I know some of y’all complain about Tyler Perry‘s movies…but I, for one am a diehard fan. I still have all my bootleg copies of his old plays that I bought at the beauty shop (wassup Shonda). Sorry Tyler! As Oprah says…”when you know better you do better” I’ll make sure to buy this one when it comes out… Anywhoo, his next feature film “Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes To Jail” looks like it will be a good one to see. Here’s the summary I received yesterday:
After a high-speed freeway chase puts Madea (Tyler Perry) in front of the judge, her reprieve is short-lived as anger management issues get the best of her and land her in jail. A gleeful Joe (Tyler Perry) couldn’t be happier at Madea‘s misfortune. But Madea‘s eccentric family members the Browns (David and Tamala Mann) rally behind her, lending their special “country” brand of support. Meanwhile, Assistant District Attorney Joshua Hardaway (Derek Luke) is on the fast track to career success. But Hardaway lands a case too personal to handle – defending young prostitute and former drug addict Candace Washington (Keisha Knight Pulliam)—and asks his fiancé and fellow ADA Linda Holmes (Ion Overman) to fill in on his behalf. When Candace ends up in jail,Madea befriends the young woman, protecting her in a “motherly” way as only Madea can.
Tyler Perry (pictured above with date, actress Gelila Bekele) kicked off the grand opening of his 200,000 sq. foot/30 acre Tyler Perry Studios facility in southwest Atlanta Saturday night. The formal affair attracted thousands of who’s who as local celebs rubbed elbows with worldwide stars.
Hollywood legends Sidney Poitier, Cicely Tyson, Ruby Dee and Louis Gossett Jr. gathered with Oprah Winfrey, Hank and Billye Aaron, Andrew and Carolyn Young, Will Smith, Barry Bonds and others to celebrate the first major television and movie studio owned and run by an African-American film producer.
Oscar winner Sidney Poiter christened the studio’s opening as several members of the writer’s guild picketed outside.
I saw this trailer the other day when I went to see The Family That Preys. Preys was a great movie and I hate to admit it but I cried. Yes…me. Anyway, TP has given up the afro wig and traded it back for Madea’s golden locks. Y’all know you miss Madea! No matter what you say about it, you’re going to see it anyway. So stop complaining and just give Tyler all your money…
Tyler Perry hit up the Conan O’Brian show the other night and discussed being homeless, the bootlegging problem and more. Tyler revealed that he recently bought Oprah a car because she was so instrumental in his life and also discussed why it’s hard for him to get a date these days.
Tyler Perry hit up Good Morning America and discussed his anticipated film, “The Family That Preys.” He also talks about his 39th birthday that’s coming up next week. Well….in case I forget ‘Happy Birthday Tyler!!!” The film features Alfie Woodard, Sanaa Lathan, Kathy Bates and more. I plan to see Friday at lunchtime in case anyone wants to join me… Check out the trailer under the cut: Continue Reading…
