Trivia

The house in which Charles' character resides is the actual home of producer Tyler Perry.
Producer Tyler Perry was at one time homeless.
The name "Madea" is a contraction of the word "mother dear".
Tyler Perry paid for half of the $5.5 million budget with Lions Gate Films.
The character Madea is a combination of the women in Tyler Perry's life, his mother, aunties, and sisters.
Madea's outrage when finding the wire hanger is based on how Joan Crawford would lose her temper and mind when she found one in the closet, as her daughter 'Christina Crawford' (who was on the receiving end of some of those hangers) explained in her book "Mommie Dearest".
The script was pitched at Fox Searchlight first but was turned down.
Lions Gate Films received the script back in May 2004 and after a week, they greenlit the film.
