Rate this:
After a high-speed freeway chase puts Madea in front of the judge, her reprieve is short-lived as anger management issues get the best of her and land her in jail. A gleeful Joe couldn't be happier at Madea's misfortune. But her eccentric family members, the Browns, rally behind her, lending their special 'country' brand of support. Meanwhile, Assistant District Attorney Joshua Hardaway is on the fast track to career success. But Hardaway lands a case too personal to handle - defending Candace Washington, a woman he went to college with and who is now a prostitute and former drug addict. Handling the case would be a conflict of interest, so he asks his fiancée and fellow ADA Linda Holmes to fill in on his behalf. When Candace ends up in jail, Madea befriends the young woman, protecting her in a 'motherly' way as only Madea can.

A few laughs happen during the Madea portions of this one. This movie plays out like two completely different movies mashed together. A stereotypical black goofball comedy and a poorly acted romantic drama. I wasn't blown away by the comedy and the drama was so bad it ruined the movie.

Fair – Madea Goes to Jail (2009) 103 min. For the price of one film, you get two which eventually converge into one story. One story follows the cantankerous Madea as she tries to avoid jail and the other centers on a man who tries to help an old friend from a life on the streets. The extreme comedy to extreme dramatic situations is strange as a concept but for some reason, the film does work to a degree. The comedy is funny and the dramatic situations have some moral teachings worth a watch. This is not a great film by any stretch of the imagination but it does have its charm despite the overwhelming panning by critics.
