Tyler Perry is NOT a comic "genius"...
Apr 12, 2009
thomas1652 - imdb.com
"Madea Goes to Jail" stands out in most of the movies I've seen, for one reason only: It was one of the two movies I've ever walked out on in the theater. I admit it, I only laughed a couple times...but... Full review
Cod Liver Oil or this Movie

...cod liver oil hands down! This movie is just plain a waste of my time. I should've walked out. You should to if you are forced to watch it. I don't understand why Perry keeps on making these horrendous movies. I... Full review
Madea was horrible

The story line went everywhere that you followed more about the prostitute than you did Madea; the main character. The connection between the two never developed and it just didn't make sense. Secondary to Madea going to jail, the plot seemed... Full review
Topsy Turvy Movie

jackcartlidge8 - imdb.com
This narrative can't make it's mind up. The director (who also writes it) gets confused between whether he has written a comedy, or a melodrama. The scenes containing what we believe to be the main protagonist 'Madea' are an attempt at... Full review
I am a Tyler Perry fan. I am a fan of Madea. Madea's character is not the same as any developed by either Martin Lawrence or Eddy Murphy. Madea has dimension. You want to see more of Madea and less of... Full review

Tyler Perry started out very well with his plays. It was more of a cult following. He would come to town and people would be entertained with some reasonably good stage plays. After awhile Hollywood saw the that the black guy... Full review
NOT Tyler Perry's Finest Hour
Mar 08, 2009

Tyler Perry is back and don't expect MADEA GOES TO JAIL to be as great as Why Did I Get Married and The Family That Preys because this one is in the same level as Meet the Browns, only funny at... Full review
Why does America HATE Tyler Perry?
Mar 07, 2009
jamesmode23 - imdb.com
A Sitcom now this. Is this film truly awful? Or is it just a Tyler Perry hate campaign i.e similar to the one on Paris Hilton? (Are her films really some of the worst ever made?) As a Brit I am... Full review
Go to this movie to enjoy yourself!

Trust me, I did not expect to like this movie. Never having seen a Tyler Perry movie, I had only the lewd and ludicrous trailers to go off. In other words, I thought the film would be really stupid. Not so!... Full review
Funny

In this Funny comedy Tyler Perry brings back Mabel(Madea)Simmons. In this movie Madea starts out in jail from her last movie Meet the Browns after beating up the cops. Apparently she gets off the hook because the cops didn't do something... Full review

Just Press Play
The Madea franchise stagnated after the first film and yet Tyler Perry has pounded out at least eight Madea-infused productions since then.....Lee is an established director who, despite his many failures, has put out one or two decent films in his day.....But Madea's personality will only allow her stay out of trouble for about half the movie and eventually she winds up in the slammer.....His films are horribly directed, have blatant racial prejudices and constantly revert back to the transvestite granny w ...

There's an interesting cast of characters at every point.....what started out as a remarkably fast and hysterically comical influx of a film became a slow drama, and then a melodrama.....Candie, played by the symmetrically pleasing Keshia Knight Pulliam ("Rudy Huxtable" from The Cosby Show), has a history with Joshua.....It's the kind of cheap, throwaway humor you might as well be entertained by..... ...
