A Madea Christmas isn't your typical type of comedy, although it is light hearted but sometimes rude, Madea's deep but weird sweetness is to surely please the watchers along with the laughs.

This is the best Tyler Perry movie thus far very funny. It had us laughing all the way through. My wife and I both enjoyed it. The whole auditorium was filled with laughter.

First, he has helped people redirect their behaviors that cause dysfunction. He has raised the issue of being aware of irrational actions. No, he does not use drugs, or women in derogatory ways. He is a true artist: In the Modern Era, Post Modern, Post Post Modern Era and if you choose the Populist era as well. Merry Christmas. Expand

It also happens to suffer from feeling and looking way too much like a made for TV Hallmark original movie. Yet, when it comes down to it there's enough humor, heart, and that Christmas warmth to make it worth watching. Provided you've enjoyed other Madea films.

One of the things I particularly liked about this one is that the drama side of the plot isn't too serious. Other Tyler Perry films, including the Madea ones, can sometimes get too serious and dark in this department. Quite frankly the problem with that is that Tyler Perry just hasn't been very good at handling that sort of thing. His movies sometimes overindulge in depictions human cruelty. They all end on a better, more happy note for the characters, but the dark drama still clashes awkwardly with Madea's brand of humor. Thankfully this Christmas flick keeps things pretty light.

The family values are in place and it even delivers a nice little message about the evils of racism. It's sweet in that oh so cheesy Hallmark way. If you know Madea then you know what to expect from the humor. Occasionally Perry pushes the envelope with humor just a touch more vulgar than I personally was expecting with Larry the Cable Guy, but it's still funny. Provided you found other Madea movies funny that is.

That's pretty much the best way to sum up a review for this movie. Simply ask yourself, "Did I like other Madea movies?" If the answer is yes, you should very well like this one. If not, then this won't be the one to win you over. However if you've never watched a Madea movie before, what you need to know is that you're walking into something that feels like a TV movie. One that is a funny and pretty warm option for Christmas. It won't blow you away, and there's a pretty good chance it might not click with you, but if it does you'll be left with a solid hour and 40 minutes of laughs.

"Madea" is actually the funniest female character I have ever seen on the silver screen. And in "A Madea Christmas", she keeps on cracking jokes, but in a soulful human way, that just makes the movie, albeit far from flawless, entertaining"Madea" is actually the funniest female character I have ever seen on the silver screen.
