franchise

Movie Review - A Madea Family FuneralFittingly enough, A Madea Family Funeral is Tyler Perry’s last performance as this iconic, foul-mouthed, insanely funny character. I went into the theater with great anticipation of a stellar finale. Halfway into the movie, I’m wondering when he’ll pull out all the stops and give me some more funny stuff to laugh over. There were a few moments that met my expectations, but overall it didn’t deliver.

I was impressed at the amount of controversial topics he addressed. He showed us the fear the public has over police brutality, and let me add that was probably one of the funniest scenes. However, looking back at it, it was painfully true. Bad things are happening in America, and Perry wasn’t afraid to bring some of them up.

I’m going to miss Madea. She always said the things that my brain thinks but my mouth won’t allow out. I’m sad that I won’t be seeing her anymore, because inside me lives a little bit of Madea. She was a hero to all the folks out there too quiet to speak up for themselves. Long live Madea!!

In summary, yes, it was funny. No, it wasn’t as funny as I was expecting. The problem was, Tyler had set the bar so very high with his other movies. I’m still happy I saw it, but there was room for more shenanigans from our mischievous and brutal Madea.

  1. I agree, this movie was extremely lacking. Big disappointment. I was very unhappy with the time that was taken to illustrate the racial unfairness of a police traffic stop. While we all agree and are aware these things happen it was not appropriate for a comedy. It was not the platform for political statements.
    All races have enjoyed Mr. Perry’s movies. Disregard for a diverse audience was disappointing.
