4. FILM: Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas

America’s favorite drag star, Ru — er, Tyler Perry, reprises his role as a sassy grandmother in A Madea Christmas, the first film of the Madea franchise to center on the holidays. It also marks the first time Anna Maria Horsford, Larry the Cable Guy, Chad Michael Murray, Kathy Najimy, and Sweet Brown have ever been cast together in one film, and this one follows the exploits of Madea as she visits family in rural America. This ensemble, combined with generally awful reviews from critics, may portend some Christmas magic for those seeking a campy romp through the yuletide season. Watch the trailer below. — Daniel Reynolds
