Consensus: Despite the chemistry of its stars, Guess Who, a loose remake of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, lacks the political relevance of the original.

Mac and Kutcher have proved themselves better comics than actors, but both give charming, subtle performances here.

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.

A bland rom-com that seems afraid of its own subject matter.

Offensive, to some audiences, Guess Who is an unfunny modern view of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner.

Chris Weber
This is a loose remake of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner with a race reversal, but it seems to have far more in common with Meet the Parents (with a racial… More

Meet the Parents with an extra war of the races twist. It mostly relies on those comedic moments of pure painful embarrassment which are all handled very well… More

Very funny!
Candy Rose
Romcom about an interracial relationship between Ashton Kutcher and Zoë Sandaña, which causes tension when he meets her father Bernie Mac. Predictable but… More
