For years, mild-mannered Wall Street banker George Needleman (Eugene Levy) has meandered through life oblivious to his family's dysfunction and his company's malfeasance, but he's forced to wake up when he learns that he's been framed in a mob-backed Ponzi scheme. Placed under federal protection, George and his family are shipped down South to Madea's (Tyler Perry) house, where the no-nonsense matriarch whips them all into shape using her special brand of tough love.

  • While I fully support the appearance of a new Madea movie every six months, even Tyler Perry can't be bothered to take this setup seriously. show more

  • Madea is starting to look a little tired. show more

  • With Tyler Perry gradually segueing toward non-drag leading man status with "Good Deeds" and the upcoming James Patterson thriller "Alex Cross," his latest appearance as the sassy, wisdom-dispensing matriarch of the title in Madea's Witness Protection has an aura of fatigued reluctance to it, as does the film itself. show more

    i am a big tyler fan, but this movie did not cut it. it felt like they were reaching for jokes in this movie because of his notorious way of going off script. (check). it felt as though the film was rushed and pieced together. the earlier madea films were a bit more planned out, so some of the jokes were just off. (check). i know that tyler is under fire for not catering more towards the average white movie-goers, but i think this movie ******** touch. (check). some of the acting felt amature though there is a cast of professionals in this film. tyler, you will have to do better than this. (check). i am giving this less than an average rating by comparison to his earlier madea films. this film was just money to burn. (check). \"good deeds\" was a great film. with this madea film being so close after the release of \"good deeds\", it felt as though there was no focus on making this movie click. i was not feeling this moving at all.
