Heck yeah its an eye opener.

When my fiance and I were walking out of the theatre, he said, Baby, you will never have to worry about me being unfaithful.

Ha!

Funny how you can think the grass is greener…What I also like is how her husband (ex) still stayed in her life and there was just…acceptance.

@mchitt329:  Okay, interesting article!  And while I don’t believe this was Perry’s intent, I can see why this part was criticized. 

Tyler Perry has this over the top approach.  He is a bit extreme and I think this goes back to him starting off in the theatre.  For instance, with the mother, I think he intended people to see that if you forsake God, it is detrimental.  However, the mother just comes off a tat too intense to encourage anyone being drawn to live her lifestyle as well.  Back to the ‘rape’ scene, again, over the top when he could have simply showed her resisting a bit against the idea but giving in instead of the dramatics.  But I can forgive him because again, I know it’s not his intention (if that makes any sense)? And regardless, the movie still drives home the dynamic that her choices (and his) were terrible and because I think that we all got that, it was a successful venture.

I’m seeing it this weekend with Future Mother-In-Law. Hopefully it’s not a bust!

I have my own bias against Tyler Perry and his style but I may see it on DVD – hopefully Redbox.

@CARA1978:  This. Every single one of his movies, (IMO) can be simplified into “good woman has bad man. Bad man hurts good woman, Madea threatens bad man, good woman meets good, but poor, man and then turns into a butterfly. Bad man loses” or vice versa, like in the case of temptation. The only movie he’s produced that I’ve enjoyed was “For Colored Girls Who Consider Suicide When The Rainbow is Enuf.” Even then it was overly dramatic’ the all star cast is what redeemed it in my eyes. I enjoyed his plays though; I don’t think he’s captured some of the nuances in film making yet.

@NaijaPuertoDorian:  LOL!  You summed it up right there.  I just don’t like the stereotype serpentine black man who’s out to get Little Red Riding Hood.  It’s the same formulaic, predictable non challenging plots – you already know what’s going to happen in the end before it begins.

@mchitt329:  Wow, that is quite interesting.  During this scene, my fiance was whispering to me the very same notion of rape.  I guess I overlooked it because  she gave in to her desire for him.  Mmm…very suggestive though.  Thanks for sharing!

 

@Butterfly6:  I totally agree with you!  TP is over the top but his intention is always to provoke us to think about our actions and the consequences that result.  Some audiences need a “fire and brimstone”, in your face style to get the message…i know I heard him loud and clear!  What do you think about movies with Madea?  In particular the one with Bow Wow playing Byron?  I have to say that after that one, I refuse to support another Madea movie but I will support any of her productions without her.

I finally saw it tonight. It was entertaining but I had low expectations. I figured out the “twist” (if you could call it that) with Brandy’s character as soon as she mentioned she was on the run. Then the ending was so cheesy how he wrapped everything up in like 5 seconds. IDK, it was okay.
