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

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

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

This messy and oftentimes obnoxious comedy relies too often on cheap humor to get its points across.

It's a broad comedy about family dysfunction that provides some scattered laughs amid a story that is woefully familiar and predictable.

How did they convince Kerry Washington to be in this mess? Talk about a scandal!

[Writer/director Tina Gordon Chism is ] good at low-key, observational humor, and the all-around excellent cast swings with aplomb from silly to sweet.

The arch and resolution are some indication of how utterly lifeless Peeples is, both in the sense of lacking vitality and having no real connection to how people think, feel and react to situations.

Let's be honest -- harmless it may be, but bad it most certainly is.

No one looks more lost in the movie than Washington, its biggest right-this-moment star.

Formulaically funny, utterly familiar, fish-out-of-water story with a few absurdly engaging comedic touches.

A Tyler Perry in producer-name only, 'Peeples' is an uneven comedy with a few laughs and no surprises.

Craig Robinson deserves better. So do Kerry Washington, David Alan Grier, and everyone else who stands before the camera in this clunker.

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

Better than pretty much everything else associated with Tyler Perry, but that's still not saying much. A talented cast is wasted.

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

Surely it would have been easier to shoot in Perry's home base of Atlanta, but the significant New England location places the movie at the geographical heart of America's origin story...

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.
