Boo! A Madea Halloween-Kids’ movie review

Teenagers can be tough at times, especially the ones with an attitude. Tiffany, a 17 year old girl, is definitely a spunky one . She doesn’t listen or respect her dad, Brian (Tyler Perry). Halloween night Brian has to go out of town and he wants Tiffany to stay at her moms. Of course Tiffany objects and insists that she stay home with a friend.  Brian gives in, but calls his Aunt Madea (Tyler Perry) to stay with her. When Madea arrives she brings her friends: an aunt that smokes marijuana, her goofy brother Joe (Tyler Perry), and a woman who you can barely understand due to her speech impediment. Now the fun begins as Madea tries to handle the ghosts and goblins of Halloween, but even more challenging… a defiant teenage girl.

Talking Points:

Sexual Content: Moderate

  • The teenage girls wear low revealing shirts (showing cleavage) and crop tops. One girl wears a thong over her leggings and dances very seductively.
  • A couple of frat boys take two girls into private bedrooms, hoping for a sexual relationship, but when the boys find out the girls are 17 years old they kick them out of the party.
  • Madea shows her breasts to some frat boys (her shirt hides them from the camera) and encourages the boys to touch them.
  • There are sexual references regarding masturbation, prostitution, oral and group sex.

Violent/Disturbing Content: Moderate

  • Madea punches people in the face.
  • A body is found in the frat house and it’s throat is sliced open with blood dripping down the front.
  • There’s a creepy and scary Halloween influence throughout the film.

Crude or Profane Language: Excessive

  • We hear “sh-t,” “h–l,” “d–n, “b–ch,” and  “a–” throughout the film.

Drug and Alcohol Content: Moderate

  • Characters smoke cigarettes and marijuana at home and at parties.
  • We see teenagers drinking at a party.

Will Teens Like It?  Yes

  • The theater was filled with pre-teens and teens. They were laughing throughout the film.

Overall, Boo! A Madea Halloween is a fun and entertaining film. Having said that, parents need to be aware of the sexual content and crude humor.
