Madea jumps into action when her niece, Shirley, receives distressing news about her health. All Shirley wants is to gather her three adult children around her and share the news as a family. But Tammy, Kimberly and Byron are too distracted by their own problems: Tammy can't manage her unruly children or her broken marriage; Kimberly is gripped with anger and takes it out on her husband; and Byron, after spending two years in jail, is under pressure to deal drugs again. It's up to Madea, with the help of the equally rambunctious Aunt Bam, to gather the clan together and make things right the only way she knows how: with a lot of tough love, laughter … and the revelation of a long-buried family secret.

Let's sing the baby a nursery rhyme… "Row row row your hoe, up and down the street, merrily merrily merrily, she's just a piece of meat."
Yet another formulaic feature from Tyler Perry. You can read the
reviews from practically any of his other films or television shows for
a plot summary. It has been said that Perry's success is based on him
knowing his audience; so what does that say about them? I sat in the
theater and realized why Spike Lee commented the way he did. If I spent
20 plus years making socially relevant material, but this dreck
continues to profit, I would be angry as well. This movie was a
disaster. It made BAPS look like Malcolm X. As a Black man in America I
am thrilled to see another Black man prosper, but come on. We need more
For Colored Girls and less of this movie from him.
