Admittedly, I am not a huge fan of most of Tyler Perry’s work. However, I have mad respect for how he built his brand and bought his studio, as well as how he opens doors for Black and Brown people in the industry.
He wrote this movie almost 30 years ago and it looks and feels differently than any of his other work. And, Terence Blanchard and Debbie Allen were involved too?
Oh yeah, I’ll be watching. ~V
