YMMV / Madea Goes to Jail

  • All There Is to Know About "The Crying Game": Some people only know this as the movie that inspired the notorious Oogieloves. The creator got the idea from seeing a showing of this movie where people were interacting with the film.
  • Les Yay: Tee Tee to Madea, Big Sal to anyone smaller than her in jail. All averted.
  • Memetic Mutation: There are multiples gifs on Tumblr of Madea saying 'Suck it up and shut the hell up."
  • One-Scene Wonder: Judge Greg Mathis as the judge who ultimately sent Madea to jail.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Sofía Vergara as Tee Tee.
  • Strawman Has a Point: Even though Linda's actions throughout the film were totally wrong and illegal and she deserved her ultimate fate, how would you feel if your fiancé became obsessed with an old friend of his, especially one that became a prostitute? Furthermore, her stance of not having to become a victim of your troubled upbringing should have carried more weight than the film gave it credit for.
  • The Woobie: Poor Candy.
    • Josh, whose past actions are clearly eating him up, especially after his breakdown.
