Tyler Perry’s latest thriller was shot at his new 300-acre studio in Atlanta in just five days. That’s pretty incredible for a two-hour Netflix movie, but those tuning into A Fall From Grace on their small screens are noticing some goofs that certainly validate this remarkably quick turnaround. Check this one out:
WOW! Anyone else ever wonder why the text notifications always show up bigger on the phones in movies? Here’s our answer, thanks to this funny error in A Fall From Grace.

Then when he takes his fork to some eggs, he doesn’t grab a single morsel of food and puts the utensil up to his tongue anyway. And during the same scene, there’s another odd detail:
I don’t think that’s usually on the menu, Tyler Perry! This is the kind of thing that has led fans to criticize the filmmaker for writing all of his own television shows and movies. Being a one man band is impressive, but it’s just easier to make mistakes or go tone deaf when your name is filled in for director, writer, executive producing, as well as on the cast list.
Fans are also pointing at the wigs used in A Fall From Grace too. Mehcad Brooks has a funny flat top straight out of a ‘90s music video, and here is Perry’s:
Hey, it still makes for entertainment, right? One Twitter user decided it may have been intentional:
