Time Out says

1 out of 5 stars

Last year's adaptation of Ntozake Shange's For Colored Girls suggested there might be life beyond Madea for Tyler Perry. Hold your hallelujers---he's back in the dress. Perry's ass-whupping grandmother, who's like Big Momma crossed with Dr. Phil, has her work cut out for her as the newest branch of the family tree is rotten with bad apples: back-talking kids, wimpy husbands and an ex--drug dealer (Moss) saddled with not one but two disrespectful, money-grubbing ladies. Epitomizing the shrill franchise's schizophrenic tonal shifts, Madea metes out Christian life lessons with one hand---and righteously bitch-slaps with the other.
