From IMDb: “A joyous family reunion becomes a hilarious nightmare as Madea and the crew travel to backwoods Georgia, where they find themselves unexpectedly planning a funeral that might unveil unsavory family secrets.”

Poster Rating: C+ / C / C+

Review: (#1) Madea behind a veil is something both terrifying and compelling. It works for what it is. (#2) While this poster seems to be trying very hard to get humor and drollness to the viewer, the whole is generally unappealing.

(#3) This poster doesn’t have a lot of interesting colors, but it nevertheless has a solid balance and conveys the irreverence of the material.

Trailer Rating: C+ / C+

Review: (#1) If you’ve seen any of the Madea films, then you know precisely what you’re getting into with a trailer like this: preachy comedy that’s sometimes funny and sometimes leaden.

(#2) There are some more humorous elements to this trailer than the past, but the same feeling of familiarity and dullness persists making this look like a film for the fans only.
