John Amos on Tyler Perry: Director's films are 'uplifting without preaching'

From EURWeb: It became a love fest for Tyler Perry at the press conference for his new film “Madea’s Witness Protection.”

In theaters [currently], his latest effort has Eugene Levy playing a Wall Street investment banker who has been tagged as the head of his company’s mob-backed Ponzi scheme and is forced to relocate with his Connecticut family to Madea’s Atlanta home as part of the federal Witness Protection Program.

During Sunday’s interviews in New York, the cast was asked to compare their experience with Perry to that of other directors.

John Amos, who appears in the film’s obligatory church scene as Pastor Nelson, said the filmmaker “has developed an incredible knack for delivering a message that can be uplifting in comedy, without preaching. You don’t feel like you’re getting beat over the head. The message isn’t getting hammered, but it gets through.”

Fellow veteran actor Doris Roberts, best known for her nine-year run on TV’s “Everybody Loves Raymond,” interrupted the panel to inform us of something Perry did that no other director in her 50-plus years in entertainment business has done.
