Critic Reviews for Madea's Witness Protection
George's son asks for Wi-Fi, and Madea says, ''Sure, I can make you a waffle.'' That's one of the good jokes.
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.
Audience Reviews for Madea's Witness Protection
I like pretty much all of Tyler Perry's movies. Even when they get too melodramatic, they are still pretty entertaining. "Madea's Witness Protection" is his latest in a long line of movies about Madea(Perry in drag). This time Madea takes in a family from New York who are under an FBI investigation while they and receive death threats from the mob. This is a straight up over the top comedy, with zero drama like all of his other movies. While that's kind of a breathe of fresh air, the comedy falls flat a lot. The cast is pretty weak. Eugene Levy is ok, but he is just playing himself, and he's married to Denise Richards. Yeh, it don't make sense to me either. There's a lot of plot holes, and the movie only really works when Madea is on screen. Even though too much of her(or him), gets to be annoying after a while. This is probably my least favorite of the Madea movies, and hopefully if they make more they get better. Watch if your a fan, but skip otherwise.
Not as enjoyable as some of his other films. 2 stars
Funny premise. I think Tyler Perry is quite subversive and for that I love him--sending up ponzi scheme guys, sending up hypocrisy in all shades of black and white. I don't think he's what my friends would call politically correct, so he may have to remain my guilty little pleasure.
