Madea's Witness Protection
In Movie Theaters June 29, 2012
The About face: The latest Madea big screen movie, featuring Tyler Perry in drag.
The Wild side: For years, George Needleman (Emmanuel Levy), the gentle CFO of a Wall Street investment bank, has been living with his head in the clouds. His frustrated second wife, Kate (Denise Richards), has reached her limit taking care of his senile mother, Barbara (Doris Roberts).
His teenage daughter, Cindy (Danielle Campbell), is spoiled beyond hope and his seven-year-old son, Howie (Devan Leos), wishes his father were around more.
But George is finally forced to wake up when he learns that his firm, Lockwise Industries, has been operating a mob-backed Ponzi scheme - and that he's been set up as the fall guy.
How does Madea fit into all of this? Well, you'll have to see the movie to find out, but we assure you, it is the funniest Madea movie yet - especially with "Everybody Loves Raymond" grande dame Marie - er, Doris Roberts - as a costar.
The Movie facts: Combined, Tyler Perry's Madea previous Madea movies - all three - have earned over $200 million at the U.S. box office. We're predicting that this one - which appeals to people of all races and creeds - becomes the highest grossing Tyler Perry movie ever - with more than $100 million at the U.S. box office.
