Tyler Perry is dominating Hollywood right now. There’s no one else out there putting out movies and television shows every year. He recently teamed up with Oprah to bring new scripted shows to her network, OWN, and now a trailer has been released for his new comedy.
“Peeples” stars Kerry Washington, Craig Robinson and David Allan Grier. The film focuses around Wade, Craig Robinson’s character, who wants to propose to girlfriend Grace, Kerry Washington, but wants to meet her family first, The Peeples. The Peeples are referred to as being the “chocolate Kennedy’s” and Wade is a regular Joe, so he’s nervous about meeting them.
Of course when he finally meets the family, things don’t go according to plan. Especially with Grace’s father, played by David Allan Grier, who is a federal judge.
It’s rare for Tyler Perry to release a comedy not based on his famous character, Madea. Usually, the movies he directs and produces that don’t have Madea in them are dramas. It will be interesting to see if this becomes a pattern. I was getting a little worried about the Madea franchise, seeing how the last couple of movies based on her didn’t do so well at the box office. I’ve seen them all and I’m definitely going to see this when it opens. I love Tyler Perry and his movies!!
“Peeples” also stars Dihann Carroll, Melvin Van Peebles and Tyler James Williams. The comedy will hit theaters on May 10th.
