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 her husband; 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.

This Rotten Week: Predicting Ted, Magic Mike, People Like Us And Madea Reviews
What could be more charming than a computer animated parrot? According to this weekend's box office, neither a mad black woman's latest family outing nor big wild cats. Nope, not even Twilight idol Robert Pattinson watering circus animals.

Interview: Isaiah Mustafa On Being More Than Old Spice's Man Your Man Could Smell Like
Hello Rotten Week-ite(s). Good to have you guy(s) back! And what a week it is, what with lions roaming the safari, elephants stampeding folks and Tyler Perry subjecting innocent people to his particular brand of crap. Coming off a strong prediction for Scream 4 we need to keep the good times rolling.

This Rotten Week: Predicting African Cats, Water For Elephants, Tyler Perry Reviews
I get the feeling that Tyler Perry’s Madea character may not have been all that different from Snooki in her younger days. So I guess it makes sense that in their latest promotional effort, Tyler Perry has gone ahead and turned Madea into the Jersey Shore’s second most famous person/criminal/character.

Tyler Perry's Madea Joins The Cast Of Jersey Shore
Tyler Perry is, of course, going back to the Madea well for his next movie. To promote it, for some inexplicable reason, Madea’s Big Happy Family has taken to producing parody posters in which Madea parodies other movies. The first two were sort of insulting, with Madea taking a big dump all over Black Swan and The Godfather. I have no idea what either of those movies has to do with a Madea movie, other than as a desperate ploy to get attention, but at least this latest Madea parody poster sort of makes sense.
So Perry fired Mustafa from For Colored Girls, but only so he could give the actor the lead role in Madea's Big Happy Family, the latest in his franchise starring the sassy grandmother played by Perry in drag
