Infinitely more captivating for its outrageous ungainliness than a great many more proficient filmmakers have ever been able to manage.

Dismissed by critics but embraced by African-American audiences, Tyler Perry now opens his pictures without press previews, but on the basis of this expert melodrama he might want to reconsider.

The cast is likable, and Perry makes good use of the Atlanta locations.

Perry's habit of reducing drama to verbal sermons is the main thing keeping his movies within the realm of daytime TV.

Yes, it's true that Tyler Perry's movies are mostly formualaic. Yes, it's true that Tyler Perry isn't the finest director in the world. But it's also true that Tyler Perry is getting better.

Love can transcend class lines; in Tyler Perry's universe, it also defies all rules of the legal system -- and logic.

Jenny and Joe don't help to make a case for the "good men" and "strong women" they seem to oppose. They only drag everyone down.

Even when Perry doesn't dress up like a woman, he's pretty much a drag.

Cottage-industry independent filmmaker Tyler Perry fumbles with this family drama about Monty (Idris Elba), a salt-of-the-earth car mechanic and father of three girls trying to win a custody battle with his lowlife ex-wife.

The movie reaches the heights of melodrama with narrative cliches that border on the surreal.

Tyler Perry, the man behind Madea's Family Reunion, is not a subtle filmmaker. But Perry's stories can be emotionally effective.

While its look at interclass romance among African-Americans and the struggles of a working-class single father is fresh and vital, the heavy-handed execution isn't.

Tyler Perry's latest conspicuously lacks his drag clad alter ego Madea %u2014 the star of his earlier hits Diary of a Mad Black Woman and Madea's Family Reunion %u2014 but it manages to be a drag nonetheless.

Perry enters into the arena of soap opera with a melodrama that often makes little sense, content to luxuriate in its heart-tugging suds without offering much in the way of logic.
