Critic Reviews for Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (7)

If nothing else, and there really isn't much else, this feature provides a startling glimpse into the interiors of Perry's imagination.

October 23, 2017 | Rating: D | Full Review…

While its predecessor at least pleased his fans, writer-director-star Perry's latest offers few laughs and embarrassing post-production work.

October 20, 2017 | Full Review…

This movie finds Mr. Perry, never the most deft at the technical aspect of filmmaking, drastically off whatever his best game is.

October 20, 2017 | Full Review…

It's already a general rule that Madea movies are never all that funny whenever Madea isn't on screen, but even when she and Joe are at the center of the action, they're batting about .250 when it comes to punchlines.

October 20, 2017 | Full Review…

Like Madea, Perry's getting away with attempted murder.

October 20, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

In the end, the scariest thing about Boo 2! is the idea that A Madea Easter might be next.

Audience Reviews for Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween

½

I don't automatically hate Tyler Perry's alter ego/monstrous matriarch, Madea. I didn't even hate the first Boo film, but its sequel is exactly everything Perry's critics have accused his films of being. This is the movie everyone thinks the Madea films are. This feels like 90 minutes of vamping, where there clearly wasn't a script and Perry hoped each new scene would somehow stumble into hilarity. The premise could have worked, placing Madea in a Friday the 13th scenario, but they play it as a lesson to teach the youth about their fool ways. It's so listless and repeats itself often, stretching to fill out the running time of a feature film. It's poorly developed, poorly planned, and none of the characters matter as they sometimes change abruptly by the moment. There was clearly no plans to do a sequel for the first Madea Halloween movie, until it became the second highest-grossing film of his career. Everything about this movie smells of desperation. Everybody is just dancing around on screen, speaking in circuitous improv jags that go nowhere, and there's even an extended sequence of twerking from a famous dancer. This is a punishing movie that plays to Perry's worst instincts. Let the Boo franchise die. Nate's Grade: D

Remember when there was just one of these Halloween flicks featuring Madea from, you know, last year? Only this time, Tyler Perry manages to make one more comeback with a film so unbearable you can't even imagine why they would still continue this series. Let's hope one day, we'll find a way to end what must be bought to an end.
