When Miss Smug 'n' Shallow begins to waltz across the parking lot toward the BigK after her rude-smiley sass reply of, "I saw you --- I took it!", she starts to cross over the white-painted handicapped-striped area in the next spot over from her car. Several seconds elapse after this, during the close-up shot of Madea doing her "Yeah, just walk off like you bad! Are you bad?!" fuming, yet when the camera cuts away to the wide-angle again, Miss S&S is just barely to the other side of the striped area, which would have only taken her a second or two to reach.

"Madea Goes to Jail" stands out in most of the movies I've seen, for one reason only: It was one of the two movies I've ever walked out on in the theater.
I admit it, I only laughed a couple times...but for the most part ,the humor consisted of nothing but shallow, harshly stereotypical and unclassy "jokes". Tyler Perry's portrayal of African-Americans is almost insulting. Not only that, but Madea was only shown for less than half of it! The only thing saving this from a 1 is Keisha Knight Pulliam's performance. She was the ONLY interesting thing about this crap fest. I look forward to more from her, but please, Tyler Perry, no more.
