Wade Walker (Craig Robinson) decides to ask his girlfriend Grace (Kerry Washington) of 1 year to marry him, only the weekend he plans to pop the question she informs him that she is going to visit her parents for a long weekend.
Wade decides to surprise Grace by showing up unannounced at her family’s Sag Harbor “Weekend Home”. Once Wade arrives he finds out that Grace hasn’t told her family anything about him. Her father is Judge Peeples a highly successful Circuit Court Judge. He looks down on Wade in disdain. The story unfolds from there…
I have a tremendous amount of respect for S. Epatha Merkerson and Kerry Washington. S. Epatha Merkerson played Police Lt. Anita Van Buren on my favorite all time TV show the original Law and Order. I love Kerry Washington on the new ABC hit drama “Scandal”. That being said…
“Peeples” has to be the most ridiculous and dumbest movie to open in recent months. This is supposed to be a comedy, but I didn’t laugh. Besides Wade and Grace’s story there were at least 3 other agendas that were playing out. There were some really crude parts. Also the movie ended abruptly. Thank goodness it only lasted 95 minutes. I am not sure I would have wanted to stay longer.
This is a Tyler Perry production. This is definitely not his best work.
The best thing about “Peeples” is that there were 5 previews for movies that I am interested in seeing later this year. Those previews gave me a nice glimpse of what’s to come.
Wait for “Peeples” to come out on DVD or Blue Ray.
