Ever since Grandma Madea (Tyler Perry) took a chainsaw to her granddaughter’s sofa to claim the woman’s half of her home from her cheating husband, filmgoers have been in love with the comedy and drama of Tyler Perry.
In Madea’s Big Happy Family, Madea’s niece receives bad news from her doctor. She wants to break it to her family over dinner, but as can happen with relations, many are feuding, so it is up to Madea to bring them all together.
“Comedy is all around me,” Perry says of his work. “Even in some of my greatest sadness, I find something to be joyful about. That’s why my films are the way they are. The audience wants to laugh. They want to have a little drama or melodrama. So I just love going all the way in both directions. And with Madea I can do that.”
“Madea’s Big Happy Family” is now showing on Video On Demand. Check your cable system for availability.
