Halfway through “A Madea Homecoming by Tyler Perry,” there’s a gag that captures the humor of Perry’s multimedia Madea franchise. Perry breaks the plot for a black-and-white flashback where her angry, unfiltered titular matriarch recounts how she started the civil rights movement by threatening her man’s mistress, Rosa Parks, who later took refuge on a Montgomery bus . As proof, Madea holds up a photo she took at the time on her smartphone. “My aPhone,” she says, “because they didn’t have an iPhone back then—it was A before me.” It’s shameless, irreverent nonsense – but it should be laughable, so why not? Perry, who claimed he would be retiring his signature character after 2019 “A Madea Family Funeral”, resurrected Madea, it seems, in the same spirit: simply because he can.

In this episode, Madea hosts her great-grandson’s (Brandon Black) college graduation party. The event is actually a pretext for a dozen family members to break their chops; laugh when Mr. Brown (David Mann) sets himself on fire. It also gives Madea an audience to express her conflicting feelings about the Black Lives Matter movement: She’s annoyed that her granddaughter Ellie (Candace Maxwell) has become a police officer, threatening Madea’s weed stash, but she is also irritated that protesters might burn down her corner liquor store.

The script has twists and turns, so hey, they make the soap operas look loose. Perry even worked in a visit from his transvestite counterpart across the pond, Irish comic actor Brendan O’Carroll, who plays bosomy Agnes Brown in the Irish sitcom “Mrs. Brown’s Boys. So as the film cuts to a sloppy resolution, you might miss Perry’s one good speech about love – “Stop building them walls and build yourself fences” – which can’t outweigh half a dozen speeches He is apparently in a hurry to get to the end credits sequence, where he changes into shorts and a blonde wig to ridicule the 2019 Beyoncé concert film. “Back home.” Is there a reason this is happening? Probably just because he can.
