Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Movie Info

Worlds collide when hardened Ku Klux Klansman Leroy Lowe (Tom Sizemore) and Mexican field laborer Emilio (Hector Jimenez) are forced to share a prison cell. The unlikely relationship takes an unexpected turn when the chatty Emilio slowly chips away at Leroy's gruff exterior in writer/director Jesse Baget's offbeat buddy comedy which also stars Stacy Keach, Kevin Farley and Olga Segura. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Cellmates

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (3)

If you find the moral conversion of a militant lifelong bigot difficult to imagine, try the casting of the burly, fraying Mr. Sizemore as a romantic leading man.

Top Critic

A near complete exercise in mirthlessness and atonal satire, "Cellmates" is a sentence, all right.

Top Critic

It's all grimly, predictably plotted without ever once being interesting.

A lifer with little chance for appeal

Movie Habit

A slight but amiable prison-set satire, Cellmates surfs along mostly on the good fortune of its casting and sly peculiarity of its forced-odd-couple premise.
