The no-nonsense Madea returns (as does Uncle Joe) for Tyler Pery’s latest flick, in which Madea (Perry) comes to the aid of her seriously ill niece (Loretta Devine), who’s hoping to reunite her estranged family. Rapper-actor Shad “Bow Wow” Moss plays Devine’s ex-con son, Byron, who gets some tough-love treatment from the titular badass. “I do have scenes with Madea where she’s getting on me,” says Moss. “You’ll definitely see me and Tyler going back and forth.” —Tanner Stransky
