Let me start by saying that no matter what I feel about a Tyler Perry
movie, I will most likely see them all anyway, just because he provides employment opportunities for Blacks in Hollywood. So Kudos TP! *clap for ‘em*
However, Good Deeds was a sorry sack of shizznit! (Yeah… I said it.)
As I wrote in THIS POST which featured the “Good Deeds” official trailer, I didn’t know if Perry would be able to make a role as the romantic leading man believable… and unfortunately I was right.

Atlanta welcomed President Barack Obama
as he arrived for a campaign fundraiser hosted by Tyler Perry
last Friday evening (March 16, 2012).
Perry held an event at his Tyler Perry Studios, located on Greenbriar Parkway in Atlanta, where ticket prices ranged from $250 to $10,000.
Hundreds of Obama supporters lined the streets of my old southwest Atlanta stomping grounds for hours as they waited for a glimpse of the president and/or any other notable celebs.
Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, U.S. Representatives John Lewis, David Scott, Hank Johnson and Sanford Bishop, along with Rev. Joseph Lowery were among the 1,000 people who attended.

‘s Good Deed’s movie’s not even out yet and someone has already staged a protest about the mega producer/screenwriter/director/actor’s leading man debut
And by “protest” I mean they vandalized TP’s brand new billboard with a message… (the nerve!)
Dang… didn’t he just bring Madea outta retirement? What more do you people want from him?!*sigh*

Bump whatcha heard… Tyler Perry hasn’t given up on Madea, his grey haired money maker. In fact, she’s alive and well and once she gets her new wig in the mail, she’ll be back better than ever!
Critics have long prayed for the day that Madea would be a distant memory, and while Perry grew tired of Madea’s moo-moo’s back in 2010, she was revived a year later in the film “One Big Happy Family”.
When Tyler found a woman to love and began speaking of marriage & kids, hell even I thought it was lights out for the pistol packin’ granny! And after TP cast himself as leading man in his newest film, “Good Deeds,” whoodathought he’d EVER do drag again?

Well guess what? Madea ain’t dead yet! In fact… she was simply “retired,” but as long as there’s a wig out there to fit TP’s big head, Madea still has a job! Hallelu-yerrrr!
