Totally love when I followup one of the best movies of the year with easily ONE OF THE WORST of 2017. This somehow managed to learn nothing from the god awful mistakes of its predecessor and made an almost exact identical movie, but even worse...how do you do that??!! How can Tyler Perry figure out a way to make the exact same movie twice, yet worse the second go around??? I hated the first movie and I seriously loathe this one. Everything about this movie sucks. The writing is lazy since they just rehash the first movie all over again. The story is basically the same from the first movie. Tyler Perry's daughter is a terror that does whatever she wants and has no respect for her father. She sneaks away to go to a frat party for Halloween. Madea and her gang of morons get together to try and get her back home. "Spooky" things start to happen about halfway through the movie to where the characters believe that there are ghosts and people dying. Turns out it's all just a prank to teach the daughter a lesson to not be an ungrateful brat. Roll credits. The characters are all annoying and unlikable. Madea, along with her two lady friends, are just loud and obnoxious from beginning to end. They have two modes; either they are talking about literally nothing with their terrible adlibbing skills or they're screaming at the top of their lungs like idiots and that's it. The other Tyler Perry character, Joe, has three jokes throughout the whole movie that he repeats over and over again; Madea is a dude, he likes drugs, he's a pimp. And that is all the depth we get with his character. There is nothing else he has to say other than "Madea's got a dick", "Come on now, I need to get me some drugs", "I run bitches and hoes like nobody else 'cause I'm a pimp. I pimp all you hoes, bitch." ...THAT'S IT! Tyler Perry playing...Tyler Perry...is probably the least annoying character in the whole flick, but he's still not funny. The daughter is a total nightmare, like she was exactly in the first one as if the events of the first movie never happened and she didn't learn a single lesson about how much an entitled little monster she is. The movie adds in a few new characters to the mix; Tyler Perry's ex-wife who is obviously the reason why their daughter is such a colossal monster of a human being. The daughter's new step-father...who has almost no lines and adds nothing to what's happening. And lastly, Tyler Perry's new friend, played by Tito Ortiz...who is easily the worst actor in the whole film. He has very few lines yet somehow that was too difficult for this guy to perform with. He was legitimately a terrible actor. I may have hated the other characters more than him, but at least I could say they were acting. Tito Ortiz is not an actor and I have no clue as to why he was included in here, other than to make everyone else look "good" by comparison. I didn't laugh once in this...SOMEHOW 90 MINUTE TORTURE DEVICE THEY CALL A MOVIE!!! The comedy in this movie is the same tired material that they used in the last movie and repeated for 90 minutes. An hour and a half of everyone trying so hard to improv and not landing a single funny joke in the process. Aside from the comedy being absent, the production value of this movie somehow is also bad and even worse than before. The makeup they put on Tyler Perry and Patrice Lovely to make them look like their older people is so awful this time around that I'm pretty sure they just went to a Spirit Halloween to get this done. It always looked bad to me before, but this time it's as if they're cosplayers of the characters they're supposed to be. Yet somehow this movie cost 25 million dollars to make. Not a joke or an exaggeration, this movie supposedly cost 25 million dollars to produce...I call bull. Tyler Perry pocketed every cent of that. I'm calling it right now. There is no way that this "made for television in someone's backyard" piece of crap cost more than what I have in my wallet right now. No freaking way. Oddly enough, with as cheap as this movie looks and feels, there are just such glaringly cheap moments that don't even make sense to me. Like the fact that they build these small sets and break the fourth wall by literally running through it. For instance, there's a scene where two characters are sitting in a tent where it is obvious that the production crew cut out a giant hole in order to film the two as they sit completely still at their marks. And then when someone comes up to the entrance of the tent attacking them and the characters literally run through the hole specifically made to be filmed through and not actually supposed to be there. There are also times where, instead of having an editor chop down this needlessly long and repetitive dialog containing curse words, they blatantly censor and dub over random cursing. For some reason, half the run time they're allowed to say sh*t, piss, hell, and damn but other times they aren't. And when they're not allowed to say those words they'll literally just blank out that dialog or clearly dub over it with another word like 'darn'. I don't know why, it is bizarre and jarring every time it happens. Especially since there's a scene where a character says the 'N' word and 'f*ck' in the same sentence, but in the next sentence they dub the word 'damn' with 'darn' three or four times in a row. It makes no sense. I hate this movie so much. I really do. I couldn't stand every second of this thing. Listening to all these extremely annoying characters constantly talk about random nonsense that adds nothing to the plot and isn't funny. And repeat those unfunny things again and again. Hearing them scream and yell in between those unfunny bits of dialog. Seeing zero effort being put into this thing at least on a production level. It was a truly miserable time I had watching this. It nearly broke me, I couldn't take another second and I hope to God that there isn't a third movie. Please...I can't do it...don't do this to me again. I'll do anything. I'll become a priest, just make it stop. No more.
