Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas : Movie Review

The eighth film featuring the most prolific, cantankerous, rule-breakin', cheek-slappin', wisdom-spoutin' old lady from Atlanta, "A Madea Christmas" is a study in racial and socioeconomic tolerance as seemingly written by a feral preschooler newly adapting to the outside world. The caricatures run rampant, the handling of the plot is quaintly insulting, and it all culminates in so many abruptly positive character reversals that its would-be goodheartedness instead comes off as ignorantly disingenuous. Tyler Perry (2012's "Madea's Witness Protection") is both the culprit and the one source of constant light in a big-screen comedy so sloppily stitched together it feels like his directorial debut.
