Madea's Witness Protection Reviews

Unambitious and evaporates almost as rapidly as it plays out, but at least it knows what it is and only has one aim: to divert viewers for two hours.

Susan Granger
SSG Syndicate

The frantic seventh installment in this highly successful comedy franchise is filled with throwaway gags and self-conscious scenes.

His best and most agreeable Madea comedy.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Much of the film doesn't even play as Tyler Perry, but as yet another example in the evergreen "Eugene Levy slumming it for a paycheck" subgenre.

The film is slapdash entertainment not meant to be further contemplated after leaving the theatre.

There are laughs in it, according to the enthusiastic audience I saw it with, but they're pretty spaced out and belong to Madea. What happens between them is unremarkable.

A big step backwards for a star who has better things to do.

George's son asks for Wi-Fi, and Madea says, ''Sure, I can make you a waffle.'' That's one of the good jokes.

As long as the movie focuses on Madea it is funny, and fun for the audience, but when the camera is off her the movie drags.

In short, a real drag.

Perry's writing shows a disturbing amount of cynicism, if not downright meanness, for a family movie.

He's still a young guy, but all throughout Witness Protection I imagined Perry sitting glumly at a dressing-room mirror, like the aging Chaplin in Limelight, forlornly rubbing makeup in his face -- a tired, old clown stuck in a tired, old routine.

The writer-director-star still hasn't learned to smoothly blend broad comedy and family-values sermonizing.

Reviewing a Tyler Perry movie is a bit like reviewing the weather report.

Tyler Perry doesn't have to make sense, or a have a point. He's laughing all the way to the bank.

The mighty Madea preaches, but with less fire this time.

The film remains buoyed by the same open heart that makes Tyler Perry's best work so endearing.

Perry sustains an infusion of tangy wit, as he mines the cultural and economic but primarily racial disconnects and divides of this nation. With a charmingly sweet and sour, more buoyant than boisterous Perry this time around, playfully at the helm.

The interaction among opposites inspires an abundance of predictable race-based jokes, many of which have the saving grace of actually being funny.
