“Boo! A Madea Halloween” Makes Audiences Want to Boo

Madea. It rhymes with “idea”, which is what this movie, “Boo! A Madea Halloween” was lacking.

I came home after the movie to find my mom showing our friends a different Madea movie. My only thought was, “Didn’t I just see this?”

After seeing some snippets of other Tyler Perry classics, I was very excited to laugh to death. Instead, I wanted to follow Madea’s order and “Get the hell out!”

Most of the phrases in the movie should be compared to cayenne pepper; a little bit goes a long way. There are only so many “Whoop her a**!”s a girl can hear before the joke gets as old as Madea herself. Honestly, I believe that the movie should be renamed from “Boo! A Madea Halloween” to “Tyler Perry’s Madea *insert new plot here*”.  

A lot of the characters seemed to have no place in the movie. It just seemed that they were random people for Madea to make fun of. It was also hard to understand the role of the characters since I wasn’t able to comprehend anyone’s name.

After recently learning about the controversy over censoring the “n-word” in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, the unceasing use of the word seemed somewhat inappropriate.

If you think you want to spend at least eleven dollars on this movie, I only have two words. Child, please.
