The Truth

The movie is very good and don't believe all the other reviews. It's a very good movie and everyone else has no sense of humor. It taught really good lessons and wasn't even that bad. Madea's lessons are timeless and always useful.

13 and up.

Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection is a great comedy movie filled with lots of laughs this is a good madea movie for the whole family to enjoy and of course good for your teens and parent's there's only a few thing's that you need to look out for in this film the movie has some some crude sexual remarks used and some mild language used and some drinking and drugs used such as cigarettes and A bottle of champagne is seen the message in this movie is clear that to Be a good citizen, old or young, and the world is a much better place Also, don't take any guff and the role models are that Madea cusses and screams and sometimes resorts to corporal punishment i.e. a slap or two to get her point across, but that point is usually well-meaning She thinks children should respect their elders, adults should be responsible and capable no whining and everyone should be mindful of their contribution to this world.
