Tyler Perry’s Next Bad Thing

Oh, Tyler Perry, you make it too damn easy. So his new movie is coming out next month. Its title speaks volumes. Because it’s volumes fucking long. I Can Do Bad All By Myself. Pretty catchy, right?

So what’s the perfect website for a movie with a title that’s seven words long? ICanDoBadAllByMyselfMovie.com? No. It’s so much better than that.


Yes, Mr. Perry, yes you can. You can do bad movie. You seem to do bad movie every four to six weeks. Most people can’t even get a bad haircut with that frequency.

To be clear, I haven’t seen any preview screening of this highly anticipated film. But I have read the synopsis. And it’s brilliantly dreadful. Try to keep up.

When Madea catches sixteen-year-old Jennifer and her two younger brothers looting her home, she decides to take matters into her own hands and delivers the young delinquents to the only relative they have: their aunt April. A heavy-drinking nightclub singer who lives off of Raymond, her married boyfriend, April wants nothing to do with the kids. But her attitude begins to change when Sandino, a handsome Mexican immigrant looking for work, moves into April’s basement room. Making amends for his own troubled past, Sandino challenges April to open her heart. And April soon realizes she must make the biggest choice of her life: between her old ways with Raymond and the new possibilities of family, faith … and even true love.

If you dare to IMDb, be aware that this is the second T-Per release called I Can Do Bad All By Myself. In 2002 a DVD came out of the original stage version of ICDBABM. Don’t worry, apparently you can see both and get two completely different stories. At least he kept the ellipses…

Playwright Tyler Perry plays Madea, the matriarch in this filmed version of Perry’s hit play. Madea’s niece, Vianne, has been handed a curve ball by life: Her husband seems ready to flee the marriage, and little does she know that he’s actually seeing her sister. When Madea falls ill, the secrets surface, tearing everyone apart. Vianne’s faith tells her to accept the chain of events and move on, but letting go isn’t easy. …

Seriously, Tyler Perry, you’re just making it way too easy. It’s not even fun anymore.
