"Tyler Perry's Temptation" is ostensibly a serious-minded offering from the one-man filmmaking empire — it contains nothing in the way of broad slapstick and his infamous Madea character is nowhere to be seen — but you wouldn't know that based on the reaction that it got from the audience that I saw it with.Even though they were presumably there because of a genuine interest in seeing it and not simply out of professional obligation, the combination of shameless melodramatics and ham-fisted moralizing inspired more laughs from that audience than most straightforward comedies of recent vintage.This questionnaire catches the interest of Harley (Robbie Jones), a potential new client for the firm who is described as "the third biggest social media inventor since Zuckerberg." He asks Judith to use her insight into the human condition to help put together a software program with the power of a thousand "Cosmo" quizzes.Oh yeah, Harley is also filthy rich and extra-hunky and before long, it becomes clear that his interest in Judith is more than professional, especially when he learn that Brice is the only man she has ever been with.Kimberley has always had a taste for the high life, but she works hard too, launching her swimwear brand back in 2013 that she's regularly seen sporting.
They'd run with the joke and make the scene funny and in turn, better. That's not the only way the writing got to me last night. When Curtis sees his nephew's son with a tutu around his neck he runs to pray because he thinks the boy is gay. Spout out any Bible verses you want, it is what it is. That's an awfully polarizing thing to have on a show that, according to the show's defenders, is for the community.
Tyler Perry's films have been a roller-coaster for a non-fan like myself.
I believe his pictures almost demand the audience to have ability to relate too its characters on screen, and if you don't, then you've demolished one of the crucial ways of being able to like the film as a whole.
Not even because of his acting, mainly because the jokes are so bad that if you try to sell it you'll easily oversell it. The writing, the directing, the acting, the blocking, the camera work, the editing.
Throughout the entire show I noticed how something was getting in the way of the storytelling and the jokes. The crowd noise was used inappropriately and sometimes the wrong crowd noise was used.
