I kid, I kid, but I’m also kind of serious. When someone mentions Tyler Perry, it’s only fair to think of him dressing up in old lady drag, bible thumping, and moralizing about how women shouldn’t open their legs for any good looking dude like they are a 24-hour Golden Corral. (Seriously, did you see Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor? Way to send a message to women that if they are not faithful, they’re going to get AIDS and everyone will hate them. Ugh!)
But here’s the thing: Ty Ty isn’t the owner of these kinds of movie tropes, so it’s about time we stop acting like it and recognize other movies that rely on these storytelling motifs. For example:

Following her turn earlier this year as infamous murderer, Lizzie Borden, Christina Ricci is set to reprise her role for Lifetime’s follow-up show. The six episode limited series, Lizzie Borden: The Fall River Chronicles, will pick up where the movie left off, and follow Borden after her acquittal.
The sequel series will be produced by Sony Pictures TV, who also developed the first movie. Lifetime aired that feature, Lizzie Borden Took An Ax, this past January to great acclaim. A viewership of 4.4 million indicated that audiences are really rather keen on watching attractive women go bananas, hence the sequel series.
“For more than a century, the world has been captivated by the legend of Lizzie Borden. But no one has captured her enigmatic menace as well as Christina Ricci,” said Lifetime’s Rob Sharenow (via Deadline). “This series will take viewers further down Lizzie Borden’s dark path, »
