Tyler Perry controversy over his movies

Tyler Perry, named the highest paid man in Hollywood, according to Forbes. His movies and television programs share a positive message.

Yet there are a growing number of critics including Spike Lee, who call these films “buffoonery” saying ‘we can do better’.

What does that mean anyway? I checked, buffoonery means silly behavior, like clowning around.

Perry has said his characters are charming, disarming, and make you laugh bait. These characters share a positive message. They talk about God, love, faith, forgiveness and family.

Critics claim Perry is not crafted in filmmaking. Some say he portrays negative stereotypes. People may not like his portrayal of Madea yet others find his work appealing. So if Perry is not creating movies for the masses, who can say he’s not making good movies.

Personally I like Tyler Perry’s movies. The messages are positive and yet intense. Some of the movies are comedy, some more serious. When Perry releases his next movie, I’ll be there to see it.

Who cares what those critics think. If there is a positive message to be heard, I’m all for it.

Movies like “Why Did I Get Married” and “Why did I Get Married Too” were intense yet the characters portrayed dealt with real-life issues. They were believable.

Hollywood needs more movies like this, the movies that share a positive message.

Instead of watching all the violence that is continually put in front of our children, let’s teach them about faith. They need to see family values, sharing faith and forgiveness.

I give Perry credit. His movies encourage and inspire, and I’m all for that kind of message.
