Meet the Browns

Like previous Tyler Perry movies, Meet the Browns was not screened for critics — at least not in the U.S. Philip Marchand of the Toronto Star either attended a press screening or a preview not intended for the likes of himself. “Viewers at the screening I attended laughed uproariously” at one of the character’s malapropisms, he writes. “To this hilarity I remained indifferent,” he added, “and [also] to Perry’s manipulation of plot for maximum emotional effect.” Nevertheless, he concludes, “It would take a stony critic, however, to dismiss entirely the movie’s tribute to the virtues of perseverance and generosity.”
