Consensus: Tyler Perry's Madea's Family Reunion is sincere in its positive intentions, but leaves something to be desired as a film.

Nothing that happens seems the least bit believable, and everything is brash and loud. All that's missing is the laugh track.

Perry's vaudevillian shamelessness and indifference to committee-approved taste are energizing and frequently jaw-dropping.

Tyler Perry's heart is in the right place, but he still has a tin ear.

Though Perry's films are hard to defend on aesthetic grounds -- the crazy shifts in tone from operatic melodrama to broad comedy could cause seizures -- it's equally hard to begrudge the underserved audiences who embrace them so passionately.

All the while Madea's wit, which is refreshing on the stage, feels spurious and often misfires.
