So utterly mindless, so awful. Ugh.
30 June 2012 | by (Hollywood, United States) – See all my reviews

I tried, honestly I tried. I went along with a friend who loves Tyler. I sat and watched and from the opening credits it was clear that these films are an exercise in masturbating the enormous ego of Mr Perry. Either that or he really cannot get anyone to help him make this drivel.

Tyler Perry by Tyler Perry, filmed by Tyler Perry, starring Tyler Perry. See what I mean. Everything about this theft of our time and cash is abysmal. The wafer thin plot, the crass lines delivered without sympathy or fun. The non comedy, the frankly racist stereotyping.

I gave it a full 15 minutes before walking out. As I did so I will admit that some in the audience were laughing. I suppose that his humor must appeal to some in the same way that some people laugh at someone slipping on a banana skin.

Save your money and watch paint dry, its more entertaining.
