Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Mac and Kutcher have proved themselves better comics than actors, but both give charming, subtle performances here."
‑ Bruce Newman, San Jose Mercury News
"The timing of nearly every gag is just half a beat off, and that half-beat is a killer."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek,
"Update on Poitier classic isn't as memorable."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"full review in Greek"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"the movie is little more than an interracial riff on Meet the Parents, but it's consistently funny, and it's enough of a riff to make it feel fresh."
‑ Austin O'Connor, Lowell Sun
"The film is predictable and its humor is tension free."
‑ Peter L'Official, Village Voice
"Let's just say that, on the charge of comedic intentions, the cinematic jury is still out."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Here's a comedy premised on racial unease, and it's too timid to uncork actual racial humor."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"A rule: any time you see the movie's stars racing in go-karts, it's because the script ran out of funny things to do."
‑ David Cornelius,
"Kutcher does a good job of reigning in his likeable idiot persona from That 70s Show and Dude, Where's My Car? to the point where you almost - but not quite - buy him as a high-flying stockbroker type."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"I say sometimes that scripts get rewritten too much. I don't know if this one got rewritten too much or not enough, but I wish they had given it another go and tried to strike a more consistent tone."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Might provide a much-needed fix for Mac's most ardent fans, but they'll have to wait for a star vehicle that fully exploits the range of his comic gifts."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"A bland rom-com that seems afraid of its own subject matter."
‑ Ethan Alter, Film Journal International
"In the first place, the film doesn't aim high enough. In the second place, it falls short of that unambitious goal."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"The laughs are few and far between."
‑ Stella Papamichael,
