Guess Who is not a good movie at all. Yes, it may have some good actors in the movie but the movie still fails. This movie tries to go for a racial feature. However, it does bring race, but just bad qualities of it. I would not suggest this movie.
Guess Who truly has its moments but not nearly enough of them to equalize the pressure induced by Percy and his inadvertently uncomfortable and poorly justified dialogue which mostly contains such blatant racism that its target audience (which isn't all that clear) may actually find it offensive. Furthermore, Mac and Kutcher share a painfully scarce amount of chemistry.
A few chuckles and one laugh out loud moment (the muscle) but Guess Who just never became the comedy it set about trying to be and at times the viewer feels almost as uncomfortable as Kutcher telling his racist jokes at the table.
This movie was good, although nothing new as far as story line. Bernie Mac was funny as the dad who does not care for his daughter bringing home a white fiancee (Kutcher). Kutcher's character spends most of his time trying to be accepted by his soon to be father-in-law. It's a cute movie and worth renting.
