Madea Goes to Jail Movie

Madea Goes to Jail the movie is a movie that made me laugh. Nowadays, we could all use a good laugh sometimes, couldn't we?

  • Here is a movie review for yet another one of Tyler Perry's funny films, Madea Goes to Jail.
  • Tyler Perry's work is generally hilarious and Madea Goes to Jail the movie is a good comedy among his projects.

For those of you who are not familiar with his movies, Tyler Perry himself stars as the main character, Madea, where he dons the costume of an elderly woman. Yes, you heard right. Perry credits the character to many of the 'tell it like it is' women he has known in his life including his own grandmother. As a man who has experienced homelessness and incarceration himself, Perry has a very inspiring and empowering story of triumph. He owns the first black owned film and television studios in Atlanta, Georgia today and has produced numerous books, plays, and movies including Madea Goes to Jail.

In this particular film, Madea Goes to Jail, the actor, writer, director and producer continues to shine and leave us laughing for days. Rent Madea Goes to Jail from netflix, red box, blockbuster or other rental place today and you'll be in for a treat.

Keep on laughing

Interestingly enough, Tyler Perry movies often deal with serious situations but put a light spin on things to remind us to keep on laughing through the turmoil. In Madea Goes to Jail, the story centers around several characters including Madea of course. Madea is notorious for committing petty crimes and running from the cops. All of this is portrayed in an incredibly comical way. It is an ongoing part of the theme in Madea movies. This time is no different except the law finally catches up with Madea.

To illustrate this, two famous television judges make guest appearances in the movie. They are Judge Mablean and Judge Mathis.

Judge Mablean gets very close to prosecuting Madea but it falls through because the cops failed to read her the Miranda rights when they apprehended her.

Much to Judge Mablean's chagrin, Judge Mathis is the one who finally gets Madea behind bars.

But don't worry, Madea is a tough lady and I do mean tough, manly even. She holds her own when she goes to prison. There she meets an interesting group of fellow prisoners including a prostitute, a character played by Keshia Knight Pulliam (that's right, Rudy Huxtable from the Cosby Show).

Madea Goes to Jail intertwines the stories of various characters and how they ended up in jail and also tells the story of how their eventual releases come about.

Tyler Perry has once again succeeded in making a movie that is both funny and touching. Mostly funny!

I rate it 3/5 stars
