CMI: Madea Goes To Jail

Tyler Perry as the title character (right, licking fingers), eats a meal with a black person

"The women's prison dramedy I wanted."
Wesley Morris
Boston Globe

"It is, in short, ... humour."
Jim Slotek
Jam! Movies

"Two movies for the price of one[!] ... [T]he comedy smashed against the drama makes the whole thing... entertaining."
Jackie K. Cooper

"Roger Ebert's tsunami of racism... is more than sporadically amusing.... Perry's film benefits."
Rob Humanick
Slant Magazine

"Once again, Perry has concocted... what he feels reasonably safe in assuming they want...[:] B.O., ...exactly what they do indeed desire. "
Joe Leydon

"[E]verything Madea says is gold, ... the storyline will literally stop so we can hear the crazed crone go off for no particular reason. [Hooray!]"
Bill Gibron

Full disclosure: Photo captions are now being outsourced to India. Amazingly, it is cheaper than doing it myself. The firm I've contracted is so well reputed I don't even read the captions anymore. Jai ho!
