Update on Poitier classic isn't as memorable.

Here's a comedy premised on racial unease, and it's too timid to uncork actual racial humor.

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

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.

In the first place, the film doesn't aim high enough. In the second place, it falls short of that unambitious goal.

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.

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.

The laughs are few and far between.

'If there was any doubt that Bernie Mac is a movie star, "Guess Who" erases it.'

...never loses its focus on providing laughs. And it does that with a surprising consistency that demonstrates an ability to appeal, fittingly, to a wide and diverse audience.

Is it a compliment to say that "Guess Who" is better than "Booty Call?" More compelling than "Texas Rangers?" Superior to "B*A*P*S?" Guess not.

If Sullivan wasn't so reliant on plot gimmicks, Guess Who might have been a full-course meal instead of finger food.

While Guess Who gets some mileage out of its black and white issues, it's more focused on being the interracial romantic comedy answer to Meet the Parents.

Oh well, Bernie. There's always "Ocean's 13" to look forward to.

If you never even begin to compare this film to the classic that inspired it ... then it's a perfectly enjoyable bit of fluffy farce.

To say that the whole question of race in this movie is only skin- deep is an insult to the strength and elasticity of skin.

The film does pop off some huge belly laughs before the formula gets the better of it.
| Original Score: 3/4

There are moments when it seems Kutcher might look right into the camera and say, 'Ready to see me walk right into another impossibly stupid faux pas?'
