Some coworkers and I went to see this in Dallas. Sadly, one of our own left us to be in it. :) I am a big fan of the Tyler Perry plays and this is definitely one of the best. It will definitely make you laugh and will probably make you cry. The singing is incredible! By the end, the entire audience was on their feet. You will not regret this purchase!

note: I definitely have to agree with the review left by Felicia Flagler. I have no idea who the actors/actresses are who Amazon listed and think it is definitely a big slap in the face to the real people who put on such an amazing performance!

This is a wonderful movie (quality and all) that has a beautiful message attached not to spoil the movie but once you have seen this it will become very clear what life is all about. Given that this story is one that is very near and dear to me, I must say that this is a powerful movie and the information that is presented is one that will not be forgotten.

Hilarity ensues. Great lines, AWESOME SINGERS and always wrapped in an uplifting message. Tyler Perry productions may not be everyones cup of tea, but whenever I am feeling low and need a pick me up, I pop in one of his plays, and it never fails to lift my spirit, and remind me that GOD is still great and on the throne.

This is another of Tyler Perry's well-written and highly entertaining plays. It would have been nice to see another couple in the session, but it worked really nicely with just the two very funny couples. The father is much funnier than the mother, but he could be funny playing opposite a paper bag. The more serious or tender conversations slowed just a couple of scenes, but not to the point that you get bored and it is important for the way the play ends. There is a strong Christian message, but I feel that is intertwined a little better in this one because it is not so "in your face" and "preachy" like some of the other plays. This is one of the plays that would have an awesome soundtrack, so when the group sings together, it is really the highlight of the play. Great from start to finish!

If you're a fan of Tyler Perry's theatrical works, then you'd enjoy this play. It's an oft-told story: the ups and downs of love and marriage. In this case, it really hits home for someone who helps other people in their marriage, herein lies the irony.

As far as the play went, it was pretty unwatchable, except for the fabulous singing. The comedy seemed really silly and out of place, and I wondered is this a comedy? But there's so much drama! Clichés abounded in this story too: the petite, blonde assistant who acted "ghetto fabulous" (for lack of a better term) and surprised the audience with her super-soulful vocals. Newsflash, Tyler: the late, great Teena Marie was probably available, you should have just casted her! LOL

Like I said, if you are a TP fan, you'll enjoy this one. I thought it was for a very specific audience: the churchgoing crowd. I didn't think TP was particularly concerned for non-Christians or people who don't regularly listen to gospel music.

Marriage Counselor is an excellent play that conveys the Black woman and Black man of today. The woman is more successful from the professional stand point of a career and does not understand that being loved is more important than being financially successful. On the otherhand, the man is truly not a good listener and is lacking in communication skills when it comes to what she is actually saying in regards to their relationship. This is typical of many Black relationships struggling to make marriages work. We need to be more aware of these basic problems in order to evaluate what communication skills can be developed and improved upon as a race of people; "Marriage Counselor" is a play indicative of the challenges a relationship presents when there is a flaw in communication.

I have watched this play by Tyler Perry so many times. The characters as far as playing their parts were just great. Tyler is still displaying a message in this play as all the others that he's produced what can happen in real life in a marriage when two people that are high professionals themselves can drift away or get lost in their careers. It's so easy to get caught up in other things that can cause an effect on a marriage if you're not paying attention to what's going on . My man Palmer took the show off the hook. I've studied all of the people Tyler has chosen in each play since the beginning, but Palmer has out aced them all. This man is not talented he has been born with the gift from birth. Anthony I've seen in some of the play's also is great. When he played the part in Why did I get married I fell in love with him right then and was hoping that Tyler would us him more. In marriage counselor when he founded out that his wife had commit cheated on him and he set there a cried tore me up. At the same time he was not paying attention to her needs where he should. It was a play to demonstrate how in real life what can happen when we don't place God as our captain. We are bound to allow the adversary trick us and we fall and drift the wrong way. Everyone should get this DVD and study it if you're professional business person or not.
