It turns out that Tyler Perry isn’t just awful in his own movies; he’s awful in other people’s too. Here he attempts to fill Morgan Freeman’s shoes as James Patterson’s titular FBI profiler, in what’s perhaps the most spectacular piece of miscasting this side of Kevin Costner’s Robin Hood. To be fair he’s not helped by Matthew Fox’s skeletal serial killer – proof if proof be needed that drastic weight loss does not automatically equal a dramatic performance.
