New studio contract, same ol' Tyler Perry.

When Tiffany is not around [Nobody's Fool] falls into the same formula...it doesn't really resonate. The writing was kind of weak.

I respect Tyler Perry's hustle, but this mess...I wouldn't spend a damn coin seeing this, and I'm still mad.

I'm getting a headache from this movie.

Ostensibly, this is the tale of someone learning to find beauty and grace in life's imperfections, but the filmmaker consistently gets too distracted by low-hanging jokes to deservedly convince us why that's a commendable goal.

I still think Perry, who has made 18 feature films, will eventually make his masterpiece of American cinema. This is far from it.

The first eighty minutes of Nobody's Fool finds Perry at his raggedy, crowd pleasing best. The final twenty minutes highlight some of the worst work of his career.

Even with all of Haddish's hard work, she still can't clean up the mess she's landed in.
November 2, 2018
Nobody's Fool wastes its comic goodwill and performances by wallowing in the same tired story elements Tyler Perry has been milking on TV and in his movies for decade.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

One really bad movie, folks. Don't be a fool and waste your time and money on it. (Full Content Review for Parents - Sex, Profanity, Nudity, etc. - also Available)

Haddish should know better than to go into business with Tyler Perry.

Given that this is the auteur's 20th theatrical feature film, there's no longer any excuse for the pacing issues, the scenes that don't end and the general flaccidness of his direction.
November 3, 2018
Too much of "Nobody's Fool" makes do with well-worn exchanges and contrived, overheard conversations.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

When Haddish is not lighting up the screen with her over-the-top antics, what's left is just a predictable, poorly-plotted, Tyler Perry morality play.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

It eventually dissolves into the usual Perry morass, where nobody onscreen is behaving like a real person and you spend the last half-hour tapping your foot impatiently while making the "move it along" motion with your hand.

Perry comes to "Nobody's Fool" with a newfound interest in being dirty, but he's not prepared to ditch his creative habits, making sure his new film plays just like all his other ones.
Full Review | Original Score: D+

Writer-director Tyler Perry throws all kinds of ideas at us, but he never manages to get over the basic problem at the center of his script: Sumpter's character is shallow and unlikeable, while Haddish's... wears out her welcome in record time.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Unfocused and a total mess in narrative sensibilities. Perry and Haddish again show audiences that we're the fool for lining up at the box office for this trippin' tripe.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
November 3, 2018
Once again, Perry puts a good cast into a muddy story that lacks a clear premise, plot or theme.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
November 11, 2018
A complete trainwreck virtually from beginning to end...
