Movie Info

When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on "The Green Book" to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger-as well as unexpected humanity and humor-they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.

Critic Reviews for Green Book

All Critics (84) | Top Critics (22)

Witty and warm as cashmere, Green Book is a two-hander in which both stars soar with humor and heart.

Tony and "Doc" don't just learn from each other; this is heroic two-hander in which they both save each other too.

Thanks in large part to the winning chemistry between Ali and Mortensen, and a pretty darn inspirational true-life story as its foundation, this was one of the best times I've had at the movies this year.

November 16, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Intentionally or not, it flatters the delusion that racism, in its ugliest form, is more of a past-tense problem.

Top Critic

A fine setup for two strong-willed characters to have at each other... Yet Green Book wears thin, and how could it not, since it's basically an illustrative construction in which each scene has a predictable shape and a clear-cut purpose.

This film cuts right through your defenses. That's because the performances by the two actors, especially Mortensen, are so hugely entertaining.
