The Netflix-released comedy centers the beloved Madea’s great-grandson’s graduation and the trouble that follows as his rambunctious family members come to town to celebrate. It also serves as a parodic tease on Beyoncé’s concert documentary, Homecoming.

Adapted from Tyler Perry’s stage production, Madea’s Farewell Play, along with Perry, the feature stars Cassi Davis-Patton, David Mann, Tamela Mann, Gabrielle Dennis, and Brendan O’Carroll.

Of course, with every anticipated debut, Twitter was on it… per usual, and the mixed reviews started rolling in.
