Movie Info & Cast


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 Madea's 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 young prostitute and former drug addict Candace Washington--and 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.

For all its staleness, the melodramatic main story does contain enough good acting and resonant scenes.

There is, however, Viola Davis, who might win an Oscar tomorrow for her one scene in Doubt. Her part here - a minister combing the street for crack-whores to rescue - is about three times as large.
