I think his movies are ok for what they are, but I notice that this man and his movies/plays get A LOT of hate thrown towards them.

Cause Madea is dumb and him trying to replace Morgan Freeman as Alex Cross is sad. Plus he's worth tons of money.

It's mostly because he makes movies that perpetuate the stereotypes of ignorance and violence in the black community. He's making blackface movies, except that the actors are actually blacks.

He gets paid wayyy too much for the mediocore crap he puts out.

Because he can't take any critism of himself. When The Boondocks did an episode poking fun at him, he complained to Turner Broadcasting executives, and threatened to "re-evaluate his relationship with the company." In other words, he threatened to pull his crappy shows, because he can't take a joke.

No. He gets paid exactly what he earns, not too much.

I honestly haven't seen a show that's more cringe-worthy than House of Payne. It's excruciating. I don't know how anyone could possible find his material funny.

+1 to The Boondocks. That's the only black humor show I find funny. I'm not a huge fan or anything, but from the stuff I've seen, show's awesome. I think one episode the kids and some other dudes were planning to kidnap Oprah at a Barnes and Noble bookstore. But they dropped in the bookstore next to it, Borders. It was hilarious.

I don't hate him, he seems like an ok guy. But he seems like he is making his movies/shows for only black people, and some of them seem stereotypical to me. I don't know why he just can't make a movie as a movie.

I don't care what ethnicity the actors are, that doesn't even cross my mind.Black, white, asian etc....I'm fine with anything. But why not just make a movie as a movie without any racial preference to it?

EDIT:However that being said some of his movies do have a good message to them, like someone mentioned "Why did I get married". I think that movie portrays a more realistic version of marriage and the challenges that come from it.

I don't mind him. He doesn't seem like he's all that bad. And I did enjoy his movies and plays earlier on. But now they're just starting to get old. They are all more or less the same now. He should branch out and do some other types of movies.

I agree, that is the exact problem I have with him, he reuses the same stuff over and over. You can pretty much predict how his movies are going to end in the opening credits.

because his movies and shows are just cookie cutter garbage. The fact that they make so much says alot about the people that watch them and enjoy them~

seriously...you have to have incredibly low standards to like any of his crap~

Because he's a traitor to his own gender. I swear all of his movies have some sort of anti-male message in them. Oh yeah and the guy tries way too hard with the drama. God the movie "For Colored Girls" was just umbearable. The first hour was nothing more than a long drawn out dramatic hyperbole and the second hour was just a trainwreck of random monologues. He should at least stick to making comedies and stop trying to shoe-horn drama into his comedies like with the Madea movies. I don't give a fvck about some bimbo who got trolled by her ex husband or some chicken head who became a hooker cause some dudes ran train on her in college. I came to see the comedic antics of the stereotypical angry, sassy, black caricature not some sappy pity case.

TL: DR:

HIS MOVIES SUCK!

Is he really? Yes. Why? Because it makes him money. Because of the Madea character? Try asking a real question in the form of a full sentence. This one makes no sense.

He only makes movies about drama in relationships. When he starts directing some action and horror flicks I'll reconsider my opinion of him. Besides dressing up as an old lady has gotten very stale.

Well, I guess now he keeps repeating the same stuff. I mean I thought Diary of a Mad Black Woman was okay at first but the fact he had to throw her in like almost every movie he makes is just uncreative? My family loves his movies though so I guess it helps me a bit on what they want for Christmas. :P

The weird thing about this is that when I went to wal-mart. I saw an "urban" section where they sell dvds. All the movies in the urban section are Tyler Perry movies.

Exactly. He's movies are aimed at a christian audience very much the same way his plays were before. If you don't like it, then don't watch it sheesh.

I don't hate him. His films are extremely basic though with a touch of black culture added to make up for the lack of complexity. I have no issues with his success although I think his acting lead debut was a stinker.
