    While many of Tyler Perry's films and television shows aren't that great, I respect him a lot. His work ethic is insane and what he does for the community is also commendable. I mean he gives a lot of black actors other opportunities to be in feature films and television shows that might not have the chance other wise. Plus his film studio in Atlanta is very impressive. I will say I enjoy the Madea character in small doses and out of all his films, I think Diary of a Mad Black Woman, I can Do Bad All By Myself, Madea Big Happy Family, to be entertaining and have decent messages. But Madea/ Tyler Perry movies (at least originally) were firmly targeted towards black people/ black Christians. So if you don't fall into that group, I could see how his films and stuff would turn you off or not interest you. Though now a lot of his films and television shows are aimed at a wider audience.

    can someone argue that most of Tyler Perry's whole body of work is built on black stereotypes?

    i think madea content of any setting kind of fits with the showtime brand, or maybe cinemax

    maybe in 20 years they can fall into the ironic bad watch fests like "The Room" or 70s-80s horror B-movies, although bad comedy is harder to overcome than bad drama or bad action

    also tyler perry was good in that star trek movie

    I think tyler perrys non comdy movie's are really funny and are at least entertaining I think acrimony is one of he's best but he probably didn't mean it to be a comedy....

    Small role; he was a Starfleet admiral in the 2009 J.J. Abrams film.

    No one said you didnít have the right to say they are terrible, but itís seems odd and unprofessional for a critic to be on this type of forum.

    I think it's more that your posts don't come across as polished or professional so tacking it onto your critique just comes across as trying to give your opinions more weight than they actually have.

    I don't think I did? luprki was saying something like no one is making you watch Madea I replied with a joke that it's my job to watch stuff so someone kinda is making me watch it. For real what's the problem it's a off the cuff comment that has no effect on anything but for some reason is a big deal to you guys.....

    You did, it's literally there in your post.

    As to why it's being called out: because one it doesn't match with your posting style, and two because it's an often used tactic of intellectually dishonest people which when taken together makes it necessary to call out.
