They Think I Can't Do it!

There are a lot of people who think I can't do this. There are also a lot of people who think you won't show up because I'm not playing Madea. There are also a lot of people who are working overtime to try to discourage you from seeing Alex Cross as they do with all of my films... I'm hoping you'll prove them all wrong.

Can you believe we've done this 15 times? I gotta tell you, I'm so hoping you are planning on going out to see Alex Cross this weekend. I have never been more excited for you to see me do something. This is totally different for me. I loved it and I think you're going to love it too. You know that the opening weekend is how you're judged in Hollywood. So if you can, please try to get out this weekend. Be sure to check your ticket stubs to make certain they say "Alex Cross" and whatever you do, drop me a message to let me know what you thought. I love to sit by the message board and read your comments. You're the real critics. And judging from what I read on the board from those of you who went to last night's late night shows, you loved it too. TELL SOMEBODY... LOL

I know you may not know this, but there is a lot riding on this film. This is the first time that I have ever been considered for a role like this. Hollywood has never even offered it to me. I've done my best and I've done all I can. It's in your hands now.

I feel like a little kid in church about to do my first solo! :-)

Take someone with you if you can. This is an experience that should be shared.

Tom Joyner has "take a loved one to the doctor day"... Well today is "take a doubter to the movie day".

Alex Cross in theaters RIGHT NOW!!!

I love you guys so much. Thanks for all you've done for me, my employees and their families.

Be blessed,

    Tyler, Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your work. It is so honest.

    Tyler, you are just amazing! And u did an excellent job in Alex Cross. And we don't care about ppl trying to discourage ppl from seeing your movies/work. The ones who are to be there will be there. I be wanting a theater to myself! When I'm watching u. You think that's selfish? Whatever! :-) I still want my theater to myself when I'm watching your work T! You on the other hand wanna go in there & see how ppl are responding to your work. Like u doing in Diary of a Mad black woman on the church service part & Family Reunion at the entrance of the wedding. You were just cheesing. :-) That's why I call u adorable T! I don't know why they called it the dark side of you, when it came down to Alex Cross! Whatever! We already know u are good T! You have many sides to you. :-)

    As a single mom you could never imagine mentally a child's mindset. I woke up one morning and my daughter had placed a note by my bed stating "Mom thank you for everything I love you even though my dad is not here with us. I pray that I'll always be by your side forever more." No matter how many times your status changes God will place you where he sees fit. Don't be discouraged over one hiccup in life turn it into a Step Up and Step out on Faith God will never place something on your shoulders that you can't bear.

    Keep up the good work! And believe it or not I prefer you with this JOB...lol! Just looking at your plays and movies its a lot to digest its so realistic. Sometimes the things that you have built in you will profit you in a way to tell a story, so the next individual will know that "No Matter what the situation is You Can Do It Inspite Of. Everyone has a story to tell and some are deeper than others. A real story brings pain in your heart and tears to your eyes with just listening no questions asked. I'm ready!

    I have watch and loved all you movies. Matter of fact I am enjoying one right now.i dont know why but there is always somthing I can relate to. I know you may probably never personally read this, but I just want to say thank you. I would also like you to pray with me where ever you are. I work so hard to get ahead. I will gratuating from college January 25,2013 but I will probably be homeless if I dont get the money to pay my rent..life is funny. I go to work everyday and noone knows how much I struggle or h** sometimes I would rather be dead then to deal with this struggle. I try to be positve because I know someone is going through something worst than me. Im 34 years old and I have always been independent,but im tiredof being the strong one. The one that everyone depends on,but when I need something no one can help me. I thank god all the time for how far he has brought me but I dont know what to do. Now on top of all that my nephew comes to me and tells me he blanksout and when he does he sees himself dying. What does that mean what do I do. I told him to pray and I would see about getting him counsling but is that enough. Please pray for me

  • Denise Baltimore

    I loved u in Alex Cross it was nice to see u be yourself and serious iI still love Madea too but this movie kept u on the edge of your seat and the scene you had with your daughter was heart touching but when you ask your mother to step aside i just knew it was about to go down keep up the great work u are doing. I also love the play I don't want to do wrong

  • Frances Allen Birmingham,Ala

    I love Alex Cross Tyler Perry play a good part n that.

  • Jonathan Coy Huntingdon, TN

    HAHAHA wow. People think you can't make it? You've already made it. You have proved to the whole world that you CAN do anything you put your mind to. Your tv station is going to work out fine. Better than fine, perfect. Every work you have done has been amazing and has changed lives in the positive direction. Keep it up. Don't ever let anyone bring you down because for every hater you have, you have multiple fans.

    I have only skimmed through some of these comments and of course have to include my own. Tyler, you are beyond talented. Your intelligence and creativity shines through BRIGHTLY in all of your ventures. Though Madea never stops making me laugh, she is merely one of your many talents, but doesn't define all of you, only a small part. The fact that you are capable of diversifying yourself speaks volumes for who you are as an entertainer. I just watched Good Deeds and, well, fell in love with you all over again. I cannot get to the theater to see Alex Cross fast enough. I have no doubt that you will impress all over again. FACT! I believe in and appreciate you. There is NO ONE like you in your industry. Keep it coming Tyler!! :) Sandra

Like whatever Simon Cowell is talking about when he says that...lol! Dude IT is all over you and oozes from you in everything you do or touch! I love seeing you be a "serious business I shoot you up" man and the best "telling you like it is while shooting you up" Madaea...hahaha!! I just love the talent you have shared with us Tyler..."IT"...is amazing grace to walk in the shoes you have walked in Tyler. God has smiled on you so never allow the critics keep your heart from smiling! I am grateful and honored I get to be apart of a huge team blessing you. Push, expand, if God is not finished don't you dare tell him no!!! Much Love
