Does anyone else share the notion that Tyler Perry may be the worst mainstream director ever?

Besides Michael Bay that is.

I've heard people mention similar comments but to be honest I've not yet seen any of his films so I can't say. He does have a huge target audience and if I remember correctly they tend to do pretty well at the box office.
