    ITEM#: 12009311

    Multitalented screenwriter, director, playwright, and actor Tyler Perry delivers yet another comedy feature from his popular MADEA film series. Largely concerned with African American family life, Perry splits his efforts between the outrageous Madea films and other, slightly more serious features such as 2008’s THE FAMILY THAT PREYS. As the name suggests, MADEA GOES TO JAIL, based on the 2006 play of the same title, once again stars Perry himself as Mabel B. Simmons (nicknamed Madea), the feisty, gun-loving grandmother audiences have adored on stage and screen since she first appeared in the 2002 play MADEA’S FAMILY REUNION. When Madea ends up in jail following a series of violent outbursts, she finds herself in equally eccentric company and causes chaos among her fellow inmates. In a fat suit and women’s clothing, Perry keeps things light while exploring signature themes of redemption, such as the young attorney (Derek Luke, NOTORIOUS) who sets out to help a prostitute (Keshia Knight Pulliam, THE COSBY SHOW) who holds a special place in his heart. The New Orleans-born Renaissance man once again proves himself to be comfortable wearing many hats: as star, producer, writer, and director, Perry retains a constant presence but is careful not to outshine his talented co-stars, including Viola Davis (Oscar-nominated for her role in 2008’s DOUBT) as a determined social worker. Rivaling Woody Allen with the speed at which he releases films, Perry manages to pack Christian values, positive messages regarding the power of forgiveness, and plenty of laughs into his quickly produced features. This is all communicated through his signature blend of outrageous comedy and almost soap-operatic drama.

    • Madea

      This movie was the best one Tyler Perry has brought to theaters. Madea is his best personna yet and Madea delivers the most hilarious performance yet. She goes to court in the beginning of the movie, gets off because the police forgot to read her, her rights but she has to go to anger management. She ends up in jail because she fork lifted a woman's car and dropped it. When Madea was on the screen, there was not a moment when you were not laughing.

    • I loved it

      Madea goes to jail was a good movie, I like all of the parts especially when Madea goes to jail and get into arguments with her cellmates. There really is no parts I did not like and I think Keisha Knight Pulliam played her role very well, Madea goes to jail was very funny but of course all of Tyler Perry movies and plays are great. I think the part with Madea and Dr. Phil was very funny also and the entire movies kept me laughing because it was hilarious with a cast of great actors and actresses. I liked the fact that real judges was used in the movie.

    • Madea Does It again

      This movie was truly laugh out loud funny. Madea delivers a bunch of one liners that are priceless. When she finds out she'll have to go to jail for real this time the comedy begins. She takes over the prison and even though she's the oldest she's definitely the baddest. Keisha Knight Pulliam delivers a great performance, shes no longer a little girl. She's strung out and a bad girl, and she makes it believable. You feel for her and Derek Luke is the perfect rescuer, and i feel in love with him. Madea definitely keeps you in stitches, while Tyler Perry's movie have the same basic theme the laughs keep you entertained. Buy and add to the collection you laugh all weekend.
