Don't Meet the Browns


Dear Tyler,

That was some bullshit and you know it.

I have never been a huge fan of yours and often rejected this notion that you are showing black America on film. In fact the only thing missing from this film was a monkey and black face. But after your last movie, Why Did I Get Married?, I thought your craft was improving. And then you went and created this bullshit.

It was too my horror that my favorite Emmy and Academy Award-nominated, and Golden Globe winning actress who has flawlessly played many great characters was reduced to star in this film. It truly must be a hard time in Hollywood for black actresses. And for the record she is the ONLY reason I went to see what I figured would be total nonsense.

I haven't seen all the many Madea plays but even I noticed you made Mr. Brown's wife his daughter in the movie... and what was the point of Medea and the car chase, that had absolutely nothing to do with the story and seemed like a last minute chance for you to dress in drag yet again. The storyline was so predictable and unbelievable at the same time. For example, it just so happens the person recruiting Lance Goss' character in Chicago happens to live down the street from your family in some small ass town in Georgia. I could go on and on.

The directing of my high school musical my senior year was ten times better... the editing was choppy.. the storyline was unrealistic and not believable at all. Tyler you owe me $11.25. Actually seeing the beautiful Angela Basset was probably worth $3... but I want my change.

I'm glad I didn't go. I usually wait to hear word of mouth before seeing movies anymore.

I was told that the clip of Madea was meant to advertise the next movie, Madea Goes To Jail.

Oh Lord - really? I'm going to still go and see it...I hope I feel otherwise about it cuz I love me some Tyler and Madea.

Respecfully Requesting a Refund. I have yet to see the movie, and if this is any indication of what is in store I would like strongly suggest to your readers wait for the release of the DVD.

Sorry to learn that you were so disappointed and yes Mr. Perry has a great line up of actors, but the roles he cast them in can really be distasteful at times.

That movie was funny as hell!!!! It didn't have the best script, or cast, or plot, but I was enterained, because I wasn't expecting anything but to laugh. And that's what I did.

His plays/movies are very predictable to me because they have the same storyline: woman betrayed/treated bad by her well-to-do boyfriend/husband gets scooped up by a blue collar man who treats her much better. Throw in some lines from the Bible and there's your movie.

He has a formula that seems to work for him (and his pockets). I'm not a big fan either, but he's a mover and shaker that's slowly but surely grabbing the attention of Hollywood. Your open letter was a trip....

Well I guess I will just have to content myself with just having seen the play after the review you gave this... I'll save my cash.
