It's so sincere and admirable that it seems churlish to voice objections, but the fact remains that it isn't very good.
"Same Kind of Different as Me" is a strange, sincere and sometimes clumsy plea for old-fashioned Christian empathy.
A film with a lovely, life-affirming, uplifting message - unfortunately delivered in such a heavy-handed, gooey-sweet manner that audiences will exit the theater in a near-diabetic coma.
The very horrible complexities of racism and intolerance are simplified in ways inherent to many a Hollywood and faith-based film, all in the aim of glib uplift that may salve the individual spirit but solves absolutely nothing.
A blandly good looking, no frills, reasonably competent and occasionally emotional Message Movie, one whose message favors a color-blind approach to race relations, one designed to work entirely in favor of the desires of white people.
It can be hard to disagree with the heart and events of this true tale, except for when the movie reveals itself to be mighty self-congratulatory.
Bland. Greg Kinnear bland.
Same Kind of Different As Me is different than most of the movies at the box office right now, and worth seeing if you're looking for something to make you feel good about humanity in this utterly insane era.
Very apparent how much a little kindness and stepping out of our own shoes might make a big difference to someone's life.
Same Kind of Different as Me is only worth a watch if you have no other movie to watch and you're left to decide whether to watch more or wait until more movies come out. Otherwise so, every miss of suspense makes its huge lack of fun drama here.
