Just Creepy
26 December 2013 | by jaiamiSee all my reviews

Is anybody else as creeped-out as I am about Tyler Perry constantly appearing on-screen in drag? The next movie should have Medea as a serial killer because she is most definitely morphing into the look of a crazed serial killer. If you can get over the barrage of horrifying images of that (very much like LeBron James in drag) that this movie brings forth, the remainder is just the ash of what was probably a very weak, misguided idea to begin with. It is apparent from this film that Tyler Perry now considers himself a more serious film maker. But the results are laughable. This movie is three steps back from more relevant, and four steps back from funny. Tyler needs to look away from the mirror and take a careful look at his movies. He is ever more quickly moving toward C movie status.
