i don’t know who tyler perry has been around in his past,
or maybe current,
but his characters in his productions are rather “interesting”.
i kinda see why church folks love them so much.
it’s often a mirror to their internal ratchet ness.
you know the church vixens can go from zero to “hoodrat” if provoked.
so last night i was sent a copy of a tyler perry production called “acrimony”.
it starred taraji p. henson and lyric bent.
the foxhole has been asking for me to watch it.
i’ve gotten a few emails about wanting my thoughts on it.
this was my first thought (spoiler heavy)….
so the movie was about a vixen named “malinda” (played by taraji).
she met this wolf named robert (lyric) at their college.
they got into a relationship and he turned out to be a no good jackal.
typical tyler shenanigans,
but with a twist that made absolutely no sense to me.
this is where the spoilers come in…
malinda was stupid af.
she stood by and married a wolf who she saw had potential.
she kept using her money to support him.
as soon as she was broke and fed up,
like after a lot of times of his nonsense,
she was pushed by friends and family to leave.
the marriage was over,
but he ended up getting rich off his potential.
he ended up paying her back in monetary blessings.
i’m confused as to why she went crazy?
this is where the whole “borderline personality disorder” came in.
something that was randomly “thrown in”.
she is the one who told him to leave in the first place.
after taking a jeep and knocking over HIS TRAILER for cheating…
…after buying him a car,
that would have been the end of that.
she may have had bpd,
but this story screamed “bitter psycho ex” to me.
not to mention,
the ending was a complete disaster.
that was it????????
i was laughing so loud,
you would’ve thought it was a comedy.
i’ve come to realize that i like the “tyler perry movie experience”.
i enjoy the “talking back to screen” and “bad acting wolf meat”,
but i can’t get with the actual movies.
the only good things was:
lyric’s tail shots
that fight that started in the living room and ended on the lawn
devon (played by jay hunter)
kendrick cross and that upper bawdy in his shirts
all the black actors/actresses who tried
…now you may enjoy it more than i did,
and this is strictly just my opinion,
but it was a hard pass for me.
lowkey: am i the only one who thinks lyric bent is sexy af?
i been checking for him since “saw”…
he’s in a movie called “gringo” that i enjoyed.
