One question we’ve wondered here on S&A is why all the titles of Tyler Perry’s films have his name in them, as in Tyler Perry’s Temptation (which just opened), Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family, and even a film he didn’t write nor direct – Tina Gordon Chism’s We The Peeples will be released as Tyler Perry Presents Peeples.
I wonder if he’ll ever drop the “Tyler Perry’s” that begins almost all of his titles. It might actually work in his favor. I’d like to watch a Tyler Perry film without knowing beforehand that it’s a Tyler Perry film, because my reactions might actually be a bit different. I think there’s a certain amount of *baggage* that’s automatically assumed, when some of us see his name in front of the title of any film, and we might be taking that *baggage* with us into the theater.
