Author Charing Ball just said the other day that it would probably be a good idea if Tyler Perry hung up his Madea costume for good. But of course, seeing as much money as these movies make, you might be able to understand why Perry is having a ‘can’t stop won’t stop’ mentality. The trailer for his upcoming Madea movie, “A Madea Christmas,” has just been released and it actually had us chuckling.
If you need a reminder, the plot goes like this:
“Madea gets coaxed into helping a friend pay her daughter a surprise visit in the country for Christmas, but the biggest surprise is what they’ll find when they arrive. As the small, rural town prepares for its annual Christmas Carnival, new secrets are revealed and old relationships are tested while Madea dishes her own brand of Christmas Spirit to all.”
So basically, Madea goes with her friend Eileen (Anna Maria Horsford) and they find out that the woman’s daughter (Tika Sumpter) is dating a white man (Eric Lively), living on a farm, and doing the whole rural thing. Madea of course struggles to get along with the white fella’s family (who is a little bit backwards/redneck-ish), and comedy ensues.
Check out the trailer for yourself and let us know what you think. A Madea Christmas comes out on December 13, just in time for the holidays. Will you go see it?
