About the Movie
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 (Keshia Knight Pulliam) - and asks his fiancée 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
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.
Rotten: Tyler Perry's latest soul operetta lives up to the mischief promised by its title. But that isn't nearly enough of the time.
Rotten: The law of diminishing returns catches up with the mega-successful multihyphenate in this wildly uneven effort.
Rotten: If the movie is a mess, it's a purposeful mess, cannily, if not artfully, pushing all the right buttons to ensure Perry will be back for another round.
this movie is halarious

Another Hit for Tyler!
I believe this is the best movie so far out of the Madea Series. It's amazingly HILARIOUS, but also has a DEEP tone to it. I can't wait to see "I CAN DO BAD ALL BY MYSELF"!
