Critic Reviews for Carbon Copy

All Critics (1)

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

For being washington's first film it's not horrible, he's just not believable as a seventeen year old.

It's so strange to see Denzel Washington in a movie like this, same goes with George Segal. I wonder if Washing knew at the time that his future would be bright, very bright. Seeing the film the fourth time, this time from beginning to end. I understood the film a lot more andlaugheda lot more. On a note, this reminds me of a skit from Family Guy called "My Black Son".

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.
