Movie Info

The outspoken Southern matriarch of Tyler Perry's wildly popular stage show finally lands in the one place where talking won't do her any more good in this release of a performance originally captured on camera before a live audience. Madea (Perry) has a reputation for being able to talk herself out of any tight situation, but when the police arrive determined to haul her away to the pokey, she quickly discovers that sometimes it pays to resist temptation and simply keep your mouth shut. ~ Jason

I loved this Movie. Secretly bought even a DVD.

Some funny moments, but it seemed like Madea was in it less often than I expected and it was very much focused toward a Christian aspect. I felt like I was being preached at rather than being entertained.
