What's happening to Tyler Perry?
I consider myself a big Tyler Perry fan. I watched many of his filmed stage plays and his movies. My favorite TP movies are Diary of a Mad Black Woman and I Can Do Bad All By Myself. I can watch those particular movies over and over again because they are both dramatic and very funny, touching on real relationship themes, and both celebrate the triumph of the human spirit.
However, I cannot say the same for the recent movies TP has directed and/or produced. With the exception of the Oscar-winning Precious, his more recent films seem deadly serious, or flat, or not fully developed; in other words, they lack joy and or too predictable, as is the case of his latest Temptation movie. If this is TP's attempt to produce his own Fatal Attraction or Unfaithful, he fails miserably at it. In a nutshell, if you've seen the trailer for this underwritten, unimaginative story, you've seen it all. There's nothing more to say. Mr. Perry, where have you gone?
