For years, George Needleman (Levy), the gentle CFO of a Wall Street investment bank, has been living with his head in the clouds. 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 seven-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.

A comedy that's too late to the Ponzi-scheme party to be topical, and not outrageous enough to take advantage of its own setups.Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, 06.29.2012
George's son asks for Wi-Fi, and Madea says, ''Sure, I can make you a waffle.'' That's one of the good jokes.Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, 07.04.2012
A spectacularly slapdash and wearingly half-hearted effort from the prolific writer-director-actor, lacking energy, structure or common sense.Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, 06.29.2012
Even such potentially amusing comic set-pieces as when Madea goes through airport security, with predictably chaotic results, feel awfully half-hearted.Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, 06.29.2012
