Hm...doesn't seem like it has enough Tyler Perry.

WTF was he doing in Star Trek anyway? He's just suddenly there for some reason. And he doesn't mug for the camera and doesn't mention once that he's Tyler Perry. Did he try out for Uhura and forgot his wig or something?

Unless he's got the "Wild Things" version of Denise Richards, forget it. That photo of her in the article makes her look like she's having the worst cramps ever.

Eugene Levy?? Pass.

I really don't get the Tyler Perry hate He seems like a genuinely nice guy. Yea sure his movies can be formulaic, preachy, and are not everyone's cup of tea but I just can't be shiatty at this man for busting his ass to go from being homeless to being worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Like him or not, he is a self made man and he didn't rob or cheat anyone else to get where he is. He found a demographic that was largely ignored and underrepresented by the entertainment industry as a whole and he catered to them and gave them something they apparently wanted to see. So what if he slaps his name on everything he makes or casts himself in every movie he produces. It's no different than Drew Curtis' Fark.com. While people are biatching about his characters and story lines and cracking jokes about his self placement in his plays and movies, he's laughing all the way to the bank with more money than most here will ever see in their lifetime.

Why doesn't he break down and just do the big Hollywood remake of Mama's Family? He's already got the crossdressing part down.

I don't get why Eugene Levy is hilarious to black people. But maybe I don't remember a little film called Kung Fu U.

Does anyone know if Tyler Perry is it?
 
2012-01-29 11:10:17 AM
In all seriousness, who is he? I've a vague idea he puts out a series of self-promoting movies and such, based on the comments.

He's a guy who has made a string of lucrative movies, produces a few TV shows and owns a large studio in Atlanta. And a nice guy. His products are not to everyone's taste, but appeals to an audience that consumes his product.

Denise Richards and Eugene Levy. Masters of the Michael Caine school of accepting roles.

hulk hogan meat shoes: She played a nuclear psychiatrist in a James Bong movie; I think she can handle Tyler Perry


GAH! I loathe that movie. Freaking hate it more than any of the Roger Moore movies. Aside from the whole Denise Richards as nuclear physicist (Unless she was talking to the bombs to keep them from exploding. I hate typos, too.), it was horribly plotted, roughly paced, even for a Bond movie, and had the WORST last line in the history of the series.

When I saw the first episode of the new season, I was disappointed and worried that the show had lost its mojo, but that cameo and the other recent developments have more than made up for it. Kudos to Denise for laughing at herself.

Well let's not over state things here. Some of those Roger Moore movies were pretty farking horrible. That redneck sheriff and inflatable black guy, Jaws in Moonraker, Moonraker in general, etc. The World is Not Enough wasn't even the worst Brosnan Bond. WTF was up with Die Another Day? The idea that Bond was captured and disavowed by MI6 was cool but starting with Madonna's opening song it just devolved into shiat.

I didn't even think The World is Not Enough was that bad. Okay so Denise Richards didn't pull off the nuclear psychoanalysist. Did you not also doubt Dr. Goodhead's credentials? It had decent action, a pretty good pair of villains and a sexy opening song by Shirley Manson. And it didn't have an invisible car or guys with diamonds stuck in his face or Asians turning into Caucasians.

People don't hate Tyler Perry, people just see his name all over the place and have no idea who the hell he is and why they should care, because he puts his name all over the place. It's kinda like M Night Shamalam used to do, cept he actually had a movie people heard of and liked before he did it

Because Tyler Perry is now a brand name, not just a person. And that brand name brings people in. Makes it easier to sell his latest project.

Who ever said they hate they guy? You can hate a person's body of work and everything it represents without hating the person. Maybe if I was black I might hate him because the minstrel show he puts on comes off as degrading but I'm not black. When you make the Wayans Brothers look like Richard Pryor by comparison, maybe you could stand to take a look at what you're doing, no matter how much money you're making.

I don't hate the guy. What you consider a minstrel show actually sells to blacks, because it can, in an exaggerated manner, show common experiences. Judging by my Hispanic inlaws, his work has a broader appeal than just blacks.

To be fair, if it weren't for the credits, I'd never know there was more than one black actor in any film.

I hate Tyler Perry because he's a hack writer/director. Him being successful just makes it worst...

And I guess I'm TECHNICALLY the intended audience, but I also have more than half a brain, so it doesn't appeal to me.

IMHO, if you are middle class or above, you are not the intended audience.

Tyler Perry is the Spielberg of the ignorant black comedy, stuff that makes American Pie and the Friedberg/Seltzer works look like Oscar bait. I'm surprised Spike Lee doesn't hate on him more often than he has.

My only beef with Tyler Perry is that he's colorist. His male villains are almost always darker skinned than the good guys are. Even before the plot is introduced, you can predict who's good and who's bad by the actor's skin tone.
