Sparks fly when Wade Walker crashes the preppy Peeples annual reunion in the Hamptons to ask for their precious daughter Grace's hand in marriage. Wade might be a fish-out-of-water among this seemingly perfect East Coast clan, but he's not about to let himself flounder. 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.
Comedy - While featuring a predominantly African-American cast and aimed at
urban audiences, this comedy has widespread appeal. Fans of stars
Craig Robinson, David Alan Grier, and Kerry Washington will enjoy
this showcase. Some suggestive and drug humor plus language make the
film inappropriate for young children.
PROFANITY: 1 F-word, 2 S-words, a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Mild clothed sensuality, sometimes comic. VIOLENCE: Comic hits. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol, marijuana, mushrooms. ACTION: A bike race. COMEDY: Verbal and physical gags, suggestive humor, drug humor.
Roger EbertFull Review Good The sign of a good comedy is whether you laugh. Coupled with my enjoyment of the performances, I laughed enough to give "Peeples" three stars.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average Written and directed by Tina Gordon Chism, it avoids Perry's sappy sermonizing, as well as his over-the-top characters, and emerges as a predictable domestic comedy with some inspired comic touches.
Washington PostFull Review Below Average ...screenwriter Tina Gordon Chism — who makes her directorial debut with "Peeples" — strongly wanted to convey about race and class, albeit within the context of a predictable, broad, slightly raunchy comedy.
NY PostFull Review Average Chism's characters are pleasingly odd, and though she can't string much of a narrative together — there is a stop-and-start quality to the picture that grows tiresome...
