Tyler Perry’s upcoming film version of I Can Do Bad All by Myself is scheduled for a Sept 2009 release. I have to admit, I’m not exactly enthused. Sure Tyler is a tremendous talent and has become a formidable powerhouse in his own right but the thought of watching another movie featuring him as Madea doesn’t impress me anymore. I am looking forward to seeing Ms. Taraji P. Henson do her sassy thang in her second role in Perry’s films. I can’t wait to witness Mary J. Blige in her first big screen role. I’m even itching to seeing Gladys Knight and hope that she bellows a tune or two. But I don’t want to see Madea anymore. It’s Boring Boo!
Yes, Eddie Murphy has done it before in a few films and Martin Lawerence had his go at it too. Each has portrayed women characters and made huge profits off of it. Since his film debut in 2006, Tyler Perry has graced us with the Madea character in five films. It may not seem like a lot to some but I beg to differ. How many laughs will you get with Madea wilding out when she doesn’t get her way? Is it really funny when she slurs her words? How many of her relatives need her intervention for it to be enough? Its time to put Madea to rest. Do you feel me?
