Warning:
Homophobic slurs

That was really convoluted and probably unsuitable to mainstream audiences. However, very interesting. They accidently invent ...what appears to be time travel using quantum mechanics. They duplicate themselves instead of valuables.

They need someone from human resources to iron this out though.

Goldmine of quotes
"I loved you on purpose".
"A lover I made too much room for".

Everyone should see this. I didn't know this was Tyler Perry (who I dispise) until just this minute. I can't imagine why he decided to get involved with this film. It sounds nothing like him/Is good. It's a really weird situation, because people who like Tyler Perry movies enjoy crass humour and generally making a spectical of/ridiculing black people. Those people won't like this film, because it's compelling instead of entertaining. Conversely, the people who like compelling dramas about the human condition hate Tyler Perry movies because they aren't 9 year olds anymore. Why is Tyler Perry over here in our yard. Seriously. But it looks like a bait-and-switch, and they're attracting the wrong crowd, and turning off the people who would probably love it. This story has through him relatively unscathed, and is a film adaptation of the ...uh.. theatrical poem? ..performance piece "for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf" 1975.

Haha, even Oprah was horrified by the idea of Tyler Perry tampering with such an iconic feminist piece.

I LOVE the outbursts of poetry. This is a power piece about feminism and the wide range impacts that misogyny has on the lives of very different women. Violence in the very-different lives of several women of colour.

Recommended.
