I… I have a confession:  I don’t get Tyler Perry movies.  This is the trailer for Madea Goes to Jail and I have no idea what the hell is going on in it.  It looks like a made-for-TV Hallmark movie about folks struggling-ta-make-ends-meet, except there’s a fish-out-of-water comedy about a cross-dressing guy in a fat suit embedded in it.  And then the cross-dressing fat suit guy starts preaching at one point, and then Dr. Phil shows up and then…  Is it just me?  Does any of this make sense to you?  It’s like a mash-up of Pursuit of Happyness and Big Momma’s House.  Reinforcing your faith and cheap laughs, together at last.
