  1. I loved the play of I can do bad.. and am looking forward to the movie. I am also eager about the sequel. I am not so crazy about his Madea movies as I am about his dramas that he puts out.

  2. Kudos to Tyler. Yes, his Madea plays/films are formulaic but they make money & they’re funny. As we all know, it is all about the mighty dollar in business. I love this fact that this brother is “running his business”. I hope he’s done his due diligence— I read somewhere that Lionsgate is in trouble.

  3. Tyler Perry is brilliant and its good to see him get the respect he deserves. Just think about all the people he is putting to work!

  4. I concur with the other comments written about Mr. Tyler “Big Money” Perry! I appreciate the excellent example that he’s setting, and the new page in our history that he’s carving out for all of us. One of these days, I might just go ahead and get inspired and try it too!
