Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail

It seems like every time somebody farts, a new Tyler Perry movie comes out. Perry’s latest, Madea Goes to Jail, stinks to high heaven, so that backs up that theory. Writer/director Perry traffics in discordant, discombobulated movies involving his overweight, elderly drag persona, Madea. The films are always part-serious and part-slapstick. Admittedly, Madea does have some funny moments, but they are peppered into a film that deals with the horrors of prostitution, drug addiction and asshole prospective wives. You get a weighty scene in which actor Derek Luke is spewing tears all over the place, followed by a scene in which Madea beats up somebody or causes major public mayhem. It just doesn’t work.
