its treatment of race resides comfortably at the sitcom level, where it's safe to laugh about difference and then console ourselves with eventual inclusiveness

Had Mac and Kutcher not had such great chemistry together, this wouldn't have worked...

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

Besides, in our watered-down age of looking at complex social issues on a purely surface level, a studio willing to put out a feature with the required teeth to make it even remotely worthwhile is beyond minute.

Well, guess what? "Guess Who" isn't a remake...at 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.

The absolute lack of cultural identity on the part of any of the characters -- black or white -- is what left me with a bad aftertaste.

The filmmakers seem to have forgotten that even today, the most memorable battles have two fronts. And they usually don't involve a man wearing a woman's underwear.

There are some weak stabs at deriving humor from the white guy trying to fit into the black family... More often, [it's] of the "suspicious dad/nervous boyfriend" variety.

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.

I say sometimes that scripts get rewritten too much. I don't know if this one got rewritten too much or not enough, but I wish they had given it another go and tried to strike a more consistent tone.

[The] interracial intimacy is so lightweight, dismissive, and flat that this toothless comedy loses its edginess...turns into another arbitrary salt-and-pepper buddy romp

Light and fluffy, Guess Who is a mildly entertaining movie that could have been more had its makers been a little braver.
