Peeples not to be confused with the delicious marshmallow Peep or the department store which I am not even sure exists anymore but was once named Peebles. No Peeples is not Popples, I remember those silly stuffed toys that you could turn into balls…yeah, I had several and I’m no ashamed. Soooo Peeple, as in Peeples the new comedy which is set to release in movie theaters on Mother’s Day weekend. A comment on the YouTube trailer says, “Black meet the parents” which I can see that being the case, but you know something Meet The Parents was freaking funny so I’m definitely going to check out Peeples. Plus I really like Kerry Washington, she was in a couple Psych episodes, as Mira Gaffney, you know because she was married to Gus for five seconds. And really who doesn’t love David Grier! DAG!
Anywho, check out the newly released poster for Lionsgate’s upcoming film, PEEPLES. You won’t want to miss this hilarious comedy, full of priceless laugh-out-loud lessons in what NOT to do when meeting your future in-laws, starring Craig Robinson (Wade Walker), Kerry Washington (Grace Peeples), and David Alan Grier (Virgil Peeples). Catch a glimpse of the chaotic surprises to come in the FINAL POSTER, a family portrait gone wrong!
SYNOPSIS: 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.
PEEPLES will hit theaters everywhere on May 10, 2013 be sure to watch the trailer posted above the title! So funny!
