Tyler Perry’s A Madea Homecoming SEX/NUDITY 5

 – A character pushes her bosom up to her chin with her hands and another lifts her skirt to her chin to show her “knickers” (her body from the waist down is below the frame); she says her groin area probably looks like a busted mattress. A character lifts her skirt to her chin and we see long shorts. A character wearing short-shorts and a sweatshirt sings “Drunk on Love ” and writhes and shimmies; she later twerks in profile.
 A character says that she was once a stripper who danced on a wooden pole to make a living for her young children, and suffered many thigh splinters. A man makes many sexual and suggestive remarks throughout the movie, a woman’s ringtone plays sexual and suggestive terms several times, and a woman makes many sexual and suggestive remarks throughout the movie. A college-aged man comes out as gay to his family, that all say they already knew and are fine with it. A man reveals to his roommate that he has been dating the second man’s mother and the two men argue.
 After a man catches fire, we see that part of his buttock shows through a hole burned in his pants (please see the Violence/Gore category for more details). A woman has a slit across the bodice of her dress that reveals cleavage in several scenes. Several women tell another woman that she is pretty and she slaps her own buttocks and smiles. During the end credits, several women wear long sleeved leotards.

 – A man pours a can of lighter fluid and some gasoline on a BBQ grill and it explodes in flames, catching his back on fire; he screams and runs until another man trips him and spits on him (we do not see spit) and the flames go out, but he smolders as a small tree catches fire and burns down (we see that part of his buttock shows through a hole burned in his pants). A man wearing a sheet as a cape stands on a roof and jumps, thinking he is a superhero (please see the Substance Use category for more details); he falls off-screen with a loud thud, but looks fine in the next scene.

 A woman fires a handgun into the ceiling when a male family member touches her, and others scream and duck; one man stands, clutches his buttocks (implying defecation that we do not see) and stumbles out of the room. In a flashback to 1955, a woman trashes an NAACP office by ripping up posters, overturning shelves, and shouting at people, she leaves, pulls a handgun, and briefly holds Rosa Parks hostage on a bus. A woman picks up another woman by the collar and drops her with a thud, without injuries shown. A woman pulls out a shotgun and a man leaves.
 An extended argument among many people occurs when an Irish woman says “knickers” and Black people hear a derogatory term. There are many scenes of people arguing and cursing at one another.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
