How Will Reviews of ‘For Colored Girls’ Impact The Box Office?

- By Bossip Staff Categories: News, The Atlanta Post

How will “For Colored Girls” fair upon its release this weekend? Interestingly enough, Tyler Perry, the filmmaker that everyone loves to hate, is getting mixed reviews from unexpected places. For the first time in Tyler Perry history, his film has been been branded a “critic’s pick” in the New York Times. One of The Times‘ toughest critics, Manohla Dargis,  gave the film a favorable review.

    The depiction of Black men was very bad, and The Times’ review has no signicficane when it comes to Black films. What do thy know, or understand for that matter?

    I’ve only seen one of his films. I was unimpressed. It was an unrealistic, overly religious, Black man bashing fairy tale.
    And I’m a Black female saying this so that’s when you know lol

    But I’ll give this film a chance.

    Tyler Should have stayed WITH the COLORS of the rainbow. The audience who had never heard of the poet would have provoked THINKING. The title FOR COLORED GIRLS WHO HAVE CONSIDERED SUICIDE WHEN THE RAINBOW WAS ENUF. THE COLORS OF THE RAINBOW.. EACH character a color an emotion a color of the rainbow.

    • EnvyMe_u do_
