The Family That Preys Review


Weak
Tyler Perry is trying. Instead of sticking exclusively to the urban morality plays that made him a certified superstar, he appears to be broadening his niche-based appeal. And he's doing so by taking risks both in and outside the medium. Sure, most of his movies have been nothing more than mere translations of his theatrical works, but efforts like Daddy's Little Girls, and now The Family That Preys, show an artist who is at least endeavoring to expand his horizons.

Alice Pratt (Alfre Woodard) and Charlotte Cartwright (Kathy Bates) have been friends for over 30 years. The former runs a small diner. The latter is the CEO of a local construction company. Alice has two daughters -- snooty career gal Andrea (Sanaa Lathan) and honest, hardworking Pam (Taraji P. Henson). Charlotte has a conniving son named William (Cole Hauser) who cheats on his wife Jillian (KaDee Strickland). After marrying the decent Chris (Rockmond Dunbar), Andrea begins a torrid affair with her boss -- who happens to be William. He wants to take over for his aging mother, believing it is his birthright. In the meantime, a new employee (Robin Givens) stirs things up for the adulterous duo. Soon, all the simmering secrets in the Pratt and Cartwright households will be out in the open.

Dirty Laundry Review


OK
What is Dirty Laundry? It's Soul Food plus In & Out as if directed by Tyler Perry. As a large, loud, funny, small-town African-American family comes to terms with the closeted gay man in their midst, there's plenty of laughter, recriminations, and tears to go around. It's a jam-packed 100 minutes, never earth-shattering, but certainly not boring.

Upscale New York magazine writer Patrick (Rockmond Dunbar) finds his comfortable life interrupted when Gabriel (Aaron Grady Shaw), the ten-year-old son he didn't know he had, shows up unescorted at his door. With no other choice, Patrick takes the boy back to his southern hometown, where he is something of a prodigal son, having basically abandoned his family in order to live life as a gay man in the big city. His chain-smoking force-of-nature mother Evelyn (Loretta Devine) isn't exactly happy to see him, and neither is his sister Jackie (Terri J. Vaughn) or his jealous brother Eugene (writer/director Maurice Jamal). They feel betrayed by him and haven't yet accepted his homosexuality. Eugene, for one, is prone to calling Patrick "fancy," a code word for everything he hates about this guy who used to be his brother.

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang Review


Extraordinary
When Shane Black wrote the screenplay for 1996's The Long Kiss Goodnight, he broke his own record as the highest paid screenwriter in Hollywood. Then, just as suddenly as he had burst onto the scene (with the Lethal Weapon screenplay), he dropped off the industry radar. Now, almost 10 years later, he returns as a writer/director with Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, combining the best elements of his earlier scripts with a post-modern twist.

Robert Downey Jr plays Harry Lockhart, a two-bit thief mistaken for an actor and flown out to Hollywood to star in a big-budget film. He's assigned a private eye named Gay Perry (Val Kilmer) to teach him how to act tough. His first night in town he meets Harmony (Michelle Monaghan), a childhood friend who's come to Tinseltown to make it as an actress. Soon all three find themselves involved in murder cases reminiscent of the detective novels with which Harry and Harmony grew up.
