Excellent poster for Madea Goes to Jail

Posted by LiveFor on December 11, 2008

I just thought this poster was a great design yet doesn’t really tell you much about the film in question Not heard of Madea before, but I did notice it stars Keshia Knight Pulliam who was Rudy Huxtable in The Cosby Show. This is what the synopsis on IMDB has to say about the film.

At long last, Madea returns to the big screen in TYLER PERRY’S MADEA GOES TO JAIL. This time America’s favorite irreverent, pistol-packin’ grandmomma is raising hell behind bars and lobbying for her freedom!

After a high-speed freeway chase puts Madea (TYLER PERRY) 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 (TYLER PERRY) couldn’t be happier at Madea’s misfortune. But Madea’s eccentric family members the Browns (DAVID and TAMALA MANN) rally behind her, lending their special “country” brand of support.Meanwhile, Assistant District Attorney Joshua Hardaway (DEREK LUKE) 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 (KEISHA KNIGHT PULLIAM) – and asks his fiancée and fellow ADA Linda Holmes (ION OVERMAN) 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.

Based on Perry’s successful stage play, TYLER PERRY’S MADEA GOES TO JAIL is written, and directed by Tyler Perry. The film is produced by Reuben Cannon. TYLER PERRY’S MADEA GOES TO JAIL also stars RONREACO LEE, VANESSA FERLITO, VIOLA DAVIS, ROBIN COLEMAN, SOPHIA VERGARA, and BOBBI BAKER.

    Awesome poster, yes, but isn’t this supposed to be a comedy? Sure looks like a drama poster.

    That was my thinking Steve. I saw the poster and thought “Gritty jail movie with redemption at some point”, then I read the synopsis and couldn’t put the two things together. Odd way to market it but great poster
