All Critics (59) | Top Critics (21)

Nothing that happens seems the least bit believable, and everything is brash and loud. All that's missing is the laugh track.

Perry's vaudevillian shamelessness and indifference to committee-approved taste are energizing and frequently jaw-dropping.

Tyler Perry's heart is in the right place, but he still has a tin ear.

At times it feels as if Perry made three separate films, dumped them in a blender and hit the puree button.

Let's not sell Tyler Perry short. As the vinegar-witted Madea, he's a drag performer of testy charm, but in his overlit patchwork way he's also making the most primal women's pictures since Joan Crawford flexed her shoulder pads.

Though Perry's films are hard to defend on aesthetic grounds -- the crazy shifts in tone from operatic melodrama to broad comedy could cause seizures -- it's equally hard to begrudge the underserved audiences who embrace them so passionately.

Audience Reviews for Madea's Family Reunion

Just another Tyler Perry movie. The plot is half comedy, and half drama, and although the movie is hilarious, the dramatic moments are unbearable. The cast is also bad, although I think Tyler Perry is a funny and good actor, the rest of the cast was bad and I did not enjoy them. I'm a huge fan of the character of Madea, but I wish they made a Madea movie that is all comedy, instead of this crappy comedy/drama films that have become really boring.
