    I am always ambivalent whenever a new Tyler Perry/ Madea product comes out.

    The repulsion aspects are:
    1. They are formulaic. Bad guy hurts woman and a light-skinned, blue collar guy comes and saves her.
    2. There are some kids that are "bad" and Madea gives them a spanking or threatens them, and they come around.
    3. The lines and story are elementary.

    The attraction aspects are:
    1. Black people are getting work in Hollywood.
    2. The fact that Tyler Perry has built something so large, and put Atlanta on the map for film and television.
    3. There are some funny parts and things that I can relate to in it.

    What are your thoughts? Another poster mentioned a Madea movie, and it got me thinking.

    Me and my friends watch Tyler Perry/Madea movies simply to laugh our asses off at Madea herself. The serious parts can be interesting, if a bit heavy, but their heaviness is what makes Madea's parts really shine and cause us to laugh so much icon_smile.gif.

    While I strongly respect his ability to put so many of my folks to work, the humor in his productions stopped resonating with me long ago. Between Madea, the Paynes and the Browns his productions are Amos & Andy updated - minstrel slap stick. I'm jaded in the respect that I've never been fond of the sit-com genre. To add the bad images that our kids see makes me turn away from it.

    Whatever hilarity the stage versions had got lost when the films were made. "Madea Goes To Jail" was a painful experience. I'll probably watch the new one online though partially because Romeo's in it.

    bro, i am going to have to disagree with you on that one. tyler's movies always have a message in it and the fact that madea is such a character is because you can find that in just about any family whether it be black, white or latin. i enjoy his movies and occasionally like watching the paynes. now meet the browns is another story but the movies he produces have all been pretty good movies. none of them were great but they were good movies with a message.
