I loved this film, just as I love everything Tyler Perry has done.
I agree with the first reviewer, there weren't many positive women in this film and the men did seem to be pretty lame.
However, it's a comedy, and when Madea comes on it's laughter all the way for me. I own all of Mr. Perry's movies and plays and will buy this one too.
It doesn't bother me to see the negative side of family, I have a family with alot of drama and negative and violent things happened to at least one of us. It's reality for some people. I think that's what Tyler Perry draws on. With God, we can hold on to the hope and promise of something better. That's why I buy his movies and plays, he is not shy about sharing God's word, even if at it's misquoted by Madea.

Shirley (Loretta Devine) has been fighting cancer for about seven years, but it hasn't gotten her down. She's thanking God for the days she's had and accepting what is to come. All she wants more than anything is to sit down at a nice dinner with her adult children so they will all be together when she tells them the sad news.

Madea's Big Happy Family sends much needed messages to husbands and wives, battling siblings, bad behind children, teenage single parents... any family dealing with sensitive issues, disrespecting each other and keeping secrets. There were `zany' parts in this movie - I can deal with zany for a little bit, but it gets on my nerves after a while - but there were also quite a few touching and eye-opening moments. The first time I saw this movie was in the theater. The Opening Credits shows like an animated mini-movie, so I was entertained even before the movie began. My main thought after the movie was that families really need to stop wasting time and taking each other for granted. A sequel would be nice, because I would like to know what happens with Kimberly's (Shannon Kane) situation.

Favorite Character: Aunt Bam (Cassi Davis) - she's honest, bold and witty.
Favorite Line: You don't feel bad for me. You feel bad for somebody who don't know Jesus.
Favorite Scenes: Something's Got to Give/Look in the Mirror

I appreciate the fact that Mr. Perry brings humor into people's lives. I've always seen the ability to make others laugh as one of the most precious gifts a person could have. This world needs more happiness; I know I could use a good laugh daily. Mr. Perry has created a character or two who can be a little over the top - zany - but as a whole I enjoy his work. Laughter is only one thing his films bring to my life.

Tyler Perry produces entertaining morality plays. Why do people get upset that it is NOT high art? Other movies are fluff and fun and don't have a decent message. At least Mr. Perry gives us a nice message with the silliness.

This movie is based on a play that was written shortly after Mr. Perry's mother has passed. From bereavement, he created a play and movie that offers hope to many families that have gone through tragedy and pulled through into a stronger one. This is easier said than done: however, Mr. Perry's life is testament that it can and is possible. I look forward to many more of his films. God bless.

I watched this at the suggestion of someone else. I had no idea who Tyler Perry was and hadn't seen any Madea material before. I was surprised that it was a play. I wasn't expecting that and wasn't looking forward to it actually. I also didn't like the negative and stereotypical portrayals of all the characters at first. I am glad I gave it a chance. Two thirds of the way through, the light clicked on and I started to love it. It's preachy, but it's done with love. The music totally supports the message and makes it heartfelt. Everybody needs a Madea in the family to set them straight. Love the message. Love the movie/play. I am a new fan.

This was a great movie and as with all of Mr. Perry's movies it had message to offer. The movie at the beginning has somewhat of a corny beginning....but stay with it. The movie gets better and you can't help laughing even though it does have a sad moment.

We like Tyler Perry's Madea movies. My children not too crazy about the Play's, but I do because he tends to get off the script and say what is on his mind about how things are and just appears to a down to earth kind of guy.

As much as I've loved the character "Madea" over the years, she's a little more over-the-top (more silly) with every successive film, especially this one. Here the silliness begins as Madea drives her car into a fast food restaurant that doesn't serve her favorite breakfast combo meal after a certain time in the morning. Although this film wouldn't have been as funny without Madea, I do think that the character could've been toned down a bit. The film stars some fresh faces and familiar ones--the rapper Bow-wow (who's performance is surprisingly great) and the regularly underrated veteran actress Loretta Devine. Nevertheless, I loved the lessons Tyler Perry was trying to impart...those many life lessons we grow up with but oftentimes lay to the wayside when it comes to our own children. This is a good family film where the take-away is to remember to care for and about each other, and that we're only as sick as our secrets.
