Madea's Big Happy Family

Rated PG-13 106 minutes 2011

Another bizarre outing for Tyler Perry's foul-mouthed, two-fisted, 70-something drag matriarch, who solves various family problems with homey advice, threats of violence, and motor-mouthed profanity. Madea's sweet niece (Loretta Devine) assembles their clan for dinner so she can announce that she's dying of cancer, but the family members won't stop squabbling long enough for her to break the news. Like most of Perry's movies, this one oscillates wildly and shamelessly between raunch and pathos, leaving plenty of room for the performers to work. The lively ensemble includes a scene-stealing Cassi Davis as pothead Aunt Bam.
