A couple days away from its theatrical release, "Madea Goes to Jail" has been given a red carpet treatment as Lionsgate Films threw a New York premiere on Wednesday, February 18. Held at AMC Loews Lincoln Center in New York, the special screening event was attended by movie stars and musicians among others.

From the cast ensemble, Tyler Perry, Derek Luke, Keshia Knight Pulliam, Aisha Hinds, Sofia Vergara, Vanessa Ferlito and Robin Coleman were all making an appearance on the evening. Joining them were producer Reuben Cannon and those making the cameo in the movie, including TV personality Sherri Shepherd and Judge Greg Mathis.

Aside from the cast and crew of "Madea Goes to Jail", the event also saw other actors, such as Chyna Layne of "Cadillac Records", Dennis L.A. White and Naturi Naughton of "Notorious" and Gabourey Sidibe of "Push: Based on the Novel by Sapphire". R 'n' B singers, Mary J. Blige and Monica, have also come to the premiere.

Inspired by Perry's play of the same name, "Madea Goes to Jail" marks Tyler Perry's return as physically imposing and overbearing, but well-intentioned Mable "Madea" Simmons. In the film, Madea's trouble-making act has finally landed her behind bars. But, it doesn't stop her from protecting Candy, a fellow inmate who becomes the subject of bully by a large woman named Big Sal. It is set to be opened in U.S. theaters on February 20.

The movie was GREAT. I wish there was more Madea in the movie. But this is one to buy when it comes out on DVD. Another good one Tyler Perry.
