A Madea Family Funeral
Madea Family Funeral
Madea Family Funeral is an American based comedy film that tells a story of a joyous family reunion in small-town, Georgia, which turns into an unexpected nightmare. Madea Family Funeral is written and directed by Tyler Perry. Instead of a fun and exciting wedding anniversary, Mabel Madea (Tyler Perry ) and her Family soon found themselves in an elaborate funeral. They evidently did not bargain for this.
The movie opens with the children of Vianne (Jen Harper) and Anthony who were planning their surprise 40th wedding anniversary at their home. Madea and her gang; Joe, Brian, Aulnt Bam, and Hattie travel to backwoods Georgia for the wedding anniversary party. They had to deal with a maniac and rude police officer on their way. They arrived at their hotel where they caught Anthony (Derek Morgan ) having an affair with Renee (Quin Walters), Vianne’s best friend. Anthony’s son A.J was also "shacking up" (as Madea would put it) in the next room with his brother, Jesse’s, fiance Gia.
The incidence results in Anthony's heart attack which finally led to his untimely death. Other members of the family do not know the cause of Anthony's death, except for Madea and her group or rather gang, A.J (Courtney Burrell ) and Renee. Gia, Renee and A.J. tried keeping their secrets hidden and silent. However, A.J blames Renee for his father’s bitter death and affair. As a result, they kept blackmailing each other.
Everyone became suspicious of Vianne when she insisted on Madea planning Anthony's burial in two days. At the Funeral, Madea, Bam and Hattie found out that Anthony's casket wouldn't close due to his erection. Also, they noticed that he died with a smile on his face. In no time, a lot of Anthony's past mistresses shows up. This made Vianne obviously upset. The Funeral service lasted for hours until Anthony's casket flew open. This was again, due to his erection.
The secret sexual scandal worms its way to a catastrophic exposure as A.J. got excessively drunk at the repass and ended up revealing Anthony's affair with Renee. In return, Renee exposes A.J.’s affair with Gia. As a result, A.J's wife Carol (KJ Smith) finally decided it’s time to leave him. The irony is that Madea and her cronies have been stylishly exposing the secret at every slight opportunity they get. But no one cares to unravel their jokes considering their dotty eccentric nature.
The whole confession left a huge fight between A.J. and Jesse. It was then that Vianne in warm tears reveal how Anthony had been cheating on her for years. She explains that she only stayed with him to protect her family. However, she now realizes it’s time to live for herself. Curtains drew close with Vianne happily wishing the Madea family luck as she leaves for Las Vegas with Roy ( Mike Tyson ).
The film, Madea Family Funeral has a way of lighting up your environment and even leaving you with positive energy for the rest of the day. If you must crack up those cheekbones, then Madea Family Funeral is a must look out for.
