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,

    Haters......always will be those who attempt to shoot down one`s efforts, but there`s One who`s eternally cheering you on. Alex Cross will do well beyond what you`ll ever imagine. God knows the heart so if you are true to yourself, get ready for that shining moment that`s right beyond the horizon~Karyn. PS: God bless you Tyler.

    I will always support your work! You are humble and a giver so blessings cannot help but to fall on you. I will go to see this movie and I have no doubt you killed it!

    Hi Tyler, I think people are accustomed to familiarities and Madea is certainly one of those that you fans enjoy the most. I think you are multi-talented and capable of doing anything, scriptures support that too : I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." RIGHT? I think your mom would have propably encouraged you in that fashion or that light. People are just accustomed to familarities, JUST PROVE YOU CAN DO THIS AS WELL.

    Remember what you told us, Don't let anyone define you. God already defined us as his, and that's all we need to know. The movie is going to do great, because we (ALL YOUR FOLLOWERS), are all having DATE night tonight, Saturday, and Sunday. As you like to say, We are going to BLOW Hollywood away. "lol" We are not going to let them put you or us in a box, because we ain't dead yet. See everybody at the MOVIES!!!

    I'm a big fan of Tyler Perry and believe he and Jean Reno did an admirable job, in spite of a poorly conceived, wooden, and badly written script. I think if Perry can get someone better in any subsequent Alex Cross film to write & produce it, it would be definitely better.

    Sitting at the movie theater and waiting for Alex Cross to start ! Lots of love from Fresno ....:-)

    I love your warm smile on the cover of essences magazine, and page 113 brought the depth in YOUR EYES that I know... after watching I can do bad myself play and you step out after the play and introduce yourself to your audience the depth in your eyes are the same...so that is the tyler perry we all know...alex cross film just simply CONFIRM it for the world who doubted you..I LOVE YOU..any mother would be proud of you for breaking through and reaching back to the hood, disparity, and injustice to people through your writing...I've been (pro se) litigant in my case since 2008...and visiting your inspiration corner has help alot...it made me feel like someone understands the MADEA inside of me and the man I would like to marry one day.. AND YOU KEEP WRITING ABOUT ME. It is change because we never meet...i have not seen the movie as i write this comment.......I just do not care about the single bachelor in essence magazine...I want to ask you to consider a date with me I'm single.
