Sarah Roemer and Nicholas D’Agosto star in Screen Gems’ comedy “Fired Up!”
PINELLAS COUNTY – A number of new movie releases will hit theaters Feb. 20, including the following:
“Fired Up!” – Shawn (Nicholas D’Agosto) and Nick (Eric Christian Olsen) are top scorers on the Ford High School football team – both on and off the field.
When they hatch a scheme to trade their footballs for pom-poms and join the school’s most beautiful girls at cheer camp, the new team members actually give the girls’ historically awful cheer squad a chance at success. And when Shawn falls for the head cheerleader (Sarah Roemer), the boys must learn some new moves and unleash their inner spirit to prove their intentions before the all-important cheer competition finals. Rated PG-13.
“Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail” – At long last, Madea returns to the big screen in “Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail.”
This time America’s favorite irreverent, pistol-packin’ grandmomma is raising hell behind bars and lobbying for her freedom.
After a high-speed freeway chase puts Madea (Tyler Perry) in front of the judge, her reprieve is short-lived as anger management issues get the best of her and land her in jail. A gleeful Joe (Tyler Perry) couldn’t be happier at Madea’s misfortune. But Madea’s eccentric family members the Browns (David and Tamela Mann) rally behind her, lending their special brand of support.
Meanwhile, assistant district attorney Joshua Hardaway (Derek Luke) is on the fast track to career success. But Hardaway lands a case too personal to handle – defending young prostitute and former drug addict Candace Washington (Keshia Knight Pulliam) – and asks his fiancée and fellow ADA Linda Holmes (Ion Overman) to fill in on his behalf. When Candace ends up in jail, Madea befriends the young woman, protecting her in a motherly way as only Madea can. Rated PG-13.
