Madea is back again to bring a little wisdom to the world. This time the wisdom centers on racial tolerance and acceptance. In a small town in Alabama, live school teacher Lacey (Tika Sumpter) and her husband Conner (Eric Lively). The town is a farming community that is financially strapped, which causes the cancellation of their annual Christmas Jubilee. A miracle is needed.
Eileen (Anna Maria Horsford), talks to her daughter Lacey and discovers she will not be coming home for Christmas. This causes suspicion. Eileen talks Madea (Tyler Perry) into going with her to Alabama. Upon their arrival, Eileen is oblivious to the secret that her daughter is hiding but not Madea.
When Connor’s parents arrive the whole household is thrown into disarray. Respecting their son’s wishes, Buddy (Larry the Cable Guy) and his wife Kim (Kathy Najimy) play along. Until the cutting of a family tree forces Kim to tell Eileen what she thinks of her.
Meanwhile, Lacey helps the town through a sponsorship provided by an ex-boyfriend who works for a public relations firm. But when the town finds out who the sponsor is everything goes from bad to worse. Feathers are ruffled and the town turns against Lacey.
Filled with laughter, wisdom, and a touch of faith is what is to be expected of a Tyler Perry film. Comments have been made concerning the crude humor in the film, but this is a small town in the south. Political correctness is not the speech of the day.
Much like his previous films, Madea’s Big Happy Family and Madea Goes to Jail, Perry brings to light the truth about relationships. We all want to be accepted and loved for who we are no matter where we come from. He shows how sometimes we have to fight and laugh our way through to get to the truth where healing can take place. ‘Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas’ playing now at local theaters check for show times.
