Top 10 Fun Facts

  1. Tough to fit that on the canvas chair: the film was directed, written, produced by and stars Tyler Perry.
  2. Runner-up: this is Tyler Perry's second most profitable movie, right behind Madea Goes to Jail.
  3. She's just getting warmed up: this is the fourth film in the Madea franchise.
  4. Four is the magic number: in addition to being the 4th Madea film, this is also the 4th Tyler Perry film that's not an adaptation of a play. The others were The Family that Preys, Daddy's Little Girls and Good Deeds.
  5. Dropping the "dra" from dramedy: while most of Tyler Perry's movies contain plenty of bitter and sweet, this one is a full-fledged comedy.
  6. What about Sophia? Uncle Joe mentions the oh-so-friendly Army nurses Blanche, Rose and Dorothy, which also happen to be the names of TV's The Golden Girls.
  7. Shout out to Labelle: during the film, both Madea and Barbara drop references to the hit song Lady Marmalade.
  8. If the shoe fits, change it: when the family first meets Madea, Denise Richards is wearing black heels. Next we see Richards upstairs packing, wearing brown boots.
  9. Whoopi alert! In one scene, Joe and the kids are watching Whoopi as psychic Oda Mae Brown in Ghost.
  10. From Big Apple to Big Peach: although the movie is set in Manhattan, it was filmed mostly in Atlanta, Georgia.
