A marriage is one of the greatest institutions in the world. It transcends happiness, laughter and the gift of love. Our culture today is designed to create futile circumstances that are sometimes hard to overcome in marriage. The #1 urban playwright in the country introduces his newest stage production, Tyler Perry's "The Marriage Counselor" to profile relationships that put the quest to the test and tells the story of how in the end "love conquers all" (or makes you smarter.)

However, before you get to the end, Tyler Perry the comedic mastermind of this genre presents stories of the essence of marriage i.e. we love, we trust and we get mad and we compromise! Roger Jackson is a hard working good man, an accountant by profession. He takes care of not only his wife Judith but his weed smokin' pop Stanley and her retired bible totin' mom, TT.

The two parents living in the same household do not get along. Judith, the professional ivy league educated marriage counselor gives marital advice everyday. But she can't get her own marriage together! The scene switches to the married couples seeking advice. Shattered, confused and broken. Dr. Jackson has an answer for them all but a turn of events causes the marriage counselor to need some advice once a certain college friend drops by the office! The surprise twists and turns are unpredictable after that. Who are the real marriage counselors? What makes your marriage sizzle or fiz?

Tyler Perry's "The Marriage Counselor" transforms the art of marriage, life and family with this entertaining experience on stage. It is a reflection of what goes on in married life.The 10th production by Tyler Perry is truly a must see event with new extraordinary singing talent that is amazing. Don't miss the 10th stage production! Mr. Perry, a writer, music composer, producer, director, actor, filmmaker extraordinaire has had 9 successful stage productions and 2 collaborations since 1997 and 5 hit movies; and two TV sitcoms.

    This is a question directly about the Marriage Counselor movie. You've been interviewed in several of the works that Palmer Williams, Jr. has been in and said you want to make him a star. But I don't understand he was hilarious on House of Payne and especially the Marriage Counselor DVD Play. So, why wasn't he cast in his previous role from the play??? He would be great.

    I think all the fuss about Kim Kardashian being in one of Tyler Perry's movie is because she & her family are a little over the top. The swearing, having a stripper p*** in their home and Kim posing for playboy. Not exactly role model types. However, I will give Tyler the benefit of the doubt and hope that he is capable of pulling a real perferformance from Kim and not some reality over the top stage acting. Everyone deserves a second chance. What has offended me mostly is that has become and either or race thing African American versus Caucausion or any others. That is not fair to those of us who are caucasion and have African American family. Marriages, children, etc. I think Tyler does his best not to alienate anyone.

    I am and always will be a fan of Tyler Perry and the messages that he portrays in his movies and shows. A lot of people always say that everything that he produces has the same meaning but I feel that the people that say stuff like that are close minded and go in the movie feeling that way. If you expect it to be a certain way then that's all that you will receive from the movie. I am not a huge fan of Kim Kardashain but I know that Tyler Perry is a wonderful and skilled producer and knows exactly what he is doing! I can't wait to see this!

    I've always been a huge fan of Tyler Perry's movies, but I just recently found out Kim Kardashian will be part of "The Marriage Counselor," not to mention as a marriage counselor!? Honestly, I don't see how she even landed the role? It's quite confusing actually. I will not be supporting this movie. I really hope Mr. Perry gives "some" importance to his audience and makes better choices for actors and actresses in his future movies.

    I will still go see the movie, because I support Tyler Perry, but no I don't like Kim and her family,cause they are gold diggers...but Tyler knows what he is doing.....look at the part she is playing....if you seen the play then you know it fits her.....duh....cuz on the play the white girl was a gold digger....perfect part.....

  • Shelly Baker Charlottesville,VA

    Can't wait to see the movie. I don't understand what the big deal is with Kim Kardashian being in the movie especially since she is just a SUPPORTING ACTRESS. All these people talk about God and Jesus, well I would like to think Jesus wouldn't judge someone he has never met. It's a shame all these grown folk have to get schooled by a 19 year old.

    Mr. Tyler....You did not get this far in your career and establishing your "Brand", by listening to the people who did not or have not contributed financially. I welcome the diversity that you bring to film and television and those who don't should not go to see it....but you and I both know that they will anyway because of who you are and the quality you present. Sincerely, Stephanie Charlotte, NC

      Hi Tyler, Just a "shout out" to wish you a Happy Holiday. Also to encourage you to reflex on---ALL---of the WONDERFUL memories and GREAT times you and your mother were "BLESSED" to share. Isn't it WONDERFUL how GOD allows us to have our,"low and high" periods, our awards, rewards, and mountaintop experiences---ALL of which is---so that "HE can" bring us to the purpose in life that HE designed and ordained for us. Too often we--(ESPECIALLY those of us who profess to be Christians)--want "the miracle", but not the ordeal and circumstance/situation,that MUST take place--before--HE can give us "our miracle". GOD has done this in such an "powerful" way for you. Those who does not know or appreciate the fact that----GOD'S "ways and thoughts" are way above ours are missing just how much GOD is using you to first (1) make us laugh at ourselves and see that we do have the obligation to make reasonable and SENSIBLE decisions to make our---"life's path" the best we can when allow GOD and those "wise" people HE has brought into our lives guide us to the path that has been instill in "each of us" by birth. GOD has made you an Change Ambassador for millions of us. Tyler, I believe that too many people are looking at the---GREAT" humor in your plays,T.V. shows, and movies and are---"TOTALLY"---missing the point!!! First, you get us to "loosen up",relax and for a few minutes--not take ourselves so seriously, and at the end of this we have been shown the way--or--ways we need to use to have a life that we and others will value and FREE us from the pasts frustrations and unhappiness that have ---"OVERSHADOWED"---FAR TOO LONG!!!!!!!!!! You are LOVED!!!! ENJOY!! your holiday. Continue to let GOD use you in the way/ways HE wants to. HE did not brings you from homelessness and the talent to "encourage" others---for you to be discouraged by any of us. I have this ---"ONE"---truth in my life-girl doesn't need our advice---HE just want us to be faithful,trusting, and AVAILABLE to HIM!! Joyce


    Dear Tyler- The one thing I have always enjoyed about your movies is that you employee "real hollywood actors and actresses" regardless of color. I am not motivated to see this movie for several reasons. 1- Kim K is not an actress 2- Kim K as a marriage counselor? REALLY? COME ON MAN!! You mean to tell me there was no other actress that you could hire for this role. Kim will be fine. Keep our actors / actresses employed!!!!

  • Lorraine Washington, DC

    I am a Tyler Perry fan and have enjoyed all of your work. Unfortunately, I am not motivated to pay money to see the film, The Marriage Counselor because of Kim K. For you to justify that it is in the best interest for the film and she has to potential to be a role model with a " large Twitter following" ? Enough is enough. Good luck with your future work.

  • ITTY Canada

    So because this woman has made some questionable choices in her life, she must not work? @CJ I totally agree with you 100%. Mr. perry as your words in the bible says "THE VERY THING THAT BLESSES YOU, WILL CONTINUE TO BLESS YOU! Maybe it will take someone like you to show her a different path in life, and how to be a star. for all these people speaking negative about you and your choices, there are many more who are with you. I WILL LOVE AND SUPPORT YOU UNTIL YOU DISAPPOINT ME! AND I DO NOT SEE THAT HAPPENING ANYTIME SOON.:) STAY BLESSED

  • KaiLynn United States

    Leave Tyler Perry and Kim K alone.. Y'all sound so petty. Forgetting that everyone makes mistakes in life, and if your hands aren't 100% clean you should not judge anyone. I think it is a great move for Mr. Tyler Perry to cast her so that she can show that she is truly a talented woman beyond everything the media says about her. I will definitely support the film, because with all of his movies, for me they'er about the message, not the actors.

      It's dosen't matter how your are God forgives a person a person know matter what they have done. I believe if you repented for ever it was he will create you a clean heart and renew the right spirit. So what ever it is you hold you head up high and keep walking with Jesus.
