House of Payne Not Funny at all
15 June 2007 | by sbickemsSee all my reviews

I love all of Tyler Perry's work and I have all of his plays on DVD and I will buy his movies also. I was waiting on the show and TBS has been acting like this is going to be the show of the year. The show is not good at all. It is so stereotypical and I am black and we need more positive images of black people on TV. Why does the movies and plays always have to have a crackhead mama and a smart mouth daughter? Come on people the show does not have to put our people in that type of element to survive. The kids on the Bernie Mac Show, My Wife and Kids, etc don't have sassy mouth kids that disrespect the adults. I love Tyler but it seems like most of his plays have the same story line and Tyler fans can not lie about that. Most of his plays have a crackhead mama,etc. The actors are good in his plays but on the show they are over doing the punch lines because the punchlines are not funny. I thought I was the only one at my job that thought the show is terrible until all of the black people at job started talking about it and we keep giving it another chance and we will keep watching to check for improvements but we all agree the first four episode were pretty bad. (The COONING and SHUCKING and JIVING is working our nerves. The Cosby Show didn't have people acting like that either.
