Tyler Perry Has Had A Rough 12 Days, Would Like it if You Saw ‘Good Deeds’

Tyler Perry’s “Good Deeds” has just hit theaters and the director would really appreciate it if you went to see it. Perry wrote a blog post this week telling his fans that he’s had a rough 12 days and he really wants you to see his new movie.

Perry writes on Tylerperry.com:

“’ll keep this short and sweet because it’s been a rough 12 days for me, with what would have been my mother’s 67th birthday one day and the awful news about Whitney the next. I can’t even think about it… we’ll talk about that some other time, but for now I just want to be sure you’re planning on going to the movie theaters to see GOOD DEEDS this weekend.”

Perry, who was close to Whitney Houston, spoke at the late singer’s funeral last weekend. Perry said:

“There are two constants that I know about Whitney Houston. There was a grace that carried, a grace that carried her down from heaven through Miss Cissy Houston, a grace that brought her up through singing.”

Tyler Perry’s new movie, “Good Deeds” has received mixed reviews. On Rotten Tomatoes, critics have the movie scored below 30% while fans have given the movie a 90% rating. Here’s the trailer for “Good Deeds.”

What do you think of Tyler Perry’s plea to fans? Is he exploiting Whitney Houston’s death? Or is this a heartfelt plea to fans to see his movie?
