Screenwriter Tina Gordon Chism (Drumline and ATL) steps behind the camera with Peeples — and gets a huge presentation stamp of approval from Tyler Perry — as she explores the story of a regular working guy (Craig Robinson) who takes it upon himself to crash the exclusive Hamptons enclave of his girlfriend’s family to ask for her hand in marriage.
Peeples will play with all of our notions about class differences, but it is far more intriguing to imagine a world where Robinson gets a real shot at being a romantic lead opposite the scandalous Kerry Washington with broad support from David Alan Grier, S. Epatha Merkerson, Diahann Carroll,and Melvin Van Peebles. More power to the Peeples, I say! Now in theaters. (PG-13) Not screened for review
