When a man surprises his girlfriend who has left for a family gathering, they all get more than he had bargained for. Disfunctionality is the essence of this modern family. The son steals continually, the sister is a lesbian and the mother drinks a solution mixed with “magic mushrooms”. Not the kind of family most people want to be associated with. While the film is funny at times unfortunately many of the issues go unaddressed.
Yes, no family is perfect. Yes, most families have secrets and yes, we all should judge others less. However, this doesn’t make a film with few positive elements worth viewing. “Peeples” is not a film for a Dove Approved family.
