THE WORLD’S FUNNIEST GRANDMA ON THE BIG SCREEN AT STER-KINEKOR THEATRES
Tyler Perry is back with his much beloved Madea in Madea’s Witness Protection. This grandmother has won over the hearts of many people, with her bluntness, her tendency to grab for the gun and her statement making. Though not many of the Madea films have lived up to Diary of a Mad Black Woman, nobody can deny that Madea is a great character and people still flock to see the films. This time around Ster-Kinekor is showing Madea’s Witness Protection in theatres. Read the press release below for more information:
Coming to Ster-Kinekor Theatres across the country this month is the comedy Madea’s Witness Protection. Tyler Perry’s Madea is brasher, crankier and more outrageous than ever before and will be on the big screen from 31 August.
When George Needleman, a high-powered banker in New York, is accused of defrauding investors, he finds himself sucked into the mob world where his life is in serious danger. Himself and his family are placed in the witness protection program, sent to the one place where no mobster will ever find them.
Starring Eugene Levy and Denise Richards, Madea’s Witness Protection is a hilarious culture clash as the family move into Madea’s house to hide from hitmen. Thrown out of their comfort zones into the in-your-face grandmother’s life, the Needlemans must decide if facing dangerous criminals might be saner than living with Madea. Similarly Madea and brother Uncle Joe, played by Perry, must manage the completely dysfunctional Connecticut family, whipping them into shape with tough love that often results in jaw-dropping comedy.
Perry’s trademark themes of raucous comedy and emotional upliftment do not fail in Madea’s Witness Protection. Ster-Kinekor Theatres audiences can witness on the big screen how beneath the laughs, a family can come together to change their lives for the better.
This is the seventh film by Perry that the audacious, no-nonsense Madea will feature in, bringing a bold new kind of grandmother to cinema. This is the first time, however, that the director has broken away from the Southern family boundaries. “I knew I wanted to have a fish-out-of water story. I wanted to put her in a whole new situation,” Perry explained.
“We all had so much fun on this movie poking fun at the differences between us as people while at the same time being respectful. The characters clash over everything: the way the Needlemans raise children, the way Madea raises children, what she cooks, what they eat. There was potential for comedy everywhere,” he added.
A new spin on Perry’s hit films, Madea’s Witness Protection is not to be missed at Ster-Kinekor Theatres. With a hilarious cast, an unfailing story line and a successful producer and director, this film is guaranteed to hit the funny bone as the country’s biggest movie exhibitor continues to provide audiences with the best in entertainment.
