Tyler Perry's: A Madea Christmas

Posted: Updated:

Madea is back. This time she's holly. We're not sure she's jolly but she's funnier than ever.

It's a Merry Madea Christmas. Tyler Perry, the man behind the woman was in SoFlo today and told Deco Drive about "Tyler Perry's: A Madea Christmas."

TYLER PERRY: "Madea goes down to a small town in deep deep deep south to set this whole town straight about the meaning of Christmas as only Madea can."

So what's the meaning of Christmas to Madea?

TYLER PERRY: "Its time to get things off of layaway - no. Christmas to Madea it's a little different. It is a time for family but its also a time for setting family straight."

In Madea's Christmas, she starts out a working in a department store during the holidays.

Crowds and kids sounds like Madea's worst nightmare.

She ends up on the road trip to a small town in Alabama to surprise her niece's daughter for Christmas. I think I'd rather have coal in my stocking then a surprise Madea visit.

TYLER PERRY: "I think she gets into trouble because she's Madea. She's not politically correct. She doesn't say it to. She doesn't worry about what is on her mind she just says it like most grandmothers did back in the day."

Madea is a laugh riot, but add some of Hollywood's funniest and hold on to your santa hats.

TYLER PERRY: "It's a lot of fun. Larry the cable guy, Kathy Najimy I and myself together in scenes -- hysterical."

We've seen Madea in a lot of situations. We wanted to know where'd she come from?

TYLER PERRY: "She is a cross between my mother and my aunt. I promise you she is the nice version of those women."

Ouch....I hope mom Perry was OK with that.

TYLER PERRY: "She'd always say she didn't say that right and I was like...i cant say that in a PG movie.'

We've got something that is very PG That Madea wants everyone to know.

TYLER PERRY: "Merry Christmas."

    I'll never forget the first time I met Jordana Green. She was beautiful and not just on the outside. She was standing across the newsroom with a big smile on her face. The first word that popped into my mind was "gamine."

    Even though Donna Karan's eyes were bright and clear, they were aggressively smudged with dark black eye-liner: a signature look she's worn for years. Unfortunately, the make-up prevented me from getting a good read on her.

    "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is weaving its way into theaters in just a few weeks, but before it does, the cast is doing a cross-country Spidey tour to tell you why you should see the movie. Today, the stars of the flick, Andrew, Emma and Dane, were hanging out in Downtown Miami at the Mandarin Oriental. I caught up with them to talk all things arachnophobia.
