Watch the official trailer below:
The release of Acrimony in 2018 stirred so much controversy in the society as it assumed a pivot of virtually every discussion. Its storyline stirred so many lingering arguments among various groups, friends and couples, whereby each party became so opinionated about their allegiance to either Melinda (Taraji P. Henson) or Robert (Lyriq Bent) who were the main characters of the film.
Brief Plot of Acrimony:
When Melinda met Robert, she was sceptical of his charming nature, but couldn’t deny how attracted she was to him. Once they fell in love, Melinda moulded herself into everything he wanted her to be. She sacrificed for him, worked to support his grandiose dreams, and put up with him for better or for worse. Then, one day she realised that, after all, she had done, another woman was reaping the lavish rewards. That’s when Melinda lost it, and now she cannot let it go. ( Cc wikipedia.com)
Without dubiety, Acrimony was the most talked about film during the time of its release, grossing $46 million worldwide with a bone of contention, ‘Who is at fault?’. If you watched the film, you can relate too.

Throwback Reviews Of Acrimony From Mutterers…
Femi Wager said:
“I feel that Mel was not reasonable enough. Although she was a support system at the trying phase of Roberts life all she needed to do was trust a little more. How can we say they have been married for several years and she couldn’t forget an act done a long time before marriage? Definitely, she didn’t trust him enough.
He had his flaws alright, but we all do. He was from the streets, he played his cards like a typical dude from the streets but he acknowledged that he owed her everything. How would you explain the ten million dollars? This dude wanted so bad to reconcile things but she had already concluded about him before he even repented- that’s even if he did anything in the first place.
If she was so wonderful like people claim she is, why take him to court after the deal worked out? He was fair. What was she expecting when she went to his house? The lady was there for him at the time when help was fundamental. Most times with help, it is not about when you did it. It is about at what point you did it. The other lady was there for him, up to the point when his deal clicked and he was meant to leave her like that? Haha. I don’t think so”.

“The cause of the problem is in the title itself is money.
If Robert didn’t become wealthy, Mel would have gotten over it. She was just mental.
Like 10 mil comes chop?
Honestly, your divorce argument doesn’t count cause he knew he’d never win when she came with her sister that hates him. Nothing he could do or say to her there that would’ve saved the marriage and she admitted in her monologue when she said: “The funny thing is I believed him then I felt sorry for him”.
The truth is what he was trying to invent was history groundbreaking and yes he should’ve been there for her but the truth was he cared for her not loved her.
Like every great inventor that is building something revolutionary they never have time for anything else; all them Albert Einstein Nikolas tesla they normally have someone funding them so he just used her and yes he was a con but to a large extent that breakup broke him at least her stopping to believe in him cause no one else did
She could’ve still had access to him if she got over it and not snapped they could’ve ended amicably and been good friends but like the therapist said she didn’t want to accept any blame cause they both were at fault”.

“I just saw the movie Acrimony and this question comes to my head, How will you feel if the same person your partner told you not to worry about with the line ‘she/he is just a friend or I don’t feel anything for her’ ends up being with your partner after you guys are no more together? Bad, right?
I guess that was how Mel felt, the same person she caught her man cheating on her with, the same person’s purse that led to her divorce and then the same person ends up with her man with a much better condition of life than she had with him.
Or in a different light, she was just a jealous psycho who was just after him because of how successful he had become or was surprised and bitter that something good could come out of him and she wasn’t the cause neither would she be there to enjoy it with him.
I guess, if he had just kept working in the kitchen washing dishes she would care less if he was together with Diana. In all, she was a psycho for love😁”
It’s two days before the release of ‘A Fall From Grace’, judging by its trailer, and bearing in mind two themes common to both films, love and betrayal, do you think it will be as successful or surpass ‘Acrimony‘s’ rating?
I had a light-hearted conversation with a friend about “Acrimony” and she told me how the film made her depressed for days. I have the movie in my laptop but I couldn’t bring myself to finish it. I stopped watching when she started acting nuts. I had already read the review and I knew she died at the end but I couldn’t bear to watch how she died. I wanted she and Rob to get back together and I don’t blame her for not believing that he had changed or that his invention had caught the attention of investors. Staying… Read more »
“Robert’s largesse was a genuine display of appreciation given the fact that he didn’t have to, but I felt having made hundreds of millions of dollars from his invention, giving her $10M felt like a paltry sum. But again, even if he had upped the sum or given her the amount she had requested, she wouldn’t have let them be. Her fixation with/on Rob would not have stopped until she succeeded in getting him back.” Exactly!
Interesting summary by the way. We will ensure not to give any offsetting spoilers for ‘A Fall From Grace’ here.
Tyler Perry always delivers as always.
The intent of Acrimony was to tell the story and let the audience be their own therapist which as we all know stirred up a lot and you have people deciding to “live their truth”. Personally, if you want to date any girl or man, it’s wise to discuss the movie and hear their thoughts… It’s like picking their brains too. 😜😅
I look forward to the New movie with an open and unprejudiced mind. ☺
Are you aware there’s been a number of broken relationships because of several unresolved arguments derived from Acrimony’s story line?
Be careful what you ask on a first date though 😂😂
I’m aware and I’ll definitely ask… You get to know how they think.
A lot of resolves after seeing Acrimony was based on biasness and emotionalism unlike few that were objective about it.
