His frustrated second wife, Kate (Richards), has reached her limit taking care of his senile mother, Barbara (Roberts). His teenage daughter, Cindy (Danielle Campbell), is spoiled beyond hope and his twelve-year-old son, Howie (Devan Leos), wishes his father were around more. But George is finally forced to wake up when he learns that his firm, Lockwise Industries, has been operating a mob-backed Ponzi scheme - and that he's been set up as the fall guy, forcing him to be put under witness protection with his entire family in Madea's house down South.

    (The official Dorky White Person Representative, now cast by law in all black urban comedies--
    Failure to cast Eugene Levy in a black urban comedy can be punishable by up to ten years, hefty fines, and/or being forced to cast Ned Beatty, Dennis Leary or Kevin James instead.)
    Yeah, when I saw the ads, have to admit, I'd been wondering how long it would take the franchise to loop all the way back around to "Big Momma's House". :rolleyes:
