Madea, that soulful battle-ax, finally runs out of gas. In what sounds like the worst sitcom pilot of 1977, George (Eugene Levy), a disgraced CFO, is placed in Witness Protection — which means that he and his spoiled family have to hide out in Madea’s house. But the culture clash fizzles. George’s son asks for Wi-Fi, and Madea says, ”Sure, I can make you a waffle.” That’s one of the good jokes. D+
