The fiancé of an African-American woman who's met with skepticism and suspicion from her father when she takes him home for the all-important introduction. As the wedding approaches, Dad must come to terms with his future son-in-law.
I laughed a lot more than I expected to. Altho being pretty predictable, it was still entertaining. It's an interesting take on race relations that's still relevant even almost 10 years later. Altho they missed a key opportunity of getting Sidney Poitier to make a cameo in it. A lighthearted 3 stars for me.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
If you don't view Guess Who as a retelling of Guess Who's Coming To Dinner, it isn't that bad. However, it was impossible for me to do so and I kept on comparing the two.
Guess Who's Coming To Dinner was a thought provoking story about a white girl who brings home her black fiancé to her so called progressive parents. It deals with racial issues which were important at the time. The fiancé is a good man, he's a doctor and he won't get married without a blessing.
Guess Who, on the other hand, tries to touch on the race issue but it's just impossible to do so when the roles are reversed and when the movie takes place…
I remember seeing the original "Guess Who Is Coming To Dinner Tonight?" at a local theatre in downtown Minneapolis. What a great moment! Ashton Kutcher is so adorable! Black people and white people together, WHAT HUMOR!! Cracked up!
Black girl brings white man home to meet parents. I couldn't help thinking if the concept was the other way around the film wouldn't even have been made.
Really it's incredibily weak material.
Ashton Kutcher, what to say? He is a wimp, Simon Green, totally undeserving of the foxy black woman, Theresa (Zoe Saldana), he intends to get engaged to. “Beauty and the Geek” redux. Her father, played by Bernie Mac, gets it immediately. Simon is a L-O-S-E-R. He never played any sports. He gets a kick out of trying on Theresa’s lingerie. He’s just quit his job. C’mon, Simon/Ashton. Get a life! But Kutcher is cute. Terminally cute. So you can’t hate this movie, even if it borders on trivial. I only nodded off once, and Bernie Mac was good for a couple of laughs. The tango scene the night before Bernie renews his marriage vows is a hoot. But the “Original Kings of Comedy” or “Mister 3000” it is not. If you can’t borrow this from your local library for free, put off renting it till it hits the discount “favorites” shelves at Blockbuster. It’s fun, but not that much fun.
The ONLY reason to watch this is for the incomparable Bernie Mac
So girl film :)
"Baby turn around and let me see that sexy body go bump bump bump!" Lol... Miss you Bernie
I had heard that this movie lacked chemistry between the two leads, and while that is true I think that kind of works in that it really plays up the awkwardness of there relationship.
What really hurts this movie is the fact that its slow. It feels long and the decent jokes are two far between to make it a worth wild movie.
i watched this bc i felt like watching a comedy for once but idk what to say To Be Honest
Ok so this was decent, it did have Bernie Mac and Ashton Kutcher but the filmmakers missed the whole point behind the original. It was a beautiful film addressing issues in a way that made people think or in some cases rethink their way of well... thinking about interracial relationships.
Drunk hotel viewing.
this shouldn't even be called an adaptation of Guess Who's Coming To Dinner.
Sir. Idiocy? Mr. Stupidity? Dr. Eye Roll? Dr. Puke?
