The movie Acrimony has to be one of the most hyped movies this year and to put the cherry on top, it’s a Tyler Perry production and who doesn’t love a Tyler Perry movie. I am not freaked about a new movie release so I didn’t see it initially. I was probably among the last set of people to see this movie and what eventually motivated it was the “social media craze” regarding it. So based on popular demand (by friends of course! lol), I decided to review it…

  • Firstly, I do not support an idle man, and that was Robert. He worked on a battery for 18 good years and didn’t deem it fit to get a menial job at least to support his wife. He was also a felon and didn’t see it as an important information to tell Melinda before getting married. It makes me wonder, so what if he eventually got the job, does it mean he would have kept that information hidden?
  • Secondly, there is no doubt that Melinda had anger issues but I also believe her anger was nurtured over the years. Is it from the fact that Robert was just bent on a battery for years, to giving up her life (money, school, house) for him, to eventually seeing the same woman that he cheated on her with. I mean, those are valid reasons to be angry.
  • More so, I feel the decision to divorce was based on the “moment”. Though Robert begged and didn’t want a divorce and her sisters played a part as well, but Robert gave up too easily. It was not just about giving Melinda money and buying the house back; this was a woman who was patient for years and then who eventually let raging emotions get in the way one time, which can happen to anybody. Robert should have waited and resolved the situation, but hey…if they resolved then “Acrimony” wouldn’t be the movie title.
  • A thumb-down to this movie is that mental illness was ignored. I feel Tyler Perry would have taken advantage using Taraji’s character to create an awareness about mental illness. Perhaps! that would have been a positive edge to the movie.

I know the “craze” of this movie has been tiring for some lol, judging from the debates surrounding it. Although, I will like to know what you think in the comment section

  2. “… Robert gave up too easily…”

    How long should he have been pleading for?

    What happens to the new girl who invested in him and helped him eventually fulfill his dreams?

    Melinda was angry, as was her right. Her decision to divorce wasn’t wrong either. But I don’t think he could have done any more than he did after the deal pulled through. He couldn’t go back to his ex-wife as that would have been really unfair to the soon-to-be new wife.

    PS: I’m not supporting his idleness for 18 years, or him hiding his record, or cheating. I’m saying their marriage may have lasted without the influence of her sisters, but he would never have sold that battery and she’ll still resent him deep down for wasting her life.

      I’m glad that we agree on one of the important variables (idleness).
      Thank you for sharing your views.

    Now this is my own opinion, Why didn’t Melinda see the part of guy he was. Even from the start for someone who didn’t have any money, he wasn’t working even while he was in school, he was hellbent on working on his battery.
    Secondly I want to add a suggestion, if he didn’t get rich, would it have been a problem to her, why didn’t she want to take him back when she saw him working the restaurant she was eating with her “newly found boyfriend”. He wasn’t rich so she wasn’t interested.
    Thirdly, you can’t blame him for going back to his to girl he cheated on Melinda with, she brought him out of the gutter, bathed him (literally), and gave him a chance at his life longed dream. Upon everything that happened he was still mature enough to give Melinda 10million dollars and her house back for free (like really guy😢). If he didn’t respect her or love her, he wouldn’t have done all that.
    So I stand for the fact that Melinda was just angry at the wrong person, the people she should’ve been angry with were her simblings. (and I have a problem with the cabin crew that didn’t know when she got into the boat, like really, you guys are professionals and you could see a stranger on the boat wearing a dress )
