Guess Who

GuessWhoposter2005BB

(out of 5)


A Manhattan couple go to the girl’s parents’ house for their wedding anniversary, providing her () with the perfect opportunity to introduce her new boyfriend () to her family. Saldana has neglected to tell her kin that her boyfriend is white, providing for lots of opportunity for her boorish father () to be just that much more exacting in testing out his new possible son-in-law. Although it purports to be a racially reversed remake of Stanley Kramer’s Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner, this mildly amusing comedy is mostly just a tired retread of Meet The Parents, with much more likeable characters but less continuity. Believing Ashton Kutcher as a stock broker is too much for anyone to swallow, while Mac manages a terrific performance despite the odds, and is matched by a wonderful  as his wife. Kutcher and Saldana, on the other hand, have no chemistry together and you won’t give a fig what happens to them.
