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.

Modest in aspiration, Peeples is by no means a must-see movie, but it's awfully charming all the same.

Laremy Legel

Saves itself from a complete belly flop by its good-natured charm.

It's often rote and by-the-numbers, but writer-director Tina Gordon Chism injects the proceedings with enough smart chat, clever situations and spot-on casting choices to make this well-traveled road feel a little less stale.

Movie Mezzanine

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

Chicago Reader

Writer-director Tina Gordon Chism implies that people should accept each other for who they are, but with no genuine insight to back up this moral, it feels hollow.

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

nothing is delved into deeper than is necessary to get to the next gag

Funny and entertaining film. The story though it looks to resemble most family gathering movies has its own interesting twists. A good directing debut with… More

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

Meeting is such sweet sorrow when it comes to Peeples, a Focker of a dreadful comedy from producer Tyler Perry. Despite a willing and able name cast, the movie… More
