Dare I say it, but “Peeples” seems like it’s about to be a slight shift towards “no stereotypes” in the Tyler Perry film “Peeples.”
The Lionsgate film is written and directed by first-time director Tina Gordon Chism and presented by Perry to the masses. The film is about a man wanting to ask for his girlfriend’s hand in marriage. The only problem is that she comes from an uppity family:
The film stars Craig Robinson, Kerry Washington, David Alan Grier, S. Epatha Merkerson, Tyler Williams, Melvin Van Peebles, and Diahann Carroll and comes to theaters May 10.
“Sparks fly when Wade Walker (Craig Robinson) crashes the preppy Peeples annual reunion in the Hamptons to ask for their precious daughter Grace’s (Kerry Washington) 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. 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.”
