Took the wife to see this movie last night. We were both very disappointed. The plot had promise but the writing was a disappointment. We both felt with the exception of DAG that the lead actors were horribly miscasted. The reviews we read were good but they were totally wrong. We admire Tyler Perry and what he's accomplished but this was one of his worst.

When Wade Walker (Craig Robinson) shows up unexpected at the Peeples reunion to propose to his girlfriend, Grace (Kerry Washington) he learns more about her bourgeois family than he's ready to know. The trailer makes you believe that Peeples is just another "Guess Who" movie but it has a great cast and is actually funny even if some of the events are unrealistic...but aren't most? Peeples was much better than expected and I enjoyed it from beginning to end! FYI - Tina Gordon Chism is also the young writer of ATL and Drumline so give her a chance!

Some hot women in this one. Everyone acted perfectly. I wish it hadn't of faded to black during that Three's Company part. It's hard to believe that fathers actually care that much about who their daughters marry.

First I want to commend Mr. Perry for showing Black People in a positive light on the big screen. The story was a feel good movie, one of lies, deception and feigning ignorance – standard family stuff. And it's funny too! Predictably there's a happy ending where everyone learns their lesson.
There were two situations that I believe were underdeveloped.
Situation 1: If I am away with my family, and I specifically told my boyfriend not to come, and he stills shows up, you better believe there will be an argument, in this version of the story no such argument ensued…Really??? is not Kerry Washington a black women?
Situation 2: The father calls her ‘almost’ fiance a liar and she does not stand up for her man? Finally she goes to him and gives, what can only be described as the lamest apology ever and HE get's down on one knee and proposes? Really?? Why didn't Kerry get down on one knee, why didn't she take a chance of open rejection?

Rarely do I like to go see comedies ,but this one was funny. I caught myself laughing out loud a couple of times. I've seen movies with mostly black casts do their comedy with physical pranks. Not the case here. It was like "Meet the Fockers" in many ways. I was especially in awe of Dianah Carroll. I didn't recognize her at first ,but she looks great. Good movie and (not because of Tyler Perry-he's had some duds too). But if you're looking for fun , this is it.
