Plot Summary

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.
