Product Description

When family's falling out, it's time to call in Aunt Bam to set a few things straight! The fun begins when Bam's favorite nephew-in-law, Stewart, is granted weekend visitation with his children. He and his new wife are thrilled at the chance -- until Stewart's drunken ex shows up with trouble in mind. Now it's up to Bam to calm things down in this high-spirited new play from Tyler Perry.

Amazon.com

Her silver bouffant towering a foot above her head, Aunt Bam (Cassi Davis, House of Payne) solves her family's problems with a sharp tongue and tough love. Stewart (Maurice Lauchner), divorced and remarried to a much younger wife, Mona (Taral Hicks), must fight to have access to his children (Paris Bennett and Jeffery Lewis). But he doesn't know just how angry his ex-wife Gloria (Melonie Daniels) is, and the lengths to which she'll go to turn his son against him. Can Aunt Bam save this family? Well, really, there's not much doubt, but Aunt Bam's Place glides along smoothly with snappy comedy, heartfelt Christian sentiment, and gospel songs (every character gets his or her own showstopping number). The play was filmed in front of a live audience at an Atlanta theater, giving it the look of a standard sitcom. Its greatest strength--besides Aunt Bam's crowd-pleasing wisecracks--is that it extends compassion to every character. Gloria, demonized though she is, has her own song wailing out her personal pain. Aunt Bam's Place is straight-ahead Tyler Perry (creator of Madea, director of Diary of a Mad Black Woman and I Can Do Bad All by Myself). Anyone who doesn't already like his work, where lives and souls are saved by song, prayer, and sass, will not be converted here. But anyone who appreciates this hard-working auteur's movies and TV shows will enjoy this play. --Bret Fetzer

I thought this play was really good. I was caught off guard by the intensity of the storyline because Tyler has never taken me there before, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. There are a few laughs, but like I said the storyline is a lot more intense, so there was only so much comedy you could fit into the dialogue. If you enjoy intense stories that deliver a STRONG message then you will probably like it, but if you're expecting the comedy that Aunt Bam and Madea are known for, then you may not like it as much because the STORYLINE overshadows the comedy. In this case I can see why there wasnt AS much comedy, but like I said there were a few laughs that were needed to lighten the mood.

I love Aunt Bam's character. She is the perfect sidekick for Madea and Cassi Davis's comedic timing is amazing, but not even her antics and humor can save this play. Its a little more dramatic and over-the-top than Tyler's usual plays and while the singing is AMAZING, the script and subject of the play is weak and at times way less than entertaining. Hopefully Tyler will do Cassi Davis justice and write a play that is deserving of her skill and presence.

I love Tyler Perry's plays and movies, but this one was not good at all. I didn't even look at the entire play and I bought it! This play just wasn't good. I still love Tyler Perry I support him to the fullest. I have purchased every play and movie he has done and will continue to do so!! I just didn't like this one.

but this play-not so much. I enjoyed Aunt Bam, I loved how they sat on the couch together and sang I Just Cant Give Up Now, and i was SOOO impressed that Melonie Daniels is in this!!!! I wish she could have sang a whole lot more, she is super talented, much sought after in the gospel and secular world.

I didnt care for the childrens acting nor the married couple.I think maybe I am just used to the vibe of all the TP casts and this cast didnt connect for me. Ive seen all of them in other plays and they have all shined but in this one, with them all together, NO MAAM! Cassi did her thing as the Veteran!!! She tried to anchor the whole thing...She was super funny as usual and she held her own as the voice of authority and reason.

Im still glad I supported TP. I love the whole cast, just dont want to see them alone...in a play....together...ever again...

Don't get me wrong this play had a great message, but that was not enough for the amount the DVD cost.. Tyler really dropped the ball on this one.. It was beyond dry, a waste of time, & money. Don't buy this DVD just borrow...

I love Tyler Perry, I own all his plays and movies. I really like Cassi Davis (Aunt Bam) she is halarious. Great story line but it seemed rushed. It seemed everything happened so quickly I didn't get an understanding of what was really going on, then it was over. I will watch it again and again I am sure but it will not make my list of Tyler Perry favorites.
