The new Tyler Perry drama/thriller, Acrimony, was released Friday March 30, 2018 and was a hit. Tyler Perry created a remarkably film about a faithful wife (Taraji P. Henson) tired of standing by her devious husband (Lyriq Bent) is enraged when it becomes clear she has been betrayed by her husband of eighteen years. Henson plays a wife with exotic rage when her and her husband of 18 years get a divorce and he marries somebody else. The big plot twist in this film is Henson had spend her entire trust fund her mother left her on her husband to invest in his dream job. Ocne Henson and Bent got a divorce, Bent’s career jumps off and he gets a $80 million deal. With them being divorced and Bent being engaged, he shares his earning with his new soon to be wife.

This endless, crushingly serious drama explores a disintegrating marriage between two shallow, selfish partners, and then, for its ridiculous third act, it turns into an awful thriller. Writer/director Tyler Perry’s Acrimony may have a highbrow-sounding title, but it nevertheless aims for the lowest common denominator. It has nothing to say except that people are pretty much fundamentally awful, and there’s nothing to be done about it. Robert is a parasite who passively aggressively sucks the life out of Melinda, and she’s a hateful, miserable woman, bent only on her own satisfaction.

Spending any time with these two would be a trial, but Perry asks us to sit for a full, painful two hours. Robert eventually makes a gesture that seems to come from genuine regret and kindness, but it doesn’t go far as the ludicrous plot mechanisms kick in for the brain-dead finale. Henson is a fine actor, and she seems to have worked hard here, as have some of her co-stars, but unfortunately, their efforts are wasted in a movie that may leave viewers feeling hopeless and lousy. Not even the occasional music of Nina Simone helps to add any heart or soul.
