  • Owen Gleiberman

    Madea is still a witty character, but the gutter wisdom of her tossed-off verbal hand grenades can’t shock us anymore; even the outtakes that play through the closing credits feel like reruns.

  • Laremy Legel

    One terrible sub-plot away from being a legitimately good movie. Full Review
  • Kerry Lengel

    A Madea Christmas, for all its narrative shortcomings, also has plenty of laughs.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    The funniest Madea film in a fair stretch... It's also, of course, not good by any definition.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    By the standards of Tyler Perry’s Madea series, A Madea Christmas is better than average.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Louis Black

    Rather than rising above the fray, Madea is very much the fray itself.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Nicolas Rapold

    With a character who can essentially say and do whatever she wants, you might expect a bit more.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Comedy characters change and grow. Sometimes, as we see in Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas, they become so much like old relatives that their edge is gone.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    Slapdash, with dialogue and plot points that were cliches in Dickens' era, the pic sends up, then reaffirms, all the values the media sell us each holiday: compassion, forgiveness, tolerance.

  • Sheila O'Malley

    When Madea is onscreen, at least you know what universe you are in, and there is something interesting and insane to watch. Otherwise, you are thrust into an abyss of meaninglessness and plot-heavy maneuvering overlaid with Christian propaganda that wears out its welcome with the first line of exposition. Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    It’s a Christmas nightmare, stuck with two obnoxious relatives who think they’re funny, and won’t shut up.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Mark Olsen

    Perry can now knock these films out in his sleep, and with “Madea Christmas” he certainly seems to be dozing at the wheel.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    An exceptionally poor piece of holiday cash-in product, rushed and ungainly even by the low standard set by Perry's seven previous Madea films, yet it should be every bit as profitable.

    Variety Full Review
  • Sean O’Connell

    An insensitive, unfunny cringer from the entrepreneurial writer-director that should have come with a gift receipt.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    A lump of cinematic coal Perry’s shoving into America’s stockings this holiday season.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Matt Patches

    The film is a string of dawdling sitcom scenarios and saccharine messages, cobbled together with star wipes pulled straight out of a Walmart commercial.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Frank Scheck

    The clunky narrative doesn’t ring true for a second, and the hackneyed dialogue is even worse.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    This eighth Madea movie is pretty lame even by Perry’s slapdash standards.

    Time Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    I don’t know, maybe it worked as theater. Onscreen, it’s torture.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    A Madea Christmas belongs to a rancid strain of Yuletide trifles that feature awful people being terrible to each other for 90 minutes under the sway of insulting plot contrivances before the awfulness is climactically washed away in an avalanche of holiday sentimentality.
