Movie synopsis

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.

Editorial reviews

"[With] good acting and resonant scenes....[Perry] certainly knows how to entertain and deliver laughs..."
Hollywood Reporter - Kirk Honeycutt (02/20/2009)

"MADEA GOES TO JAIL is both slapstick and social drama, and it is certainly the most confident mix of the two that Perry has managed to achieve with this particular part of his vast media franchise..."
Washington Post (02/21/2009)

"Perry writes, directs and stars -- in several roles -- and he obviously knows how to create a crowd-pleasing comedy. The bawdy character of Madea has grown more endearing over the course of three movies....She's a hoot..."
USA Today - Claudia Puig (03/03/2009)

Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail

Created: 06/08/09
Just when you think that Tyler Perry can't top his last "Madea" movie, Wham!! He does it again! This is his Best yet, I know, hard to believe, but True! You will laugh until your mouth hurts and cry a little too, (I did). There is Nothing to dislike about this latest "work of art"!From high speed chases to Anger management, to prison, Madea is "large and in charge! Everyone I have talked to about this movie loves it as much as I do!Fun for the whole family, small children excluded due to mild PG-13 content. Keep em' coming Mr. Perry! We Love Madea and want More! Hats off to the entire cast! This is one of those movies you can watch over and over and it's just as good! I'd like to see Madea take on a big city gang in true "Madea Style! Wouldn't that be hilarious?? Tyler Perry has done it again, with this movie! Buy it, rent it, but get it, you will not regret it!

Madea Goes to Jail

Created: 28/06/09
Cute............entertaining..​..........amusing.........same stuff. Not as good as any of the others. I like Tyler Perry but he must be running out of ideas. He should call me. This is the worst of the Medea series. Medea should not be laid to rest. Tyler Perry should come up with some fresh ideas And create a real down home story. This lacks any real plot or sub plot. How about no plot. Tyler Perry is funny but this movie took the fun out of FUNNY.

Madea Goes To Jail 2009

Created: 04/07/09
One of the best by Tyler Perry. I seen all movies directed by Tyler Perry they are all great. They have alot of Christian values. They are also very good for a family to watch together. They are not all about sex and trash. That is what the world has to offer now a days

I love Madea as usual,she is funny, entertaining, believable and wise. I decided to buy it because Tyler Perry movies are always funny and I don't feel like I wasted my money. The characters always remind you of someone you know or some person you are related to. I decided to buy it because his movies are the type you know you will want to see again and again,so you make them a part of your home movie library.
