In 1967, the answer was an unqualified yes, and in 2005, the answer is still, an only slightly less qualified, yes.

There is no comedy without conflict, and conflict only plays funny when it's a fair fight. The writers and director didn't do Mac any favors in letting him play a guy who doesn't recognize his own blind spots, and comically wrestle with them.

...closer to Meet the Parents than its nominal precursor, but we might take that as a sign of social progress

It offers a few solid laughs and will provoke some smiles, but there's too much of a tendency to go for obvious, largely unfunny humor when something more subtle would have satisfied.

Update on Poitier classic isn't as memorable.

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

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.

There's some flavor, but it tastes more like cola-scented water than actual Coke.

Closer in spirit to Meet the Parents than Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, this comedy further confirms - for those who care - that Ashton Kutcher is no Ben Stiller.

A creative misstep that will likely pay off commercially.

Guess Who doesn't play the race card nearly enough

Forgoes its predecessor's moralizing in favor of Meet the Parents-style conflict.

Mac and Kutcher are the saving graces of what is otherwise a poorly written, misguided rehash of a movie.

Can a film feature Ashton Kutcher parading around in women's lingerie and a teary-eyed Zoe Saldana recalling her interracial dating struggles and still be taken seriously?

Here's a comedy premised on racial unease, and it's too timid to uncork actual racial humor.

This feeble comedy ranks about an 11 on the yawn-o-meter.

[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

A rule: any time you see the movie's stars racing in go-karts, it's because the script ran out of funny things to do.
