Madea And Her Social Influence

Madea is a fictional character created and portrayed by Tyler Perry. When imagining the character of Madea, think of the character of Eddie Murphy’s mother in The Nutty Professor, crossed with Whoopi Goldberg in the funny movie The Sister Act with a really short temper.

What makes the Madea character popular is that her personality is very unique. Despite her efforts to be righteous, she always seems to get herself into trouble, even landing herself into jail many times over. Her aggressive, funny antics, which are truly unladylike for a 60-something, huge, Africa–American woman is hilarious. Another thing that makes Madea shows and movies a hit with the audience is the family aspect of the stories.

Madea’s situations always revolve around her crazy family and the funny-and-loud way they talk to each other. Tyler Perry is an African-American, and their lives are mostly reflected in the feature films he does for Madea. But while many are entertained, some are not.

Madea featured films can be viewed even on the internet. This means it is easily accessible to children. The question is, despite the idea to make Madea’s character a righteous grandmother or as a role model, is the theme of her films generally acceptable to be watched by children and teenagers? Conservative parents would probably disagree. Madea movies are loud with a lot of screaming and rudeness. It shows prostitute characters, adults smoking pot, rebellious children and being aggressive to law enforcement officers. Some would say it is not advisable to be watched by young children because it teaches them foul language and speaking rudely.

While elements of prostitution, drugs and violence are also present in other comedy movies, the difference probably lies in the character. Madea is supposed to be a hip grandmother but her character in the films show the opposite. Madea is a cantankerous character who always gets in trouble with the law. Many small children see their grandparents as righteous and well-mannered. Seeing the character of Madea will probably confuse them about the role of grandparents in the family.

But Madea continues to be loved by many audiences, especially with the African-American community. Although many did not seem to be impressed with the recent movie, Madea’s Witness Protection, she continues to make noises in the film industry and her character will probably live on for a long time.

    • DJ Whisper says:

      Seriously?

      Madea, you continue to be who you are and bring laughter into our lives! Those who do not like you or what you represent (REAL LIFE) know how to turn the channel or better yet, watch their children a little more closely so they do not stumble on things they feel their children should not view. I love your movies and your play’s. Even though you may at times bring a harsher tone to reality, it is exactly that, reality! Your movies and play’s always have a story to tell that in the end shows Madea as someone who loves and cares even if she’s not uptight and snooty like the holier than thou Grandma’s out there! Your awesome TP, keep doing what you do. :)

    • Nancy Baptist says:

      I love Madea!!Bring more of Madea’s movies!!!!!!!!!!!Please love them all

    • Michelle says:

      I want more madea !! she is super funny .she’s down .We need her on that big screen pouring out her message ,standing tall and making us feel good.

    • i love that woman, Madea is as hip as any young woman, and she tells it like it is, these shows are about the real world not some fantasy. if you do not want your child to see them then block it, that is why they put parental control on the cable and internet. but is is not anything they do not see or hear in the real world and that id what Madea is all about!!

  2. Nancy Kanady says:

    I LOVE the character Madea….I AM that grandmother. lol. She takes up for those who cant and she fights for her family. She may knock a few heads but some folks got to be woke up firs. <3

  3. Lou says:

    All the Madea plays and movies are great. I remember we had a Madea character in every neighborhood and the children knew someone was always noticing what they were doing. As I see it today, the young people do not believe there are people caring what happens to them. Now days the children seem to have the authority and the parents have to listen to the children. Please keep up the good work..

  4. DENISE says:

    I LIKE THE FLIMS AND MOVIES MR.PERRY PUTS OUT. I LOVE MADEA’S CHARACTER. HER CHARACTER IS DOING NO MORE THAN WHAT OTHERS ARE DOING AND SOME ARE WORST. IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT SIMPLE DON’T WATCH IT END OF STORY. THERE ARE SO MANY OTHER INPORTANT THINGS GOING ON IN THE WORLD TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT THEN WHAT A TV (CHARACTER) IS DOING.

  5. Cindy I. Philemon says:

    Madea and her Social Influence is very much needed in todays society. In every family there is always a fruit cake someone crazy or ignorant. Madea teaches you how to handle them sometimes without saying a word just looking at them or laughing inwardly. She knows how to work and captivate her audience. When Madea speaks everyone listen even down to the hot grits and frying pan. She teaches us not to take an abusive relationship lightly, get the hell out!

  6. Aly says:

    More movies!

    • lois leblanc says:

      More movies….I agree completely!!! I have received more on ”forgiveness” than on any replica of what a grandmother is suppose to be like.

  7. Terri says:

    More!!!! Please!!!

  8. Jeneen yarbrough says:

    i love Madea make more movies

  9. Valerie England says:

    I have loved Tyler Perry/Madea from the get go…I pray that she stays around 4eva!!! I believe that all of her movies have a good moral background even though she has a crazy way of getting the point across..I Love All of Them..keep on doing what you’re doing…please :) <3

  10. I love Madea. I can’t get enough. She is so funny. She teaches you life lessons. How to deal with abuse. I have to say please make more movies!!!!

  11. Cheri says:

    I LOVE TYLER PERRY & his unique character MADEA! She’s hilarious & real! Regardless of Madea’s itch for trouble, she always takes care of her family & she loves God. I’ve been a fan since before the movies ever came out, watching all the plays & every play/movie has an important life message that I cherish & value. We can’t shelter our children from the world & if we could, Madea would be the least of our worries! Can’t wait for another Madea film!!!

  12. Lee Caballero says:

    In watch all His plays and movies , have gotten me much closer to people and GOD. In, Madea’s special ways his lectures and messages have come out loud and clear . You, Sir, is a Blessing from God . Even thou ur life started out rough ,but I do believe GOD had special tasks for you and with GOD seems we have to start from the bottom with nothing so HE can build us up to his PERFECTION . MERRY CHRISTMAS , AND HOPING YOU WILL CELEBRATE HIS BIRTHDAY WITH LOVE ONES .

  13. Carol says:

    I love all the work Tyler Perry does he knows how to hit home and Madea is just another blessing she tells it like it is. Tyler is a God sent.I would love to see more Madea movies. Iwould also love to say Merry Christmas and have a Blessed New Year.

  14. PAMELA LEWIS says:

    FOR MANY OF US THE CHARACTER THAT IS MADEA IS TRUTH FOR US TP, HAS SPRINKLED TRUTH WITH HUMOR…….FOR MANY OF US IT IS LIFE AND A LIFESTYLE!

  15. margie stewart says:

    I think this character is a bad example of many things, Christianity especially. It’s near blasphemous the things “she” says i.e “I’ll come to church when they get a social section”, or while flashing her gun: “This is my peace”.

    I believe Mr. Perry is very gifted and production in many ways. He does not need this character to enhance his career.

    • Joy beautiful says:

      Who wrote that clip? Apparently they have never lived in the poor part of town where this is the norm. Yes the grandmothers in here toot they own horn. They are loud, boisterous. They curse a lot. But in the end, gma settles the score one way or the other. I think if police would just let gma handle it in a lot of situations, cops wouldn’t need to work the area. I wouldn’t trade anything in my life being the Madea in my neighborhood. This is the way it should be. Yes, there are some unconventional ways of doing things but in real life that’s how it its. There are some aunt Bea and Mrs. cleavers out there but when it gets down to it, there are more big mommas and madeas than you know, and we can relate.

  16. MICA says:

    LOVE ME SOME MADEA…I WANT TO BE JUST LIKE HER. WE NEED MORE MOVIES. SHE ALWAYS MAKES ME LAUGH. I SAY IF SHE A BAD INFLUNCE ON YOUNG KIDS THEN DONT WATCH HER MOVIES. ITS YOUR CHOICE ON WHAT YOU WATCH YOU KNOW. BRING ON SOME MORE MADEA!!!!!!!!!!

  17. cindy lou says:

    I love Madea but wish the pot theme would disappear; seems to be encouraging kids to try it!

    • Michele says:

      kids will try pot (and worse drugs) without Madea. Can’t blame Tyler Perry’s character for the war on drugs!

  18. suzette says:

    love all the moves and shows , would like to see more of them all

  19. Dayatra Smith says:

    I love Madea!! In some places this character is a reality! There were (and probably still are) grandmothers that have this personality! With all the silly and wild antics that come from Madea when you get past the “bad behavior” you WILL see there is a positive message that comes out in the end! Don’t know Madea she is my granny minus the smoking!! Great job Mr. Perry keep ‘em coming!!

  20. Candi says:

    I LOVE Madea!!! I hope she stays around for a lonnng time!! She says what most of us want to say, but dont. I LMAO at all the movies/plays she is in. Tyler Perry is such a wonderful actor….and he’s easy on the eyes!! :D

  21. TERRY says:

    Madea is the best! We need Those grandmothers back. these parents r off the chain.

  22. Cindy D. says:

    I love Madea, it’s the funniest, shows i’ve watched in a very long time. Keep them comming Please!

  23. Theresa martin says:

    I think we need way more madea! She draws more Non Christians in by her humor and wit and with that, they receive the message from God.
    I love hearing non Christians and Jews and other religions saying, halleluyer!
    The movie represents all people, all walks of life and what the real world goes through daily. How can anyone say she is a bad example of a christian when non of us are any better, she’s the “real deal, daily life” along with the rear of the characters. We laugh and cry with them. We can relate to each of them. She is a keeper!

  24. Matt says:

    Hmmmmm, Opinions are like armpits,… everybody has a couple!! So here is mine….. Love all the screen plays and movies of Mr Perry’s I think that if we as a country would get back to raising our kids and using all the technology as opportunities to learn , not be the only avenue of learning then we would be much better off. I think all the Tyler Perry movies do is give the “family” opportunities to discuss real life influences, that will be present in your childs life at somepoint anyway. And if you don’t take every opportunity to teach them , then that is the fault of the parent not media influences. Heller !!! wake up ppl lol

  25. Megan says:

    LOVE Madea!! All of Tyler Perry’s movies are great but the ones with Madea are def the ones I look out for!

  26. Lynne Young says:

    I love Madea! Want more movies please! The world needs Madea!

  27. Keishala Hampton says:

    I love watching Madea and don’t have a problem with allowing my kids to watch her also.There’s always a moral to the stories,which sometimes help alot of families with problems ..my thing is this if you don’t want ur kids to watch it,you have options ..you can turn the channel when it comes on,don’t buy the movies from the stores,and block it from ur kids on the internet ..But don’t make it seem like its bad for all kids cause its not and we sure would like to see more movies and plays.keep doing your thing Mr.Tylt Perry

  28. DJ Whisper says:

    Seriously?

    Madea, you continue to be who you are and bring laughter into our lives! Those who do not like you or what you represent (REAL LIFE) know how to turn the channel or better yet, watch their children a little more closely so they do not stumble on things they feel their children should not view. I love your movies and your play’s. Even though you may at times bring a harsher tone to reality, it is exactly that, reality!

Your awesome TP, keep doing what you do. * Sorry for the duplicate post ~ Please post this one instead, did not realize I posted as a reply instead of my own comment.

  29. Violet says:

    I think that Tyler Perry needs to make more Madea movies you have every thing in these movies comedy, drama, religion, street facts, etc…. I love them and I have every one that is out ond DVD.

  30. Amanda says:

    more movies please !!! everything about Madea gives a good message more parents should be like her not everything she does but most of it !! :)

  31. Yolanda Goodwin- walker says:

    I love Madea Movies & Plays. They are not incouraging kids/ppl to do anything they don’t already sea or know sombody doing. Many grandparents are off the hook, maner wise, and can’t talk right anymore but still have wisdom if we take the time to listen. Tyler Perry always make sure a message is reconized in his wk. Above all it encourages family, loyalty to someone, a trip back down memory lane, and having fun. Don’t be so sensitive!

  32. Eddie says:

    Madea is the best. Bring on more movies

  33. susan windham says:

    MORE MORE MORE MOVIES!!!!!!!!!!!

  34. linda sides says:

    so often in this world where we have to deal with cruelty at its worst, turning on MADEA , can make it all go away for a little while…..thank God for TYLER PERRY and his humor…..

  35. Starla says:

    Tyler Perry and his Madea character are great!!! Madea always makes sense when she gives serious advise… Have even quoted her a few times.. Always up for another Madea Movie!!!

  36. arlene buchanan says:

    I love Madea! She speaks common sense in a crazy world

  37. I love Madea. Please make more movies with more apperances of her in them. Its refreshing to be able to watch a movie that has comady that makes you really laugh ,and not have to listen to the vulgar talk that movies have in it today. I love the glock toting grandma. Yes please make more.

  38. Diana Bradford says:

    Tyler Perry is awesome love all his creations ! Madea is just my personal favorite ! More more and more please

  39. Sarah says:

    I love Madea! Need more of her movies! Tyler Perry is very creative!

  40. Michele says:

    Was this review computer generated? I am WHITE, and I am that grandmother! Not only do I own a GLOCK, my husband and I own a room full of weapons. Our kids (5 boys) have grown into responsible, productive adults. Oldest is a Captain on a boat for the oil fields, 2nd boy has autism, graduated high school, and works full time along with participating in Special Olympics at the Alabama state level. The twins are in the Marines and the Navy. The one in the Navy is training to be a Navy Diver. The youngest is in Advanced Placement in High School. Without my husband and I “Acting like Madea,” these boys would have run rampant, and would have developed a sense of “entitlement,” therefore, would have become dependent on the Government (or us), to support them. SCREW THAT LIBERAL WHO MADE THIS REVIEW! THE AUTHOR OF THIS REVIEW IS WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS COUNTRY!

    • Alice says:

      My family loves Madea! My granddaughter has her down pat and can talk just like her. Tyler Perry is a film making genius that I have tons of respect for. We are ready for some new Madea

  44. More movies love all of them !!!

  45. NobleHead says:

    GuurrLLL you got telent, get yourself back on the big screen… LOLL :D

  46. Vicki Brown says:

    I’m not African American and personally, I love the Madea movies. They’re hilarious and, yeah they shouldn ‘t be watched by young children, but Tyler Perry needs to keep on making them. Parents need to be aware of what their children are watching. There are a whole lot of movies out there that make bad examples of adults so it could be lots worse. His movies weren’t intended for young children anyway. I can’t wait for the next movies to come out. I follow them on FB all the time. Thanks Mr. Perry. You’re doing a great job entertaining us so keep up the good work!

  47. cathie weed says:

    I love her you dont play her enough

  48. HELLUR!!
    PLEASE CONTINUE, ITS VERY EDUCATIONAL AND HILARIOUS TOO!!
    ME AND MY FAMILY WATCH THE FILMS TOGETHER, IT ALSO BRINGS BANK OLD MEMORY’S.
    IT’S VERY GOOD FOR THE YOUTH. THEY LAUGH, BUT STILL LEARN FROM IT.

  49. Shonda Napper says:

    I love Madea, would love more movies with her in them

  50. Nancy Baptist says:

    Love Tyler Perry, every movies he make is great!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and I cannot get enough of Madea. BRING MADEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  51. Madea is what I call the “Tough Love Queen* because she is honest, real, and blunt. No need to sugar coat anything when you can be straight forward and honest. Those old time values that we are so missing today. I am Madea’s biggest fan, truly need more of her wit, wisdom, and sound advice around. Plus, she is hilarious!

  52. Mary says:

    I love Madea!!! Make more movies!!!!! Hurry!!!

  53. Vicky Franklin says:

    Madea rocks!!! I look forward to every new movie that comes out with her in it. She is hilarious! She may be loud and unconventional but she speaks the truth and when it comes down to it she is there for her family. She shows tough love and takes no crap. My entire family loves her and we are always telling people they should watch Tyler Perry’s movies and plays. We own most of the movies and plays and watch them all the time. My younger daughter has her sister listed in her phone contacts as beautifer and we often answer one anothers calls with “heller”. If people cannot look past the tough exterior of Madea and see the good messages in the movies and plays then they need to go to a Disney movie. We are all christians in my family and we are not offended by anything in Tyler Perry’s movie. Matter of fact we have told our pastor she needs to watch the movies. Keep Madea movies coming Tyler Perry!

  54. rhonda says:

    Really? In creating Madea, Mr. Perry has used a literary device known as a “FOIL”. Foils, like the court jesters of old, clothe their commentaries on society by using humor. That being said… the commentary about grandparents being righteous and well-mannered is DRIVEL! Small children don’t have concepts like “righteous” OR “well-mannered”! Those are societal concepts/ideals fostered by adults! These ideals aren’t exclusive to age, either! That being said… Mr. Perry should keep giving us MORE Medea!

  55. Kimberly Guerrero says:

    Gurd Mourting….

    Madea is the good and the bad with the best intensions. My family loves all of Tyler Perry’s plays and movies, House of Pain. The talent Tyler has should never stop, as long as God is behind his works and there is a message to share i say LONG LIVE MADEA/TYLER PERRY.

    God Bless
    We Love You !!!!!

  56. nakole says:

    We want more Madea

  57. Kathy Hedges says:

    Love Madea and my niece and I text back and forth during movies when on TV. There are worst characters out there. Madea in the end, always ends up teaching a good lesson. MORE MADEA. :)

  58. More please! I love Madea. Tyler Perry Rocks!

  59. Sigrid says:

    I am a huge Madea fan. I am from Aruba and I try not to miss any of Tyler Perry’s movies. I think this guy is a genius. I love the way Madea’s movies and evolves around family issues that always has message. Tyler Perry keep up the good work and I hope to see more of Madea’s incredible stories.

  60. Dora says:

    Everybody has a Madea in their family, I do. I love her because you don’t have to wonder or assume what she thinks about you or your situation. She is woman enough to tell you straight to your face and not behind your back, now if you can handle it is your problem. As my dear aunt would say, ” she shoot straight from the hips to the lips”.

  61. Steve says:

    I love the Madea character, and would say make many more movies with her in them, but not now that Tyler Perry is no longer going to play Madea. He IS Madea. No one else can play that role. If he is not going to play her, he should not make any more movies with her in them.

  62. Destiny says:

    Love the movies :) make more!!!!!!

  63. I think that Madea has a Powerful Impact on children& Adults n a Positive way.She reminds me of my mother n a lot of ways.She say wht she mean& mean wht she say.I wld LOVE to see more of her how about MADEA gets SAVED.

  64. Althea Carroll says:

    I love Madea, she remiinds me of women in my family who cares and pay attention to the children. You don’t have to watch her, and you should alls know what your childrenare watching. Be more responseable. More movies.

  65. Linda Brooks says:

    I love Madea. I am a white grandma, and I have my grandchildren watch everyone of those movies. I want them to know that there are consequences for every bad thing you do. She is a great role model, and I want more of those movies. It is all about family with Tyler Perry. I love all his stuff but Madea most of all.

  66. sherry martin says:

    MORE TYLER PERRY AND MORE MADEA!!!!!!!!!HECK YEA <3

  70. John Faulkner says:

    We need more movies with Madea, please.

  71. KEVIN HURST says:

    MADEA IS ONE OF THE BEST THINGS TO HAPPEN TO THE SILVER SCREEN AND TELEVISION , HILARIOUS IS A UNDERSTATEMENT YOU ARE TRULY TALENTED AND POKE FUN AT THINGS THAT MANY PEOPLE THINK ABOUT DAILY , CONTINUE TO DO WHAT YOU DO , THANK YOU FOR ASKING OUR OPINION SOMETHING REFRESHING TO KNOW THAT SOMEONE CARES .

  72. Marci Ferguson says:

    Madea is hilarious & says what most of us only wish we had the guts to say. Yet, she (& Mr. Perry) ‘teach without the preach’. Seriously, are people worried about Madea being a bad influence? If that was the worst I had to worry about with my children, I’d be delighted! Madea movies might be the closest thing to church or God some kids (& adults) ever see. Bring them on!!!!

  73. Amanda says:

    I Love Madea !!! I am ready for some new movies !!! I think Madea is awesome and if anyone who thinks she isn’t ..you don’t have to watch the character of Madea has enough fans that she don’t need the negative people :) Tyler Perry is awesome !!

  74. Toni says:

    I love Madea!!!!! More movies please.

  75. Felicia says:

    Keep her alive and please don’t stop when I’m feeling lonely and missing my mother I put on Madea and it just uplift my spirit always…Love you Mr.Tyler Perry

  76. Charla Bufkin says:

    The people opposed to Madea movies live in worlds where those situations do not touch their lives, or if they do, they’re not talked about. Most likely those people believe that women, regardless of race, do not exists in the real world because they do not see them in their world. Some people are sheltered from such situations by the Grace of God. We don’t know why God allows the lives people lead. DON’T JUDGE, it’s God’s job to do that. I personally do not use the language in the movies and most people in my world don’t either. And I probably think it’s not necessary, but in the world of Madea and Tyler Perry, that’s what’s real. I have not personally been in any of those situations, but I do know people who have survived similar situations. As far as who has access to what on the internet, there’s a thing out there on all devices called “Parental Control” and it sounds like those people need to learn how to install them. Now about the content. Those situations are real and there are no boundaries when it comes to race or economic situations. Women and men are victims of domestic violence. Women and men go through divorces, lose custody of children, make mistakes in their youth that come back to haunt them. I could go on but I think you see the point. Madea is funny, entertaining, says things to people we WISH we could, and there is ALWAYS a Christian moral to the story and inspiration in the end.

  77. Cynthia Rizer says:

    I Love the Madea character. I especially like that Tyler does not leave God out!
    No matter what movie or show is about, he never leave God out of it. Thats what I really enjoy. Bring on more Madea!!!

  78. Cookie says:

    I love madea as a actor …maybe young kids shouldn’t be on the Internet. …I loooooove your movies tyler perry keep em coming

  79. Oh Hell yeah we need more Madea movies. She is the voice of wisdom and humor and one of my greatest teachers and I’m 56 years young!

  80. sherry says:

    we absolutely need more madea she represents the old ways of respect and morals through the children to the elders, i wish more programs were based on these things my whole family from old to young loves madea, tyler perry is a wonderful inspirational person i hope he lives many years so he can keep trying to help the world and the children and parents get it right thank you mr perry for all you are doing love your work

  81. thelma wiliams says:

    I love me some Madea.Please continue to make movies and plays featuring Madea. Madea is real and don’t let anyone forget it.She says what needs saying and most children unfortunately live in homes and go places and watch TV that has much worse language and situations than what Madea portrays.Mr.Perry has done so well for himself but most of all has helped so many people that if he stops playing Madea because of the narrow minded haters I would be sad and disappointed in him.

    • cindy says:

      People are always talking about Madea and what she portrays, but its okay for your children to watch movies about murder. I think not. If you don’t want your children or you for that matter to watch Madea movies or plays then don’t. But the ones like me and other Madea lovers, we would really like to be able to watch our Madea movies and plays without criticism. There is no one and I mean no one that would be able to play Madea like Tyler Perry. It would not be the same. Tyler Perry is a very inspirational person. He teaches what life is really like. Kids are on the internet and other places looking at murder, sex bullying, and parents don’t care about that. As a matter of fact, parents will even take their children to R rated movies. So who are you to say Madea is not good. Not me. I Looooooooove Madea. We most definitely need more of Madea, played by Tyler Perry.

  82. froggysuitor says:

    Bring lots more madea love her movies

  83. Allison says:

    MADEA is the best! Please make more MADEA movies!! I watch them over and over all the time! If we had more people like her, this world would be a better place! She is my role model! :) LOVE HER!!!

  84. sonja says:

    The beautiful thing about America is that you have a choice to watch what you want to watch and when you want to watch it. If you want censorship start with closing your eyes and turning the channel & monitor your children on the internet for there is a lot of raunchy that shown daily on prime time television and you can’t even type in the letters “S” without a porn site to gain access to your computer. Bottom line= ” “Back the hell up” in my best Madea’s voice.

  85. goldie says:

    LOVE, LOVE Madea movies, these are the only movies that I pay to see at a theater. Please keep’em coming.

  86. cindy says:

    I love all of tyler perry’s movies and plays. He teaches on what real discipline is.
    Those children in the movies are taught how to be respectful towards their elders. Maybe people need to watch and learn how to discipline their children so they will not run over their parents or elders. Keep up the great work Tyler. MORE MADEA, MORE MADEA, MORE MADEA. I love you Tyler Perry.

    • chamedale says:

    Tyler Perry has a way of making real life issues more bearable through his movies. Everyone can relate to them, and Madea adds a spark of real entertainment. I buy all of his movies and when a new one comes out I always check to see if Madea is in it, Because those are my favorite. We need a lot more Madea!!

    I love her movies!! Keep on making them Tyler…the ones who don’t like em can just not watch them.

  94. shanta says:

    I love Madea nd Tyler Perry is a great guy. For those that think Madea is setting a bad example for children no she’s not; cause at the end she shows children that u can be respect nd polite to the elders. If y’all feel dat your child or children is learning the opposite don’t let them watch it…
    Tyler Perry keep up the good work,and let God continue blessing u.
    LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!

    Who write that clip? Apparently they have never lived in the poor part of town where this is the norm. Yes the grandmothers in here toot they own horn. They are loud, boisterous. They curse a lot. But in the end, gma settles the score one way or the other. I think if police would just let gma handle it in a lot of situations, cops wouldn’t need to work the area. I wouldn’t trade anything in my life being the Madea in my neighborhood. This is the way it should be. Yes, there are some unconventional ways of doing things but in real life that’s how it its. There are some aunt Bea and Mrs. cleavers out there but when it gets down to it, there are more big mommas and madeas than you know, and we can relate.

    I love the character and I laugh and learn a lot from the movies. Do what feelss right for you and your soul. I would not approve of a man in a dress for any reason…But if this is your gift and Lord knows it has been prosperous for you. If it is ok with you and God…do your thing. I try to see things from. Every angle and I would be wrong to judge you for portraying a woman. However my friends seem to think it is disgusting and you are just using Madea as a front for homosexuality and that everytime I buy your DVDs or go see your movies and plays that I am compromising the word of God and agreeing with homosexuality. I see a man that is confident in his sexuality who has the gift of laughter through the truths of life. I love and pray for your success. Always was and always will. Be a fan of your work. Keep it coming…

    There is nothing wrong with the way Medea do her thing there are plenty of movies that can be considered. A bad influence at least when you watch Medea movies you get the best of it all comedy tragedy hard times etc. I have went through my own personal issues but I have popped in a Tyler perry Medea movie and it got me through as long as he keep making Medea movies I will watch you can’t really say nothing bad about Medea

  98. Monique Loyd says:

    I love Madea! The only people complaining are the ones who can’t relate. If they sit down and realize the truthfulness of what she say’s they wouldn’t criticize her actions or words. I want more of her to remind of how we used to Bethe parents that trained our kids instead of allowing them to run rapid i n the streets. I alsonwantvTyler playing her, its that southern touch that only he can give..

  99. Racquel says:

    Yup exactly this fictional person is what’s wrong with America today. How awful, brings me to tears to see such things that tyler Perry movies do brain washing the world. How dare he do that. Teach children to mind their manners. Study. Help family. Have fun. Even when doing wrong shows that there are consequences. Teach people that friends and family are important. Even when they don’t agree or fight in the end love brings laughter. That people can be addicted and they struggle and never to give up. That broken hearts can be mended that a battered person who see nothing left can take the choice to make something of nothing or give in. Yup this country was not built on those values…… I prefer the way things are now. War after war. Lies after lies. Corruption. Teachers sitting behind a desk not teaching. Parents too busy to care the parents that care can’t do anything because they fear getting in-trouble. I suppose the people that write stupid reviews about a character are the same ones upset about who plays batman really I don’t care who does. Why can’t people police their own children. God help us all if people really believe that these stories to entertain are a bad influence. What they need to do is go out in the streets help the homeless volunteer and stop bothering people with stupid things.

    Please forgive my writing I am ill and I jump from one thing to another I also have the shakes and I see blurry even with glasses. I’m a 39 year old DAV but most 70 year old are healthier than I.

    On the other hand I’d like a Medea goes to jail 2. Where it picks up with Medea not the lawyer love story bit. But for the female judge to summons Medea and have her go undercover at a juveniles detention center without knowing her the judge family member is there. I think that would be fun. Enlightening. Sad. Hysterical. Emotional. Gosh and have the main jail characters help her. Well maybe. Just a thought. I wonder if tyler perry reads these comments. Hi if you do.

    Madea is an amazing character. She tells the truth about real life situations. I have much respect for her because she don’t sugar-coat the truth. If you pay attention you can really learn a lot about life from watching the character of Madea. I could literally watch Madea plays and movies all day, every day. Whenever I hear of a Madea movie or play coming out, I get super excited. Madea is hilarious and I love her character. Keep Madea coming because, she can bring good laughter to a bad day. (At least for me) MADEA ROCKS!

  101. Karen says:

    MORE Madea!! Awesome character, and very entertaining for everyone. Tyler Perry is fabulously talented, and I am so glad he shares his talent with us.

  102. Nikki says:

    I am not a fan. Sorry that character has not been seen in my black family. Too much foolishness for me.

  103. Lori says:

    We definitely need more Madea movies. She tells it like it is and takes no backtalk from people especially disrespectful kids. Tyler Perry is great at intertwining a serious message or life lesson with lots of humor. There should be more television and movies like that. Even his movies without Madea do that and they’re all great.

  104. linda lindsey says:

    I love Madea! We need humour in this mixed up world. I also enjoy the Christian values that are always there. Mr. Tyler Perry is awesome. My Grandaughter and I can’t wait to see Madea’s Christmas . My Grandaughter says I am just like Madea. LOL.

  105. Cassie says:

    If they talked about Jesus…They will talk about anyone else…Madea represents Authenticity…many times we Christian Folk or Good Folk hide behind the wall of our true character and place a blinding eye to seers. Focus on the dimension of the Madea character and less on persumed impact then you will see under the guise it is just another form of interpretation of human characteristics.

  106. What you said was actually very reasonable. But, what about this?
    suppose you were to create a killer headline?
    I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t solid., but what if you
    added something that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Madea And Her Social Influence | Fans Pages
    is a little vanilla. You should look at Yahoo’s home page
    and watch how they create news headlines to grab viewers interested.
    You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab
    people excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.
