Here’s a full poster for Tina Gordon Chism’s We The Peeples – now titled Tyler Perry Presents Peeples – which stars Craig Robinson, David Alan Grier, Kerry Washington, S. Epatha Merkerson, Melvin Van Peebles, Diahann Carroll, and Kali Hawk.
Lionsgate set the release date for May 10, 2013.
Produced by Tyler Perry, Stephanie Allain (also director of the Los Angeles Film Festival) and Paul Hall, the film centers
on Robinson’s character, a young man enduring the weekend from hell
when he surprises his girlfriend by showing up to meet her parents.
The full synopsis for Peeples reads:
Wade Walker is eager to propose to his
girlfriend, Grace Peeples. But after a year of living together, the
beautiful, successful Grace is still cagey about introducing average guy
Wade to her ambitious, upper crust family. So when Grace leaves for an
annual reunion at her parents’ swanky Sag Harbor compound, Wade decides
to crash the gathering, charm his soon-to-be in-laws and slip a ring on
Grace’s finger. However Wade’s plans go hilariously awry when he meets
the high-powered, seemingly picture-perfect family who’ll do whatever it
takes to keep up appearances. Wade soon finds himself caught in a web
of white lies and comic dysfunction, and realizes that his only hope of
ever marrying Grace means a take-no-prisoners face-off with Judge
Peeples, Grace’s disapproving dad who won’t accept anything less than
the very best for his favorite daughter.
Chism, who both wrote and directed the film, makes her feature directorial debut with this movie.
The trailer didn’t particularly hook me, but I think it’s because the film feels too much recent black marriage romcoms like Jumping The Broom, Our Family Wedding and others – based on the trailer anyway. I obviously haven’t seen the entire film, but I will when the time comes, hoping to be pleasantly surprised.
