QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: A Wall Street CFO set up to be the patsy in a Ponzi scheme is relocated to an FBI safe house, which is owned by Tyler Perry's sassy Madea character.
PLOT:
When accountant-turned-CFO George Needleman (EUGENE LEVY) discovers that he is the patsy in a Ponzi scheme that has bilked a dozen charities out of millions of dollars and laundered money for the mob, he decides to help the FBI retrieve the swindled funds. He also hopes his testimony will put his crooked CEO, Walter (TOM ARNOLD), behind bars.

To keep him protected from the Mafia, good-hearted agent Brian (TYLER PERRY) places George and his family with his sassy, domineering Aunt Madea (Also PERRY) and his father Joe (also PERRY) in Atlanta. Madea quickly clashes with George's younger second wife, Kate (DENISE RICHARDS); snotty teenage daughter Cindy (DANIELLE CAMPBELL); and put-upon son, Howie (DEVAN LEOS). George's senile mother, Barbara (DORIS ROBERTS), meanwhile, believes that she has finally found George's biological father Joe!

George's attempts to right the wrong that has been done to the various charities takes on added urgency when he befriends a local young man named Jake (ROMEO MILLER) who invested his father's church money with the firm only to lose it to the Ponzi scheme. To get back the funds, George eventually has to enlist Madea to take part in an elaborate bank ruse.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Those who are fans of Tyler Perry's Madea character might be interested, as might those who are fans of any other cast member.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For some crude sexual remarks and brief drug references.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
