Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail (DVD, 2009, Widescreen)

Tyler Perry, Derek Luke, Keshia Knight Pulliam|Theatrical release: 2009 | Rating: PG-13 (MPAA)

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)

Madea Goes To Jail is a must have for dvd collection

Created: 26/07/09
After a high-speed car chase, Madea (Tyler Perry) winds up behind bars because her quick temper gets the best of her. Meanwhile, Assistant District Attorney Josh Hardaway (Derek Luke) lands a case that's too personal to handle: that of a young prostitute and former drug addict named Candace (Keshia Knight Pulliam). When Candace winds up in jail, Madea takes the young woman under her protective wing.

DVD Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail

Created: 17/03/10
When a routine speeding incident turns into a full-blown highway situation, Madea mouths off to a cop and lands herself in jail, where she's suddenly trapped behind bars with more motherly instinct than she knows what to do with. But Madea's nurturing side comes in handy when she crosses paths with a recovering drug addict turned prostitute who needs all the love she can get.

Tyler Perry, Vanessa Ferlito, Keshia Knight Pulliam

Madea Goes To Jail DVD

Created: 19/11/09
I personally have every single Tyler Perry Plays and Movies that has been out so far. If your a fan of Tyler Perry then your a fan of Madea and get to know the Madea character is like... the grandma who is blunt don't put up with nothing lets say old school had a hard life,kind of like big mamma.Except she is like 6'5" with a attitude. This is so funny and the play before it which inspired this movie to be made. I decided to buy this movie due to needing it in my collection and just loving it because of the reality of it and the comedy of it. It teaches life lessons and maybe for a few to understand people better in this world. This is a wonderful buy and I highly reccommend buying it you have to watch it to understand what I'm saying and I know you'll enjoy it.

Tyler Perry did it again!!

Created: 24/06/09
I LOVE Tyler Perry's movies. He always has such a good message in each movie while keeping me entertained and making me laugh. This movie starts out following two attorneys that are engaged and work together. One attorney ends up bumping into an old friend that he knew in school. His friend has been dealt a pretty rotten hand in life and ends up in pretty desperate circumstances. Instead of passing judgment on his friend, he listens to her and offers understanding, even when she is angry and untrusting. An excellent movie with an excellent story and message. As always, Madea made me laugh until my stomach hurt. Thank you Mr. Perry for another excellent movie.
