Sem saber se pretende ser uma comédia, um drama ou uma denúncia sobre preconceito racial, este medíocre filme salva-se apenas pela curiosidade de ter servido como veículo de estréia para Denzel Washington.

Audience Reviews for Carbon Copy

Older movie but a very young Denzel Washington's first role. Interesting this was made in 1981 and the storyline could be a modern movie. I liked George Segal in this one and Jack Warden is pretty good too. This movie has some funny parts and although dated is not too bad.
