This year, we decided to make it a Madea Halloween by watching (take a deep breath) Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween, which is in and of itself a mouthful.
In fact, a lot about this movie is a mouthful. The plot — don’t get Tyler (not-Perry) started on it — takes minutes to wade through, and Madea, well, isn’t she always just a mouthful anyway?
That is also to mention our feelings on the movie. A Madea Halloween makes us feel complicated. It’s not a good movie. That, we can say with almost objective certainty.
Is it funny? You bet your weed prescription on it. Madea herself is a fleshed-out character (and not just for sheer size of her). Even though the film is completely and utterly broad in its characterizations of people, events, and just about everything, she herself — or Tyler Perry as her — commands the screen.
Otherwise, we spend our time trying to suss out exactly whether or not Tyler Perry was playing to his audience with his portrayal of the frat party, or if he doesn’t actually know what one looks like in 2016.
