Tyler Perry recommends...wait for it...

Posted By on Thu, Sep 8, 2011 at 11:31 AM

While the impressive upgrade of Tyler Perry's new Web site passed without comment from us, the same can not be said of this week's email, in which Mr. Perry makes a startling recommendation:


While Mr. Parry is a master self-promoter, in the past he's been very selective with his recommendations. Generally sending his followers to films that are in his wheelhouse:

Precious (for which he and Oprah were brought aboard to as promotional partners) and The Help (no comment needed) come to mind.

The decision to recommend Warrior, a film set within the brutal, high-stakes world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighting seems crazy.

That is until I noticed that it's being release by Lionsgate.

Tyler Perry wears a new hat: team player.

Were gonna play a game called tear that ass up!
  • We're gonna play a game called 'tear that ass up!'

I'm super curious to see what his loyal followers (read: Christian, African American, Female) make of this violent, testosterone-filled story of white male redemption.
