Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail
Source: Catholic News Service
Intermittently amusing sequel in which the outsized antics of the comically wayward titular matriarch (Tyler Perry) are interspersed through a sober drama about an Atlanta assistant district attorney's (Derek Luke) effort to reclaim a childhood friend (Keshia Knight Pulliam) who's become a drug-addicted prostitute, despite the objections of his pampered fiancee (Ion Overman). Perry, who also wrote and directed, lacks a subtle touch and indulges in a few mild impieties, but he also pays tribute to the redeeming effects of faith and forgiveness, especially through the character of a dedicated minister (Viola Davis). Prostitution theme, off-screen rape, a scene of physical abuse, drug use, some sexual and slightly irreverent humor, a few crass words and at least one use of profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III—adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13—parents strongly cautioned; some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
