Belle came out strong this past weekend, grossing over $104K playing on only four screens in LA and New York City, for a per screen average of $26,123. These are solid numbers considering it’s limited release by Fox Searchlight, and should bode well for its expansion into theaters across the country in the coming weeks.

The thing to really appreciate about Peeples is its rich and genuine portrayal of the black family at its center. This isn't the hackneyed, artificial blackness we're used to seeing on screen. There's no Gospel proselytizing, no Kevin Hart-like shenanigans, no men in drag. But everything - from the dialogue, to the music threaded throughout the film, to the Romare Bearden and Geoffrey Holder art in the Peeples' home - is infused with black culture in a way that's authentic to us and yet accessible to all.

Review: 'Peeples' Is Essentially A Predictable Sitcom, But The Cast Makes It An Amusing One

Is this Craig Robinson’s first step toward becoming the black Kevin James, at least in terms of leading “play-it-safe” mainstream comedies? It could be, but the other career choices he’s made lead me to believe his destination will prove decidedly more interesting. Being a part of the Apatow crew has given him a few unique comedic roles (he’s one of the better aspects of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s fitfully hilarious, but uneven, “This Is the End,” which opens June 13th and happens to contain one of the most unexpected cameos of all-time) and he’s consistently one of the most relatable characters on “The Office.” He brings his nice guy chops to “Peeples,” and while the results are often humorous, the movie itself is highly generic and might as well be a remake of “Meet the Parents.”
