Tyler Perry's Acrimony Reviews

March 5, 2020
The movie has enough blinding anger to pull you along, and Perry plays around with one's sympathies by making Henson's character increasingly monstrous, but the pallid dialogue is a constant drag on the story.

Acrimony is presented with a typical filmmaking choice or an absurd one, it goes with the latter.

It's all very entertaining and dumb, the posh settings pushing the drama further into the realm of escapist fantasy.

[Tyler] Perry implies that not only does she belong there, but she forged every link in her chains.

Despite all its Fatal Attraction-style trappings, Acrimony is a bloated drama at odds with itself and its characters. Who exactly are we supposed to root for here?

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 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.

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.
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.
