Storyline Heading
Madea, everyone’s favorite wise-cracking, take-no-prisoners grandma, jumps into action when her niece, Shirley, receives distressing news about her health. All Shirley wants is to gather her three adult children around her and share the news as a family. But Tammy, Kimberly and Byron are too distracted by their own problems: Tammy can’t manage her unruly children or her broken marriage; Kimberly is gripped with anger and takes it out on her husband; and Byron, after spending two years in jail, is under pressure to deal drugs again. It’s up to Madea, with the help of the equally rambunctious Aunt Bam, to gather the clan together and make things right the only way she knows how: with a lot of tough love, laughter…and the revelation of a long-buried family secret.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Drama - As with the other Madea films, this is a broad comedy with some elements of serious drama aimed primarily at the urban, faith-based audience. Fans of the character and the work of writer/director/star Tyler Perry should be pleased though language and drug humor may be of concern to his older adult fans. Drug references and language make this inappropriate for younger children.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 47 moviegoers:
TEENS:Almost all loved "Madea's Big Happy Family." Only one rated it as low as "Average." Most gave it their highest rating so this is a movie you don't want to miss.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Both the males and females loved this movie. There aren't a lot of reviews but when they all rate it very high you know it's a great movie.
ADULTS:Apparently the humor in this movie is geared more for the younger crowd because both the male and female reviews are very mixed. Still, approximately half, or better, truly enjoyed "Madea's Big Happy Family." Quite a few of the remaining reviews are "Good," which indicates an average movie (somewhat low but not terrible). A small percentage rated it below average and even poor.
