Editorial Reviews

When Theresa (Zoe Saldana) brings fiance Simon Green (Ashton Kutcher) home for her parents' 25th wedding anniversary, she's neglected to mention one tiny detail - he's white. Determined to break his daughter's engagement, Percy Jones (Bernie Mac) does everything he can to make Simon feel "apart" of the family, from running his credit report to locking him in the basement at night. But when Percy gleefully exposes Simon's most embarrassing secret, it leads to an outrageous series of comic complications that only goes to prove that with a dad like Percy Jones, father doesn't always know best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent family entertainment! February 15, 2006
Format:DVD
I haven't seen a movie like this for years. It is full of comedy and you will keep laughing if you have a good sense of humor with open mind. The reason that many people here have given negative points is because it deals with the subject which makes many people uncomfortable, but as I said that if you watch this movie with open mind, you will definitely love it. The story is about a black girl (Zoe Saldana) who is in love with a white boy (Ashton Kutcher) and wants to announce their engagement on her parent's 25th marriage anniversary. Her dad (Bernie Mac) won't approve the white guy, not because he is a racist, but also uncomfortable about his daughter's relation with him. The movie is all fun, can be watched with family and as said before will keep everyone laughing.

Bernie Mac's character as Percy Jones is awesome, and he the one character you will keep watching the movie for. Ashton Kutcher, is all right and improvement in his acting is evident. Other actors are ok. Overall, this movie should not be missed, and please...don't take the jokes in the movie seriously.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bernie Mac should be a BIG star May 19, 2006
Format:DVD
I did NOT have high hopes for this, when it was marketed as an Ashton Kutcher comedy based on a switcheroo on the "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" premise. Girlfriend Theresa and Simon (Kutcher's part) return to her home for her parents' 25th wedding anniversary, but she has neglected to tell her parents he is white. It just wasn't clear to me that when an upscale black girl brings home a goofy white guy hilarity would automatically ensue.

The fellow who lifts this above its premise is Bernie Mac, playing Percy Jones, the father of girlfriend Theresa. The part is a parody of a parody - Dad makes Ashton sleep on the sofabed to keep him out of Daughter's bed, Dad gets into slapstick competition with Ashton because he doesn't think the dude is good enough for his daughter, etc. But Mac is not only a gifted verbal comic, he is a world-class physical comedian. At the same time he endows this silly part with a real dignity - you can really believe this is a guy who holds his family together, who loves his wife as much as he did 25 years ago.

I don't need to see another parody of a Spencer Tracy movie (I can't imagine anyone who would actually), but I'd love to see more of Bernie Mac.

4.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Comedy in the Backdrop of Racial Issues... August 3, 2005
Format:DVD
Almost forty years after the Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (1967) a remake is appropriate with the same racial theme, but this time the situation is reversed. It is time for the Caucasian, Simon Green (Ashton Kutcher), to visit his future African-American family-in-law for the first time. Much has changed since 1967 when Sidney Poitier visited Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn, yet some of the racial tensions still linger within the society. Kevin Rodney Sullivan, who some recognize from How Stella Got Her Groove Back (1998), decides to bring comic relief into these racial tensions.

The stress of visiting ones future father-in-law can be overwhelming. On top of this stress, Simon quits his prestigious job at the investment firm JP Oliver, an obvious allusion towards JP Morgan. In addition, Simon does not inform his fiancée Theresa Jones (Zoe Saldana) about his recent unemployment while they plan on telling her parents about their engagement at the parents 25th Wedding Anniversary. Simon manages the situation very well, a sign that he has a very high stress level. However, his stress level is about to be tested when he is about to meet Theresa's overly protective father, Percy Jones (Bernie Mac), for the first time.

Meanwhile, Percy checks out Simon's credit history, as he is a bank loan officer, and this impresses him. Percy is also excited about Simon working at JP Oliver, but does not know that he has quit. Bernie Mac, who often comes across a grand character, does a good job here down-playing his strong persona. This helps the film deliver a better cinematic experience, as the focus is on all the members of the family.

The first encounter between Simon and Percy is a scene with mixed identities, which will certainly bring the audience to laughter.

3.0 out of 5 stars Guess who? June 2, 2006
By Lyuba
Format:DVD
I went to see this movie with my boyfriend on a Friday night, and it was good. I though it was a good date movie. It's funny, not long, but it's definitely predictable. Though there might have been some racist jokes or comments, it was pretty funny. It seemed like it could happen in a real life, and I think many face that problem.It's good to address those kind of problems in funny movies.
