Entertaining, this movie hits the spot!
So, usually I avoid these movies like the black plague, but from the poster and the trailer, something told me this was going to be worth the ticket price, and I was right.
A Madea Halloween is hilarious in it’s stupidity, and you can’t help but to laugh at it. Madea’s nephew (both played by writer director and producer Tyler Perry) ask her to watch his daughter, Tiffany, in order to keep her from leaving the house to go to a Halloween frat party, but Tiffany like a rebellious teenage girl sneaks out of the house anyway. Bad for her, cause Madea is definitely not the family member a teenage girl wants tracking her down.
Tyler Perry tends to make movies that speak to a certain movie watcher, and I fully admit, with A Madea Halloween, I was totally listening to everything he had to say. It was like a good stand up comedian telling a joke that makes you laugh out loud because it’s so true. Believe you me, I’m no hater, but I’m the not the biggest fan of Tyler Perry either, but he got me with this one. I just could not help but to relate and it made me just push out my laughter uncontrollably at moments.
A Medea Halloween is not going to win any awards and it’s not even trying. It’s just trying to be stupid, and it succeeds greatly creating a hilarious movie that reminds me of a Holiday special you would see on TV, that’s perfect for this time of season, with just the right style of camp that makes it in the so bad it’s good category, perfect for a comedy with horror elements.
It’s a whole lot of fun.
