Movie Review: US

Movie Review: US

Review: A Madea Family Funeral

Review: A Madea Family Funeral

By Kevin Fahey When Tyler Perry announced that his 11th Madea film would be his last, I mourned. Not because of the film’s funeral, but because there would be no more Madea, that wisecracking, brutally honest, sarcastic matriarch of her wayward crazy family.
