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 (Perry regulars David and Tamela Mann) rally behind her, lending their special "country" brand of support. Meanwhile, Assistant District Attorney Joshua Hardaway (Derek Luke, Antwone Fisher) 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 (The Cosby Show's Keshia Knight Pulliam) - and asks his fiancée and fellow ADA Linda Holmes (Ion Overman, Desperate Housewives) 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. And let's face it, when it comes to laughs, nobody "brings it" like Madea.

Fresh: As ridiculous as his films frequently are, Perry, a shrewd yet benevolent showman, knows and loves his audience.-Melissa Anderson, Village Voice, February 25, 2009
Rotten: The best parts of Madea Goes to Jail are the title character's motormouthed harangues. The rest of it is a fairly clumsy tale of sin and redemption.-A.O. Scott, New York Times, February 23, 2009

Reviewer: Yvonne J Review refers to DVD version
Thoroughly enjoyed Madea goes to Jail. It is some of Tyler's best work. It was not like the Screenplay, but just as entertaining. Love the character Candace. Her situation seems so hopeless, but she comes out on top.
