In the middle of “Tyler Perry’s A Madea Homecoming,” there’s a gag that showcases the humor of Perry’s Madea multimedia franchise. Perry pauses the plot for a black and white flashback, where his hot-tempered, unfiltered head model tells the story of how she kicked off the Civil Rights movement by threatening the man’s mistress. her own, Rosa Parks, who then took over the reserve on a Montgomery bus. To prove it, Madea released a photo she took in the moment on her smartphone. “My phone,” she said, “because they didn’t have an iPhone back then—before me it was A.” It’s irreparable, disrespectful nonsense – but it would be amusing, so why not? Perry, who announced that he will remove his signature character after 2019 “A Madea Family Funeral,” seems to have revived Madea, in the same spirit: simply because he can.
This part shows Madea throwing her great-grandson’s (Brandon Black) college graduation party. This event was really an excuse for dozens of family members to cut each other; complain when Mr. Brown (David Mann) sets himself on fire. It also gives Madea an audience in which she can voice her conflicting feelings about the Black Lives Matter movement: She’s upset when her niece Ellie (Candace Maxwell) becomes a cop, threatens Madea’s weed, but she also disagrees with the idea that protesters could burn down her corner liquor store.
The scripts have such plot twists that they make soap operas look cowardly. Perry even worked on a visit from his costumed counterpart, Irish comic actor Brendan O’Carroll, who played Agnes Brown on the Irish sitcom “Mrs. Brown’s Boys. As the movie speeds up to high definition, you might miss a beautiful speech about Perry’s love – “Stop building them walls and build you some fences” – which doesn’t. can counterbalance half a dozen hopelessly ridiculous stories. He appeared to be in a hurry to get to the end of the credits, where he changed into short shorts and a blonde wig to light up the 2019 Beyoncé concert movie “Back home.” Is there a reason this happens? Maybe just because he can.
