Tyler Perry racked in $21.5 million this weekend with his movie "Why Did I Get Married". Tyler Perry has had a pretty successful run so far in the movie business. But why don't you hear terms like 'oscar buzz' associated with him? And where is his NAACP awards? I could be wrong on the NAACP thing, but really Tyler with the help of the black community, especially sisters is kicking some serious butt!

I would really be interested in hearing people's thoughts about Tyler Perry in general. I must confess that I have only seen one Tyler Perry product, Madea's Family Reunion, and that was under duress. I had real problems with what I perceived to be less than one dimensional caricatures of African Americans. I have refrained from watching anything else associated with Perry's name. I realize that his work is popular, but that does not necessarily mean that it is good. Am I missing something?
