Tyler Perry's "I Can Do Bad All By Myself" in Theater's Now!

I am so excited to review Tyler Perry's latest movie adaptation from his series of plays. The big screen version of "I Can Do Bad All By Myself" will literally make you laugh, cry, sometimes all at the same time! I can really appreciate his writing style and his ability to recreate his own masterpiece into a similar yet very different tale. *Spoiler Alert* Contrary to the play version, the lead female character is not a drugged-out mother living with a pimp, but rather an Aunt of a teenaged niece and 2 young nephews whose crack-addicted mother has passed away over a year ago and now their primary caregiver, their grandmother, is missing no where to be found! They arrive on their Aunt's doorstep after they failed to break in on none other than Mabel "Madea" Simmons home, who surprisingly feels bad for the children, and decides to take them to their nearest relative instead of the police. There's lots more than I can say, but let's make this clear, this movie may have a lot of cameos by various singers, but this is truly an all-star cast when it comes to acting. In addition to a powerful performance by the talented Taraji P. Henson, be sure to check out leading man Adam Rodriguez, and moving cameos by Gladys Knight, Mary J. Blige and Marvin Winans. One of the best performances came from Brian White of "Stomp the Yard" fame! He gave a very convincing performance as the main antagonist in the film, much different from his boy-next door and teen\young adult characters he's played in the past. Yes folks, Tyler Perry has done it again, so be sure to check out a screening at your local theater, and be sure to extra tissues with! Old and young, male and female will truly be affected by these performances and the message from this movie. Overall it will make you appreciate your family even more so and help open communication about some very serious subjects that are often kept quiet in many families.
