film: Guess Who

Guess Who 2/5

Some folks are comparing this to Meet The Parents, the smash hit with Ben Stiller and Robert DeNiro. I would compare it to Guess Who's Coming To Dinner, the 1967 Sidney Poitier/ Spencer Tracy/ Katherine Hepburn film in while the daughter brings home a black guy.

Ashton Kutcher and Zoe Saldana

Black Theresa brings home her white boyfriend to attend her parent's wedding ceremony. Bernie Mac, the father, is stunned and upset that the Simon turns out to be white, yadda yadda yadda.

It's too long, Bernie Mac is only mildly funny and it's hopelessly predictable. There is too much unnecessary dialogue and too much lowest common denominator humour to give this picture anything other than artificial heart.
