Critics Consensus

Tyler Perry's Acrimony might be of interest to hardcore Tyler Perry fans, but all other viewers are advised to make time for another Fatal Attraction screening instead.

Acrimony | Rotten Tomatoes (1) J. R. Jones Chicago Reader The movie has enough blinding anger to pull you along, and Perry plays around with one's sympathies by making Henson's character increasingly monstrous, but the pallid dialogue is a constant drag on the story. Mar 5, 2020 Full Review Acrimony | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Roxana Hadadi Pajiba Acrimony is presented with a typical filmmaking choice or an absurd one, it goes with the latter. May 7, 2018 Full Review Acrimony | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Ben Sachs Chicago Reader It's all very entertaining and dumb, the posh settings pushing the drama further into the realm of escapist fantasy. Apr 5, 2018 Full Review Acrimony | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Ronak Kotecha The Times of India It's engaging the way Tyler takes us through the lives of his characters. And in the end, it's an oddly satisfying feeling to be left wondering, who really is the victim here Rated: 3/5 Feb 1, 2022 Full Review Acrimony | Rotten Tomatoes (5) John Manuel Arias Mediaversity Reviews "Perry is infamous in his treatment of LGBTQ people, especially gay Black men." Rated: D Nov 27, 2021 Full Review Acrimony | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Matt Cipolla Film Monthly Two hours of . . . lazy filmmaking and tired, harmful stereotypes against women and the mentally ill, all wearing a thin sheen of imposter silk to pass itself off as a cautionary tale. Rated: 1/5 Jul 24, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

Donpreyel M Brilliant and culturally untethered (if one can clear his/her filters). It is rare that I give 5 stars to any movie. Though this movie started with a mild momentum, I think it did a wonderful job of setting the atmosphere as to why the title Acrimony was relevant. It is also apparent that both critics and general movie goers watched this movie with a culturally and in some cases, a gender biased mind. On one hand the Africentrics as well as the few Afri-sensitives are rooting for TP to produce quality film work, a relatable story line, and dynamic theatrics. On the other hand there are many non Afrocentrics who don't relate to the cultural significance and or the gender characterizations. Reading the reviews reminds me that our world has a long way to go as to understanding each other and why we write what we write, dance how we dance, and sing how we sing etc. 95% of that I know who have watched this film have given it 5 stars. So, in my world the movie was a success but in the broader world of critics it has fallen under the scrutiny of those who may not understand its' relevance. Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 09/06/23 Full Review Dr Ugbede Victor A Was captivating. Robert is a perfect gentleman, and to be honest, he was caught between two hard choices. At times you need your ex to smoothen things out for you but, it could ruin up things. His ex was at the right place at the right time. Sadly, Melinda is a true lover, providing support but the "business" part of Robert needed more than Melinda's love and financial support. Getting back to her after his battery invention hits, was the sweetest part. Sadly, Melinda killed herself. Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Michael G Forget the critics on this one. They got it wrong . It's nothing like fatal attraction.It's a good watch with an excellent cast and a feeling of uneasiness throughout the whole movie .Recommend Rated 3.5/5 Stars • Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member A tale of 2 halves. 1st half of the movie you sympathize with her. 2nd halve you sympathize with him. Rated 3.5/5 Stars • Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/30/22 Full Review Kevin A This is an excellent movie, with many twists and turns that keep you constantly wondering how much can, or should you love someone. Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/20/22 Full Review Da Homiee A Scandalous fatal attraction like theme. Malinda becomes aggressively angered by her husbands betrayal. Perry keeps you interested and on your toes... Rated 3.5/5 Stars • Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/18/22 Full Review Read all reviews
