I wonder if they’ll shorten the movie title? It is so long! haha

Wow she looks sooooo pretty!! I’m so happy to see her do more acting!

I LOVE her hair – that style really suits her. She is so sexy.

Man does she look exactly like Michael in that picture

This movie is based on a famous black play of the same title. It was revolutionary as it was one of the first serious plays about black women. That said, I think Tyler Perry will ruin this movie and I think the cast is awful. This is a gut wrenching play and I love Janet but she nor any of the other starlets in this will do it justice. Tyler Perry is a mysoginist and he will ruin this. How sad. By the way, LOVE Janet’s new short hair.

Actually, Whoopi and Anika are great. And maybe Phylicia too. But I just don’t see Janet doing such a play about poor women but then again maybe she will pull from Michael’s death to give it the punch. Tyler Perry is awful. Why do people let him direct anything???? He is a narcissist in-the-closet woman hater and you can tell by his AWFUL films. Ok, ranting done. lol.

They can’t shorten the title. This play was a classic. It’s like the Streetcar Named Desire of black theater. I took an African-American studies class – well a few actually – and learned about this play. Google it. You can’t shorten this title. People will go for the title alone. it is one of the quintessential dramatic works in African-American history and why Tyler Perry is the worst person to do anything with this. He is garbage.

@happy girl: Why don’t you STFU? Do you know that Tyler Perry grew up very poor and with severe abuse from his father and at one point was even homeless? Give him a break! He seems like a smart & strong man that has overcome his adversity. He also makes huge donations to homeless shelters, food for the hungry, and children’s charities. So take your head out of your ass before you go around insulting people!

Mj’s death obviously took a toll on Janet. Her American Idol performance creeped me out. She looked and sounded like Michael.

@A: Do you know that Tyler Perry is an egomaniac who is really mean to his employees and was sued by a Writers’ Union for not paying his peope by the books? Do you know in every of his films, he plays a buffoon that dates back to Amos and Andy and really ugly stereotypes of his race of people?Do you know that in every of his films his spews his Christian ideas down people’s throats yet does not live up to those ideas? Do you know that in every of his films, the women are either the fat unwanted woman or the bitchy woman or the heathen woman as he would put in and in his films are downright insulting to black women – his own women? Since when does growing up poor and being abused gives anyonen the right to rehash insulting stereotypes, mistreat workers and make victims out of women? The sad thing people go to see his films because I think that is all they expect from his race. The fact that his films do so well and not more intelligent films speaks to a sick and twisted relationship Hollywood has with black people. And you just showed your juvenile simplicity by attacking me personally in your post. Do some research on Tyler “gay” Perry and find out some things you may not know before you go attacking people you simpleton imbecile.

@A: Yeah Perry is so giving and charitable.but yet did not have the decency to give writers health insurance and union pay. Here is an article for you to refresh yoru memory. He is a hypocrite:
