Madea winds up in the middle of mayhem when she spends a haunted Halloween fending off killers, paranormal poltergeists, ghosts, ghouls and zombies while keeping a watchful eye on a group of misbehaving teens.
Madea returns in another comedy in which she gets sent to "the big house". Regardless of the circumstances, she gives her trademark advice and wisdom to her friends and family as they learn... See full summary »
Cheryl Pepsii Riley,
When a family meets for Christmas at their posh Cape Cod estate, family arguments and secrets cause a stir. It takes a real down-to-earth family - like Aunt Bam and the almighty Madea - to save this holiday.
Madea's absurdly-uninhibited confrontation with Miss Smug 'n' Shallow over the parking spot is somewhat reminiscent of the infamous parking-space brawl started by Mohammad Atta shortly before the 9/11 WTC attacks. See more »
During the initial shenanigans between Madea and Miss Smug 'n' Shallow, the forklift is being used by the workmen. When Miss Smug 'n' Shallow steals the parking-spot and waltzes into the store, though, the forklift is shown in its folded-down position and is obviously not being used, and then just moments later when Madea first spots it, the forklift is again partially raised, and the men are working around it.

"Madea Goes to Jail" stands out in most of the movies I've seen, for one reason only: It was one of the two movies I've ever walked out on in the theater.
I admit it, I only laughed a couple times...but for the most part ,the humor consisted of nothing but shallow, harshly stereotypical and unclassy "jokes". Tyler Perry's portrayal of African-Americans is almost insulting. Not only that, but Madea was only shown for less than half of it! The only thing saving this from a 1 is Keisha Knight Pulliam's performance. She was the ONLY interesting thing about this crap fest. I look forward to more from her, but please, Tyler Perry, no more.
