Last year on Halloween, my friends and I decided we were too old to go trick or treating but we certainly weren’t too old to go out for a Halloween movie. We had decided to watch “Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween.”
Although it wasn’t the type movie that gave us the chills, it still gave us the sense of Halloween. On Oct. 20, 2017, Lionsgate studio released a sequel to Perry’s first Halloween movie, and to stay in the Halloween spirit, I had decided to go enjoy the second film Halloween night.
This film begins with Tiffany (played by Diamond White) and her 18th birthday party. Tiffany believes she has become an adult and asks her father if she can attend a frat party. Her father, Brian, says no and warns Tiffany not to go. The teenager disobeys her father and decides to sneak out to the frat party at a lake, where there was a mass murder a few years back.
A relative of Tiffany, Madea (Played by Perry), hears about the mischievous plan and goes out with her elderly squad to find her grandniece in fear that something bad will occur. When reaching the lake, Madea runs frantically looking for Tiffany when realizing owners of the lake are on the loose “killing” people who are on the property. This is where the movie starts to progress its plot. Now I won’t spoil the rest of the movie, but if you’re in the mood for a good laugh, this movie might do the trick.
Many of the Tyler Perry movies made are rated PG-13 and are under the comedy genre. This Halloween movie, similar to the movie that was released last year, gives some horror aspects but makes it less intense with adult humor. Making less than previous Madea movies, “Boo 2” made around $50 million in movie theatres worldwide.
Looking at reviews online, some people believed that Madea movies based on holidays aren’t working for the studio, but others thought the movie was perfect and held the same great comedy as movies in the past. I personally think Tyler Perry movies that were released before “Boo 2” were a lot more entertaining since the plot and jokes were very repetitive in this year’s production. This of course is just my opinion, but it all depends on how entertaining you find Madea.
Despite the large mentions of substance use and inappropriate jokes, this story does contain a tiny moral, which is a positive message on parent and teen relationships. Tiffany and her father Brian grow closer as the movie ends, understanding that there are consequences for actions. And, there is the hint that parents are always there to protect their children no matter what.
