This is a good comedy that is not overwhelmed by its main subject . (by MyGoodWish)
Bernie Mac and Ashton Kutcher are teamed perfectly for this film because they are fun to watch together.The story keeps moving along at a good pace and doesn't do the usual joke setups that we have to suffer through so much in comedies lately.The dialog is well written for all of the characters-not just the leads.Whoever cast this movie did a good job because everyone was of good quality and fit perfectly. I was happy to see that interracial relationships were dealt with candidly but not with the usual tasteless one liners.It's so hard to find a good comedy lately , I mean one you <more>
actually laugh at. I liked this movie , it's a good comedy, I laughed a lot.
What is with all the bad reviews? (by b-Radiation)
I enjoyed this movie. I thought it was a heart-warming story of man in honest love. It shows off how some people can be in the real world honestly. I can't believe what people have said about this movie. I was laughing all the way through.I don't know a lot about acting, but I thought the acting was pretty good. Bernie Mac was hilarious as Mr. Jones, and Ashton Kutcher was perfect as his counter-part. I was laughing all the way through the whole movie, but still had a good moral about acceptance.Now I have not seen the original movie, so I have no idea how this stacks up. I thought <more>
the story well written with more of a sex-humor story in mind, but there are plenty of clean jokes that I laughed at.Overall this movie was pretty good. I am probably going to go back to the theater to see it again. I had a great time and I am sure you will to.10/10 stars.
I found "Guess Who" to be absolutely delighful. Even though there are a lot of differences between "Guess Who" and "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner", I still see a resemblance. I also think that Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy would have enjoyed it. Bernie Mac and Ashton Kutcher did a wonderful job. They seem to work well with each other.As far as the movie is concerned, I found nothing racial in it, except for the scene at the dinner table when Simon makes some racial jokes, but remember it was only a movie. Yes, the jokes weren't necessary but they <more>
were part of the script and movie, and I think no one should have gotten offended because it was just a movie.As far Bernie Mac's character and Ashton Kutcher's characters getting off to a slow start, sometimes that happens between two characters. Eventually you see them start a friendship near the middle of the movie.Even though there were some serious things happening in the movie, basically the movie was very funny. A perfect example is when Bernie Mac's character doesn't believe Ashton Kutcher's character about him knowing about the racing circuit and tests him by racing him in a go-cart, I found it extremely funny when they start to race each other and try to beat each other and land up tearing through the hedges and getting stopped by a police officer. Another funny example is when Ashton Kutcher's character teaches Bernie Mac's character the tango and later on Bernie Mac's character denies to his wife that he was taught the tango by Ashton Kutcher's character.This movie had a great cast. Zoe Saldan is extremely great in this movie and so is Judith Boot, as is Ashton Kutcher and Bernie Mac.I basically found nothing offensive about the movie except the scene at the dinner table. But like I said before the movie was absolutely delightful and very funny
I realize right off the bat that my 10 mark looks a bit to high. I admit it, this movie should really be something like an eight, but I have a specific marking style. You see, every film I see starts with a 10. If while I'm seeing it I can come up with something I would have done to make it better if I were making it then I take off a point. So, I say, "I would have had better character development," there goes one point out the window for the film.If I can't think of a way that the film can be improved then it's kind of dumb if I start taking off points. Even if I <more>
didn't like the film, there is no way they could have made it any better.With this film I can't honestly come up with a way to improve it so it gets a 10. Also, I really enjoyed it, so that's always a plus. ; Once again Bernie Mac finds himself in a pretty series/drama film, but this time, unlike with the film Mr. 3000, there is a lot of comedy. Now, remember this film is trying to be a drama above all, so even though there is a lot of comedy and you will chuckle quite a bit from time to time it never really reaches the you laughing your head off level so it can keep itself as the series film it needs to be. Now, that isn't to say there aren't a lot of over the top gags. There's tones of them. But, I found that most of the time they were down played and even though they were a bit out there they were still understandable scenes. So, this is not the funniest film you will see, but it's cute and it also has something else going for it.Yes, this is yet another remake. Maybe before you sit down to see this film you should try to brain wash yourself into thinking that this film is the first of its kind. I think it's more enjoyable that way. We're all a bit sick of the remakes.Well, anyways, the plot is this, Simon Green Ashton has just quit his job and is now meeting with Percy Jones Bernie Mac his soon to be father in law. Percy is a bigot, and proud of it. Needles to say he is not impressed with Simon being white, and not only that, but he soon clicks into the fact that Simon is lying about something, namely him quiting his job, and Percy starts his quest to expose Simon for the fraud that he is.We've all seen films before where they turn racial differences into a joke. Well, this is the other thing that the film has going for it. You see, with most of those other films they over do things and make it seem that everyone in a specific race loves rap and hip hop. Well, this just isn't true. This movie does not make fun of the groups that are being mistreated by racism. It does not turn them into the but of the joke by having them use countless hip hop terms and trying to be cool. It makes fun of racism itself. The insult becomes the but of the joke in this film and I couldn't be happier. Ashton doesn't come off as the white stereotype and Bernie doesn't come off as the black stereotype. They come off as regular Joes. In fact Bernie even reminded me of my dad at times. So the film is realistic in this sense and quite enjoyable in this sense to.Also, the film kind of tells it like it is, but it's a heart filled drama/comedy so it will never bring you down. Things that it points out to be true is that love isn't perfect and there is no happy ending, life is just on going, and there will always be racism and that we are just going to have to deal with it, like it or not. These themes are very true and illustrated well in the film. All you can do is kind of nod in agreement and then smile at the fact that the film still shows off the happier side of life.It's true that Bernie and Ashton play the same character they always do, so you wouldn't really want to call them very good actors, but hey, they are enjoyable and likable characters. They make the film.Well anyways, it had heart and was very enjoyable, so ya, a 10 fits well.
I am stunned to see the low rating that this movie is getting here. I saw "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner?", and I found it rather stereotyped and one-dimensional. And "Adam's Rib" is my favourite movie of all time, so it's not like I don't appreciate Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy. "Guess Who," on the other hand, is fresh, touching, funny, and honest. The idea of switching the races from the earlier movie -- a white guy being introduced to a black family -- is a good one, and the movie tackles racial issues much more head-on and with an <more>
immediacy that affected me. The scene in which the white boyfriend tells jokes that has the family roaring with laughter but then suddenly frigid when one joke goes too far is highly symptomatic of the confusing problems behind the race issue: namely, that there are identifiable differences culturally between most blacks and most whites, but that some differences are more sensitive on both sides , and that, in the end, we all wish they would go away."Guess Who" always deals with serious relationship issues in a way that had my wife in tears. Yet, in spite of its seriousness, it was still basically a comedy that made me laugh out loud repeatedly. Unless racial issues are too serious for you to laugh at or too sensitive for you to want to think about, or if you don't like Bernie Mac's style of humor, this is a terrific movie that hits on all cylinders.
I saw this movie tonight in a sneak preview and I was not disappointed. I was apprehensive in seeing it, but I made a great choice. All I can say is see this movie when it comes out. There is not one minute where you will not be rolling in laughter and Kutcher and Mac are excellent in their roles. Better than the original, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. Kutcher plays Theresa's boyfriend, who happens to be white. Bernie Mac plays the father who is apprehensive about his daughter dating a white man. Hilarity ensues for the next 2 hours. Much like Meet the Parents but personally I feel a <more>
better made movie, without the super star power of De Niro, etc. The 25th of March this comes out. Rush to your local theater. This movie deserves to be Number 1 next week.
"Guess Who" like "Meet the Parents"? (by Der-PBremer)
At first I thought this movie would be some kind of cheesy spin off on Meet the Parents except with an interracial relationship. It turned out to be quite original and absolutely hilarious. Although the plot was similar to Meet the Parents the boyfriend has to win the reluctant father's blessing , the conflicts still ended up being creative and original. On top of being original, I thought that this was the funniest romantic comedy I have seen for quite some time. This is because of the fact that the boyfriend happens to be white which provides plenty of room for some racial jokes. <more>
Another element that makes this film funny is the characterization of the two male characters. Bernie Mac plays the character Percy, the intimidating father who's defensive of his daughter, and Ashton Kutcher plays Simon, the clumsy, awkward, white boyfriend who's just trying to impress the father. When these two characters are put together, they create the funniest quarrels and moments. I think everyone who's looking for some laughs and who like the Meet the Parents plot should see this movie. 8 out of 10
I have not seen Guess Who's Coming to Dinner and so I am in no position to declare Guess Who as an adequate remake. I do not know that source material it was based on and so when judging its script I will, by default, give credit to the film that I actually did see.That said, I enjoyed Guess Who much more than I thought I would. I was expecting a film built on weak chemistry and a money whoring cast. Now, the ladder may be true but it didn't affect that on screen presence that sells a film. Ashton Kutcher and Zoe Saldana have the perfect mix of trust and understanding with sexual <more>
sparks and heated eye contact. If you saw them walking down the street you'd probably say 'Aww, how cute'. As well as their chemistry with each other, they both share some with Bernie Mac, Saldana's father and Kutcher's soon-to-be father-in-law. It's connections like these that make one comedy float and another sink.In the original, Katharine Houghton, the white daughter of Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, brings home a black man, Sidney Poitier. The tables have turned now as Theresa Saldana brings home her white fiancée, Simon Kutcher to meet her parents Percy Bernie Mac and Marilyn Judith Scott . Every father worries about who his daughter will bring home but Percy has an especially tight grip on his daughter and is not prepared to give her up to just any man. He is even colder to Simon when he learns that Simon no longer has a job and plays no sports, although he did lie about test-driving for Nascar. And when he walks in on Simon and Theresa wrestling to get a piece of lingerie off Simon, Percy decides that's the final straw and that Simon is out of the house.Of course, it's not the last straw because then there would be no movie. What follows is a mix of clichéd moments stolen from daytime soaps and a new bread of racial humor. We don't live in a perfect world and because of that, interracial couples turn heads. This film is a head that turns a full 360 to see the relationship from all sides with derogatory and benign humor toward white and blacks as a side note. Sometimes the film has you holding your side and there's still more coming.Guess Who might appear crude from the outside but it's a charmer once you get past the rocky beginning. There are moments that could have been done without and some social commentary that it is perhaps not in the position to make but then again, what is Hollywood without controversy? And this is not really controversial; it's just a good laugh at the movie theater without a whole lot of B.S. like most other comic offerings now a days. ***1/2 out of *****
