Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas (2013)

Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas is, naturally, a Tyler Perry movie starring his most famous character, Madea, in a Christmas story. Madea works as Santa Claus at a local department store, and gives wisdom to all who meet her. And Larry the Cable Guy. Cause why not?

It seems the basic premise is that while Madea works at the store with her best buddy, she finds out said best buddy’s daughter won’t make it home for Christmas, so the two of them head out to the country to see the daughter and teach her about family and Christmas. At least, I assume that’s the basic idea. Not totally sure if they teach her about family, but that seems like the obvious lesson for a Christmas movie, right?
