Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail

Free Madea Movement HAPPENING Feb 18-19 across America.  Now on MySpace, fans can create their own mugshots, download iron-on designs for t-shirts, or even receive voice messages and texts straight from Madea herself!  It would be great if you could let your readers know about this fun event.  For more info and to see rally dates and times, go to: http://www.myspace.com/FreeMadea.

Inspired by Perry's play of the same name, the film center's around the irreverent, pistol-packin' grandmomma, Madea.

After a high-speed freeway chase puts her in front of the judge, Madea's reprieve is short-lived as anger management issues get the best of her and land her in jail.

But Madea's eccentric family members the Browns rally behind her, lending their special "country" brand of support.  The movie stars Tyler Perry, Keshia Knight Pulliam (Rudy Huxtable from the Cosby Show), Derek Luke (Friday Night Lights) and Sofia Vergara.

Madea Goes to Jail hits theaters Friday, February 20.At long last, Madea returns to the big screen in TYLER PERRY'S MADEA GOES TO JAIL.  This time America's favorite irreverent, pistol-packin' grandmomma is raising hell behind bars and lobbying for her freedom...Hallelujer! 

After a high-speed freeway chase puts Madea (TYLER PERRY) 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 (TYLER PERRY) couldn't be happier at Madea's misfortune.  But Madea's eccentric family members the Browns (DAVID and TAMALA MANN) rally behind her, lending their special "country" brand of support.

Meanwhile, Assistant District Attorney Joshua Hardaway (DEREK LUKE) is on the fast track to career success. But Hardaway lands a case too personal to handle - defending young prostitute and former drug addict Candace Washington (KEISHA KNIGHT PULLIAM) - and asks his fiancée and fellow ADA Linda Holmes (ION OVERMAN) 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.

Based on Perry's successful stage play, TYLER PERRY'S MADEA GOES TO JAIL is written, and directed by Tyler Perry.  The film is produced by Reuben Cannon.  TYLER PERRY'S MADEA GOES TO JAIL also stars RONREACO LEE, VANESSA FERLITO, VIOLA DAVIS, ROBIN COLEMAN, SOPHIA VERGARA, and BOBBI BAKER.
