Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas
Though sorely tempted to just write "Skip" and move on with our lives, duty calls and I can’t simply ignore the franchise that is Madea. And along with her, the unstoppable force of crappy movies that is Tyler Perry. Take a look at these numbers, all movies with Madea involved:

Diary of a Mad Black Woman (16%)

Madea’s Family Reunion (25%)

Meet the Browns(32%)

Madea Goes to Jail (30%)

I Can Do Bad All by Myself (63%)

Madea’s Big Happy Family (38%)

Madea’s Witness Protection (21%)

For those keeping score at home, that’s an average of 32%. Now, if you’re interested in numbers, it’s also worth noting that these movies have grossed somewhere in the vicinity of $415 million at the box office. So it would appear that Madea earns about $13 million for every percentage point of Tomatometer success. I doubt many franchises have a better ratio. There are some for sure (without looking, I’d venture Grown Ups and Resident Evil have it beat), but man that’s a lot of Benjamins for a subpar product.

Yet the Perry train continues chugging along, laying down crappy track after crappy track. It’s amazing really. In this latest, Madea heads out to the sticks for a redneck Christmas, because, well I’m not sure exactly why really, but it looks awful. A number of different stereotypes are going gangbusters in the trailer, each of them less funny than the one before. Business as usual I suppose. But around these parts, when it comes to predicting scores, we like track record. It makes the predictions easy. So for that, I’d like to thank Madea. The Rotten Watch for Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas is 22%
