Craig Robinson Gets His Own 'Meet the Parents' in Trailer for 'Peeples'
Despite the fact that Tyler Perry hasn't made a single film that has sparked any remote interest on my end, giving Craig Robinson the lead in a romantic comedy isn't a bad idea. Unfortunately, the first trailer for Peeples doesn't really deliver the goods. While the interaction between David Alan Grier and Robinson has potential, this just looks like every romantic comedy about a significant other meeting their other half's parents we've seen. It's basically Meet the Parents all over again, but presented by Tyler Perry. There's definitely an audience that will enjoy it, and families will give it a shot, but it's not looking good. Watch?
Here's the first trailer for Tina Gordon Chism's Peeples, originally from Moviefone:
Sparks fly in the Hamptons when Wade Walker (Craig Robinson) crashes the preppy Peeples family reunion to ask for their precious daughter Grace's (Kerry Washington) hand in marriage. Wade might be a fish out of water among this picture-perfect East Coast clan always trying to keep up appearances, but he's not about to let himself sink. 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. Tina Gordon Chism (writer of Drumline and ATL) writes and directs Peeples which hits theaters on May 10th. Interested?
Meet The Parents presented by Tyler Perry? Why? Because there are black actors?

pandering to a demographic that doesn't understand they're clapping for a minstrel show. Only the minstrel happens to be black. Tyler Perry is the worst of all the charlatan entertainers. The End. begin hate sequence.
