Tyler Perry is to moviemaking what Adele is to the twerk team, what Nicki Minaj is to operatic singing, and what our beloved Beyoncé is to the Queen’s English.
Yes, he is a shrewd businessman and the manner in which he built champagne dreams off of Chitlin Circuit theater is the stuff of legend, but he is not a great filmmaker. So, even though we readily acknowledge that that Madea reign just won’t let up, if you’re expecting greatness from his latest movie, Tyler Perry’s Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor, you need a refresher on his work. Because Tyler Perry is the worst.
