Mad Black Woman Returns in Silly/Contrived Installment, Errs on the Side of Cliché Silliness Rather than Substantive Comedy .

Funny and entertaining.

what a waste of money and time.

The only sequence I found remotely entertaining involved Medea's brother Joe and the implication that he and the white CFO might be related.

I enjoyed it and thought it was amazing!

Every scene and every confrontation was predictable and totally contrived from the first.

The plot becomes very predictable when the clip from a prior movie of the same genre is shown.

While it provided countless opportunities to laugh, the dialog was so hastily delivered that it was hard to follow anything they said.

save your money.

I went to see Medea with one of my friends, when we arrived the theater was empty expect for couple people.

I didn't have time to watch any more of this movie, as I had something to watch that the DVR had recorded, but I assumed I had seen it somewhere and could tell I would have really enjoyed it.

The film is funny throughout with a smattering of predictable laughs.

The beginning of this movie started really slow, and although I only paid $5 to see it, I was a little concerned.

Being from Atlanta, it is exciting to see several of the local landmarks.

The lack of threatening situations not only limits the story, but instead gave the crew more time to show pointless scenes filled with Madea's unique pronunciations of various words.

We see every event that takes place with the characters: they go through airport security, they get on the plane, they fly to New York, they go to their hotel room, they drive to where Madea's supposed to get the money - it's just way too slow!

The movie starts out slow and beats a few jokes to death with excessive sarcasm and a convoluted concocted storyline.

I would have accepted the slower pace if it was leading up to something suspenseful.

The plot, obviously contrived to enable some means to put Madea into the "story", involves a middle-aged CFO of the charity/foundation part of a mob-backed corporation which has been running a ponzi scheme.

She spews out line after line of cliché tripe, most of which is so predictable and vulgar that it wasn't even remotely entertaining.

Don't waste your time....

The script was very predictable and repetitious.

But the sad thing about it is that it's also absolutely going nowhere with it.

In these people in the reviews are saying they walked out (which I don't believe they did, you never ACTUALLY see anyone do that) and that no one was laughing.

i do not feel like this one of Tyler Perrys best movies nor his funniest, but it was still enjoyable to watch.

It's just unbearable.

It's funny at times, but then dull other times.

If you're looking for a movie with an original and unpredictable storyline, then this is definitely not the movie you're looking for.

It was very boring and predictable.

It felt forced and contrived to me.

I was dragged to this film by a friend.

Of course there were the moments when characters used slang to try to be funny, but I had a big eye roll for that considering how predictable it is.

Good Clean, Fun Entertaining Light-hearted Cautionary Tale .
