    Funny, not funny?

    Might go see it and want to see what someone that's seen it thinks before I waste my money.

    Thanks in advance for any info.

    The movie.

    I'll just say it, the Madea goes to Jail play is better than the movie

    I don't know aboutt he quality, but I'm going out on a limb and guessing there are at least 400 stereotypes perpetrated in it, for which he will beawarded another NAACP Image Award.

    --Movie is half comedy/half drama...but the comedic parts are hilarious. Stomach was hurting from laughing.

    i'm gonna guess if it begins with "Tyler Perry's..." then it's probably gonna be garbage like everything else i've seen of his

    Not worth it. Too predictable, not too funny.

    Just save your money.

    I never understood the hate for Tyler P. House of Payne is great IMO and Why Did I Get Married was real good. Some life lessons in there.

    Aside from the hypocrisy that lies in the fact he seeks to break stereotypes but merely perpetrates them more than any other black entertainer(and is rewarded for it), is the fact he can't write a decent story for crap. He's a hack. If a white guy wrote the same stuff, there would be protestsover about the material.

    I went to see it with my mom and she got mad because I wasn't laughing [​IMG]

    Mom - Why aren't you laughing?
    Me - I'll laugh when it gets funny.

    I'm not saying your wrong. But what stereotypes? Hack? And you didn't like "Why Did I Get Married?"?

    The movies that feature his Madea character mostly are filled with the stereotypes IMO. The other movies where he isn't in drag are decent. The Madeacharacter is a stereotype. It ain't nothing funny about being ignorant and ghetto. I find is sad a lot of people don't realize that they are payingthere money to go see a character that makes fun of them. I'll probably be forced to go see it by my gf tho, black women and older folks loves that !$#*.Hey, can't hate tho, black exploitation sells. Atleast his movies have happy endings.[​IMG]

    Most accurate rating in here.

    Y'all are frontin'. Movie is definitely worth some laughs.

    Me personally, I wasn't feeling the drama/romantic moments of the flick.

    But all of the Madea parts were funny as hell.

    Most importantly, the chick I went with was feeling it. Can't miss date movie.
