Tyler Perry’s Boo 2, a Madea Halloween


It’s hard to believe that this is the tenth film where Tyler Perry puts on a dress and it’s also the second Halloween movie in the comedy, horror, Tyler Perry’s Boo 2, a Madea Halloween. This story begins with Tiffany (Diamond White) the spoiled brat from last year’s film turning eighteen years old the day before Halloween. Her mom Debrah (Taja V. Simpson) gives her a car for her birthday much to the dismay of her father Brian (Tyler Perry) who says she isn’t mature enough to have a car. With Halloween being the next night Tiffany – who hasn’t learned her lesson from the last Halloween party – wants to go to with the frat boys to the festivities at a lake where several kids were killed decades ago. Of course, she receives permission from her mother – who Brian divorced- and now he can’t stop her from going. In the meantime, four old folks her grandfather Joe (Tyler Perry), Aunt Bam (Cassi Davis), Hatti (Patrice Lovely) and her aunt Madea (Tyler Perry) decide to follow her up to the lake to protect her. While at the lake guys with gas masks, chain saws and axes show up to kill the teenagers and the oldsters must save the day or night. Like the other films Tyler Perry is the director and writer as well as playing three different roles. (That’s what I call keeping all the money in the bank.) The film feels rushed and thrown together and worst of all it’s not that funny. Like most Madea films, the old people sit around and argue with each other and these scenes seem to go on too long. Worst of all, Madea isn’t even in the story that much and we are stuck with Joe who sits around telling dirty jokes and crude stories. I know they are trying to make it a Halloween film, but it’s just not scary. The only thing scary is if they make a Boo 3 movie. By the way, watch as their mouths move as they really say curse words, but they are dubbed with less raunchy words. (No, I couldn’t see that, but my wife thought it was both funny and a little sad.) Tyler Perry said Lionsgate kept sending the film back to be edited down from an R rating. As bad as this movie was I was surprised how soon it was over which means it was somewhat entertaining. I’m giving this worst Madea film of all of them a C- rating.

This movie has been given a PG13 rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals. I rely more on a good storyline than special effects.
