What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Peeples is a Tyler Perry-produced, Meet the Parents-esque comedy that follows the misadventures of a man who's finally meeting his girlfriend's family. He doesn't make a very good first impression on her domineering father, almost everyone is hiding something, and eventually things start to unravel in a spectacular fashion. Expect several sexual conversations/references, discussion of a same-sex relationship, lots of skimpy/cleavage-baring outfits (as well as a non-graphic skinny dipping scene), some strong language ("s--t," "d--k," and one "f--k"), and a few scenes feature drinking and drugs (pot, mushrooms).
- Families can talk about the kind of laughs this comedy goes for. Is seeing people in awkward/humiliating situations funny?
- What do you think about Grace's relationship with her father? Why does she keep secrets from him? Why do so many other people in the family hide things from him, too? What is the movie saying about the consequences of dishonesty?
- Wade has trouble adjusting to the Peeples' home, where there are so many secrets and lies -- how would you feel visiting such a home?
