Peeples is a 2013 comedy film produced by Tyler Perry that stars Craig Robinson, Kerry Washington, and David Alan Grier in lead roles. The plot follows a man named Wade Walker (played by Craig Robinson), who is determined to ask his girlfriend Grace Peeples (Kerry Washington) for her hand in marriage. However, before he can pop the question, he must first make a good impression on Grace's family, the Peeples.

The story is set in a small New York town called Sag Harbor, where the wealthy and successful Peeples family resides. While Grace is a high-powered attorney at a top law firm, her family is full of eccentric personalities who are anything but typical. Grace's father (David Alan Grier) is a judge who is strict and intimidating. Her mother (S. Epatha Merkerson) is a former singer who struggles with alcoholism, and her sister (Kali Hawk) is a famous reality TV star who is known for her wild antics.

As Wade arrives at the Peeples family gathering, he realizes that he must work hard to gain the approval of the formidable family members. However, his efforts are continuously thwarted by his own missteps and the family's peculiarities. Despite his best efforts, things start to unravel as secrets are revealed, relationships are tested and Wade realizes that he is not the only one keeping secrets.

Craig Robinson brings a great deal of humor to the role of Wade, playing with impeccable comic timing and wit. Kerry Washington plays the feminist and ambitious Grace, but also showcases excellent range handling drama in larger scenes. David Alan Grier, always an excellent comedic foil, hits it out of the park as Judge Peeples. He does a great job of playing a stoic, intimidating figure yet he still manages to sprinkle in some laugh-out-loud moments. Elsewhere, S. Epatha Merkerson, Diahann Carroll, and Tyler James Williams all deliver fantastic supporting performances, adding depth and nuance to the film.

The film explores themes of love and acceptance, while tackling heavy themes such as addiction, identity, and social status. Many of the characters seem to live two separate lives: the one they present in society and the one that's closer to who they truly are. This tension between who we are and who we want to be is at the heart of Peeples, and it's what makes the film a cut above other romantic comedies. It's a film that asks you to laugh and then to think about deeper things.

The production values of Peeples are top-notch, with Tyler Perry's keen eye for detail and his team's outstanding expertise coming into full play. The camera placement and cinematography are impressive, and the editing is fluid and seamless, making the film an engaging watch from start to finish. The upbeat and energetic soundtrack is worth mentioning, with a mix of old classics and newer tracks that elevate the film's feel-good factor.

In conclusion, Peeples is an uproarious and heartfelt tale of love, family, and acceptance. Although it follows a well-worn formula and tackles themes as old as time, it does so with a charm, wit, and energy that makes it worth watching. Its cast of talented actors deliver memorable performances, elevating the script with a sense of heart and humor. Peeples is a must-watch film, ideal for audiences who enjoy the romantic-comedy genre with a tinge of drama and great performances throughout.

Tyler Perry Presents Peeples is a 2013 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 34 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.4 and a MetaScore of 52.
