    An infectious, warm comedy of family and communication and a promising debut as writer-director for Chism. These Peeples are people one should be happy to meet.

    The all-around excellent cast swings with aplomb from silly to sweet.

    Grier plays the part of the pompous patrician with superb finesse and dry wit, easily the movie's highlight.

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

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

    Director Tina Gordon Chism, who also wrote the screenplay, seems to have relied pretty strongly on Perry for guidance. In particular, she rejects any notions of subtlety, either in the comedy or the weirdly heavy-handed messages about masculinity.

    Unimaginative and painfully generic.

    Peeples shows hilarious enough movie to make you smile. The movie could have improved in its story at bit for sense, but its laughs just fills it in. One of the only good films you should watch of Tyler Perry's movies. Expand

    I don't know what to say about "Peeples," but it's another average Tyler Perry movie. Look, I'm not getting into a lot of flops from Perry because I still don't like him. But "Peeples" is almost great, but still a mediocre movie with no Madea on it. I'll wait for a rental. Expand

    tyler perry presents Peeples a african american family movie and Written and Directed by Tina Gordon Chism . every single movie that is made always has black humor . We've all seen black humor in movies .
    like White Chicks , Scary Movie , little man and tyler perry's madea . all of these movies always are racist . and its like an average tyler perry movie .

    This movie is just so so. Acting just so so and the story seems very predictable. You get a couple of smiles but this is not a laugh out loud comedy. certainly not worth seeing twice that's for sure and I am not so sure it is even worth seeing at all. Maybe wait until you can rent it for a buck from red box. Expand

    Well, I can't say I didn't see this coming. Peeples is a dumb Tyler Perry comedy that just does its own thing. First off, acting was o.k., but when it clashes with the story and the "humor", it just falls apart. I mean, I laughed at some parts, but in the end it just didn't work for me. Second, it's from Tyler Perry. I mean, there were some good Tyler Perry movies like "Diary of a Mad Black Woman", but then there those like "Why Did I Get Married?" This one's no different from any other Tyler Perry movie, but it's (in a sense) more goofier than any Tyler Perry movies featuring Madea. Third, it's extremely forgettable. Just like "The Big Wedding", you probably won't remember this movie in like a week. Just go watch "The Great Gatsby", or "Iron Man 3" this weekend. Don't waste your money on this crap. Lastly, Craig! I know your a funny actor, but some of the roles that you've taken on this year suck. I know your better than that. But if you disappoint me in "This Is the End", I'm done. Don't make me done with you. Overall, just don't watch it. Expand

    Trust Me, if was you I would ignore The Peeples for life. Tyler Perry and Tina Gordon Chisim made this black romantic heartwarming garbage to ruin the season. It had no good comedy and the jokes were seemingly farty and bad. Miss it. Expand

    Badddddddd!! Notice how when you see a black movie all you see is black people and no white people. Who wants to watch a black only movie. The directors just cannot get it right.
    Just terrible black humor that most white people will not get nor thinks is funny but go get it tiger....
