A Tyler Perry produced take on “Meet The Parents”, Tina Gordon Chism’s “Peeples” is saved by a unique and humorous cast in the form of Craig Robinson, Kerry Washington, and David Alan Greir, but is far too predictable and laugh-less to be even considered average. With strange plot divergences like Tyler James Williams involvement as the youngest son, Simon, and the obviousness of most of the plot devices, the film falls flat for being a black adaptation without adding anything of worth. Robinson does his best as he loses his wallet, gets blamed for everything wrong over the weekend, and discovers every family members secret, in only a few days time. Washington is gorgeous and simply reminds us that she deserves better. Grier shines in his role as the over protective parent, but even his role is ruined by delving into his personal life a little too much. Not quite the Stiller-De Niro chemistry of “Meet The Parents”, Chism’s film proves better than most films with Tyler Perry’s name on them, but still doesn’t quite hit its mark.
