Tiffany Haddish wears her white halter Alexander McQueen dress for a fifth time in this movie. She wore this dress to the premiere of Girl's Trip, during her Saturday Night Live monologue, and to host the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards. Wearing it to multiple occasions is an inside joke of Haddish's and she is breaking barriers in fashion to wear the same dress more than once.
Tiffany Haddish co-stars with her idol Whoopi Goldberg for the first time. When Tiffany watched Jumpin' Jack Flash (1986) as a young girl, she used to fantasize about having Whoopi as her mother and, ironically, this is the very relationship they both share in this film.
Chris Rock ("Lawrence"), who is good friends with Perry, is responsible for giving him the idea to make "Boo! A Madea Halloween" after poking fun at Madea in his 2014 film "Top Five".
This is Tyler Perry's first film to be distributed by Paramount Pictures/Viacom Inc.
