  1. Tyler keeps the sistas working. Somehow I knew Robin would end up in one of his movies. Good for her she is a great actress who never quite got back on track after marrying Tyson.

  2. I love Taraji. :brownsista: Congrats to Robin on getting another movie role.

  3. This is going to be good. Looks like a great cast.

  4. This movie is not going to do well. Tyler Perry fans aren’t going to want to see this movie cause it appears they are trying to pander to the White audience now. Trying to bring them into mix as if his Black fan base isn’t good enough all of a sudden. I give this a :thumbsdown:

  5. Yeah good for Robin she need to do something to make money on her own other than thru MIKE. :lol2:

    Sorry it took a day to reply, but it’s Kelly Rowland! :brownsista: This beautiful brown sista has no problem making goofy faces. 😆 Or letting the camera catch her unawares. :brownsista:

  7. I like Robin Givens and she deserves more credit. I just hate the fact that she looks so sad sometimes 🙁

  8. I understand that a lot of people love Tyler Perry’s work and whatnot, but his stuff is coming out one after another too fast if you ask me. My family loves his work, but even they are like “Eh, I’ll see it when I see it.”

  9. I wish other directors would take a hint and start seeing how successful his movies are and start moving in the direction of making quality movies. That movie that Gabby and Morris put out at Christmas time was just horrible -the writing the acting everything and I couldn’t believe they felt as long as they put two of our favorite actors on screen that we will watch it…that movie did not do well at all….

    I think Robin is ok, but for some reason I have never liked her…but I can’t wait to see Rockmund back on the screen…I love how Tyler keeps using different black actresses to put them out there like Angela Bassett. Now I can’t wait for him to work with Nia Long its her turn to get in on one of those movies and there is so many others I can name but I applaud him for trying to keep putting out so many movies to keep our actors employed with quality.

    I am glad the remake of Raisin in the Sun did well, even though Diddy could not touch Sidney the rest of the cast was phenomenal….*loves it*
