Movie Review: The Peeples
Tinseltine wrote this review 3 years and 10 months ago
There's a lot that sounds funny in this movie about a wealthy African American family "The Black Kennedy's" who, lead by patriarch Virgil Peeples (David Alan Grier), look perfect from the outside until the arrival of an unexpected guest, Grace's boyfriend Wade (Craig Robinson) unintentionally begins to unravel family skeletons left and right. Too bad the sound of actual laughter is few and far between.
Still, the movie is no more or less entertaining than The Big Wedding (click for T &T post), yet in many ways I feel the Peeples family, which includes notable actors S. Epatha Merkerson, Melvin Van Peebles, Tyler James Williams (Everybody Hates Chris) and Diahann Carroll is more endearing.
