Madea Goes to Jail (2009) Poster

Trivia

The "Dr. Phil Scene" was completely ad libbed. Even the "got, get, getter" lines.
The crew was taken through a real prison tour to see what it is like. Some scenes were actually filmed in an Atlantic Penitentiary, some guards were actual prison guards.
The "Dropping the Car" scene was done in one take because they didn't have a second car. The car didn't even work.
Real cops and S.W.A.T members were used for the "Arrest Scene". Also cars and tanks were real.
Derek Luke and Viola Davis reunite after playing together in Antwone Fisher.

Last "unknown" appearance by Sofía Vergara before the premiere of her mega-hit TV series Modern Family (2009) and then she becoming a superstar.
The parking lot scene at the K-mart is similar to the parking lot scene at Winn Dixie in the movie Fried Green Tomatoes.

If Ms. Smug 'n' Shallow was really married to a policeman, one wonders why she had apparently been unaware of ordinary driver courtesy or basic driving safety. Speedily zipping around in front of someone to nab his parking spot is not only extremely rude, but highly illegal and super-dangerous, as well. :P

Madea's absurdly-uninhibited confrontation with Miss Smug 'n' Shallow over the parking spot is somewhat reminiscent of the infamous parking-space brawl started by Mohammad Atta shortly before the 9/11 WTC attacks.
