Tyler Perry has long been one of the most prolific, successful, and recognizable figures in show business with surprise hits like Diary of a Mad Black Woman and appearances in gripping psychological thrillers like Gone Girl. Perry, thanks to his tremendous work ethic, has put together a string of hit stage productions, movies, TV shows, and more, with his unique blend of comedy, drama, and sentimentality that largely goes unmatched.
With dozens of titles to his name, keeping track of where you can watch Tyler Perry movies streaming is about as easy as keeping up with all of his philanthropic contributions (both are staggering, to say the least). However, to showcase the best the writer, director, producer, and angry grandma has to offer, we’ve gathered some of Perry’s best movies and shows and how you can watch them online. There’s a lot to unpack, so let’s get started…
Tyler Perry’s Diary Of A Mad Black Woman (2005)
After her husband reveals that not only has he been cheating on her but he is also filing for divorce, Helen Simmons-McCarter (Kimberly Elise) turns to the one person she can trust: her tough yet loving grandmother, Mabel “Madea” Simmons (Tyler Perry). When Madea takes matters into her own hands and destroys Helen’s soon-to-be-ex’s home and property, the temperamental and boisterous grandma lands herself in deep trouble. But, this is just the beginning of the many troubles in Tyler Perry’s Diary of a Mad Black Woman.

Adam McKay’s 2018 Academy Award-winning (Best Makeup and Hairstyling) biographical drama, Vice, centers on former Vice President Dick Cheney (Christian Bale) and the various people whom he crossed paths with during his decades-long rise to power in American business and politics. One of those figures is the late Secretary of State Colin Powell (Tyler Perry), who essentially becomes the public face for the botched 2003 invasion of Iraq, especially during the former general’s fateful and disastrous February 2003 speech in front of the United Nations Security Council.
Don’t Look Up (2021)
Tyler Perry worked again with Adam McKay three years later for the 2021 Netflix satirical comedy, Don’t Look Up, in which he portrayed The Daily Rip co-host, Jack Bremmer. Not wanting to hear what Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, or Rob Morgan’s characters have to say about the approaching planet-killer asteroid, Bremmer and his morning show co-host, Brie Evantree (Cate Blanchett), joke about the situation when not dismissing it entirely.

Boo! A Madea Halloween (2016)
The 2016 comedy, Boo! A Madea Halloween, takes what worked for the franchise in the past and adds an “All Hollow’s Eve” element into the equation. After crashing a frat party (Tyler Perry) and taking her teenage granddaughter home, Madea and assorted family members find themselves being targeted by a group of revenge-obsessed pranksters who continually up the ante. But, these ghosts, goblins, and zombies are no match for Mabel Simmons and her mean right hand.
Those Who Wish Me Dead (2021)
When a young boy becomes the target of a pair of highly-trained contract killers, fire lookout Hannah Faber (Angelina Jolie) becomes his only hope for survival in the wilderness of Montana hill country. Directed by Taylor Sheridan, Those Who Wish Me Dead, features a performance by Tyler Perry that is more stern, intimidating, and unsettling than anything else in his filmography.
Why Did I Get Married? (2007)
For years, eight close friends have gone on a couples vacation to catch up and relax. But unlike previous years, the trip at the center of Why Did I Get Married? doesn’t go as smoothly, as revelations about their private lives rise to the surface, leading to one explosive meltdown and fight after another high up in the Rocky Mountains. While a sequel quickly followed three years later, there is no telling when, or if, a third movie in the franchise will happen.
House Of Payne (2006 – Present)
Since its debut on TBS (the show later moved to BET) in June 2006, Tyler Perry’s House of Payne has spent 11 seasons and 300+ episodes focusing on the titular family, with a primary focus on family patriarch Curtis Payne (LaVan Davis) and his wife Ella (Cassi Davis). Although Perry does not appear as an actor on the long-running sitcom, he has directed a large portion of the show’s episodes and written several dozen chapters over the years.

Tyler Perry’s A Madea Homecoming
Released 17 years after Diary of a Mad Black Woman, the 2022 Netflix movie, Tyler Perry’s a Madea Homecoming, takes the familiar characters from Perry’s body of work, adds in some new faces (including some from across the pond), and creates another fun and heartfelt story as Madea’s great-grandson prepares to graduate from college.

Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes To Jail (2009)

Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Family Reunion (2006)
If planning a family reunion wasn’t a difficult enough task, Madea finds herself in trouble with the law once again and agrees to take in a teenage foster child named Nikki (Keke Palmer) to avoid going back to jail. But, those are just two of the many struggles the grandma is forced to overcome in 2006’s Madea’s Family Reunion. And, who knows, maybe Palmer and Perry will work together again if the Nope star lands a role in Sister Act 3.

Alex Cross (2012)
In 2012, Tyler Perry tried his hand at the action thriller genre when he starred as the titular character in Rob Cohen’s Alex Cross, an adaptation of James Patterson’s Cross novels. The movie follows Perry’s Alex Cross as he attempts to nab the self-proclaimed Picasso Killer, only for the hunter to become the hunted after the Detroit detective and psychologist stops the sadistic madman from picking off one of his high-profile targets.
A Madea Christmas
When Madea’s great-great-niece refuses to come home for Christmas, the family matriarch does what anyone in her position would do: she makes a surprise visit to rural Alabama to bring her family back home (or at least find out what’s going on) in A Madea Christmas. While down there, Madea finds herself giving a rather unorthodox version of the Christmas story, earning the ire of the locals, and learning a whole lot in the process, in addition to bringing her family close together.
