Celebrate the Fourth of July with 'The Godfather,' 'Coming to America' and other great immigrant movies

4 July 2012 12:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"The Coneheads" (1993): They may come here as invaders but wind up living the classic American immigrant story -- even if they are visitors from another planet. Oops, make that France, as they like to say. Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtin, with their bullet-shaped, bald skulls, are hilarious in one of the very few skits from "Saturday Night Live" that actually shines as a movie. It perfectly captures the usual worries of new Americans -- problems with green cards, children who forget cultural traditions and fitting in with new neighbors.

"Coming to America" (1988): Prince Akeem of Zamunda (Eddie Murphy) turns 21, and as is the custom of his fictional country, needs to find a woman who can bear his heirs. Judging by names alone, the prince thinks he can find one in Queens. The film shines with Murphy, Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones and John Amos. An interesting behind-the-scenes factoid »

Exclusive: Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection Cast Interviews

30 June 2012 1:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Tyler Perry's most famous character, Madea, returns to theaters in Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection. Tyler Perry wrote, produced, directed, and plays three characters in this latest Madea installment. The film is a classic fish out of water tale with Eugene Levy staring as a gullible accountant duped by the mob to take the fall in a huge ponzi scheme. The government puts him, his wife (Denise Richards), and their bratty children in the witness protection program...Which unfortunately for them is Madea's house in Atlanta. The family soon finds out that their bickering and selfishness are in for some serious straightening out. Rapper-turned-actor Lil' Romeo co-stars as a preacher's son whose charity has been ripped off in the ponzi scheme. Check out our interviews with the cast below!

New Trailer for Madea’s Witness Protection

17 May 2012 10:36 AM, PDT | Movie Cultists | See recent Movie Cultists news »

Tyler Perry stumbled onto a goldmine when he got the idea of dressing up in drag as a feisty woman named Madea, and the southern belle (?) is tackling the Big Apple in Madea’s Witness Protection.

I am a Huge fan of the Madea films and Perry continues to show his comic talent in this latest adventure that pairs Madea with American Reunion’s Eugene Levy as a nice guy that suddenly discovers he was laundering money for the Mafia. Levy and his family can’t be placed in regular witness protection so they’re forced to hide out with Madea. However, this film adds a twist by taking her out of her element and sending her to New York. The Big Apple will never be the same again.

Of course, Madea is at her best when she gets involved in family dynamics so she also helps Levy with his »
