Craig Robinson, meet the Peeples (2013)
Craig Robinson is an open minded guy but when he meets his girlfriend’s family – he finds out how truly unready he is for them in Tyler Perry presents Peeples.
Peeples is the 201 3 comedy written and directed by Tina Gordon Chism and stars Robinson as Wade Walker and Kerry Washington as his girlfriend Grace Peeples.
The plot is pretty simple, Wade decides to surprise his girlfriend at their family holiday but ends up finding them more disturbing then he can handle. He discovers that Grace’s mom is a drug addict, their father likes to bath in the nude, her brother is a thief and her sister is a lesbian. On top of that, her father doesn’t like him much.
The film, in true Tyler Perry style, refrains from using coarse language which gives it a PG13 rating (my own rating). However, the story lack originality and could compared to a black version of Meet the Fockers, but the acting is pretty decent.
Robinson is funny as he tries to fit into the Peeples family jigsaw, yet he sticks out like a sore thumb. However, it does touch on the topic of discrimination quite well. The characters despite being the same ethnicity and race are prejudiced toward each other.
