Ok, here's the deal.I am a black fellow and I was introduced to the "Tyler Perry" experience by my then girlfriend. She was taking me out for a surprise to go see a Madea play.Being a reasonably well-read person, I assumed that it was the greek version. You know the one with where she kills her kids. Good Stuff!! But alas, it was Tyler Perry and his band of characters. It was reasonably entertaining but I wasn't a hard core fan but I could mark it on my passport of experiences. Since that time, I have seen his empire grow with more sold out plays and film. I am still not a fan of his but I can't say his body is not valid because it is not my cup of tea. Why can't we all get Woody Allen(because we all are not manic-depressive urbanites) or all Hitchcock fans,etc. I applaud Perry for catering to his niche which for the majority is black women which shows in dollar signs their economic influence. No offense, but you obviously established a negative opinion before seeing which was partially why you were reluctant to see it in the first place so being a movie snob is one thing but rationizing why everyone has to like it is another whether it is a white or black film. Welcome to my world, I, along with some of my friends didn't get the big deal with No Country fro Old Men although we are Coen Bro Fans!! BTW, the intern Tiffany is such a cutie if she does like the movie.
