TYLER PERRY’S BOO 2! A MADEA HALLOWEEN
Tyler Perry’s Halloween comedy takes an hour to get to the scares and stumbles about in scenes that all feel too long. The surly grandma Madea and her whole family (many of whom, including Madea, are played by Perry) must travel to a haunted campground to rescue the clan’s youngest member, the teenage Tiffany (Diamond White). This leads to some uproarious scenes in which the family reacts to creepy kids and chainsaw killers, but the movie could have used more of these moments. Perry is a wonderful actor and (usually) a solid writer, but he’s a lousy director — many sitcoms are more cinematically staged than this movie. Rated PG-13. Regal Stadium 14.
