Preview: Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection (2012)


A white family, having inadvertently crossed the mob, is put into witness protection in the home of black matriarch Madea.

  • Poster: C


The last time I saw a witness protection comedy in the '80s, the design looked almost like this. I don't remember what film it was, just like I doubt anyone will remember this one.

  • Trailer: C- / B-/li>


Relying on the Tyler Perry character of Madea may sell the film to fans of his work; everyone else, will likely be unimpressed with this mostly sophomoric humor.

This second trailer is surprisingly effective. While the Madea character still isn't that interesting to me, the film looks like it could be a bit of harmless, generic fun.
