Dove Review

Madea is back for Halloween. Madea and friends go to Brian’s house to make sure his daughter and her friend don’t leave the house to go to a Halloween frat party. The girls are only 17, and Brian thinks the old people will be able to keep them home.

Tiffany tries to pull one over on Madea, Bam, Hattie and Joe—so the girls can sneak out—when she tells them that the house is haunted. But she can’t pull one over on Madea, who discovers the girls are gone. Madea, Bam and Hattie head off to the frat house where the hilarious team of women look for the girls—and at the same time get a look at the younger generation in a different light. Madea is having no part of this, and when she cuts the music, the frat boys toss her in the bushes and the pranking begins between the older and younger generations. Who will win?
