Critic Reviews of "Madeas Big Happy Family"Chicago ReaderApril 29, 2011
Like most of Perry's movies, this one oscillates wildly and shamelessly between raunch and pathos, leaving plenty of room for the performers to work. The lively ensemble includes a scene-stealing Cassi Davis as pothead Aunt Bam.Time OutApril 27, 2011
Epitomizing the shrill franchise's schizophrenic tonal shifts, Madea metes out Christian life lessons with one hand -- and righteously bitch-slaps with the other.Toronto StarApril 27, 2011
The title is meant to be ironic. Too bad irony is in such short supply in Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family. Sadly, subtlety is also missing.TIME MagazineApril 25, 2011
If Perry gets on your wavelength, you can forgive him too. He's only the host at a home-cooked banquet of wild emotions.Boston GlobeApril 25, 2011
"Madea's Big Happy Family'' nonsensically knots the spiritual and the salacious, asking gossipy questions then giving pulpit answers so that the movie is wonderfully, woefully absurd.Los Angeles TimesApril 25, 2011
Perry possesses a superb ear for the themes and emotions that connect him to his core audience, and that's on display again here, though the unconverted might grumble that the movie's many riffs and rants feel recycled from previous offerings.TheFilmFile.comDecember 05, 2013
"Madea's Big Happy Family" is a facetious title; there's not a happy one in the bunch. Eventually, neither is the viewer.TheMovieReport.comApril 07, 2012
The odd thing about Tyler Perry is that just when you think he may be turning a corner and evolving, he goes into retrograde.Antagony & EcstasyFebruary 29, 2012
Perry's performance of Madea [feels] flatter and more strained than he ever has in the role.Austin ChronicleApril 29, 2011
Deathbed scenes and colonoscopy humor, Bible quotations and Maury Povich "Who Is the Real Baby Daddy" episodes: All cohabit with equal relevance in the world of Tyler Perry.Sacramento News & ReviewApril 29, 2011
... Tyler Perry goes to the Madea well once too often and comes up dry.Jam! MoviesApril 29, 2011
Comedy is comedy, and "terminal illness" is "terminal illness" and the two really shouldn't meet. What you end up with is a movie that's literally as funny as cancer.
