I get so excited over anything Madea. Seriously, Madea Goes To Jail, Madea’s Christmas. Everything. Just give me my Aunt Madea. I was surprised that it took so long for them to get to Halloween. If we’re at the point where we’re getting a Star Wars film once a year, why can’t Tyler Perry do that with this Madea? Don’t say overkill- there are eight Policy Academy movies.
There are some big name Youtubers in this movie. Or so I’ve been told. I had no idea. It’s not a blink and you’ll miss them situation, the whole high school kids scenes was overdone and gimmicky. Beyond the cheesy acting it was so forced. I started thumb tapping waiting for them to get back to Madea and her gang of friends. At least they were believable, body suits and all.
The premise of the movie is Perry’s character paid to babysit to keep a teenage girl from going to a Halloween party. While staying in the house, ghoulish things start happening. You get the feeling you wondered into on the Scary Movie episodes. The thing is, it’s not just cornball scary, it’s funny Madea angry fight back scary. Cassi Davis who plays Aunt Bam and reactionary funny. Patrice Lovely (Hattie) gave fascial jestures that played well off Madea.
These three along with Perry playing multiple characters are the movie. The sprinkled in Youtubers are here to bring the internet kids, but don’t make too much of them. I just wish they were written in to be funny and less annoying.
Who’s going to see this movie? The Madea and Scary Movie fans. Throw in anyone that wants to laugh at your scared aunt for over an hour.
