Earlier this month, we dropped off a few tidbits about the Tina Gordon Chism-written comedy Tyler Perry Presents Peeples– starring Scandal’s Kerry Washington and The Office‘s Craig Robinson– which follows the always-awkward (yet hilarious) plot of meeting the parents.
The full synopsis for the film reads:
“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 parentsâ€™ swanky Sag Harbor compound, Wade decides to crash the gathering, charm his soon-to-be in-laws and slip a ring on Graceâ€™s finger. However Wade’s plans go hilariously awry when he meets the high-powered, seemingly picture-perfect family whoâ€™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, Graceâ€™s disapproving dad who wonâ€™t accept anything less than the very best for his favorite daughter.”
Peeples, which hits theaters May 10, also features David Alan Grier, S. Epatha Merkerson, Melvin Van Peebles, Diahann Carroll and Kali Hawk. Check out the official trailer below!
