Firstly we are not movie reviewers or anything of that sort and the last time we went to see a movie was December of 2017, we can’t even recall the name of the movie we watched, but it’s one of those family Christmas movies. However, we remember writing about Tyler Perry’s Temptations back when we were with Just Curious we’re basically doing the same thing here.
Acrimony is Tyler Perry’s latest project also his last under Lionsgate Production as he is rumoured to have joined Paramount/Viacom Inc. The movie was released in March/April of this year and grossed over 17 million dollars in the first week of its release. The movie’s total cost of production was 20 million so, we believe the movie did not do too bad.
We hired the Acrimony on BoxOffice because we did not know about the movie until Lebo suggested it as a must see, we could not resist. Lead role is played by Taraji P. Henson who plays a faithful wife (from girlfriend) that gets tired of her husband’s dreams. After losing everything she finally gives up asks for divorce and immediately after the divorce ex husband (Lyriq Brent)’s dream comes to life, he finds another woman and lives the dreams he had with his former wife. Former wife becomes aware of ex husbands success and feels betrayed.
Before we tell you what our thoughts about the movie are let’s first give you the definition of acrimony: When someone or something is bitter or harsh in manner or speech. When a person says mean and hurtful things to someone.
- The movie started on a low for us, very uninteresting and boring.
- The narrations were kind-a annoying, but we got to get used to them they are there through-out the movie so brace yourselves if you haven’t seen the movie yet.
- We also learned that relationships are not perfect; they deserve both parties to work on it.
- Never compromise more of what you can handle for the other person… that leads to bitterness should things not work out.
- Never be in a (romantic) relationship that threatens your relationship with your family.
- People change when they want to, not for other people.
- Stop hoping for better while you’re dealing with trash.
- Second chances are meant to be awarded to us all, but not chance after chance after chance after chance after chance after chance…
- Never be too dependent on the relationship, you have yourself to ultimately rely on and yourself should be the first to take the blame should others fail you for being themselves.
- We feel the husband gave up too easily on the wife after she spent almost 20 years supporting him and his battery dream, but the signs were there from onset that the guy was an opportunist yet u- wife stayed and made excuses for him. Trust your gut, ALWAYS!
- When love is gone, it is gone.
- The husband was good enough to pay back everything to the ex wife, she was compensated with 10 million dollars.
- No amount of money in the world can make-up for emotional damage(s).
- Know your worth and walk away while you’re still intact even if the other person becomes successful when they’re not with you, chances are they were not meant to be successful when (while) with you.
