Kerry Washington, who is presenting at this Sunday's Oscars, is staying in year around. It seems like she never takes a break, and has a movie in theaters at all times, as well as a hit show on ABC. "Scandal" star Kerry Washington's new film, Tyler Perry Presents Peeples--formerly Tina Gordon Chism's We The Peeples--is hitting theaters May 10th. And the up close and personal promo posters were just released.
Here's the full synopsis of the flick, all about a man enduring a weekend from hell to impress his girlfriend's family:
Wade Walker is eager to propose to his girlfriend, Grace Peeples. But after a year of living together, the beautiful, successful Grace is still cagey about introducing average guy Wade to her ambitious, upper crust family. So when Grace leaves for an annual reunion at her parents’ swanky Sag Harbor compound, Wade decides to crash the gathering, charm his soon-to-be in-laws and slip a ring on Grace’s finger. However Wade's plans go hilariously awry when he meets the high-powered, seemingly picture-perfect family who’ll do whatever it takes to keep up appearances. Wade soon finds himself caught in a web of white lies and comic dysfunction, and realizes that his only hope of ever marrying Grace means a take-no-prisoners face-off with Judge Peeples, Grace’s disapproving dad who won’t accept anything less than the very best for his favorite daughter.
Craig Robinson as Kerry's love interest? Hilar.
Kerry & Craig's co-stars include David Alan Grier, S. Epatha Merkerson, Melvin Van Peebles, Diahann Carroll, and Kali Hawk. Tyler Perry seems to have taken the (publicity) helm of the film as producer, and we'll be seeing.
