Madea's Witness Protection

What it's about:

For years, George Needleman, the gentle CFO of a Wall Street investment bank, has been living with his head in the clouds. His frustrated second wife, Kate, has reached her limit in taking care of his senile mother, Barbara. His teenage daughter, Cindy, is spoiled beyond hope, and his seven-year-old son, Howie, wishes his father were around more.

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.

What the critics thought:

"George's son asks for Wi-Fi, and Madea says, 'Sure, I can make you a waffle.' That's one of the good jokes."
- Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

"The interaction among opposites inspires an abundance of predictable race-based jokes, many of which have the saving grace of actually being funny."
- Joe Leydon, Variety

"A spectacularly slapdash and wearingly half-hearted effort from the prolific writer-director-actor, lacking energy, structure or common sense."
- Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times


A Wall Street investment banker who has been set up as the linchpin of his company's mob-backed Ponzi scheme is relocated with his family to Aunt Madea's southern home.
