After a year of living with girlfriend Grace (Kerry Washington), Wade Walker (Craig Robinson) is eager to propose to her, but she's still reluctant to introduce him to her snobbish family. When Grace leaves for a gathering at her parents' swanky compound, he hatches a plan to crash the assemblage, charm her folks, and slip a ring on her finger. However, his scheme soon goes awry, and Wade realizes that his only chance of marrying her is a take-no-prisoners confrontation with her father.

Peeples are funny, right?...
Uhh, wrong. Peeples borrows from the funny Meet the Parents and the not-so-funny Guess Who, and gives off the overwhelming feeling of been-there, done-that. There are a couple of nice bits, but as much as I like the individual cast members, they’re all wrong here, and there aren’t many honest moments in the film. Though the movie avoids offensive stereotypes that often invade Tyler Perry comedies, its sweetness and good intentions only carry it so far... <a href="https://www.clearplay.com/MovieDash.aspx?id=4528" class="external" target="blank">See Full Review</a>November 21st, 2013 · Details
Yes, no family is perfect. Yes, most families have secrets and yes, we all should judge others less. However, this doesn't make a film with few positive elements worth viewing.

Backed by producer Tyler Perry, writer-director Tina Gordon Chism serves up a derivative comedy about the mismatch between an earnest young suitor and those he would like to make his in-laws. But the lack of originality on display pales beside the ill-considered humor and freewheeling sexual antics Chism's picture showcases... <a href="http://www.catholicnews.com/data/movies/13mv049.htm" class="external" target="blank">See Full Review</a>
The humor is often crude and silly, but it is so good-hearted and the performers are so appealing that like Wade and the Peeples, it might win your heart... <a href="http://blog.beliefnet.com/moviemom/2013/05/peeples.html" class="external" target="blank">See Full Review</a>
Meeting the future in-laws is fraught with peril and some humor in this domestic comedy... <a href="http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/movies/2013/05/09/peeples-review/2125353/" class="external" target="blank">See Full Review</a>
It would be only a slight exaggeration to say that I sat through Peeples wishing it were far more stupid, tasteless, and ridiculous than it is. In essence, the film is a cross between Meet the Parents and an Adam Sandler idiot-in-a-china-shop comedy... <a href="http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20687749,00.html" class="external" target="blank">See Full Review</a>
