Tyler Perry’s A Madea Homecoming
Madea’s back hallelujer. And she’s not putting up with any nonsense as family drama erupts at her great-grandson’s college graduation celebration.
The comedy is out the window…
The 2022 addition to the franchise takes the comedy aspect and parks it in the background, letting the stage be set for something more of a drama and a storyline about acceptance and daring to be difference, as well as being able to forgive and forget. I had initially expected some comedy, so “A Madea Homecoming” was sort of a swing and a miss.
The storyline told in “A Madea Homecoming” was adequate enough, but since I was expecting to be entertained with laughs and jokes, then sitting through a family drama was somewhat of a bitter slice of lemon to be served.
The acting performances in “A Madea Homecoming” were adequate, but the Madea character is sort of having overstayed her welcome on the screen, with each movie becoming less and less enjoyable.
All in all, then “A Madea Homecoming” was watchable for a single viewing, and that was about it. While I managed to sit through the entire movie, this is by no means a movie that I will ever return to watch a second time.
My rating of “A Madea Homecoming” lands on a less than mediocre four out of ten stars.
I enjoyed it.
I do know Mrs Brown however, and the combination was somewhat surreal. What was going on with that makeup, those cheeks were well rouged up.
It’s almost a pity that there’s so much bad language through it, as this could be enjoyed by kids, if I were twelve I’d have watched this over and over.
It is absurd, it’s insanely absurd, but it’s well meaning and well intentioned, with all that’s happening in the world right now, sometimes it’s just nice to escape into a world of silliness, and forget some of the world’s horrors.
Tyler Perry is wonderful, and I really did buy into the humour.
I’ve chosen not to read other reviews, and I can only just imagine some of that comments, but take it for what it is, light hearted fun, 7/10.
