Peppermint, Madea Family Funeral, Wonder Park and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

View Chris Kavan's Profile

By Chris Kavan - 06/13/18 at 09:19 AM CT

The Ratings Board is getting back into their regular groove - a few decent ratings here and there, that ole one-two (or in this case three) punch. For this week we have Jennifer Garner getting back into her kick-ass roots, Tyler Perry with the Madea gift that keeps on giving and a far-future animated film about a park... a wonder park. So, yay, I guess - as long as I have something to talk about, I can't complain too much.

Actors (and actresses) go through plenty of phases - some start off as comedians then get serious. Others go from action to drama to romance. But who says you can't come home again? Jennifer Garner had other credits under her belt, but really came into her own when she starred in J.J. Abrams action-spy-drama Alias. She also kicked all kinds of ass. Since that 2001 she has starred in comedies, romance, drama - but, surprisingly, nothing that captured that Alias spirit. Nothing that is, until Peppermint. Garner plays Riley, a wife and mother who witnesses a brutal crime at a carnival that takes the life of her family. She goes from widow to vigilante, taking revenge on the gang members who destroyed her life. It's like a female John Wick (or at least Death Wish) and if Garner can channel Sydney Bristow once more, well, I don't see why this won't be a grand time. Rated R for strong violence and language throughout.

Tyler Perry has made a cottage industry out of his Madea character, and he's still going strong with Tyler Perry's A Madea Family Funeral. The joyous reunion for our clan turns into a nightmare when a sudden death forces the clan to backwoods Georgia where some unsavory secrets come to light. At least we know Madea isn't going to be the one to kick the bucket, otherwise I'm sure the film will follow the tried-and-true Madea formula. It's worked out well for Perry so far - even as I have no desire to see any of the Madea films myself - but they have a large following, enough that even though the film moved from 2018 to 2019, I'm sure he has at least three more films planned for the near future. Rated PG-13 for crude sexual content, language, and drug references throughout.

Finally we have the upcoming animated film Wonder Park (which also stars Jennifer Garner - or at least her voice). The story follows June (Sofia Mali / Brianna Denski) an imaginative young girl who finds a hidden theme park full of wild rides and talking animals smack dab in the middle of the forest. The park is in disarray, however, and she soon learns that the whole thing come from her own vivid mind and the only way to fix things is to believe in the wonder again. This seems like one destined for the younger set - maybe I'm wrong but I'm not getting that adult vibe this time around. Besides Garner, the film also features the voices of Kenan Thompson, Mila Kunis, John Oliver, Ken Jeong, Matthew Broderick and Ken Hudson Campbell. The cuteness doesn't hit until 2019 and it's rated PG for some mild thematic elements and action.
