An attempt at "Fatal Attraction," but the clumsy writing and slow pace prove lethal.

What was Tyler Perry going for here?

The 20 or so minutes we get of Henson's rage are not enough to warrant the title or the ticket price.

Tyler Perry's Acrimony, presumably titled to set it apart from your acrimony or mine, will make you angry for wasting the talents of Taraji P. Hensen on a hack job unworthy of her talent talent and your money.

This endless, crushingly serious drama explores a disintegrating marriage between two shallow, selfish partners, and then, for its ridiculous third act, it turns into an awful thriller.
March 30, 2018
A film that's absolutely dreadful from start to finish, and makes the worst soap opera you can imagine look Oscar-worthy in comparison. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, Nudity, etc. - also Available)

Perry prefers to burn every inch of dramatic possibility to the ground, once again creating an episode of television for the multiplex.

This isn't the deepest plot, but compared to the usual saints-vs.-sinners tales that Perry has offered up over the course of 19 feature films he's written, Acrimony takes us to whole new levels of complexity.

The film's mangled final act does not mean that Acrimony is without merit. The acting is fantastic, the idea is solid, and there are undoubtedly various themes surrounding relationships and mental health to be discussed and considered.
March 30, 2018
In addition to endorsing the logic that keeps spouses Stockholm syndrome'd in bad marriages, "Acrimony" also offers poor economic advice.

Taraji P. Henson deserves better.

Ambitious and deeply flawed, Acrimony may appeal to hardcore fans of The Room-it's not every day a melodrama comes along that's this fun precisely because it never takes itself seriously.
March 30, 2018
So ridiculously overwrought that it makes the Madea films look subtle by comparison.
March 30, 2018
A ludicrously scattershot drama in which overwrought feminine rage, diary-of-a-mad-woman craziness, and inept filmmaking are all but inseparable.
