Tyler Perry has done it again. On Friday April 22nd his newest movie, Madea’s Big Happy Family, opened in theaters everywhere and I’m here to tell you that Tyler Perry has out done himself this time. Every time I think his movies can’t get any better he proves me wrong. And the ensemble cast is phenomenal.

Madea’s Big Happy Family is an emotional roller-coaster ride from the beginning to the end. Of course I started off laughing. I laughed so hard that my cheeks ached and tears were rolling down them. Mid way the movie I was crying so hard that tears were streaming down my face. Then 10 minutes later I was laughing again. So plan on bringing plenty of Kleenex tissues with you to the theater, you will definitely need them. And there are so many lessons to be learned in between the laughter and tears.

Without giving any of the plot away I will tell you this, “Pay attention to the family dinner scene.” The dinner scenes are fast becoming Tyler’s signature mark. When you see them sitting down to eat dinner together you just know something is about to happen. Secrets will be revealed.

I enjoyed every 105 minutes of this movie. It was a wonderful, uplifting movie that a family can watch together. I love the fact that it was released in time for Mother’s Day. Take your mom to see it; she will thank you for it. She may even cook you a nice big dinner afterward. Well, maybe you should cook dinner for mom instead. You wouldn’t want to upset Madea.

Side note: Don’t be in a hurry to leave the theater once the movie is over because you don’t want to miss the outtakes. Trust me; they are just as funny as the movie.
