Mr. Perry has had his share of box office hits. He's taken his one-dimensional, stereotypical I'mastrongblackwomanbutIcanonlyrealizethiswiththelpofaman characters straight to the bank. The strange (or not so strange) thing about this situation is that we know the formula, yet we continue to watch and support every single movie he releases (yes, I have Why Did I Get Married? on DVD). There's nothing profound about the plots, nothing really penetrating about the subject matter; simply put, they're not that deep. So when it was announced that Tyler Perry would be putting his directorial talents to Ntozake Shange's award-winning play, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enuf, people were riled up - from theater enthusiasts, to movie critics, to your everyday movie-goer. They were afraid more than anything. Afraid of Mr. Perry Madea-izing a classic (not using the term loosely) play, leading those unfamiliar with the original piece astray.
I'm a glass half-full kind of girl so when the movie comes out, more than likely, I'll go see it (read: I'll buy the bootleg). I won't watch with a mentality of "See? I told you he'd play us" - but really with an expectancy of substance and dare I say, depth of characters. I mean, Phyicia Rashad's in it! Until then, here's the trailer. Press Play!
Are you looking forward to it? Seemingly more of the same from Tyler? Let me know what you think!
I'm a slave to my Macbook.
