After the near riot I saw in Manhattan over a sneak preview of Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married on Wednesday night, its surprise box office victory this weekend doesn't seem so surprising. Perry has a very devoted fan base that carried him past other high profile openers, We Own the Night and Elizabeth: The Golden Age, as well as the expansion of Michael Clayton.
