One of my students loaned me the videotape and I am over here DYING!! Madea is an off the hook, gun-toting, cussing Grandma.

Has anyone seen this play? Check it out if you get the chance. It is hilarious.

I have not seen this play, but a 1000 plays like it I'm sure. I'm just tired of the same old "black" plays. They are starting to become so Amos & Andy like. Just not funny to me. I wish someone make a play with some substance. I have been going to a few playhouse around Chicago, that's where I have found the best plays in the last few years. A few months ago I went to a play called, "A TRIBUTE TO PHYLISS HYMAN" It was excellent.

I finished watching Madea's Family Reunion and my student also had Diary of a Mad Black Woman on the video as well. I was in pain at all the laughter. What's even more ironic is that Madea referenced the reason that Rosa Parks stayed on the bus is because Rosa took Madea's man.

At any rate, I thoroughly enjoyed it and my student is making me a copy of these 2 plays. I need to see when he is coming to Charlotte.

My great Aunt first showed everyone Madea's Family Reunion at my cousins wedding earlier this year, and then I saw Diary of a Mad Black Woman at the beauty salon a month ago. That woman is off da chain!!! She reminds me soooo much of my great grandmother who passed several years ago. She was the same type: gun-carryin, cussin, smokin', poker playin, whiskey drinkin'...just a TRIP and to boot, she had a gold tooth in the front of her mouth and EVERYBODY else in our family was saved and went to church except her. Ironically, we called her "Ma'Dear" :cool:

The part of Madea's Family Reunion I love is when everyone starts singing gospel songs and Madea starts singing like she is about to say "I know I've been changed," but instead she says "IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII.........I be strokin'!!!":D Pure hilarity. And everyone can relate to at least one family member from their own family in that play.

IMO in Diary of a Mad Black Woman Daddy Charles was FUNNIER with his Anna Mae Bullock routine and his The Color Purple comments.

MaDear did not have to call Charles Teddy Pendergrass. When she did that, I flatlined fa real.


Look out for MaDear's class reunion. I had to subscribe to Tyler's mailing list because I want to see one of his plays LIVE.

Madea had me hollering about her crackheaded granddaughter and when she did I beeeeeeeeee stroking and her cracks on the no neck having neighbor, I was CTFU really loudly.

Her and those guns need to stop, fa real.

Tyler Perry's are just wonderful. Ladies, you have not seen anything until you are live and in the audience. I have seen both plays live here in Chicago and half of the things Ma'dear does is not even captured on the video. When the plays come to your city, spend the extra cash and get front row seats. Ma'dear has been known to have the audience participate. My favorite of the two is Diary of a Mad Black Woman. Another play to look out for that is traveling from city to city is called “The Other Woman.” This is also a Gospel play with many messages. I saw this play in May, and I have forgotten the name of the writer, but if anyone is interested, I am sure I can get the information.

Both Medea's Family reunion and Diary of a Mad Black Woman are wonderful! I was LMAO!! Too funny- I wish that they would tour through Iowa, but I know that that is just *wishful thinking!* The play When a Woman's Fed Up did tour through Iowa, and that play was the bomb as well! If there are any other websites that you know of with play's tour dates, please post them!

Also, Michael Baisden's play men cry in the dark is in the play form, I've heard- does anyone know about that??

DSTia,

I saw this play this past spring as well and it is a wonderful play. Allen Payne does and excellent job portraying his character; not to mention the scene were he takes his shirt off! :D Because of time limitations, the play really does not get into all of the characters in the book. But if the play makes it to a city near you, I highly recommend you go and see it.

"Get off the bus, Rosa! Get off the bus.."

I've never been interested in thses types of plays before but my next door neighbor brought over some tapes. Since I'm new down here I didn't want to be rude so I watched them. But I will say they were seriously funny.

I saw "I Can Do Bad All By Myself" and "Diary of a Mad Black Woman" live. HILARIOUS! In both shows, my stomach hurt for the rest of the evening because I was laughing so hard. Tyler Perry is now my favorite playwrite of all times because he has a message with all the laughter, and it's not run of the mill "Chitlin' Circuit" material.

Just to see Madea get that attitude and bob her head that hard that the wig is rocking is funny. And the guns. She actually reminds me of my late aunt in a lot of ways.

@ StraightBOS - that Rosa story.... ROTFL

Y'all have made it that my mother and I (we both love him) have to see "Madea's Family Reunion".

I saw Diary of a Mad Black Woman when it came to Baltimore last year...it was such a funny play. I was in tears!:D Madea's Family Reunion is coming to Morgan State University very soon (either this coming weekend or next weekend). I will have to get my ticket because I know it will be off the chain! Tyler Perry is a mess!:D

Thanks for the thread! When I saw it a few weeks back, I went to Tyler Perry's website and decided to surprise my mother with tickets for her birthday. We saw Madea's family reunion last night in Detroit. IT was HILARIOUS! I've got the tape already, but it was so much better in person and the play changes with each city it goes to and gets funnier with time.

Thanks again! :D

Madea's Class Reunion was absolutely hilarious!!! Tyler Perry said that it's actually still a work in progress, and that after this play, he's going to be taking a break because he's bringing Madea to TV!!! He just signed a deal with CBS, and the show is in development so we'll see what happens!

I saw four of his plays, one in person, and three on video tape. He is definitely an exceptional writer and defintely captivates his audience. I can't wait to see Madea's Class Reunion in April when it comes to DC...I missed the one in Hampton because it was sold out :(.

03-02-2003, 09:53 AM
OMG, the play was fierce and funny and hilarious. I laughed and I teared up. Tyler Perry took me there. It is TRULY nothing like watching the video.

He has 6 shows in Charlotte and all 6 were sold out.

You laugh from beginning to almost the end. The singing was in your face and it sent chills down my spine. Oh and for those wondering WHERE has Cheryl "Pepsii" Riley been? Right now she has a starring role in MADEA'S CLASS REUNION. :cool:

I bought the souvenir booklet and am being blessed by reading that as well.

He has another play coming that will star Kelly Price and Johnny Gill.

Oh and for those of you all who love Mr. Brown -- get ready get ready to LYBO @ him AGAIN. Yes he still has ashy knees. :D

I am mad too because I might have rolled up to the G spot to see it again. There were folks last night in the audience from Durham/Raleigh area as well. I am sorry I did not know he had changed the locales because I would have posted the info for you.

I do know he is adding more dates for June - December so maybe he will make it back down here for you. :)

Hi,

This is Tyler.

I wanted to take a time out here and thank you for all of your love and support.

I am celebrating my tenth year in the business and this show, "Madea's Class Reunion" has been by far the most sucessful yet. I am so grateful to GOD for allowing all of you all be a part of my destiny. Again, thank you.

The Class Reunion Tour
We started this tour in January 2003 and since this will be my last tour for a while, it has been very difficult for people to get seats. Two ladies in Dallas started fighing in the aisle!:eek: I aint lyin', they must be kin to Madea. However, on a serious note, it's been a good problem for me to have and I am gratetful.

The War in Iraq
While our country is at war, please let's remember to pray for our troops. I have received over 27,000 names on our special prayer list, so when it pops up on the website please, if you don't mind, whisper a prayer for them and for their families. I'm sure they need and would appreciate it.

I will be closing the prayer list on the website on April 20th so that I can print it and take it to the altar at my church where we will pray over the names of our troops.


New Cities for 2003
I read the message board daily and I do see that you all are asking me to come to your city. It has been amazing watching some of you travel for hours to be at the shows. I know that the videos are good, but there's nothing like seeing it live. Am I right? Madea is a fool and I don't know what she is going to do from night to night.

With that in mind, I have decided to try and hit as many new cities as I can before this tour is over. I have heard you and will try to get to your city or somewhere close.

I thank you all and may God bless you. Please try to get your tickets early, people have been left out because all of the shows have been sold out. If you don't believe me then read some of the messages on the message board. Here is a listing of some of the cities that I'm coming to (listed in alphabetical order):

Biloxi, MS (new)
Birmingham, AL (new)
Hampton, VA (new)
Indianapolis, IN
Los Angeles, CA (new)
Miami, FL (new)
Oakland, CA (new)
Portland, OR (new)
Richmond, VA (new)
Seattle, WA (new)
St. Louis, MO (new)
Winston-Salem, NC (new)

We are still finalizing other new cities like Denver and Phoenix. For more information please visit: http://www.tylerperry.com/shows

Between now and December 2003, we will play at least fifteen weeks in new cities. Do you want to know how I choose these new cities? I look at the message board and the mailing list. We pull up zip codes to see where most of the requests are coming from so please get your friends and family to sign up at TylerPerry.com.


New Mailing List Update System
We have improved our mailing list program so make sure that you enter your zip code when signing up. Many people were not receiving the ticket sale updates because we did not have a correct zip code on file. A separate email will be sent tomorrow describing this new system.

What's Coming Up?
In December I am taking my first break! I have been traveling and touring for five years straight and have decided that it's time for a long and much overdue break. I will be taking a year or two off.

During this time I will be doing a lot of things that I have neglected to do like taking care of Tyler for a while. Dating, partying, writing and a lot of vacationing--that is, until the T.V. deal with C.B.S. causes me to start working full time again.

It looks like I might only get a few weeks off before the T.V. show kicks off.

A New Play
During the T.V. show, my band and crew will still have to work and so will people that I like, like Brown and Cora, so I will be writing a show and putting them in it, along with my friend, Kelly Price. So, look for it! It will either be called "He Proposed to Me" or "Why Did I Get Married?"


Toll Free 800 number
In an effort to cut down on some of the losses that my company has been experiecing from the bootleggers, I have created a phone number for ordering videos. The toll free number is 1-800-49-TYLER.

Please call and place your orders or let someone know who is not a member of the Email Club or who doesn't have Internet access that they can call and order.

So You Want to Know How I Find Talent for My Shows?
In July I will be participating in a talent showcase called "Gospel Dreams". I will be hosting and looking for talented people to either work directly with or introduce into the entertainment industry. This will take place in Atlanta in July. Here is the official announcement.

Tyler Perry and Madea are excited to announce their hosting of Gospel Dream. Gospel Dream is the gospel music industry's answer to American Idol. The Gospel Dream Talent Search will create an opportunity for undiscovered individuals to showcase their musical talent to the nation while being evaluated by some of the gospel music industry's finest.

The Gospel Dream Talent Search will be taped for television in Atlanta, Ga on July 9, 2003, during the 10th year celebration of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International Conference. Accomplished producer and composer, Elvin Ross serves as Executive Producer and Bishop Paul S. Morton, Senior Producer. For more information on Gospel Dream log onto http://www.gospeldream.net


The Class Reunion Video
The video will be recorded in September in Detroit and Hampton, VA and will be available in October 2003.

There will be a lot of extra footage on the DVD, so get ready!

I love you all and again I say thanks and God bless you.

Tyler

How ya'll durin'?

This is Tyler. I haven't talked to you in a while so I thought I'd say
hi. Even though I am officially off this year, I am still touring. I
didn't want to take any time off without getting to all the places that
were asking us to come. If you noticed, we have played many new
cities.
I can't get to all of them but we are trying.

Seeing the video is one thing but seeing it live is a whole other
matter. This is your last chance to see the Class Reunion live so come
on I'd love to see you. I told the Trenton area when we started the
show a year ago that we would come back so that they can see how it
ended up so we will be there this week.

I did attach all of the tour dates along with all of the "Why Did I get
Married?" tour dates.

Right now, I am writing a show for David Mann, Mr. Brown. It's called
"MR. BROWN GOES TO JAIL". Madea pressed back child support charges for
Cora so he got locked up. The show will start touring in September.
The tour dates will be posted very soon at Tyler Perry.com. Even
though
I am not in this show, I think that Mr. Brown can hold it down. You
will enjoy it. David and his wife Tam (Cora) are good people, so see
the show! They would love your support. :D :cool:

The reason I did this is that I have many people that have worked for
me
for years and it would be unfair for me to take a break without
considering them and their family. This show will not only keep them
employed but you guys will leave there laughing and having a good time.

My new show will start in January 2005, and Madea and Daddy Charles
will
be back. This show will be by far the best one yet. I am hiring some
incredible singers and actors. I'll give you more information as the
show gets closer.

People have asked what I am doing right now. One is that I'm still
touring here and there; the other is working out everyday reading your
e-mails on the message boards. By the way, I am so happy! I just
finished writing my first movie, "Diary of a Mad Black Woman." The
script is wonderful, we start taping the movie in June, and it will be
out in January 2005. Even though I'm off, I'm still pretty busy.
During the touring of Mr. Brown Goes to Jail, you will be the first to
see the commercial for the movie.

I don't know if you know this, but every show that you have seen that
is
on video I wrote while I was touring. It was hard, but now that I'm
off, I can really focus on my script and writing a great story. So
just
know that Daddy Charles is ready for a come back, and Madea will be
rested and ready to go.

Thank you guys! Don't forget about me while I'm off. Just know that I
needed a break so that when this new show comes out, I'll be ready.

By the way, did ya'll order your key chains yet? They are hilarious!

Pray for us, thank you much!

Love,

I have not been able to see any in person but I have seen all of them on VHS. He is so crazy and you can help but to laugh the whole time. I can't wait until he does something new. I head that he is working on a T.V. show.

He said last night at the show, that the TV show is not gonna happen b/c they were trying to make him sellout. He said that they wouldn't let him say "Jesus"...but you could say God..... But he is still doing a movie "Diary of a Mad Woman", and he has other plays that he has written......One of them is called "Meet the Browns".....And yes it is about THE Mr. Brown.

Hello Everyone,

I trust that you all are having a great summer. I know that I am. I
think most of you know that I have taken some time off, but I want you
to know that I have been thinking about you. During my time off I’ve
completed Meet The Browns, keeping all of you in mind. I know that
David Mann (Brown) is going to do a great job. I’m encouraging everyone
to check the schedule so that you guys can get the good seats before we
start advertising.

In case you haven’t heard, I am currently filming my first featured
movie. The movie is based on the stage play, “DIARY OF A MAD BLACK
WOMAN”. After the completion of this film I will be back with one more
Madea play called “Madea Goes to Jail”, coming in January. Around the
same time “DIARY OF A MAD BLACK WOMAN” will open in theatres.

I just finished my first week of filming for the movie “DIARY OF A MAD
BLACK WOMAN” and it is awesome. I’ve put a few pictures on the web site
(www.tylerperry.net) so that you all will be the first to witness
what’s
going on. The movie is expected to be released in the month of January,
but until then I will be updating you on how it’s going. I tell you,
Kimberly Elise (John Q, Set It Off, Manchurian Candidate) is doing an
awesome job as Helen. Steve Harris (The Practice) is playing Charles
and they are nailing every scene. Ya’ll know Madea is doing her thing
like she always does. Prepare to be shocked by Shemar Moore’s
performance and new look who is playing Orlando. Let me tell you who
else is in the movie, Judge Maybelline Ephraim is making a cameo as the
divorce court judge. There is a scene when Madea gets arrested and she
has to stand before Judge Mathis, (this scene is so funny) and Pastor
Donnie McClurkin is the Pastor of the Church.

I’ve got to go now because I’m on my way to meet our other star in the
movie, Cicely Tyson. Can you believe that she is playing Myrtle? That is so amazing to me.

I am so proud of the work that everyone is doing. We are doing things you have never seen in the history of film, Black people are being shown in this positive light. In this film blacks are being portrayed as rich, and loving. Well, Charles is playing a dog in the movie, there are also other black men in this movie that we will all be very proud of. Seeing us having made it on our brain and skill, rather than drugs and riff raft is what I’m most happy about.

I must tell everyone that this is a family movie, so you will be able
to take the entire family. I refused to compromise, and the reason I refuse to is because of people like you. You guys keep buying my videos directly from The Tyler Perry Company and investing in me and I appreciate that. This allows me to do things the way that God would have them done, but also to be able to walk away when it’s not right, (…hence the sitcom with C.B.S.) There will be no sex, profanity, or violence, in this movie, well there is Madea Violence. (smile) but you know what
I’m saying.

I ask you to pray for us. I’m trying to be very sensitive to the
Spirit so that this movie is powerful and anointed. My deepest prayer is when people walk away from the movie theaters that they leave changed. After you guys see it you will know what I mean.

God bless you! I’ll get some more pictures for you all to see for next week. I will also tell you about my meeting with Ms. Tyson.

Oh yeah, go to the message board and let me know what you think of this and let me know if you have your MEET THE BROWN’S tickets.

Talk to you soon.

My daughters took me to the show last night belated birthday gift in the pouring rain, other than you, Tyler not being there the show was off the hook. I believe there wasn't one person in the audience who could not relate to all of your artists. I say artists because actors are artists. I needed to laugh like I did last night. Quiet is kept I had an Aunt Vera too but her name was Aunt Marion. Tyler I have followed your plays since I first saw your video. The music is off the hook, as well as the theme of the play. The cast was hilarious, everyone! And what's so weird is I'm studying English Literature and during the Middle Ages actors included the audience in the play. It was great becoming a part of the play!

Just came back from the show with my Mommykins. I laughed the entire time. It was a far better experience than "Class Reunion". That man is NUTS!!! We were also able to see trailer for the movie "Diary of a Mad Black Woman" with an personal introduction by Shemar Moore (Elise Neal was also there).

While there, I bought Meet the Browns (about to watch it now).


FYI-The movie is coming out on Feb. 25th.

Thanks for the report. Some sorors and I are supposed to go see it in Columbia next month. 1SavvyDiva, let me know, we are buying the tickets next Friday. :D

I saw Class Reunion live and it was BETTER than the DVD. When I finally saw the DVD, I felt almost like it was a different play.

Hi there,

Well guys we are within ten days of “Diary of a Mad Black Woman” opening all over the country. I am so excited and I know that you are too because I can feel the vibe when I come out to take a bow at the end of the show. I’m sure by now that all of you have seen the commercial and advertisements for the movie. I sure hope so anyway. You wanna hear something funny? I was driving down the street and saw a bus with Madea on the side of it and almost had a wreck!

There was an article in the Wall Street Journal last week about me and the movie. It was a good article but in reading it, I got the since that main stream is not expecting much from this movie. That weekend (February 25th, 26th, and 27th) we all have to go to the theatres to see the movie and it is my hope that every showing for Diary of a Mad Black Woman will be sold out. I’ll tell you why…this is Hollywood’s way of judging your success. They will be the ones to report how many people saw the movie the first weekend it hit the public.

So do me a favor. I want the true Tyler Perry folks in there, this first weekend. Before the rest of the world finds out about what we already know, I want you all to fill these theatres so that you can go to the message board and really let me know what you all thought. You know I read it often. Go to the movies with someone, or some group you’re apart of. Trust me when I tell you this movie is for everyone; bring your church group, choir, senior citizen ministries, singles ministries, youth department, your sorority, fraternity, book club and any other group that you can think of. You can make this an event. If all of us bring our family and our friends it will make a huge difference. Each one of you can make it special. If you have a group, call this number (866) 707-4729 and get your advance tickets. You can start buying them now www.diarytix.com . So when you see this movie just know that I am so proud of it and I thank God for the opportunity. I know you’re going to enjoy it.

You can watch the TV spots at the following links (copy-and-paste into your browser): lionsgate.arcostream.net/lionsgate/dmbw/tv/dmbw_madeas_rules_56Kbps.wmv lionsgate.arcostream.net/lionsgate/dmbw/tv/dmbw_madeas_rules_150Kbps.wmv lionsgate.arcostream.net/lionsgate/dmbw/tv/dmbw_madeas_rules_300Kbps.wmv

This movie is so important because of its content and its message. The essence of this move is so clean and anointed. When you see it, you will know what I mean. I had to fight really hard to get this movie made, as well as hire the people that I wanted in the movie. Hollywood’s system is to take your vision and change it into what they want it to be. I stood my ground because of all of you. You have invested in me from day one and I refuse to let you down. So this Movie was done with the vision that was given to me, uncompromised. Let me say thank you for allowing me to be able to do that.

Shemar, Kimberly and I taped the Oprah show on Tuesday morning and the experience was amazing. Oprah really loved the movie and she really blew it out of the water. She was so cool. So don’t forget to tune in to the Oprah Show on March 4th.

If you want to know if the movie is playing in your area you can always log on and go to www.diaryofamadblackwomanmovie.com. If the movie is not in your area call the theatres that you usually go to and demand that they show it!

I want to say special thanks to all of the people who have been showing up for this screening around the country. I know a lot of you got turned away, but just know that on February 25th we all will have a chance to see it. Don’t worry, I’ll be in New Jersey but I will be finding a theatre to go to that day just like the rest of you.

Thanks for making this so special for US.

Tyler Perry
Be blessed.

The ending was abrupt IMO. We predicted what would happen long b4 it did.

What will be Madea's next "adventure"? I think it could be time to "retire" Madea. The play was funny, but it seemed like the "down memory lane of songs" was a time filler. :confused:

Catch Tyler on Oprah March 4th. He said they (DOAMBW cast) will have the entire hour. :D

Yeah the plays have become predictable. I knew something wasn't right with Sonny, Nate and Vanessa, but maybe he can do less Madea and more with other folks, i.e. the Browns and the neighbor lady. I would love to see Sonny again though. :o

A friend just sent this to me from Tyler Perry's e-mail club:

Wow, wow wow! This has been one of the most amazing years of my career and I thank God for all of you. You didn't have to sell out all the shows on this tour, but you did. You didn't have to make Diary number one at the box
office, but you did. Thank you. I know you are with me and I know what side my bread is buttered on, (smile).

I see you all are hitting the message board about me coming to your area. We have one more year on this tour and we're adding a lot of new cities. So get ready to bail Madea out of jail in your town!

As you know Diary of a Mad Black Woman is out on video tomorrow. I hope you are excited to get it. You can buy your copy just about everywhere; Wal-Mart, Target, Blockbuster, Best Buy.you name it. So go out and get it
and see all of the added footage and the behind the scenes antics. I know you will enjoy it.

Let's make this DVD the #1 movie sold this week. Let's show them that we want more movies like this and as you all know the only color that Hollywood respects is green. So go out and get the DVD for yourself or for someone
that is going through. What an effective tool to give to someone that you don't quite know how to tell they need to get out of a bad situation.

Oh by the way, one of the producers of the Oprah show told me that the ratings were so high the day we were on that they will rerun the show. So if you missed it the first time, it airs again June 29th.

Hey, did you see 20/20? What did you guys think? You know I used to be able to go to the message board and see what you thought of the shows but "some of yall aint talking to me no mo? What's up? I'm lonely.talk to me
(laughing out loud)". That was Madea talking. On the other hand, I did get all the e-mails about me and Tyra Banks.

I'm leaving the country for a week on vacation so pray for me as I try to get a little rest before I start shooting Madea's Family Reunion on July 11th. Oh and don't think I'm being selfish because not only am I going on vacation, I am sending my cast and crew and their families on an all expense paid vacation to a destination of their choice because they all worked so hard the past six months. So whisper a prayer for them if you don't mind. It's time to rest and restore, but we will be back soon.

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be able to do this. May God bless you.

Tyler

I did see that segment on 20/20. I was impressed. I will also buy "Diary" at Wally World when I get paid again. I think the other plays are also available there too.

FYI Everyone,

I just came back from my friendly neighborhood Wal-Mart..and all the plays (Meet the Browns, I Can Do Bad All By Myself, Madea's Family and Class Reunions) were on sale for a whopping $12.84 and Diary of a Mad Black Woman was $19.44 for the double DVD ($17 something for the movie alone). Although I went in just for the movie, I ended up with all of them....probably the best $70 I've spent all week.... now... can someone PLEASE lend me that $70 so I can pay the car note???

Just kidding....

I did the same thing.

Did Wal-Mart have the DVDs in the electronics section or at the checkouts (entrance)?

When Dave Chappelle's DVDs came out last month, his were located at the checkouts. Madeas were located in the back w/ electronics. :o

I was disappointed that the Diary play was not released. I guess that will be released after the movie's hype dies down. :confused:

They had Diary of a Mad Black Woman at the checkout stand, but the full display (large cardboard holder with all the movies and plays together) was in the back in electronics. On a side note, I tried to go to Target on my lunch hour and they said they only got 2 of each play at that particular store and the other stores in the area weren't going to carry them at all (probably has a lot to do with the neighborhood I work in) . :confused:

I would like to order a Boris Kodjoe (sans fake afro) and Henry Simmons sandwich to go please. :D

This movie tried to cram in a whole bunch of "messages". Every time a character would take it there, I felt like yelling out MESSAGE!

How about folks quoting some parts of the movie I "know" were not in the previews...guess some saw the bootleg copy b4 coming to view it on the big screen.

I want to support our movies, but I'ma need the theater to have a 9 or 10 am showing on the opening weekend .... cause I know "we" are not gonna get up that early for a movie.

Lynn Whitfield was made for that part!

Boris Kodjoe was fine...even with the Afro. Not really feeling Henry Simmons or Blair Underwood.

I LOVED it!!!! I got off work at noon on Friday and went to the 2:30 showing. Talk about NO crowds, no cell phones, no talking!!! There was this one chick with her squalling baby, but she got told about herself!!! My high (and low) lights:

The wedding was pretty but the live angels and the suspended pianos were too much.

Blair Underwood is getting on my nerves with all these evil roles. Take a cue from Lynn Whitfield; learn how to play evil!!

Of course, Madea was off the hook!!

Stay until the VERY end!!! It's funny!!

From the moment he slapped his fiance, Blair pissed me off. Henry Simmons, what were you there for? I kept thinking he would be there to woo Lisa away from Carlos but nope.

I think you're right, MeezDiscreet, his story must have ended up on the floor. Donna (the "cousin") who went with them to the spa -- her storyline was seriously scrapped as well.

Okay this was bothering me in the movie so I have to let it out.
Boris told her on the bus that he takes his son to the park on Saturday. Next we have Madea taking Foster Child to the school bus. Next we have Boris and his son and Vanessa and her 2 kids at the park. AFTER THAT, Foster Child comes home from cutting school. Boris and her did not hang out at the park on a legit Saturday. GRRRRRRRRR that was my beef.


Kudos, though, to Lisa Arrindell Anderson for her scene where she confronted her mother in the bedroom and relived her childhood rape. Very convincing. I shed some tears. :(

I'll have to pay attention to that next time I see the film. Your cousins had me so aggravated during the movie that I feel like I didn't even see it.


Your cousins and lil' cousins get on my last nerve sometimes. Why were they LAUGHING during the movie whenever someone not that attractive was on the screen? Why were they LAUGHING when Lynn Whitfield retaliated and said what her mother had done to her? Why were some little boys disrespecting women for clapping in the movie when Cicely Tyson stated that we are MORE than our hips and thighs?

I don't understand our people sometimes. I feel like Cicely's message was lost on most of the people in the theater. *le sigh*


Since I couldn't enjoy this film, I KNOW that going to see Dave Chappell's Block Party next week is BEYOND out of the question!!!!!

I had to deal with the little ignorant folx at the movies as well. I will NEVER go to the Lennox to see another movie again (Those from Columbus can feel my pain). They were talking throughout the entire show, and I mean they acted as if there was no one else there! It was a shame that people had to move to the front of the theatre to try to enjoy the movie.

Unfortunately, we had a lot disturbance (kids playing tag running up and down the stairs) which resulted in a group of us getting a free ticket to a future movie.

I think you mean Vanessa knocking the hayle out of her mother and yes I clapped loud. Lynn definitely can play an evil person even better than in "Thin Line Between Love and Hate".

LOS ANGELES - Tyler Perry fans reunited at theaters for another tale of mad black women. "Tyler Perry's Madea's Family Reunion," a comic drama in which writer-director Perry also stars in three roles, debuted as the weekend's No. 1 movie with $30.25 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.


It was a second gold mine for Lionsgate Films, which also released Perry's "Diary of a Mad Black Woman," the movie that opened as No. 1 with $21.9 million on the same weekend last year.

Lionsgate hopes to have a third Perry movie out over the same weekend next year, said Steve Rothenberg, the company's president of distribution.

Book Description
In 2005, Tyler Perry took Hollywood by storm. The movie he wrote, produced, and starred in, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, opened number one at the box office and went on to gross more than $50 million. In its first week on sale, the DVD sold 2.4 million copies. At the same time, Perry was starring nightly across the country in a soldout stage show he'd also written, produced, and scored-Madea Goes to Jail-even as another one of his productions, Meet the Browns, was touring nationally. Every week in 2005, 35,000 people saw a Tyler Perry production. His second feature film, Madea's Family Reunion, opens in theaters in February 2006. Now, this triple-threat actor/playwright/director, has written his first book, and it features his most beloved, most irreverent creation: sixty-eight-year-old grandmother Madea Simmons.

Madea is at the center of all of Tyler Perry's work, and she's always unfailingly outspoken, dead-on, and hilarious. But in Don't Make a Black Woman Take Off Her Earrings, Madea shares more than she ever has before- about herself, and about what she thinks of everyone around her. The topics inimitably covered by Madea (a term of endearment for "Mother Dear") include love and marriage, child-rearing, etiquette and neighborliness, beauty tips, health tips, financial tips, the Bible and the church, and, of course, gun care. She's brazen, feisty, and never at a loss for words, but at the heart of everything she says- and at the heart of all of Perry's work-is a resounding message of faith and forgiveness.

Shockingly hilarious, surprisingly moving, and as rousing and inspiring as a great gospel show, Madea's words of wisdom, memories, and straight-up in-your-face advice will be cherished by Perry's numerous fans- and it all comes just in time for Mother's Day. Tyler Perry is about to take the publishing world by storm.

Tyler Perry — playwright, producer and performer — may be the unlikely heir to Howard Stern's self-proclaimed throne of "king of all media."

Perry's first book, "Don't Make a Black Woman Take Off Her Earrings: Madea's Uninhibited Commentaries on Love and Life," will debut atop The New York Times' nonfiction best-seller list, it was announced Thursday.

Okay here's the big news. Many of you may remember a few years ago I was going to do a TV show. I was very surprised to find out that in TV when you go the traditional route you really have no control over your show.
They tell you what to say how to say it, and when to say it. God
forbid you try to say Jesus. This didn't sit right with me at all. When it comes to me and us, I feel like I know what we want to see so if it doesn't feel right to me I have no problems walking away no matter how much money. I was not about to go on TV and have you all talking about me saying this show is
terrible...what was TP thinking. It wouldn't have been because I
didn't give my ideas, but because they shot it down and I was out of there on the next thing smoking.

With all of that said and because of your investment in me I was
able to write produce and finance 10 episodes of my first sitcom called "House Of Payne." Allen Payne (Jason's Lyric, New Jack city) plays a fireman named CJ whose wife has a drug problem and burns down their house to cover their mounting debt. So, they have to move in with his parents Cassie Davis, and
Lavan Davis form "Madea Goes to jail." CJ has two kids and he and the grinds have very different ideas about raising these kids.
I wanted this show to be what my movies are, funny but serious with life lessons in them. Like my plays, but for TV. Do you remember those shows like "All in the Family", "Good Times", "Rosanna", and "Cosby". The shows that everybody wanted to watch because they not only made you laugh,
but they had some heart. Well, this is one of those shows with heart.

This was a huge gamble, but if I know anything I know my faith. And I know my folks, And that's why I did it. If you give it a chance I know you're going to love it. This has never been done before, not like this, but I know it will work. I'm always asking ya'll to do something, buy this book, pay to see my movie, buy a ticket to the play, buy the DVD. Well, now I can say this wont cost you anything, just a little of your time.

Now, these ten episodes will run only in ten selected cities. If I
had my choice it would have been all over the country. I'm working with a company that needs to know that people will watch it if it goes to the rest of the country. So it airs in New York and Houston on May eighth, and eight other cities soon to follow. Here is the schedule as I know it. As we get
closer to the release date of your city, I'll send you some reminders. I hope I don't work on your nervous by then. (smile) If you are not in these cities and you know people in them, please call them and ask them to watch.

I have the book, it is too much!!! Madea is hilarious in writing as well, but the stuff in there is really helpful. It's not all "self-help-ish" it's more like a heart-to-heart with grandma. One of the sections in there really changed my whole outlook on life (I just happened to read it at a low point). I'm doing 1000% better since Madea set me on a new path. If you need a hand up or just a good laugh, the book will give you both.

Gabrielle Union has been cast in 'Daddy's Little Girl,' Tyler Perry's next movie, which is set to start production next month. The movie, produced by Hollywood power player Reuben Cannon, has been described as a heartfelt, reverse Cinderella ("Cindefella") tale about a young, beautiful and successful female attorney who falls in love with a single father of three daughters who works as a janitor in her office building. Despite her father's strong objections, love triumphs in the end.

'Daddy' is expected to be released next February through Lionsgate, which brought Perry's previous hit movies ('Diary of a Mad Black Woman,' and 'Madea's Family Reunion' ) to the mainstream. "We believe that 'Daddy’s Little Girl' will be another commercially potent, richly rewarding addition to this franchise, and audiences will find his latest film as entertaining as the box office hits that Tyler has already created," said studio chief Michael Paseornek, who negotiated the deal.

Union, who is a Neutrogena Clean & Clear spokeswoman, will next star in the Ryan Murphy-directed dramatic comedy 'Running with Scissors,' due out in October.

The play, written, directed and produced by Perry, will kick off in September in Baltimore and has dates scheduled in Detroit, New York City, Los Angeles, Phoenix and Atlanta. Rounding out the cast is singer D'Atra Hicks, Cassi Davis, Chandra Currelley and actor Allen Payne ('Jason's Lyric').

Speaking of Payne, his Tyler Perry-produced sitcom 'House of Payne' has been sold to the TBS network. The Ted Turner-owned cable channel has optioned 100 episodes of the comedy, which debuted in syndication in limited markets earlier this year. The series will air five nights a week on TBS starting in early 2007 and then run in syndication on Fox networks at a later date. In addition to Payne, the series will also star LaVan Davis, Cassi Davis and Rochelle Aytes ('Madea's Family Reunion'). Perry will also write, direct and executive produce the series. Rumor has it that Perry is planning next to develop a series based on his play, 'Meet The Browns.'

Gabrielle Union has been cast in 'Daddy's Little Girl,' Tyler Perry's next movie, which is set to start production next month. The movie, produced by Hollywood power player Reuben Cannon, has been described as a heartfelt, reverse Cinderella ("Cindefella") tale about a young, beautiful and successful female attorney who falls in love with a single father of three daughters who works as a janitor in her office building. Despite her father's strong objections, love triumphs in the end.

'Daddy' is expected to be released next February through Lionsgate, which brought Perry's previous hit movies ('Diary of a Mad Black Woman,' and 'Madea's Family Reunion' ) to the mainstream. "We believe that 'Daddy’s Little Girl' will be another commercially potent, richly rewarding addition to this franchise, and audiences will find his latest film as entertaining as the box office hits that Tyler has already created," said studio chief Michael Paseornek, who negotiated the deal.

Union, who is a Neutrogena Clean & Clear spokeswoman, will next star in the Ryan Murphy-directed dramatic comedy 'Running with Scissors,' due out in October.
Tracey Ross, Terri Vaughn, Malinda Williams and Louis Gossett are also in the film.

I saw his latest play, "What's Done in the Dark" this weekend. Tyler showed the trailer for this film. IT.LOOKS.GREAT! It opens February 14th.

The play, IMO, seemed very disconnected. It seemed like a rushed production, but Brown was Brown LOL. Allen Payne is a cast member, too. There had been rumors circulatimg that Tamala Mann and David Mann had passed away. That is not true.

How's everybody doing?

I pray that you all are well. It's been a minute since I have written
because I have been on a total whirlwind. I was in Baton Rouge on
Sunday, Atlanta Monday morning, New York Monday night for the
Dreamgirls premier and I was in Chicago today (Tuesday, the 5th of
December).

On top of that I'm taping 10 television episodes of "Meet the Browns"
just like we did for "House of Payne". Not to mention, I've been
getting the Studio up to par, trying to get it ready for the grand
opening party that I'm throwing in February '07. The theme of the
party is called "From Faith To Fruition". I'm even planning a contest
to fly down 10 of the "Board Members" (Message Board) to come and join
the fun at my expense. I'll tell you more about it as it gets closer.

Anyway, so let me tell you what's been going on. "What's Done In The
Dark", my latest play, finished it's first leg on Thanksgiving
weekend. It went very well! Thank you for coming out to see it even
though I wasn't in it. That means a lot to me because, even though I'm
not touring, the people that work for me still need to feed their
families. So, on behalf of all of them, thank you for making their
Holidays great. The show goes back out in January 2007 and there are
still a lot more cities left to go.

I'm on the plane writing this. I'm leaving Chicago right now. I was
here to tape the Oprah Show. It comes on Wednesday December 6th
(today for most of you reading this). I want you to see it. El Divo
(I think that's how they spell it) sings a song first and them I'm up.

The show was great! One of the best parts about it, for me, was that I got to see where the money went that I gave for the Katrina victims. Even though I was not able to rebuild in the 9th ward of New Orleans because it still looks like it did a year ago, I was able to build 15 houses in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and another 5 in Mississippi. And to see the faces of the families that will receive these houses did my
heart some good. So, if you get a chance to watch Oprah I'm on.

Before I go, I wanted to say thank you to all of you who went to the
"Daddy's Little Girls" web site http://www.daddyslittlegirlsmovie.com (http://www.daddyslittlegirlsmovie.com/)
and to all of the men who wrote in to the message board to say thank
you for considering good fathers and good black men. I heard you loud
and clear. And to all of the sisters that pledged support of this
movie for us as men, thank you for standing with us. It opens on
Valentines Day, Feburary 14th. I know you're going to love it.

Well, when I land I'm headed to the Studio to work on "Meet the
Browns". Oh, let me say Merry Christmas now because I may not get
another chance to send another email between now and then. I leave
for South Africa soon, for the celebrations of the opening of the
Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy there. So, if I get a chance I'll
holla, but if not, you be safe.

Much love, Merry Christmas, and God Bless.

T.P.

Remember she stayed in Colorado but no one knew. She didn't tell them where she was all she said was that she was working at the General Store and that she would keep in touch. I would assume that they knew she was divorced. Plus, she probably needed to gain her independance from both Mike and her support system.

LMAO. I DO remember THAT!

My favorite is Meet The Browns. The Sheriff (Rucker) in the movie this weekend plays in Meet the Browns. I wonder if he's going to be the pastor that gets with Pamela Mann's character. :confused:

Good movie. Jill Scott stole the movie, but then her character had more potential for conflict, depth, and range, given what she went through.

Janet? ...she was nice to look at for two hours, but I just don't see her as the type of actress to carry a movie. Given her historical stress point (their baby) I expected more range from her.

Tyler's acting was arright, I guess. That scene where he told his wife (foine azz wifey, though selfish) that he was leaving her, where they were walking through their brownstone? tortorous. I sat there thinking, if Denzel Washington was doing this scene it would be off the chain. His range as an actor is deep.

If any of my boys went biaaa.... like Michael did at the table, dude would not have been around for the end credits. foul to the 5th degree.

As kiml122 (I think) said earlier, it didn't make sense for Jilly's girls not to know she got married...I mean if they were that tight?!?

was it just me or was Jilly's dress at the end having to work waaay too hard to keep everything on lock? I mean, I got love for the busty, but dayum, trying to keep focus on the dialogue was at times not that easy.

But then maybe I missed her explanation to her girls, since I sitting in the movie theatre with all yall's cousins talking back to the screen :o:) .

Overall, a good flick.

The fact that they did not kill or at least wine bottle Mike after he spilled all sorts of secrets shocked me too.

From my POV, I saw Sheila's seclusion and not telling her girls that she was getting married was necessary to her regaining her essence and her strength. She knew they would be in her corner cheering her on, but it was time for HER to encourage her own self through her mess. What if she had come back before she was ready and Mike tried to holla at her? In her weakened state of mind, she would have taken him back and continued the cycle of mental and emotional abuse. So I totally support her isolation. Sometimes you have to do that to get your head together. And she did in a big way.

In terms of her dress and from what I have seen in Tyler's plays, the attire and wigs are not always the best fit/match for the characters' body shapes.

I hear you but I'm not talking about Michael, but rather her decision to get married. Surely she was settled in her own mind before she did that, right?

As tight as sistahs usually are, that just struck me as odd. All she needed was a quick phone call:


"hey, uh, I shot the sheriff, :p and I'm 'bout to be his deputy.... so get up here." :)

Again, sometimes you don't need everybody around you. She's been that route before.


http://www.pledgepark.com/images/smilies/thought.gifWhy am I trying to justify Tyler Perry's plot?:p We all know there is usually some sort of "that ain't right/that don't make sense" part to the plot. Like Jill Scott driving from Georgia to Colorado in one day.:rolleyes:

I didn't want to go there, but seems like Jilly was "readjusted" after a take or so. At first, it seems like she was being suffocated by her girls. Notice her necklace, it was down in her cleavage. Then, next time, she didn't seem so pushed together and her necklace was not anywhere near her cleavage.

However, it seems like I've seen Jilly in a dress like that before. :confused:
Still LMAO @ myself.

I may go again after church in the AM. I was laughing so hard that I missed what Tasha's character said, "uh uh it was me. I wanted to see how long...." Then, she used her fingers as pistols or something. The man behind me was laughing so hard too that I just really missed that. :D

I see why Oprah's audience laughed so hard. They wouldn't tell us!

I cried on this exact part- because I was laughing so hard. Ba-dow! LOL

Naw Tone, that wasn't me that said it, but I truly understand why they didn't know...she really had to find her inner self and strength...remember she kind of said this to Troy in the diner.

I had to Google after I posted to see how long of a drive it was approximately just from Georgia to Colorado, approximately 1500 miles. I know it's 500 miles to get from Charlotte to Cleveland which is 8 - 8.5 hours. Ain't no way in hell I would be able to do 1500 miles in one day solo no matter how good the music was and how eager I was to see my friends.

Didn't that former astronaut do something like this behind the astronaut she was in love with? I know she went MANY miles without using the restroom. Homegirl was GONE! :eek:

Although it was a movie, I guess Sheila was desperate and was willing to do ANYTHING to save her marriage. :rolleyes: :confused:

Houston to Florida seems a bit more reasonable than Georgia to Colorado. LOL Plus Astronaut wore diapers to eliminate potty breaks.

I had the same issue with Days of Our Lives when Chelsea went from 15 to 18 in 6 months, even I saw the episode when she was born born 9 years prior. They said it was director's prerogative or something like that. The director can speed up TV time to fit the plot and everyone's supposed to just nod and smile. I guess Ty saw that article and just ran with it.;)

I never saw Why Did I Get Married the play, but Meet the Browns was the worst to me.

All his plays suck to me. But he drives and wins at movies! I would say Why Did I get Married and I Can Do Bad All By Myself were the WORSE plays EVER!

LMAO at the justification of Tyler Plots. That whole drive from Georgia to Colorado with that little old Mercedes.....c'mon on Ty. But like many have said you just get used to the inconsistencies of a TP movie.;)
Like how Tyler bought that bad new condo after his separation with his wife. That was far from a little bachelor pad. LOL!

I think they could have tamed those bad boys a little better too. She didn't look that much smaller to me because those bad boys were up to her chin!

There were some grey areas in the movie, but still I give it an A+. He's getting better y'all! :p

By the time Madea Runs for President comes out, it will be an Oscar caliber script and performance.

I wonder if Tyler Perry and Mario are related. They both have really big nostrils.:o

I doubt if any of his films are nominated for an Oscar. He doesn't allow the critics to view the film before it is released. Tyler is doing things, Tyler's way. I guess like Spike did back in the 80s.

it looked unnatural, or at the very least it was very clear that he was uncomfortable kissing her.

i think if he's going to continue to be in his movies (not as madea), he should take some acting classes or something so he's at least more comfortable in his skin in front of the camera.

This movie does drain you because I know when Jill was sitting with her girls talking about how she thought God forgot about her, I felt those words and cried right along with her. It was very cathartic for me.

Take some acting lessons indeed.
