    God gave Tyler a gift, and whether you like it or you don't, you gotta admit he's blessed and is a blessing to many ppl out there who just need sumthing to laugh at for two hours in order to escape this hell of what we call earth.

    Shadow and Act has a lot of haters of Tyler Perry on this site. The good thing is the posters that hate on Tyler are NOT his core audience. I think Tyler has a good business strategy here he's trying to reach a wider audience. I hope this movie succeeds.

    It's never been TP's business strategy that the so-called S&A haters hate on. It's that the brotha has been making a mint, mining in Black pathology where many of us - readers, creators, enthusiasts - have been striving to expand the facets and reach of our stories. Until TP is able to to do that via his more adult film label - and not "turn tricks" with Madea & co. - while maturing his take on the craft, he's open for criticism.

    Ok, damnit! I admit it...I laughed! Lawd, help me! LOL

    Not one second of this trailer amused me. Not one. He just doesn't make fine cinema, but he never pretended to. He doesn't make movies for people like me. But humor is subjective, so if others enjoy it then more power to him.

    My Bad all, I forgot myself for a second and stooped to the troll level. Gotta watch that

    How many top white boy had to dress up like a woman to become famous?I know most of hollywood is gay as fuck.

  • CareyCarey | May 17, 2012 9:41 PMReply

    OOOOOH YEEEEAAAAAH... I will be all up in there on opening night! That's right, me and my baby and my half pint of Remy, we gonna be doing the damn thang. Well, I don't drink -- but if I did -- it would be drink and laughs and stoppin' at the chicken shack on the way home. Shiiiiiit, y'all can have that dry-ass Think Like A Man, this is the real thang. Can I get an Amen. Come on, tell me y'all didn't laugh when Madea said "Come on up, you gonna get a roadmap to heaven, come on up, come on up from there".

  • CareyCarey | May 17, 2012 11:11 PM

    *LOL* that was a good overview on the state of affairs of black men dressing in drag -- but I was trying to talk on the low-low about the movie Albert Nobbs. :-) I was trying to get your opinion on the acting and writing, without letting too much out of the bag. But since you haven't seen it, I guess you can't speak on the performance of Glenn Close and Janet Mcteer? Check this out, my lady didn't even know Janet Mcteer was a women. But again, since you haven't seen it, I think I 'dbetter stop right there. I will say I believe their Oscar nominations were well deserved. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. While I was watching it, I thought of our conversations on black actors in roles played by white actors. Then I just dropped my head... damn, will we ever see writing and acting at that level coming from the faces of people of color? If we did, which actress would have the chops to pull it off, and would they receive the tried & true push-back "look at the roles they give our black women -- maids, hookers, fat babies mommas, crack heads and lesbians... BOYCOTT! "

    Ooooo good point. You mean in terms of the movie itself, the idea of drag or how they did it? See, I don't get all up in arms about dressing in drag. Theatre is theatre, performing is performing. Hell, I've dressed in drag for crazy ass Halloween parties, fake boobs and all LOL I think it's fine, good even. It's normally done for comic effect (Tony Curtis & Jack Lemmon in SOME LIKE IT HOT, Geraldine etc). I think people take offense tho when it's a Black Man doing it because there are the issues, however legitimate, regarding Black Masculinity, the images of Black Women in Popular Media-overly sexualized or Mannish-and to my knowledge in most movies/shows if a Black Man is in drag, he's supposed to really be a woman whereas when actors of other races do it, it's a disguise and we all know it's a man but the other character's aren't in on the gag. And that is a problem, because like a drag queen, it's often an "idealized", over the top personification of feminity. Basically, you're not "being" a woman, you're throwing on the trappings of a woman & saying "This is what I think a Woman is Like", hence the whole Mannish part . That is some bullshit. I think the only fictional movie I've seen where a Black actor dressed in drag for sincere, dramatic effect was TO WONG FOO, and really Wesley wasn't foolin' NOBODY LOL ALBERT NOBBS, yeah I was really mad at myself for not seeing it. I had a digital screener and it expired, because I really like Glenn Close and the movie was interesting. Don't think they had to do that much make up work on her tho LOL That come close to what you asked? I kinda rambled a bit.

    Hey Jug, speaking of killing it -- on a side note -- what did you think of Albert Nobbs, dressing in drag, Glenn Close and Janet Mcteer?

  • Jug | May 17, 2012 9:43 PM

    You've officially killed it with the half pint of Remy LMAO

  • lvfg | May 17, 2012 9:17 PMReply

    lol! It's Tyler Perry.

  • Jug | May 17, 2012 8:59 PMReply

    Okay, watching Tyler's movies is what I'd imagine eating Fried Butter would be like. The thought of it is horrible, it will most certainly kill you but you can't help but enjoy it. I chuckled a bit. And I will now go whip myself in penance.

    "Africant Americant"
