Tyler Perry's 'Marriage Counselor' Gets A New Title & A Provocative First Poster

One of at leat 3 Tyler Perry-branded movies that we’ll see in 2013, formerly titled The Marriage Counselor, is now called Tyler Perry’s Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor.

The dramedy stars Jurnee SmollettLance GrossKim KardashianVanessa WilliamsRobbie JonesBrandy Norwood, and Ella Joyce.

The synopsis again reads:

The film tells the story of Judith, an Ivy League-educated relationship expert who makes her living dispensing marital advice, but is so bored with her own marriage that she breaks her professional code and cheats with a smooth talking client only to realize she has made a huge mistake.

Smollett will star as said marriage counselor “Judith,” while Gross will play her husband; Jones will play “smooth talking client” who has an affair with Smollett; Williams will play the owner of the firm where Smollett practices; Brandy will play Gross’ co-worker; and Kardashian will play Smollett’s friend and co-worker.

The film’s first poster has been unveiled, and it’s quite provocative, won’t you say? 

In Perry’s own words to HuffPoConfessions of a Marriage Counselor is “one of the most provocative movies” he’s made, “sexually and otherwise.

We’ll see just how provocative it is when the PG13-rated Atlanta-shot film hits theaters March 29th, 2013.

Check out the poster below; and as is often the case, the first trailer will likely debut very soon:

This story looks like it was taken out of Zane's garbage can.


This would be a great poster and title…..for some other movie. The poster suggests a taut, sexual thriller along the lines of "Fatal Attraction" or "Basic Instinct". But based on what we've read about the plot of the movie and the fact that its a….I don't know….a Tyler Perry Film, the poster does not sync at all!


I hate Kim Kardashian clouding up the things I watch. First, Drop Dead Diva, and now this! But I love Jurnee Smollett so much. And I've been waiting for her to star in a film so I will watch this. Can't wait!


The poster is horrible… Something a kindergartener created. Worse.

I'm feeling the poster.


um this sounds like the plot to "TRIOS" this will be a WATER down version of that movie..


My reaction is the same for all TP movies…Netflix!

I still feel some kinda way about Kim K. getting the acting credit in lieu of a bonafide and actual ACTRESS. Ugh. Sounds appealing otherwise…I love Jurnee Smollet though so my curiosity about her performance will probably get me to the theater for this one.
