I’m just going to jump right in this quick movie review.
Anyway, was it a bad movie? Good Lord yes! Was it Tyler Perry’s fault? Good Lord NO!
Now I’m not the typical crab in the barrel type black person. I don’t see the point in or the need in tearing Tyler Perry down and blaming him for the lack of quality black films. I happen to like Tyler and what he’s done in his career. I will not be the typical black person and try to tear him down. As my mentor would say you don’t have to tear a person down so that you can shine.
But anyway, lets talk about this horrid movie!
First of all what the hell was James Patterson thinking!?
Oh I know he was thinking about the dolla dolla bills y’all!
More specifically (or pacifically for the ebonic speaking folks out there) GM’s money!
When I first heard they moved the story to Detroit (the entire series is based in DC) I was angry and confused.
Well until I saw GM all up in through the movie. From the sexy ass caddy the villain was driving, to the proposed new Detroit Downtown that had GM as the center of it. Even the parked cars were GM cars.
Watching this movie was like watching a really bad Lifetime movie!
Everyone’s acting was bad in this movie. EVERYONE! Even Cicely Tyson couldn’t do right in this movie.
The truly sad part about it is how butchered the storyline is, James Patterson should be ashamed of himself for doing this to his own book series. It was just sad and you could tell it was all about the money. He didn’t give 2 damns or 3 fuggs about the integrity of the books.
When we (my niece and I) walked out of the theater we both said the only good thing about this movie was the car Matthew Fox drove. Lawd that Cadillac was so damn sexy! I’d eff the ish out of that car!
Anyway, how was your weekend?
