Here's the final poster for Tina Gordon Chism's Peeples which stars Craig RobinsonDavid Alan GrierKerry WashingtonS. Epatha Merkerson, Melvin Van PeeblesDiahann Carroll, and Kali Hawk.

Lionsgate set the release date for May 10, 2013.

Produced by Tyler PerryStephanie Allain (also director of the Los Angeles Film Festival) and Paul Hall, the film centers on Robinson's character, a young man enduring the weekend from hell when he surprises his girlfriend by showing up to meet her parents.

The full synopsis for Peeples reads:

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.

Chism, who both wrote and directed the film, makes her feature directorial debut with this movie.

    I think it will be fabulous! Tina Gordon Chism is a great writer and I am looking forward to her directing debut. While this may be similar to other movies, I suspect that the humor will be better than most.

    Doubt it will bomb. My mother and grandmother want me to take them to see this film. There are not many films I can sit through with my mother and grandmother. The last one was "Jumping The Broom." I see this movie as being in the same vein. While it wouldn't be my personal choice it makes for a decent Mother's Day flick. That's what Perry, TD Jakes, and people who make these kinds of films count on.

    It won't be a blockbuster. But it surely won't bomb.

    I wouldn't say that. I found the Alcohol, and the AA meeting scene to be quiet laughable, at least I did.

    This movie is going to BOMB! If anyone went to a theater, please tell me who laughed at this, because when I saw the trailer, I didn't laugh once. Even crap-ass comedies make me believe that someone's going to laugh at it.
