Editorial Reviews

After a high-speed freeway chase puts Madea (TYLER PERRY) in front of the judge, her reprieve is short-lived as anger management issues get the best of her and land her in jail. A gleeful Joe (TYLER PERRY) couldn't be happier at Madea's misfortune. But Madea's eccentric family members, the Browns (DAVID and TAMELA MANN), rally behind her, lending their special "country" brand of support. Meanwhile, Assistant District Attorney Joshua Hardaway (DEREK LUKE) is on the fast track to career success. But Hardaway lands a case too personal to handle – defending young prostitute and former drug addict Candace Washington (KESHIA KNIGHT PULLIAM) – and asks his fiancée and fellow Assistant District Attorney Linda Holmes (ION OVERMAN) to fill in on his behalf. When Candace ends up in jail, Madea befriends the young woman, protecting her in a "motherly" way as only Madea can.

5.0 out of 5 stars PERRY SCORES AGAIN WITH MADEA July 16, 2009
Format:DVD
MADEA GOES TO JAIL

I am a Tyler Perry fan and was completely excited when I found out that this film was going to be his next, based on the great play I knew it would be a great film. So it came to theaters and like I thought it was a hit so I knew the DVD would be excellent. Finally when it came out it was bought for my girl for her birthday and we all had a great time watching it. Perry is excellent at delivering heartfelt films with a bit of comedy thrown into the mix. Like before he succeeds here once again and delivers another marvelous film. Perry once again provides a well crafted drama/comedy that will have you hooked for sure.

There are two different stories going on in this film like most Perry films, this like the others blends both stories very well and even brings them together. One follows Madea and her legal battles as she escapes prisons grasp only to fall prey to it later. This is the comedic side of the film as you know and really makes this movie funny. Then we have Joshua Hardaway an Assistant District Attorney who just landed a case that puts him back in touch with a former childhood friend who he elects to help. Since he didn't help at one time when she really needed it in their college days he feels the need now. Of course this does not sit well with his fiancé who has a bit of a secret her self. Of course this is the more dramatic side of things and it is classic Tyler Perry, excellent story with these ones.

Perry has always been an excellent writer and this shows exactly why he keeps churning out hit after hit. The script is full of great believable characters and full of emotion which only brings you into it. Of course his direction is great and keeps the movie moving along at a nice pace.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Tyler Perry's Madea Goes To Jail" is great! May 26, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
"Tyler Perry's Madea Goes To Jail" is great! This is how the story goes: After a high-speed freeway chase puts Madea in front of the judge, her reprieve is short-lived as anger management issues get the best of her and land her in jail. A gleeful Joe couldn't be happier at Madea's misfortune. But Madea's eccentric family members the Browns rally behind her, lending their special "country" brand of support. Meanwhile, Assistant District Attorney Joshua Hardaway is on the fast track to career success. But Hardaway lands a case too personal to handle - defending young prostitute and former drug addict Candace Washington - and asks his fiancee and fellow ADA Linda Holmes to fill in on his behalf. When Candace ends up in jail, Madea befriends the young woman, protecting her in a "motherly" way as only Madea can.

The cast led by Tyler Perry (back in his roles as Madea / Brian / Joe), Derek Luke (as Joshua Hardaway), & Keshia Knight Pulliam (as Candace Washington) is great! The directing and story and screenplay by Perry (who also produced) (who also produced and directed and wrote the stories and screenplays to "Madea's Family Reunion" (2006, also starred as Madea / Brian / Joe), "Daddy's Little Girls" (2007), "Why Did I Get Married?" (2007, also starred as Terry), "Meet The Browns" (2008, also starred as Madea / Joe) & "The Family That Preys" (2008, also starred as Ben), he also wrote and produced "Diary Of A Mad Black Woman" (2005, also starred as Madea / Brian / Joe) is great!

The music by Aaron Zigman (who also did the music to Perry's "Why Did I Get Married?", "Meet The Browns", & "The Family That Preys" is great! The cinematography by Alexander Gruszynski (who also did the cinematography to "This Christmas" (2007) is great!

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Tyler Perry June 19, 2009
Format:DVD
The antics of Madea in and out of jail are ALWAYS fun to watch, but the story about Candy and her meeting Madea gave this movie the seriousness it needed to be solid. We're given comedy and something to think about. And Madea does delightfully in jail, whether she's in class or fighting that big blonde. 4.5/5 stars for a entertaining flick.

When you hear that Tyler Perry is debuting a new movie featuring the character of Madea, you become like a thirsty man in the desert who spots an oasis in the distance. You know that if you can just get there, you will be so refreshed with laughter. There is a hilarity that infuses your senses that you don't want to let go when Madea is breakin it down and servin it up as only she can....And the life stories that accompany this trip do give us food for thought...Thank you Tyler Perry!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The very best of Tyler Perry June 8, 2009
Format:DVD
This is a great movie. It is, by far, my favorite Tyler Perry movie to date. It's laugh out loud funny and the actors are fantastic. I've seen all of Tyler Perry's plays and movies. He's exceptionally talented and I love all of his work but I'm a bigger fan of his movies rather than his plays. I believe that's where the division of the reviews will lie. If you're a bigger fan of his plays, you may not agree with my review.

...but not this one. Was expecting something along the lines of 'Ernest Goes To Jail', that is to say, not high expectations, just some laughs here and there. Turns out this is the worst movie I ever sat through... not only do I want my money back, but I feel like I'm entitled to damages. Can't imagine who would enjoy this movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not enough Madea.
While it was an okay movie, we were expecting the same laugh after laugh as in Madea's Witness Protection. It was definitely not as funny, and even a bit sad at times.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as funny as Witness Protection
This was an okay Madea film. As always there is a good moral to the story, but Madea's Witness protection is hilarious! I like it a lot better than this film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good as always
First, I gave this 4 stars because it was funny but not quite as funny as the other Madea's films. I enjoyed it but was a bit disappointing. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Very funny
Another funny situation for Tyler Perry's character Madea is side busting funny. However, I don't think Jail situations are worth experiencing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another funny movie from Tyler Perry
Enjoyed this movie and the story line and plot was very good. I thought the romance of the couple was over-simplified somewhat at the end - but it had a very good theme and idea.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the first
The story drifted to much away from Madea but none the less had a good plot. I enjoyed a fraction of the movie

why no bluray for this
Maybe he doesnt see the point? I mean, they're not big action flicks, so they dont need the upped quality.
