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,

    I definitely want to see it - and I discovered your work this week. I'd honestly never really noticed it before - and then I saw you on the Colbert show, and I recognized real prayer from a man with real faith. My husband and I dove into your site, and your Inspirational Corner was more powerful to us than we can possibly express - especially since I'm an indie author trying to make it against crazy odds, and my mother passed away in June. Thank you for always keeping the focus where it belongs: JESUS.

    There're always peoples that will critique what you do. But when you work with our savior Jesus Chris, you can do anything. I believe Alex Cross was exactly the type of move you needed to do, phenomenal work.

    Hello Tyler: Congrats on the movie, Alex Cross. I saw the movie, last night 7:30 pm show. Went with three family members. Great fight scene, the theater was packed. When movie was over, the theater erupted in a applause, and chants of "Tyler, Tyler". Congrats again. Great movie, Action from beginning to end.

    Hi Tyler, I went out to see Alex Cross on the first night of its showing. You did a fabulous job. Not only did you do it and prove all of the critics wrong but you soared. It was absolutely phenomenal. I had absolutely no doubt that you would do it. You are very talented as well as gifted. Continue to keep God first and foremost in your life and He will withhold no good thing from you. The Bible says that "He withholds no good thing from those who walk upright. Be blessed and thank you for bringing great entertainment to TV. Jeanette

    Hi Tyler, I'm a huge movie lover, and go to the cinemas at least twice a week. I have seen the previews for Alex Cross and am so excited, I can't wait for it to start here in Australia. I overheard some guy in the cinema asking who the lead was for Alex Cross and I called out "Tyler Perry, he's awesome." I watched Morgan Freeman's adaptation of Alex Cross in Along Came a Spider and he is a brilliant actor, but I think that you will fill his shoes perfectly. Well done, and I'll definitely leave a comment once I watch the movie in Sydney. It's due to start here in the next couple of weeks. All the best Tyler, I'm sure this will be a box office hit. Carmel


    I am a big fan of James Patterson Alex Cross detective series. I've read the series from beginning to Cross Fire. You did an amazing job. The killer was sureal very scary. Loved loved loved the movie from beginning to end. I knew which book the movies was from even though I read it years ago. This is # 15 your like wine your get better with age.

    Tyler I just want to say that u did the d*** thang. That was one of the best crime drama movies I ever did see. I most say that my boyfriend was skeptical& thought the movie was going to be a "corny", but I reassured him & said since it's Tyler Perry, it's going to be good, we'll it was better than good, but it was phenomenal, one that I can watch over & over & not get bored. Job well done, Tyler

    Tyler I'd like to start off by offering-up a most sincere and grande apology to you; but first and foremost, me and my daughter went to see you today and YOU WERE A-W-E-S-O-M-E! The genre was not pure thriller but seemed to be a mixture of drama and thriller (with a little side of humor), but none-the-less you were pretty amazing! Your wife was beautiful (and did a terrific performance at the dinner table that night--wow). Ms. Tyson was classic and classy as ever, and your Antagonist made me believe. I wanted him for you! Lol! Looks like you all did have a great/fun time and that is so cool! And as usual, I am so-oooo proud of and happy for you! (eye wink & a smile) Now, for my apology...You once said that maybe we are hidden on purpose. And while I don't like that answer, I somehow believe that it's true. I'm presently working towards an Associates of Applied Science in Filmmaking degree. I won't stop seeking you (or submitting my resumes) and I won't stop believing in God for answered prayers and I won't stop dreaming! I trust that like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., President Barak Obama, Michael Jackson and so many other "Greats" (including you), that we are all placed here for a reason/for a season in time, such as this, to do great and worthy things for the Kingdom! We don't live for ourselves, but selflessly for others. You do 'give' back and we know it! Lastly, thanks for always giving me (us) something to look forward too! <3 We 'DO' need you! ;-) DON'T STOP!!! I hope that you knock'em out the box at the box office this weekend!!! ~With Kindest and Warmest Regards.

    Tyler I just went and saw your movie Alex Cross. Omg! It was a good movie. Your acting was excellent! It was truly a suspense movie which I love. The whole cast was good too. I'm hoping you will do more like that. I believe this movie will open doors for you to do more broader range of movies. Love you always a fan forever!
