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.

  • 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

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

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