Contrived, sentimental, tonally bipolar, and as predictable as clockwork, this latest from chitlin' circuit impresario Tyler Perry is just a fat slab of ecstatic entertainment. Tyler's irascible drag character Madea discovers two homeless boys and their glowering teenage sister (Hope Olaide Wilson) burglarizing her home. After feeding them, she dumps them on the doorstep of their selfish, hard-living aunt (Taraji P. Henson), who's shacked up with a married sleazeball (Brian J. White) but also playing reluctant landlady to a hunky, church-going Hispanic handyman (Adam Rodriguez). The superb cast sells the hell out of their broadly drawn characters. I laughed, I cried, I picked my jaw off the floor after Mary J. Blige's stunning performance of the film's killer title track.
