A funeral can be a time for laughter (and lessons) when the kooky Brown family gathers to bury Brown's (David Mann) 107-year-old father. It's a foot-stomping sound-stirring send-off and a great reminder--"Ain't nothin' lik...  more »

Movie Reviews

Exceptionally done!
Musac Critic | 07/29/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This play, to be completely honest, was one of the funniest that I have ever seen in my life. I just can't stop watching it. It is a hoot! Not only is it funny, but it ends with a very positive message, just as all of Tyler Perry's plays do. It is amazing when you can mix comedy with Christian themality in order to portray a positive message here.

Essentially, after "Pop Brown" dies, the dysfunctional Brown family comes together to plan his funeral. Through planning his funeral, many different problems and issues arise within the family including a lonely woman who ends up finding love, a woman torn up inside because of her murdered child along with a husband whom she has tensions with, a husband who has cheated on his wife, and three sibilings as well as the whole of the Brown family who in the end discover the importance of family. I won't reveal anymore about the play because I want you to discover it and discover the wonderfulness of it for yourself. Believe me, this play is a keeper as well as the other ones in the Tyler Perry Collection.

My only thing against MEET THE BROWNS (which is my favorite of Perry's collection) is that Madea isn't in it. However, you'll discover "Brown" as he is called steals the show! 5 stars easily."

Play was awesome

"I saw the DVD of this play, and it was hilarious. The first time I watched it, I almost hurt myself laughing at the whole Brown clan. I love Madea, but Madea ain't got nuthin on Brown.

The family gathers to have a funeral for Pop Brown, and as many people know, funerals are filled with more drama than day-time televison. There is cheating, unforgiveness, and jealousy. At the center is the very lovable Brown and his daughter Cora.

David Mann and Tamela Mann are great in this play. Not only do they showcase great acting ability, they can "sang" like it ain't nobody's business. The rest of the cast are wonderful, and there are truly no weak links to this cast.

I could go on and on about how great this play is, but see it for yourself. Get the DVD and not the bootleg."
Introduction to Laughter!

"This play was funny! I didn't think that I would like a play without Madea but I was wrong!

First of all, Mr. Brown is always funny, he bounces off of Madea and vice versa. Cora takes up where Madea leaves with a gun in her purse. The actors are all good singers and play their roles very well.

I especially loved the sister Vera who drinks throughout the play and is in love with the Reverend. The scene that she has with her son who is a doctor is too funny.

This is a must see especially the song Will you love on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday et. I loved this play! All of the actors were wonderful."
