In reviews, 10 critics all said pretty much the same thing: it’s Tyler Perry’s worse written and directed movie ever. Critics had a zero percent approval for the flick.
But his best rated movie was 2009’s “I Can Do Bad All By Myself,” which got a 62 percent rating and happens to be the only Tyler Perry written and directed film with a positive rating.
Although he keeps pumping out Madea movies like hotcakes, fans can’t get enough. He’s released 13 films in seven years.
Fans approved the new movie at a 90 percent rate.
Speaking of which, how did it do at the box office?

Glad you asked. According to Shadow and Act, it did quite well actually … grossing $26.3 million on its opening weekend - the 3rd highest opening for a Madea movie, and the 4th highest opening for a Tyler Perry movie (he’s directed 12 movies).
And as is usual for Tyler Perry movies that have opened in this range, the film will likely end up with a box office tally of about $50+ million.
The film is listed with a budget of $20 million, so, not counting P&A costs, it’s already made back its production budget, and then some. So another win for not only Mr Perry but for Lionsgate as well.
What does this mean? Expect more Madea movies – especially those with multi-racial casts.
