Absolutely incorrect as usual. I go hard on anything that I think is crap. Tyler Perry makes movies on the level of a retarded junior high school student. He deserves any and all criticism that he gets. From me and everyone else.

I accept all that stuff too. But his work is still garbage.

Two and a Half Men is the highest rated sitcom in America. It's awful.

The Devil Wears Prada made $124 million. It was awful.

Just because something makes a lot of money doesn't meat that it's worthy of respect. Everyone with a brain understands that.

>good B) has an audience) tyler gettin paid on tried and true
>southern black comedy roots....and you mad.

Replace quirky with good, and you might actually have something. Films are art and it's absolutely valid to address them based on their artistic merit. For some reason, you have the asinine habit of forgetting all of that whenever something was created by a black person.

His work is garbage. I'm talking about it. And YOU are mad.
