The Least Funny Madea Comedy
Compared to the nine other movies about Mabel Simmons, "Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween!" qualifies as surprisingly lame and lightweight. I've laughed myself silly at all of Madea's madcap misadventures, but this sequel to last year's box office sensation "Boo! A Madea Halloween" is the least maniacal Madea movie in the franchise. Naturally, not only does the multi-talented Tyler Perry play Madea, but he also chews the scenery as Joe as well as the straight-laced Brian. The problem with "Boo 2" is Madea winds up blending into the background. Indeed, dope-smoking, promiscuous Joe with his profane lips lands all the best lines. Meanwhile, Madea ends up doing little if anything until this parody of "Friday the 13th" slasher movies enters its second half-hour. The best Madea movies are those where Madea looms front and center as well as loud and proud. She dominates everything and divides her enemies and relatives like Moses did the Red Sea. Unfortunately, writer & director Tyler Perry has hobbled the world's looniest lady. She doesn't engineer the outcome of his middling comedy of errors about a dysfunctional African-American clan. Furthermore, Aunt Bam (Cassi Davis) and Hattie (Patrice Lovely) get more laughs than Madea.

If you skipped "Boo" last year, you probably won't understand why the situation has changed. Bryant's oldest daughter has finally turned 18, and she believes that this solidifies her status as an adult, particularly the things she sought to do before she was 18. Brian and she initiate everything in "Boo 2" with their contentious father & daughter relationship, while Madea appears on the fringe like a guest star and exerts little, direct impact on these events in general. In other words, she doesn't save the day. Nevertheless, Madea fans will find enough to laugh and smile at even when they aren't laughing and smiling at Madea. Produced at a cost of $21 million, "Boo 2" has lots of polish, atmospheric locations, and set-design, and the acting is tolerable. Those goofy fraternity brothers—Vin Diesel lookalike Yousef Erakat and his pal Mike Tornabene—return for more mischief. However, Joe, Bam, and Hattie steal "Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween" from the monstrous matron.

"Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween" opens as Brian (Tyler Perry) waits at his teenage daughter's prep school, wearing a cone-shaped party cap, and with a gift in a decorative sack. Tiffany (Diamond White of "The Lion Guard") isn't pleased to see her father. Usually, Brian takes her home where the family assembles to eat cake and celebrate the occasion. Tiffany thinks the tradition stinks and wants nothing to do with it. Brian presents Tiffany with a pair of headphones as her birthday gift, so he won't have to contend with her music when she is in his car. Tiffany labored under the delusion that Brian was going to give her a shiny, new car for her birthday, since she is an adult with plans to attend college. Brian tells Tiffany that she is too irresponsible to have a vehicle. No sooner has he asserted himself on the subject than his ex-wife, Debra (Taja V. Simpson of "The Preacher's Son"), parks at the school and hands Tiffany the keys to a new red Mini-Cooper.

Naturally, Brian is disturbed because Debra has given Tiffany something that his daughter hasn't earned. Brian reminds Debra that Tiffany is hopelessly irresponsible and will probably get a ticket for reckless driving. As soon as she gets behind the wheel, Tiffany careens off to the Upsilon Theta Fraternity house where she crashed their Halloween party last year with her friend Gabriella (Inanna Sarkis of "A Killer Walks Amongst Us") in the first "Boo." Initially, Tiffany learns that the Upsilon Thetas are throwing another party, but her interference in last year's party has forced them to hold it somewhere else than their frat house. The fraternity leader, Jonathan (Yousef Erakat of "Natural Born Pranksters"), is relieved to hear that Tiffany is now old enough to drink. As it turns out, they are holding the party at the dilapidated, off-limits Derrick Lake campground where two savage killers attacked amorous couples necking in cars years ago. Worse, the authorities never caught those homicidal maniacs!

Back at Brian's house, the unfortunate father must endure no end of ridicule from his relatives, including Madea (Tyler Perry), Joe (Tyler Perry), Aunt Bam (Cassi Davis of "Daddy's Little Girls") and Hattie (newcomer Patrice Lovely), for letting his ex-wife one-up him with her birthday gift. So certain is Tiffany that Brian will not let her attend the Upsilon Theta party that she persuades Debra to let her sleep over at her mother's house. Furthermore, she convinces her mom to let her attend the Upsilon party. As luck would have it, Madea eavesdrops on their conversation and warns Brian about Tiffany's scheme. None of this prevents Tiffany from attending the party, and the party goes into full swing with lots of drinking and drugs, until two boogeymen in gas masks wielding chainsaws attack an Upsilon Theta pledge. A creepy girl who resembles the demons in those Japanese "Ring" horror movies watches them. At this point, Madea cruises into the haunted campground with Joe, Aunt Bam, and Hattie, collides with another demonic girl, and then confronts the Grim Reaper. Meantime, Jonathan, Tiffany, Dino, and Gabriella flee from Derrick Lake and take refuge in an abandoned house. Eventually, Brian and Gabriella's father, Victor (UFC fighter Tito Ortiz of "Cradle 2 the Grave"), ride to the rescue.

"Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween" is harmless, half-baked hokum bristling with low-brow slapstick comedy. Basically, the tenth Madea movie works on the level of an animated "Scooby-Doo" movie. Of course, everything works out well for everybody, but Madea doesn't dominate the shenanigans. Instead, Brian has a large hand in what happens at Derrick Lake. Far from qualifying as a treat, "Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween" amounts to little more than a trick.
A very typical sequel, but enjoyable laughs.
So as far as sequels go, this is a very typical one. I went to see Boo 2 because though Tyler Perry movies are not really my thing, I actually enjoined the first Boo, so I took the chance that I would enjoy the second one.

I totally did, too. It's not as good as the original. As much as I found the original funny, it also had an attempt to show family values in it that was not lost on me. This time around their attempt (If there was one cause I did not see it) was literally taken out to make more room for laughs. In a lot of ways it made the film like the second episode of one of Perry's shows (Which I like more than his movies), as it seems nobody learned the lesson from the first Madea Halloween.

Case in point, like the original, Boo 2 is about Joe trying to discipline his entitled daughter, Tiffany. Once again she defies her overbearing father's wishes in order to go to a party at midnight in the woods at a camp where a bunch of people got murdered. Now I understand the natural urge for a teenager not to want to listen to her dad, but when your aunt is someone like Madea, you would think you would think twice about this woman coming to track you down, especially after what happen in the last movie.

Like the last film, Boo 2 focuses on Madea and her friends running into terror and danger while trying to get to Tiffany. The film likes to Parody current themes in horror like with influences of Korean horror and it also pokes a nod to old school Horror with the film taking place at a camp and the underage teens being hunted by a man with a mask and a chainsaw.

Overall, I much prefer the more light hearted Tyler Perry movies. Sometimes his stuff can be too over dramatic for me, but I seem to like it when he goes for straight up Sitcom style on us and that's Boo 2!

It's crazy and filled with laughs and no matter where it fails compare to the first one, we are there to laugh and that's what makes this sequel enjoyable.

Noisy and Stoo-pit
More of the same is what Tyler 'Rut' (like, "in a rut") Perry has for us this time around.

His first Madea Halloween feature was moderately humorous, but it was ultimately a wanting endeavor. Madea and her posse yelled, screamed, and waxed imbecilic while the audience, depending on their love or dislike for Madea, either slapped their proverbial knees in loud guffaws or chomped deliberately on their popcorn wondering why the hell they paid the 15-buck contemporary theater price of admission when they could have stayed home and watched reruns of Sanford and Son instead. This fiasco is a faded rehash of the first Madea Boo story.

Thanks for nothing, Rut.
It was disappointing
I would have loved it if the prank was for real. How Madea would real act when scared for real.

What i didn't like : 1. Joe is too much and is no longer funny.

The teenager with her friend, were very boring.

The whole movie was disappointing.

The turn around of the ex wife was very not genuine. I would have loved to have seen more drama on that and also when Perry heard that his ex allowed the daughter to go for a party, i have loved Tyler not to be part of the prank and also Tyler not to let the daughter go easy. Bottom line drama was not there and the bit that was there was not interesting.
Neither The Best Nor The Worst
Tyler Perry is something of an American phenomenon—a one-man motion picture industry. As a director, writer, or producer—and frequently all three—Perry since 2005 has been responsible for some twenty remarkably successful motion pictures. And that's in addition to the pictures of other filmmakers in which Perry has appeared only as an actor—popular films such as "Star Trek," "Alex Cross," and "Gone Girl."

To date, nine of Tyler Perry's twenty pictures as a producer, writer, or director have featured the character Madea, a plain-spoken and tough- loving elderly woman with a nurturing heart, a highly-acute antenna for the difference between right and wrong, and a penchant for involving herself in the troubles of other people.

Madea, who's played in elaborate makeup and costuming by Perry himself, is based in equal measures upon the filmmaker's mother and aunt, and is partially inspired by the characterizations and performances by comic Eddie Murphy in the 2000 comedy "The Nutty Professor II."

Tyler Perry's comedies are remarkably accessible to filmgoing audiences. While the motion pictures of other filmmaking multi-taskers often appeal to an especially exclusive and rarefied demographic—Woody Allen springs to mind—Perry's movies are popular entertainment for anyone who loves to laugh.

Unfortunately, "Boo 2!" is not among Perry's best pictures…or even among his best Madea pictures. While the laughs are there, especially for Perry's legions of fans and Madea aficionados, they're more sparse than usual, and less frequent. Both the filmmaker and the character he created seem to be going through the motions by rote, and without heart.

"Boo 2!" is enjoyable enough. But audiences unfamiliar with Tyler Perry or Madea might find themselves wondering what all the fuss is about.
I'm not sure
Spoiler: I watched this movie the other day. The part I didn't like is when Joe was in the car with Leah at the camp. And Joe asked her if she was a minor and she said she was. Then he made a sexual remark. That wasn't cool.

Overall this movie was funny, but Madea isn't as funny as Hattie. Hattie cracks me up.
Boo 2 or Boo Who? Familiar Tactics Will Please Fans With Laughs, But Plot Fails Like Being Sick On Halloween
Hellur! Tyler Perry's signature character has made her mark for so many years, teaching lessons in her own unique manner. These movies have come in all sorts of scenarios, many being close carbon copies of the predecessors that laid the foundation. This series continues to rope loyal fans into the theater though, never tiring of the gimmicks cooked up at Perry Studios. Tonight, the sequel to Madea's Halloween tale emerges, in hopes of mimicking the success it brought not long ago. What's the verdict? Robbie K, here asking you to read on to find out his opinions.


Familiarity: When it comes to Madea, you don't expect much deviation from the formula, a comforting factor indeed. Perry's writing doesn't try to be anything it's not, and that nets some respect in bringing the laughs that make so many laugh. And if you're a fan of this series, you'll have nothing to fear in regards to the comedy at hand (as evidenced by many people howling with laughter in my showing.)

Plenty of Madea: Some Madea movies don't do give the mad lady her adequate screen time, choosing instead to go for a more drama (soap opera like) plot. Boo 2 is more than happy to give you a Madea fix, with much of the 100-minute run time staying on our "protagonist." She leads much of the banter, and her insults are more than enough to keep things engaging alongside her older colleagues. So, for a movie promising Madea, this film delivers on this aspect as well.

Fast Pace: Another positive for Boo 2 is that the movie doesn't dawdle when it comes to getting to the laughs. A small, simplistic opening makes way to the comedy at hand, taking less than 20 minutes to get to the first bout of Madea running her mouth. Once that first joke flies, the movie continues at a steady pace and creating the effect of time flying (seriously had no idea an hour had passed). This leads to an entertaining environment that is simply fun on many levels, that's right no complicated thinking in this film.

Joe: By far the best part of the movie for me is Madea's brother Joe. While his sexually harsh jokes, lack of respect for others, and intense focus on drugs are not my main source of humor, this character has some of the best comedic moments of the movie. His timing is well- executed, and his lines are just harsh enough to offset the bickering this movie holds within. The piece de resistance though, is how well Perry delivers that gruff edge in his humor to maximize the punch of the line and keep the laughs fresh. I found myself laughing the most with his scenes and was glad to see more Joe in this film.


Unoriginal: Familiarity is fun and entertaining, but it is also lacking the original twist I like to see in the films. Every Madea film has a slight twist to it, but this film is too much a copy of the first Halloween movie that the tactics are fairly stale. Had it not been for the comedic timing at some parts of the movie, the bantering would have gotten much staler as the old folks complained about the same things consistently. This dislike also goes to the fact that Madea's jokes are losing favor with me, especially when they drop the morals for incoherent babbling and arguing.

The College Kids: If you read my last Madea review, you know the college kids didn't impress me. Sadly, this movie managed to make me loathe these characters even more. Rather than giving the younger characters some admirable qualities, outside of superficial looks, Perry crafted them to be the same, shallow, annoying selves they were in the past, only much worse. The fraternity brother are even hornier, stupid meatheads with little contribution to the movie. Leah (Lexy Panterra) is reduced to a squabbling airhead, who does little, but flash off her own body with overacted gestures and a skin-tight leopard shirt. Yet, the worst character goes to Tiffany (Diamond White) the arrogant brat who supposedly learned her lesson last time. After all the punishing blows, the hotheaded teen hasn't learned a thing and has fallen back into the same annoying qualities I despised in the first film. What's even more pathetic, is that they don't use her selfishness very well to drive a moral filled plot, but just as a tool for more jokes. Sadly, this movie doesn't give the satisfying punch that its predecessor accomplished.

No story: Boo 2's other major dislike for me is that lack of a story. It's true, the movie runs at a quick pace and is entertaining, but the trailers have tricked you into thinking there is a story. This particular Madea story is the lamest story of the bunch, with only a hair thin plot to ground the comedy too. Past this skeletal frame, the movie is only about cramming the most jokes into the run time, which also took away from the Madea formula.


Boo 2 is a sequel that accomplishes the goal of making you laugh with the same familiar tactics Perry has capitalized on for the last decade. It's simple fun, fast paced humor will keep fans howling in delight, while also welcoming a new age in with its simplicity. Yet, I found this movie to be the weakest of the installments, particularly due to the unbalanced characters and lack of story to guide the mischief better. Safe to say this movie is meant for home viewing pleasure where you can enjoy the banter and insults with better snacks and bathroom privileges.

My scores:

Comedy/Horror: 7.0 Movie Overall: 5.0
Tyler Perry Does Not Respect His Audience
Ten films in, it's pretty much assumed by now that the Madea series has shaken off any audiences who don't already want to be on its coattails. Those in the theater with me wanted to be there and damn all those who, like myself, would snap-judge Madea and her posse of octogenarian clowns. Screw those who poo-poo the series for being painfully unfunny, offensively trashy, unendingly annoying, obnoxiously time consuming, woefully amateurish and elementally lacking in the basic necessities of competent storytelling. For even if you think all these things, you still must admit, if nothing else, Tyler Perry's wildly successful, cheaply made, broadly drawn comedy series has legs that just won't quit.

So for a change, I'll dispense with the usual five minute set. I won't complain about how unfunny this particular film is as claiming so can be waived off by someone else managing a slight chuckle. I won't complain about the disjointed, obvious and boooooring narrative which chugs along like Madea's Cadillac on a flat tire. Heck, I won't even talk about how every time a Madea flick comes out, seeing the crowd makes me question human behavior to the extent that I feel like the proverbial next door neighbor saying, "He was so very nice – no idea what could have gone wrong." Instead I'd like to focus all my attention (and vitriol) on Tyler Perry's apparent lack of respect for his audience; a lack of respect that, more than ever feels gross and mean-spirited. Before watching Boo 2, I ascribed to the same school of thought as Demetria Lucas D'Oyley when she wrote for The Root, "He has a lane. He drives in it." The appeal of his characters and his outsized media persona is one of broad stroke buffoonery and simple-world proselytizing but at least he's found his fans and they've found him. Marriage made in heaven with the same level of intensity as Insane Clown Posse and their Juggolos.

Yet by the time the film drops its first plot point, it becomes clear the love is all one-sided. Nearly everything of substance from the first film has been erased; the lessons, the character dynamics, the film's very continuity all heavily favoring a hard reboot where nothing about Boo 1! (2016) actually mattered. The movie then strips out all of the forced religiosity save for a few God d**ns which, for better or worse, made Madea part of a certain audiences' normal media diet.

Lacking a plot at all capable of filling in the one and a half hour run time and all that's left to pad this largely melted s**t sundae is Perry mugging for the camera as one of three insufferable characters. This wouldn't be such a problem for fans accustomed to the constant barrage of b***hing and nagging. But most of what is said are quite literally rewrites of the same tired jokes we've heard in Witness Protection (2012), Big Happy Family (2011) and for that matter, the first Boo! There's even the reoccurring "she's really a dude" gag that's repeated not once, not twice but three bloody times! I'd say it's lazy but given how absurdly repetitive this all is, I was half expecting Sacha Baron Cohen to come popping out of that dress saying, "gotcha!" All this and add to it Perry's obviously censored d**ns, f**ks and s**ts and you got yourself a movie that is daring longtime fans to abandon Perry's media empire built on lazy, terrible stereotypes. And what's left when all that bilious smoke has cleared? A quickie cash grab haphazardly assembled with no interest in delivering the minimum, let alone a worthwhile product. Comparatively this thing is somewhere between Madea Goes to Jail (2009) and one of Tyler Perry's bowel movements after one too many Arby's Beef 'N Cheddars. And that my friends, is about as objectively critical as one can be without screaming at the box office numbers and questioning whether there is a God.
Funniest movie of DA year y'all
Firstest of all DA haters can just get shook off. #shakeemoff

Tyler Perry is both DA funniest man and woman simultaneously in dis film y'all.

I was luffing so hard i almost choked on mu popcorn yo but also dis movie is also Hakka scurry yo, Dem jump scares had me like "oh snap" but Madea handled DAT stuff, yo go girl and den also you give it up to DA jay man in the sky #blessesed

i hope they make 8 mo sequels because dis was tight. -------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------- ------------------------------------------------------------------ Mr.Perry this is the fan base you appeal to, At very least this is what you imagine the mindset of your audience to be.

Your films are modern day minstrel shows and as Madea you personify every negative stereotype that exists in black culture. Nothing about what you do or say is even remotely funny.

I wonder on occasion if through the piles of cash and the turbid veil of Hollywood, If you take the time to look at yourself in the mirror before you inevitably shuck and jive your way through another film.
