'Madea Gets A Job' Coming Out On Blu-Ray DVD In Feb.

So when I heard about this new DVD coming out, my first thought was, when did this Tyler Perry movie come out? He cranks them out like a sausage machine, so I thought this was one that slipped by.

Turns out this is not a film, of course, but a stage play which toured around the U.S. earlier this year. And if you missed it, here’s your chance.

A Blu-ray DVD of the play is coming out from Lionsgate Films on Feb. 5

Starring, who else, as Madea (which begs the question – does he have an understudy if he can’t perform that night, and if so who is he?), Patrice Lovely, Chandra Currelley-Young and Cheryl “Pepsii” Riley (God, that’s a name I haven’t heard in 20 years) and shows what happens “when a judge orders Madea to do 20 hours of community service at a local retirement home, the residents and staff are not ready for Madea’s brand of “the truth”, but all is well that ends well when Madea helps the residents of Easy Rest Retirement Home realize the importance of family, love and forgiveness.

The only extra feature is an Under the Skirt…I mean a Behind the Curtain with the cast of Madea Gets a Job.
