Boo! A Madea Halloween

Tiffany (Diamond White), the spoiled princess heroine of “Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween,” is 17 years old, which means that she must Money Monster have been around five when Perry’s first movie came out. It’s a sign of how the world has evolved since then that “Boo!” opens with a sequence set in a mostly white fraternity, Upsilon Theta, on the day of its annual Halloween bash. Tiffany, trying to win the approval of her two older (white) friends, will wind up sneaking out of her house, joining the party, and narrowly avoid being pounced on by Jonathan (Yousef Erakat), the frat president who looks like a geek Vin Diesel. But there isn’t a moment in any of this that involves so much as a buried hint of racial awareness. Zoolander 2 (Unless, of course, you count the fact that half of the film’s frat boys talk like “gangstas.”) It’s simply a non-issue. And that, you might say, is progress.

Of course, this being a Tyler Perry movie, it’s also set in a place where things haven’t evolved at all, and that’s the one occupied by Tiffany’s great-aunt, Madea, that old-school badass frump hellion who never gets old. It has something to do with her rage, and with how quickly she talks: Perry, done up in pearls and a dress of crimson paisley large enough to house a refrigerator, plays Madea, as always, by tearing through his lines as if the character’s very existence depended on her beating everyone to the punchline. No one speaks as Devil’s Gate fast as Madea: not her relatives, not the innocents she browbeats into submission, not the dreaded popo. She may look like a stodgy Church Lady, but she’s a bawdy homespun terrorist with the street in her blood — in “Boo!,” she’s always referencing her younger life “on the pole” — and she’s not ashamed of anything she’s done.
