User Review

Possibly the most touching film ever made about a black guy in a fatsuit.

Rating:


Tyler Perry has really outdone himself this time, making the deep
artistic statement "I'm black, and I have a fatsuit." Sure, this
statement has been made before by Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence, and
others, but Perry adds a certain panache to the blackness and the fat
suit that makes this more than just a movie about a black guy in a fat
suit: it is THE movie about a black guy in a fat suit.

There may be other movies out there which you are tempted to see:
"Slumdog Millionaire" may have won several acadmey awards, but where's
the black guy in the fatsuit? How is that a movie? Tyler Perry
continues to push the boundaries of artistic excellence with drag AND a
fat suit, and we can only hope some day he decides to throw bad accents
and white face into the mix.
