I Met Tyler Perry Last Night

October 3, 2007

I received a pass to attend the premier of Tyler Perry‘s new movie “Why Did I Get Married” from my church this past Sunday.  The performance was for Tuesday, October 2, 2007 at 7:00 PM.  I arrived shortly before 6:30 PM and it was a madhouse.  The crowd was overflowing and it soon became clear that I was going to have some trouble getting in.  Not only does Tyler Perry get great support in Chicago, but he was supposed to show up to introduce the movie.  I wanted to see the movie, meet Tyler, and give him a copy of my book, “101 Ways To Glorify God Today“.  As it turned out, I was not able to get in, but as I was leaving the theater, Tyler’ s limo pulled up he hopped out with about 5 security guards and proceeded to go in a back entrance to the theater.  I yelled out to him that I had a book to give him and he motioned to me to come over.  I was able to give him a signed copy of the book, but I was not able to take a picture with him.

I understand that he and the cast of the movie are supposed to be on Oprah today.  I’ll have to check that out.  I wanted to give you a review of the movie, but I’ll have to wait for it to come out like everybody else.  I do predict that it will be the number one movie for that weekend.  Not only does he make great movies and plays, but he has Janet Jackson, Jill Scott, Malik Yoba, Michael Jai White, and Tyler Perry himself in this movie.  I’m sure there’s something in it for everyone, married or single.  I’ll let you know once I check it out.
