7 Tyler Perry Projects We’re Looking Forward To Avoiding In 2012

The $130 million that he earned in 2011 will buy him 13 million of this type of sweater vest.  

Tyler Perry’s, the man who won Forbes title of “highest-grossing entertainer” has seven projects slated for 2012, which is pretty typical for the prolific actor/ director/ writer/ giant-black-guy-that-loves-sweaters. This is good news, as it ensures that in the coming year, we’ll be able to participate in one our favorite activities: avoiding and mocking Tyler Perry projects.

Here is a list of his projects in the upcoming year and the reasons that we won’t be watching them.

Good Deeds

If you think that the title Good Deeds isn’t a delicious pun on the lead character’s name, Wesley Deeds, then you just don’t know how TP works. The film follows a successful businessman (Deeds, played by Tyler Perry) as he helps a down on her luck woman, hoping that good deed will spark a change in his life that will allow him become the man he’s always wanted to be.

It also stars, in decreasing order of talent: Thandie Newton, Gabrielle Union, Phylicia Rashad, Rebecca Romijn, and Jamie Kennedy. The film comes out on February 24th, which gives you just enough time to shop for and install a survival shelter.

House of Payne

Make way! Curtis Payne and company are coming back to make us laugh. And if we’re not careful, we just might learn something. The TBS sitcom has actually tackled a number of heavy issues such as religion and drug abuse. Granted it tackles those issues with a heavy hand in a fashion similar to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, but it still tackles them.

The most recent season, season 7, contained a whopping 50 episodes. You might be asking yourself, “How does Tyler Perry produce one season of television packed with 50 high-quality episodes?”

The answer is, “He doesn’t.”
