With exactly a month to go until the release of Tyler Perry Presents Peeples (or just Peeples), we got our hands on a new trailer for the film which stars Craig Robinson, David Alan Grier, Kerry Washington, S. Epatha Merkerson, Melvin Van Peebles, Diahann Carroll, and Kali Hawk.
The rom-com 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. It’s about time someone made a Meet the Parents with black folks. After all, any equation of wacky family plus new boyfriend plus a kinky sex scene is guaranteed to produce laughs.
Want more details? Here’s the full rundown.
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.
Peeples hits theaters on May 10.
