Wade Walker (Craig Robinson) lives with Grace Peeples (Kerry Washington). He relates to children through music and wants to be a counselor. She is a lawyer at the UN and her family is referred to as the "chocolate Kennedys." Wade's plans to propose to Grace are interrupted by her desire to spend the weekend with her family, who he has never met. Urged by a friend (Malcolm Barrett), Wade crashes the family get together with formulaic results.

As it turns out the family has all sorts of issues and secrets which they hide from their father, Judge Virgil Peeples (David Alan Grier). Wade spends his time having an uncomfortable weekend filled with faux paus as he tries to help. The film includes Peeple/people and cheap Moby Dick humor.

For those who like Tyler Perry type comedies, this one fits the bill, but comes off a little stale. It does have some good scenes which made me smile. The film needed to have one more episode to develop Wade's character before he meets the family, then have him either draw from his talents, or better yet, have to do just the opposite to resolve issues with her family. It attempts, but fails to do that effectively, missing the key ingredient of the formula success.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Sexual talk, spanking, role play, implied sex.

We rented it on redbox first as we do now with all movies because you just don't know what to trust these days when it comes to films, music or any entertainment for that matter...so much talentless crap out there but Peeples wasn't a disappointment!I'll admit some moments could've been funnier but the moments that were funny were really funny. The movie is about a girl(Kerry Washington,Ray/Scandal) who's boyfriend shows up to her parents Hamptons home with unannounced with intentions of asking her to marry him. Upon his arrival he's quickly and awkwardly introduced to the Peeples, a family who puts up a front of being pristine and perfect but in actuality they're dysfunctional and don't really know each other that well. The father-a prominent judge who's stiff and proper with his family but disappears each night to frolic the beach in the buff with a female neighbor, the mother- a recovering alcoholic and former disco star, the brother- a cleptomaniac who aspires to be a rockstar to shed his geek rep, the sister- a gorgeous closet lesbian, and the main character who has a secretof her own. (The whole cast is actors/actresses that are some of the best at what they do. Not sure why so many negative reviews, seems like one person gave a bad review and everyone else jumped on the band wagon. If you're expecting Ted or Hangover type humor, it's not here because this isn't that kind of movie and Tyler Perry didn't actually write this so there's no inconsistent drama either...Thank God! Bottom line...
Peeples churned out enough laughs to pick a depressed person up on "one of those days" so it passed the test. I would watch it again!

It was a very today's relationship. It was funny and very entertaining. I rate # 8 for Tyler Perry's Peeples.

What can I say? I loved all of the actors in this light, warm-hearted comedy. I believe it can become a cult classic. Funny lines, funny faces made by the likes of David Alan Grier, and fun scenes that make the Peeples family a memorable one.

This movie had me laughing pretty much most of the entire movie! I'm a huge fan of Kerry Washington anyway but her father, David Allen Grier and fiance, Craig Robinson both really made the movie funny. Glad I purchased this one.

I've watched this movie almost 10 times! I just love it - it's silly fun! The acting is great, the story line is unique. I've been streaming it for free on Amazon prime but decided to buy a copy for my DVD collection.

Bought for myself for Christmas. I love the interaction between Craig Robinson and S.Epatha Merkerson's characters. I don't think many people have seen this movie, but it made me laugh. The price was right, too.

A guy visits his girlfriend's family, for the purpose of proposing marriage. He finds that he has trouble fitting in, and has a particular problem receiving the blessing of the father. The situations he finds himself in are at times funny, with the family members, who all have their idiosyncrasies, proving to be fodder for laughs. This is not the cleverest movie of the year, but it does have its moments. It is certainly not Bridesmaids, but Peeples does have some good comedy in it, maybe just enough to get a slight recommendation.

I rented this online without HD and received a pixilated, out of focus movie. I would not recommend renting this movie online because the quality is horrible, a waste of money.

It's a fun loving movie about care free love that was accidentally mixed with true love. The movie is best for adolescents who don't take marriage seriously and may have issues with the concept of true love. David Allen Grier is a true star, his charter is unique but in sync with the theme of the movie.
