A funny, sometime serious and deeply Christian romantic musical comedy.
15 November 2008 | by (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

My resistance to the Tyler Perry vision is crumbling. I'm not sure exactly why. I'm. still an agnostic and some of the humor is sub-Martin Lawrence. But when more of an artist's work rings true than not true I have to sit up and pay attention. I watch all kinds of films and television and I can proudly acknowledge that Tyler Perry is up there with Marc Cherry, the creator of WEEDS and SOUL FOOD, Ryan Murphy and UGLY BETTY. Perry has a tremendous grasp of classic Greek drama and arguably Elizabethan drama, too. He speaks to his audience clearly and warmly. I can't wait for the film version of this play. Somehow, he even goofs on THE MATRIX in this work. He's deserving of major props and respect.
