Editorial Reviews

At long last; Madea returns to the big screen in TYLER PERRY'S MADEA GOES TO JAIL. This time America's favorite irreverent; pistol-packin' grandmomma is raising hell behind bars and lobbying for her freedom...Hallelujer! 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 TAMALA 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 (KEISHA KNIGHT PULLIAM) - and asks his fiance and fellow ADA 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.

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.

"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!

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.

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!!!

Most of Tyler Perry's movies have left me wanting... wanting a better script, better dialogue and better acting. Many of his previous movies are exaggerated and stereo-typical, but Madea Goes To Jail is different. The acting is so much better than in many of his previous films (who knew the former Cosby kid had so much talent???) and the Madea character is funnier than ever. This is by far, the best movie Tyler Perry has ever done -- he's getting better and learning his craft as a producer and director and casting better actors in his films. I found myself crying over funny parts of the movie and over sad parts.

A great family or date movie!

Maybe he doesnt see the point? I mean, they're not big action flicks, so they dont need the upped quality.
