Story


Sparks fly in the Hamptons when "regular guy" Wade Walker (Craig Robinson) crashes the preppy Peeples family reunion to ask for their precious daughter Grace's (Kerry Washington) hand in marriage. Wade might be a fish out of water among this picture-perfect East Coast clan always trying to keep up appearances, but he's not about to let himself sink. Instead, in a wild weekend of fun, dysfunction and hilarious surprises, Wade is about to discover there's room for all kinds of Peeples in this family, no matter their differences. Writer and first-time director Tina Gordon Chism (writer of DRUMLINE) joins forces with Tyler Perry to present a laugh-out-loud look at the family ties that freak us out ... but bind us together with love.

"Peeples" stars Craig Robinson, Kerry Washington, David Alan Grier, S. Epatha Merkerson, Tyler James Williams, Melvin Van Peebles, and Diahann Carroll, and is written and directed by Tina Gordon Chism. "Peeples" is a presentation of Lionsgate and 34th Street Films, and a 34th Street Films/Paul Hall/Stephanie Allain/Lionsgate production.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..far from original - try not to think about "Meet the Parents" - but the likable cast and good- natured humor go a long way..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
“..the actors manage to draw a few laughs from leaden material as Tyler Perry Presents Meet the Parents..”
by Sheri Linden [Hollywood Reporter]
“..Tina Gordon Chism keeps the innocuous class-meets-crass jokes bubbling, and the actors are amiable, but Peeples often seems to want to turn these characters into benignly goofy role models. Maybe that's why the basic comic collision never explodes..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
