We gave it a B-

Personalities, classes, and races clash as Madea (Tyler Perry) and her niece Eileen (Amen‘s Anna Maria Horsford) travel to the Southern town of Buck Tussel to spend Christmas with Eileen’s daughter (Think Like a Man‘s Tika Sumpter), who has been hiding the fact that she married a white farmer (Eric Lively). Such secrecy doesn’t sit well with the volatile Madea, particularly when she meets the hubby’s unsophisticated parents (Kathy Najimy and Larry the Cable Guy). ”Madea is a real character in black families,” says Horsford. ”She tells the truth regardless of whose feelings get hurt.” Expect her to put the missile in mistletoe.
