Although the movie strives mightily to teach its lesson, which is that you cannot judge a man by the color of his skin, the humor is undermined by the sadness of the basic situation.

If nothing else, at least the movie offers laughs without being offensive.

A one-joke sketch that doesn't work as a feature.

Cage is the only actor allowed to do riffs on his assigned part, something he takes full advantage of; the others are stuck with their two-dimensional satirical profiles, which grow increasingly tiresome and unyielding.

Cage is a font of funny character weirdness. This movie marks the least of his offerings. Jackson, as the relative straight man, has little to work with.

Amos & Andrew is a better-than-average comedy that's likable enough while unfolding but evaporative when over.

The title sounds like a bad joke - Amos & Andrew. Unfortunately, the movie is just as bad.

A hhandicapped satirical farce whose roots are not in life but in other, better movies and sitcoms.

Comedies about racism risk trivializing the issue on the one hand or becoming preachy and dull on the other. Amos & Andrew manages to do both.
