The Vapidness of Tyler Perry

I don't like Tyler Perry.

There's something about his works that grates me. It may be the over-the-top moralism. It may be the insistence that the answer to everything is God. It might be the irritation of yet another movie with a black man dressed up in drag (when it's clear the first two irritations make it clear to me that he'd not be into that culture not one bit.) There's probably a lot of reasons why, but those are the basics.

That said, the brotha found a formula and is sticking to it. And now he's rich. People are sucking this up like Kool-Aid and I can't figure out why.

Educate me please.
