Tyler Perry Was Spotted Out Of A Dress!

Categories: Film


In his new movie, Tyler Perry's Good Deeds!

And it looks as shocking as Pee-wee Herman in a tuxedo!

From the trailer, this one looks pretty serious and at times dour, with none of the wigs, frocks, overheated hijinks, and fun of a Medea flick.

(There are no screenings, so I have to rely on guesswork here.)

Tyler is going for capital-D Drama with a message -- just like he did when he directed For Colored Girls ... -- so he's low-key and earnest as a button-down rich guy who develops "complicated feelings" for a single mom.

You have to admire his attempt at range. Like most film comics, he aims to do Hamlet, albeit his own way.

But can he pull it off, while yanking off the dress?

Do you want to see this attempt at commercialized stretching (which opens this Friday, by the way)?

Do you want to see him at all after his testifying monologue at Whitney's home-going procedure?

And did I tell you it's two hours and nine minutes long, according to one site (111 minutes, according to another)?

Okay, so this movie is about a closeted upper middle class gay man married to a beautiful woman who finds a little girl in a closet, confronts the child's beautiful working-class mother, sets them up in an apartment but doesn't do anything with the mother because he's a closeted gay man, and then he...dances in his fabulous home and still doesn't come out? Is that cute Brian White the shrink that helps him out of the closet or is it Eddie Cibrian?

To paraphrase Patrick Dennis' take on Belle Poitrine's husband/co-star Letch Feeley:

"In masculine attire, he doesn't project."

And remember all the hype about "Colored Girls" and how it was going to be nominated for so many Academy Awards for all those actresses proving their worth and then it was released and .... uhm... crickets.

This guy needs to go to bed with Chris Brown and just be done with each other.

Tyler Perry's Good Deeds? Once they start putting their name in the title, you know they've lost their minds.

"Complicated feelings." Yeah, "I'm supposed to be hot for you, but I'm gay, so it's complicated."

"A little girl in a closet"? Sounds like Miss Perry herself.
