ClearPlay In Action!Most of the work ClearPlay does in Madea has to do with language: scattered profanity, bawdy humor, and the occasional anatomical reference. Still, it may not be appropriate for all family members due to the intense family discord, drug allusions, and general disrespect.
Will I be happy I sat down with Madea’s Family?…Perry bounces quickly between humor and tragedy after introducing us to some infuriatingly unlikable characters. The schizophrenic nature of the story makes Madea an uncomfortable viewing experience. Though there are many nice individual moments in the film, you may feel unduly manipulated to laugh one moment and cry the next, undermining the movie’s overall effect. If you’re a big Perry fan, go for it. Otherwise, tread with caution.
