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.

Bold, witty and hilarious. A slice of comedy heaven. You'll laugh until it hurts.

Broad as the brute force presentation of hot button racial issues are, the players are fully up to attacking it for all they're worth.

The real fun here comes from Stacy Keach as a warden who tries (and fails) to instill a mania for potato farming on his highly skeptical prisoners.

The modest offbeat comedy gently spoofs racism.

Cellmates is an indie film that shouldn't work. And at times it doesn't, but at other times it has an offbeat integrity that engages.

June 5, 2012
Plodding, unfunny prison comedy in which a white racist shares a cell with a naive young Mexican. Still, it's nice to see Tom Sizemore working.

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.

A near complete exercise in mirthlessness and atonal satire, "Cellmates" is a sentence, all right.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Sizemore certainly does his best to elevate the material, but every time the movie threatens to kick into gear, something generic or even sitcom-ish in its degree of cliche derails it.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5.0

It's all grimly, predictably plotted without ever once being interesting.
May 27, 2012
The film offers Tom Sizemore the perfect opportunity to prove himself worthy of a comeback. Alas, he fails spectacularly.
