Are you Meeting the Browns this weekend?


So Meet the Browns is officially out in theaters today. A friend and I discussed the whole Tyler Perry reign. Am I supporting the movie because he's black, he asked. I guess my answer would be YES, I know he is truly talented but the fact that he's black does play a major role. This man has brought many of black families together with his plays (can't take another though), and Iwill definitely support the big screen , will you?
I wonder what the soundtrack has in store? Does anyone know of any other screen writers doing their thing, let me know so we can start supporting?

I like the fact that Tyler at least tries to put us in a positive light. All of his plays do NOT translate into movies. Yep I admit, I support because he is African American and let's face it....I get sick of seeing all these damn white movies, some lacking real content, pull in all the dollars. Tyler is trying and he's employing some of our better talent. Now if he could just write a completely new story where it is not a spin off of his plays or not a bunch of my favorite movie scenes all strung together, Tyler would be doing the damn thing.
