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

- By Bossip Staff

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 fact that the Times even considered the film for a proper review is a departure, for they have often relegated Tyler Perry’s films to 300 word summaries done by contributing reviewers.

    Not a positive film for our young black men. We are not a race of killers of our own childrens

    • Bopa

      Maybe young black men should see it so they know what not to be.

    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?

    Do ur research. The film is already a major success at the box office according to early receipts

  • deelucious

    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.

  • Treasure

  • Nita

    YES DEV!!!! YOU COULDN’T HAD SAID IT ANY BETTER! I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU 100%

    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_

      Cant have a rainbow without rain. The lady in red yellow purple etc. Colored girls not the color of skin but the Rainbow

  • Beautiful Mic

    I consider myself as being fairly skeptical of Tyler Perry’s work, especially considering “Meet The Browns” and “House of Payne” – where I don’t like either.

    There was that one film he did, ~1-3 prior to this one, that I DID NOT LIKE, but I do like this film.

  • Bopa

    The cop wasn’t a negative black man.

  • @D_K_C

    whatching it tonight ..tweeting about it later…

  • VanGogh

    theatre not ‘thetre’

  • TARAJI

    I TOTALLY AGREE BLACK FOLKS WOULD BE VERY UPSET IF A WHITE PERSON DID THIS FILM BUT BECAUSE IT WAS TYLER PERRY MOST WILL LET IT SLIDE. SOME OF US ARE SO STUPID..I WILL NOT SUPPORT ANOTHER ONE OF HIS FILMS AGAIN BEHIND THIS MESS. HOW CAN YOU DEPICT NEGATIVE IMAGES WITHOUT TRYING TO RESOLVE THEM. THAT’S SO IRRESPONSIBLE OF HIM

  • TARAJI

    ENOUGH OF HIS DEPICTION IS OF BLACK MEN BEING EVIL AND WOMEN BEING VICTIMS TO THOSE EVIL MEN. HE SHOULD FOCUS ON UPLIFTING OUR COMMUNITY INSTEAD OF FEEDING THIS NEGATIVE STEREOTYPES THAT WE SEE ON THE NIGHTLY NEWS ALREADY.. HE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HIMSELF. WITH ALL THE MONEY HE HAS MADE FROM OUR COMMUNITY YOU WOULD THINK HE WOULD FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE AND TRY TO BUILD ON THAT BUT NOW HE TAKES THIS TACKY ROUTE MOST OF THE TIME. HE MAKES ME ANGRY
