Lynn Whitfield, Madea's Family Reunion

Of all the questionable decisions women have made in Tyler Perry films, the one that gives us the biggest case of side-eye is Whitfield's out-of-touch mother whose actions--she let one daughter be sexually abused by her father and the other be physically abused by her fiancé--frequently made us cringe.
