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.

...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.

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.

The film does pop off some huge belly laughs before the formula gets the better of it.

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

Well, guess what? "Guess Who" isn't a least, not of "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner." It's more like "Meet the Fockers" with themes about bigotry and honesty.

The film is content to poke gentle fun, not try to blaze any trails, unlike its much more illustrious predecessor.

I don't think Guess Who is a very good movie about its subject...but it works pretty well as a piece of light entertainment.

Guess Who owes more to Meet the Parents than it does Guess Who's Coming to Dinner.

It breaks no ground, but at least it doesn't bury itself beneath so much proselytizing and posing.
