TYLER PERRY’S A MADEA HOMECOMING

What You Need To Know:

In TYLER PERRY’S A MADEA HOMECOMING on Netflix, Madea’s great grandson, Tim, is graduating from college, and the whole family comes to the house to celebrate. Tim and his best friend, Davi, are headed to Madea’s house. Tim tells Davi he has a secret to reveal to the family. Knowing that the family is loud, opinionated and sometimes belligerent, Tim is nervous what might happen when he reveals the secret. Unexpectedly, Davi’s family shows up, including Aunt Agnes Brown. Madea must learn to get along with Aunt Agnes, who’s an opinionated Irish person who’s misunderstood as much as Madea.

Like many of the recent Madea movies, A MADEA HOMECOMING contains extremely silly humor, and the characters are goofy. The movie has some positive pro-family themes, but it’s marred by more than 200 obscenities and many lewd references and jokes about sex. Also, A MADEA HOMECOMING has a strong Romantic worldview where all the characters follow their hearts rather than God or biblical truth. For example, the grandson comes out to his family as homosexual, and other characters enjoy using marijuana, including eating pot-laced sweets.

More Detail:

In TYLER PERRY’S A MADEA HOMECOMING, which is streaming on Netflix, Tyler Perry once again makes a family comedy about learning to love each other in the midst of differences. TYLER PERRY’S A MADEA HOMECOMING has some light positive pro-family themes, but it’s marred by more than 200 obscenities, many crude, often comical, references to sex, a politically correct homosexual subplot, marijuana use, and other dysfunctional behavior.

Madea’s great grandson, Tim, is graduating from college, and the whole family comes to her house to celebrate. Tim and his best friend, Davi, are headed to Madea’s house, and Tim tells Davi he has a secret to reveal to the family. Knowing that the family is loud, opinionated and belligerent, Tim is nervous what might happen when he reveals the secret.

The whole family starts arriving at the house, and Madea is a bit overwhelmed by the amount of people there. Unexpectedly, Davi’s family also shows up, including Aunt Agnes Brown. Now, Madea must learn to get along with Aunt Agnes, who’s an opinionated Irish person who is misunderstood almost as much as Madea is misunderstood.

That isn’t the only surprise, as Tim’s father shows up to Madea’s house as well. Tim’s mother, Laura, isn’t happy about that because Tim’s father took almost everything in their divorce.

Secrets are revealed and the family fights, but will they be able to come together again and love each other in the midst of their differences?

TYLER PERRY’S A MADEA HOMECOMING follows the same comedy and patterns as the other Madea movies. The movie contains extremely silly humor, and the characters are goofy. The movie pushes the edge, though, as the main characters are men dressed as women, Tyler Perry playing Madea and Brendan O’Carroll playing Agnes Brown.

TYLER PERRY’S A MADEA HOMECOMING has some positive pro-family themes, but it’s marred by more than 200 obscenities and many lewd references and jokes about sex. Also, A MADEA HOMECOMING has a strong Romantic worldview where all the characters follow their hearts rather than God or biblical truth. For example, the grandson comes out to his family as homosexual, and other characters enjoy using marijuana, including eating pot-laced sweets. Media-wise families will find TYLER PERRY’S A MADEA HOMECOMING to be unacceptable and even abhorrent.
