THE PLOT THUS FAR
One lesson to learn in life: you can’t scorn a woman and think you’ve achieved an accomplishment. It never works out! Anita Lincoln is a very successful, modern day, single woman living with all the luxury items available. She thrives in life having a great job and lots of friends. She also takes care of family, especially her younger sister, Mona, and Grandma Hattie. Mona has found true love and is getting married, totally funded by her sister, Anita. But there is just one thing with Anita, she wants a loving man in her life to fill a void. That’s when Jasmine, her best friend and work associate, comes in.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman Scorned” is the latest filmed version of a Tyler Perry play. Anita wants to find a man in her life, but she keeps getting brought down by her family. Now, it’s time for her to ditch that zero and get with a hero. A hero that can help her get to pound town. But, I thought Tyler Perry made plays about good Christian women and Family Values? Well, the guy also knows what sells.
Tyler Perry’s stage productions turn into something weird when captured on film. The productions target a very specific audience and then the DVD releases work to reach out to the groups that wouldn’t dare slide into certain theaters in certain urban areas. I’ve discussed this before on prior releases, but the weird cognitive split going on here is fascinating as hell to me. Does the lack of the base audience make the material far more approachable to suburban audiences? There are a ton of political issues going on here.
The DVD comes with a Digital Copy and interviews as the special features. The A/V Quality is strong enough. Still, the transfer has no depth. The Dolby 5.1 track is supportive. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to fans and Sam Strange.
