A MADEA CHRISTMAS
It’s time to find out what shenanigans Madea gets herself into this time. From the looks of it, she’s giving the kids a Santa they’ll never forget. Check out Tyler Perry’s latest installment, which is in theaters now.
This movie version of the Langston Hughes classic features a star-studded cast that includes Jennifer Hudson, Angela Bassett and Forrest Whitaker. And checkout newcomer Jacob Latimore as he makes his film debut. He plays a teen from Baltimore who travels to New York to visit family for the holidays for an unforgettable experience.
When the Whitfield family comes together for Christmas for the first time in four years, the drama joins the reunion, too. Can the gang patch up their issues before Christmas day arrives? Produced by Will Packer, this film stars some of our favorite actors like Idris Elba, Loretta Devine and Columbus Short.
FRIDAY AFTER NEXT
Part three of the Friday series puts an interesting twist on the holiday cheer. Craig (Ice Cube) and Day-Day (Mike Epps) have finally moved into their own place. Just when they think they’re making some progress, a Santa poser breaks into their home and steals all of their Christmas presents. The duo then have to spend their Christmas Eve tracking down the thief.
THE PERFECT HOLIDAY
In this family-friendly pick, a little girl just wants the best for her mommy. She asks a department store Santa to help her divorced mom (played by Gabrielle Union) find a new husband. Little does she know, her wish comes true, but it brings on a slew of new issues.
THE PREACHER’S WIFE
Reverend Henry Biggs (Courtney B. Vance) asks God for some help when his church is threatened to be taken away and his marriage faces some issues. God answers his prayers and sends down an angel (Denzel Washington). But the helper seems to be causing a little more trouble than expected.
When Georgia Byrd (Queen Latifah), a department store saleswoman, thinks she has a rare brain condition, she lives out all of her wildest dreams. Y.O.L.O.?
FAT ALBERT CHRISTMAS SPECIAL
Remember this one? The gang gets together at the clubhouse to rehearse for their Christmas play when in walks a helpless man with his son and pregnant wife. But it takes some convincing to get the grumpy old clubhouse owner, Tyrone, to let the family stay.
A DIVA’S CHRISTMAS CAROL
This holiday favorite puts a spin on the original A Christmas Carol story. When a snooty and uptight pop singer receives a visit from three spirits, she suddenly has the urge to change her attitude.
THE BEST MAN HOLIDAY
It’s been more than a decade, and the wait is finally over! When the entire gang reunites for the holidays for the first time since Mia (Monica Calhoun) and Lance’s (Morris Chestnut) wedding, the past quickly makes a comeback.
