| Disappointing
This film is an obvious installment of a black version of meet the parents. That's not where the problem lies however. The humor in this story is often too contrived, and Craig Robinson fails to bring enough endearing qualities to the role of Wade. The character Grace, played by Kerry Washington, is rather simplistic, but I still can't see what she would find attractive in Wade. The Dad Virgil Peeples, had potential to save the story, but the writing, did David Alan Grier an injustice. The character of Virgil, unlike Grace, was too complex. His swagger was demeaned, by his abuse from his own Father portrayed by Melvin Van Peebles. His demons were over loaded by this nudist society, meditation, and sexual affairs. The family was a typical upper class dis functional group of degenerates. I think this movie lost traction from the beginning, and while it had a nice texture, with the scenic-locational footage, the character dynamics were lacking, and the humor was weak.
