Consensus: Boo! A Madea Halloween won't win Tyler Perry's long-running franchise many new converts -- but at nine films and counting, it hardly needs to.

Craig D. Lindsey
L.A. Weekly

Boo! is certainly the most watchable Madea movie I've seen in a long time, even though I get the feeling Perry still doesn't know how to direct for the screen.

This comedy is unlikely to win over any new fans, but the devoted will find comfort in the familiarity.

The best of all the Madea films.

Madea remains a distinctive, weirdly compelling character. Maybe someday Perry will make a good comedy for her.

At 103 minutes, this film has way too much dead weight. Scenes are repeated over and over, and some of the acting would not cut it in a school play.

No matter how many films Perry writes, directs, produces, and stars in, he's not especially interested in getting better at it.

Mr. Perry is ... an eccentric, inspired performer, and his screen-filling antics as the raucous but righteous Madea - a character who runs through Mr. Perry's stage, film and TV work - is the truly pertinent component here.

Detroit News

"A Madea Halloween" is rare for Perry in that it's one of only two "Madea" films not adapted from a stage play, but it sure feels like one, with several scenes ... feeling like a one-act, one-room play that goes on and on and on.

Instead of running full force with the conceit, Perry's own directorial limitations hinder the finished product.
