Product Description

For years; George Needleman (Levy); the gentle CFO of a Wall Street investment bank; has been living with his head in the clouds. His frustrated second wife; Kate (Richards); has reached her limit taking care of his senile mother; Barbara (Roberts). His teenage daughter; Cindy (Danielle Campbell); is spoiled beyond hope and his seven-year-old son; Howie (Devan Leos); wishes his father were around more. But George is finally forced to wake up when he learns that his firm; Lockwise Industries; has been operating a mob-backed Ponzi scheme -- and that he's been set up as the fall guy. Facing criminal charges and death threats from the mob; George and his entire family are put under witness protection in the safest place that Brian (Perry); a federal prosecutor from Atlanta; can think of. His Aunt Madea's house down South. As a result; Madea and her live-in brother; Uncle Joe (Perry); find themselves managing a completely dysfunctional family from Connecticut. But as George tries to solve the mystery behind Lockwise's finances; Madea whips the Needlemans into shape using her hilarious brand of tough love. And together; they realize they just might have what it takes to unite George's family; outsmart the mob and change everyone's lives for the better.

Imagine being in such a tough spot that you need Madea to help keep you safe. That's the simple but hilarious premise behind Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection, a straight-up slapstick hit with a sweet message underlying the shtick. Tyler Perry plays Madea, of course, as well as several other parts. The always-hilarious Eugene Levy plays the hapless George Needleman, a schlub of a businessman who's been sucked into laundering money for a low-level mob family. When he realizes his predicament, he is sent to hide out with Madea. Of course complications ensue, and Madea's called upon to help George's family--so while he is hiding out, Madea also goes "under cover" as a Manhattan socialite, trying to follow some of the laundered money that should have gone to charity. Perry's ensemble cast keeps things moving at a hilarious pace, and fans of the Madea franchise will love Witness Protection. The supporting cast is splendid, including Tom Arnold, who has a memorable cameo; Denise Richards as George's wife; and Doris Roberts as George's befuddled mom. Madea can handle them all with aplomb--and the mob probably better watch its back too. This edition contains great special features, including a look at how Perry "does" Madea; the world of Madea; a look at the Needlemans; and a salute to Madea's comedy icons. For Tyler Perry fans, it's not to be missed. --A.T. Hurley

This is quite possibly the best Madea movie to date. Madea has a lot more screentime, making the movie better and funnier. There's hardly any random subplot drama at all. It's a flat-out comedy starring Madea and Eugene Levy. The jokes are hilarious and keep coming. Levy plays George Needleman, a dorky businessman marked for death by a crime family after his company goes bankrupt and he is framed for money laundering. Brian Simmons takes the case and suggests the Needeleman family stay at Madea's house. (That's when all heck breaks loose as she tries to teach them love and respect) Will George and Madea be able to find the money and give it back to the charities? I highly recommend MADEA'S WITNESS PROTECTION!!

This is another fun improbable comedy from Tyler Perry. George (Eugene Levy) has been set up to run a fake charity investment scheme which launders money for the mob. He agrees to testify and along with his family is placed in a witness protection program which places them in Madea's home.

The family suffers from low self-esteem. Barbara (Doris Roberts) is George's mother. She suffers from dementia and jungle fever. George is married to Kate (Denise Richards) his second wife who doesn't get along with Cindy (Danielle Campbell) the rebellious back talking daughter from George's first marriage. Howie (Devan Leos) is the proverbial overweight son.

The film is funny throughout with a smattering of predictable laughs. Tom Arnold has a bit part in the beginning and Tyler Perry plays three roles. 4 1/2 STARS

PARENTAL GUIDE: No f-bombs, n-words, sex, or nudity. Some minor sex humor, such as a play on words such as "hard" and Madea mentioning her stripping and prostitution days.

Tyler Perry has done it again, and Madea's Witness Protection is One of his Best! At first Madea is asked to get involved, she wasn't going to, but an offer for Big Money was made she simply couldn't refuse. This fun-filled family movie is laugh-out-loud from start to finish. Madea is one-of-a-kind, and you never know what to expect from this character. Strong, witty, clever, and has a heart. No-matter what the situation is in different events, Madea will make you laugh, but deep-down inside, she has also helped others in different ways of emotional support. A Fantastic Comedy. Acting Performance Excellent. Loved the New York scene, but there are many entertaining scenes.A Must-See, Must-own! Very Enjoyable and Highly Recommended!

It is a must see! Tyler Perry stays true to who Madea is. I have never laughed so much in a movie theater. See it and add it to your Madea collection.

I love Medea! Reading negative reviews about Medea's Witness Protection, I agree with reviewers who get it; that is, they know also that Medea movies are all about Medea and are not meant to be compared to other movies, since that's not exactly relevant as Medea movies are in their own class. You either like Medea's character or you don't and if you don't, there's no reason to watch, knowing it's all about Medea. I personally totally marvel at Tyler Perry's Medea. She's hilarious and believable. There's few comedians who can do THAT! I'm not a Denise Richards fan either and don't care. I know she can't act. I also know Tyler Perry as Medea will always be funny and the enjoyment of watching Medea movies is because of Medea! If you dislike Medea you won't like the movies!

I LOVE MADEA AND TYLER PERRY but this film was disappointing. It lacked what other Madea films have offered. I like the peek into the culture these films give. We are all the same but different after all and I enjoy seeing both qualities. However, when I choose these MADEA films I look forward to laughing out loud a lot as well while being somewhat intellectually stimulated.

This one did not do it for me.
