Why Did I Get Married, Too? Not Nearly As Hilarious As The Original
Imagine if Precious had a sequel that brought back all you favorite characters -- Precious, her mom, Mrs. Weiss, Cornrows, Nurse John, and the rest -- only this time around, it isn't another harrowing story about a beaten-down soul who finds unlikely redemption in an inner-city classroom. Rather, they'd reunited for a wacky road trip aboard a runaway bingo bus in search of $1 million in buried bank-robber loot! And it's called It's a Precious, Precious, Precious, Precious World. Sound good? No? It sounds like an utterly ridiculous departure in tonality and subject matter from what made the first Precious so successful?
Well, then you obviously know nothing about the New Rules of Serialization, as they exist in the House of Perry. While hanging out in his crawlspace sanctum all those years ago, its future legendary mother Tyler Perry devised some pretty radical notions about genre-hopping within a single franchise. Theory is now put into practice, as a blithe, ensemble comedy exploring the subject of (100% heterosexual, fully recognized in all 50 states and by the Heavenly Savior Above) marriage has come back as a tropical thriller in which Janet Jackson might or might not be the notorious Bahamian Cabana Killer.
The Verdict: No more drama.
