I hasten to mention that Perry is NOT one of my favourite directors, but I couldn't think of a more appropriate place for this thread. Could someone please explain the deal with this guy? He seems to churn out movies with the speed that the Beatles released LPs. He appears to play a large amount of the characters himself, ala Eddie Murphy in The Nutty Professor. I saw one of his Madea pictures once - it wasn't funny, it wasn't inept enough to be entertaining on an Ed Wood level, it left an indefinable bad taste in my mouth - in short it had no obvious appeal. I have yet to encounter anybody outside of this message board who's even heard of the man, and I'm not sure his films are even distributed in the cinemas in my country. Who's the audience for this crap?
