“Married:” Another Stretch For Janet

Janet_JacksonSkimming over the plot for Tyler Perry’s latest aberration, “Why Did I Get Married Too?”, I noticed that Janet Jackson (pictured) plays a psychologist. This reminded me of the last time Miss Janet played a highly educated woman onscreen, in “The Nutty Professor II,” opposite Eddie Murphy, who was decked out in Hollywood’s finest whiz-bangery. What critic Elvis Mitchell said of Miss Janet in “Nutty” undoubtedly applies to “Married.” To wit: “the biggest special effect in the movie is her playing a genetics scientist. The names of the chemical compounds don’t come trippingly off her tongue; it’s as if they trip off her tongue.”
