Jamie Foxx Skewers Tyler Perry With More Funny in 2 Minutes Than Madea Brings in a Whole Movie (VIDEO)

Jamie Foxx Tyler PerryIn this world there are people who get Tyler Perry's brand of humor. Then there are the rest of us. We're the people who saw Jamie Foxx dig his comedic claws into Madea this weekend on Saturday Night Live and wanted to watch it over and over and over again.

If you're a proud member of the "Why the hell do people watch Tyler Perry movies" fan club, allow me to share with you the hilarious gem that came out of Foxx's hosting duties this weekend. He might be all Mr. Serious Actor these days, but I saw flashes of Foxx the funny man we all loved from his In Living Color days in his faux trailer for Tyler Perry Presents: Alex Cross 2 : Madea Special Ops. It's like Jamie Foxx and SNL's giant holiday gift to the Anti-Tyler Perry Fans Club!

Check it out:

Ooooh, that's worth three snaps in Z formation right there! In two minutes Jamie managed to do what Madea can't do in a whole movie: make me laugh!

I almost feel bad for Tyler Perry. Almost. He tried to escape Madea by reprising the Alex Cross role that Morgan Freeman killed in Kiss the Girls, but as Foxx so hilariously pointed out ... it ain't going to happen. Once an annoying nosy old woman in drag, always an annoying nosy old woman in drag.

Jamie, on the other hand, can dress up in half a wig with half a pair of granny glasses and still look hot. That's saying something!

Are you a member of the Anti-Tyler Perry Fans Club? What did you think of Jamie Foxx as Tyler?

    The millions that Tyler Perry movies make is a testament to how funny they are. The anti- TP crowd must be a pretty small group.

    I liked the first Madea movie and love the character but the last few TP movies have been almost impossible to watch. Jamie Foxx shows he's still got it! Hilarious! :)

    The fact that TP is richer than Foxx could ever hope to be is testimony that he isn't lacking an audience.

    I'm more a fan of TP's plays than movies, but Madea is funny. It's Jamie Foxx who I've rarely found funny. So sorry, not part of the anti-TP group.

    Madea is amazing, and that is due to what a great actor, writer and director Tyler Perry is. He has every little nuance down. People like Jamie Foxx and Spike Lee are just jealous of how popular Madea is. And if you've ever watched a TP movie with Madea in it, you would know that they have both the funny and the sad. Tyler Perry is not afraid to acknowledge the dark aspects of life...but he is also willing to show that it is not all bleak.
