Tyler Perry talks about latest movie, ‘The Family That Preys’


Tyler Perry fans were already pumped as they arrived at a local theater for a free preview screening of "Tyler Perry's The Family That Preys." They didn't expect to also get Tyler Perry himself.

The tall author, playwright and director, relaxed in a Yankees baseball cap, joked and took questions from the audience. 

"The critics have never been kind to me, but I don't care," he told the crowd at Regal Richmond Town Square in Richmond Heights recently. "You are the best advertisement there is."

Word-of-mouth praise has made Perry's movies box-office champs, proving black filmgoers are hungry to see their own stories told on film. Since his first feature film, 2005's "Diary of a Mad Black Woman," debuted at No. 1 at the box office, Perry has found more commercial success with his ensuing films -- "Madea's Family Reunion," "Daddy's Little Girls" and 2007's "Why Did I Get Married?"

His latest comedy-drama, "Tyler Perry's The Family That Preys," opens Sept. 12.
