Consensus: Peeples is a warm, amiable farce that offers a few chuckles but mostly falls back on predictable plotting and an overwrought message.

Pleasant, if inane - helped along by a likable cast that's clearly having fun.

The slapstick is often clunky, but Robinson has a sweet jester's disposition that keeps many of the gags from collapsing.

Boasts a great cast, plenty of sharp dialogue, and perhaps most importantly, a sincerity and warmth absent from the majority of studio comedies nowadays.

Miami Herald

A meet-the-parents-and-their-rigid-disapproval comedy, with a bit of fish-out-of-water humor tossed in.

Funny movie. I am a die hard Tyler Perry fan because all of his movies have this kernel of human truth in them, no matter how slapstick. In this case, the… More
