Tyler Perry’s…Saving Lions Gate?

June 4, 2009


He was never going to be a one hit wonder.

Tyler Perry’s Tyler Perry is giving some serious buck bangs for Lionsgate Entertainment.


See that?  That’s Tyler Perry’s Tyler Perry movies blowing up the box offices.

I can honestly say that I enjoy Tyler Perry’s Tyler Perry films.  The are great “Sat Mat [My own personal term meaning ‘Saturday Matinee’]” movies.  They do have very Southern humor and style, some of which are foreign to me, as I am not Southern, but I work with it.

I am more a fan of his films than the  TV shows, nevertheless Tyler Perry sticks his name, Tyler Perry, all over his work like a forgetful guy might label all of his DVD’s with his name, just so people know who they belong to.

No harm, John Carpenter did it, too…except, I don’t remember John Carpenter’s: Halloween.  Maybe he started labeling his movies when he made (the original and only one I’ll watch) John Carpenter’s: The Fog.

According to sources Tyler Perry’s “Madea Goes to Jail,” which grossed $89.2 million in Lions Gate’s fourth quarter. If only Tyler Perry could make two or three movies every quarter Lions Gate Entertainment might be profitable already.   Source
