QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: Madea and her cronies must babysit her teenage niece on Halloween, as the girl schemes to sneak out and attend a local college party.
PLOT:
Brian (TYLER PERRY), a recently divorced father, is having a hard time parenting his headstrong teenage daughter, Tiffany (DIAMOND WHITE), who has plans to sneak out to attend a Halloween bash at the local fraternity house. Temptations are everywhere for her, including the cute and charming frat president Jonathan (YOUSEF ERAKAT) and her party-hearty friends Rain (BELLE THORNE) and Leah (LEXY PANTERRA). Only good-girl bestie Aday (LIZA KOSHY) seems to have any second thoughts about attending such a raucous college party.

When Brian is called into work, he phones his feisty, domineering Aunt Madea (also PERRY) to come and babysit Tiffany and Aday and make sure they don't leave. Madea brings along Brian's profane father, Joe (also PERRY); her pot-smoking neighbor, Bam (CASSI DAVIS); and their almost unintelligible friend, Hattie (PATRICE LOVELY).

Tiffany, though, still manages to escape and Madea and her cronies go after her to the frat house. When Madea is physically tossed out of the house, she retaliates by calling the police. The fraternity responds by mounting a series of horror movie-like pranks that up the stakes beyond anything they could have expected.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Older teens may have some interest, especially if they're fans of Perry's Madea films.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For drug use and references, suggestive content, language, some horror images, and thematic material.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
