Comedy starring Bernie Mac and Ashton Kutcher. When his daughter Theresa (Zoe Saldana) brings her new boyfriend Simon Green (Kutcher) home to meet the parents, Percy (Mac) and his wife Marilyn (Judith Scott) are unaware that Simon has already proposed to Theresa and plans to announce the engagement at Percy and Marilyn's 25th anniversary party. Although protective of his daughter, Percy is looking forward to the meeting, but is aghast and more than a little indignant when his daughter presents her decidedly Caucasian boyfriend. Once he is over his initial shock, Percy begins interrogating Simon about his family history, education, career and favourite sports. Feeling pressurised to impress his father-in-law, Simon boasts of his (non-existent) past as a NASCAR driver, which only serves to arouse Percy's suspicions. Regardless, Simon's attempts to make a good impression are futile. Percy rebuffs him at every turn and makes it his mission to expose Simon as a fraud and undermine his daughter's new relationship.
Taken on its own terms as a big-screen sitcom, Guess Who offers plenty of humor with just enough social commentary to make its point without being preachy. Of course, we've come along way since interracial romance was such a hot-button issue in Stanley Kramer's earnest 1967 drama Guess Who's Coming To Dinner, and nobody's going to mistake Ashton Kutcher and Bernie Mac (in this updated semi-remake) with the original film's Sidney Poitier and Spencer Tracy. And that's fine, because Guess Who--from the director of Barbershop 2--doesn't pretend to be anything more than a slick, entertaining vehicle for domestic farce with the racial roles reversed. Kutcher's romance with an African-American beauty (Zoë Sandaña) causes sparks to fly when he's introduced to her father (Bernie Mac). What ensues is basically an interracial buddy comedy that's as uninspired as it is easy to watch, and there's a dinner-table scene that's refreshingly provocative in this movie's otherwise tamely cautious context. We can all be thankful that humanity has matured a little since the racial tensions of the late '60s, but Hollywood's progress (and Kutcher's career) remains subject to debate. --Jeff Shannon

It's a movie that's entertaining and refreshing to watch. I wouldn't buy it and it's not unmissable, but it's worth watching. I'm still waiting to finally see a Hollywood movie where an interracial relationship is seen as normal, but this movie makes me think we're getting close...
The story of an interracial romance set in the modern day with such likeable characters. Really brighten my day I agree with some of the other reviewers that its not laugh out loud funny and not in the same league as Meet the Parents (thank goodness) but it is in my mind an enjoyable romcom.
Bernie Mac does a star turn of as a man faced with his oldest daughter bringing home her latest beau who happens to be white and who it becomes more and more obvious is not quite telling the truth.
I loved not only the romance but also the burgeoning relationship between Percy and Simon its going to take sometime before he is completely comfortable with his white son in law but he is trying.
In my mind this is a good comedy which very enjoyable and I will be getting the dvd.
The premise is very simple. Percy Jones (Bernie Mac) is quite horrified when his daughter Theresa (Zoe Saldana) brings home her new boyfriend for her parents' twenty-fifth anniversary celebration. Percy had checked up on our boy Simon Green (Kutcher) and was quite encouraged by his credit report and the fact that he worked for a prestigious investment firm (at least, he did work for a prestigious investment firm - but he quit just before making the trip to meet his prospective in-laws, a fact that no one, including Theresa, knows about yet). Simon isn't what he was expecting at all, though - not by a long shot. It has a lot to do with the fact that Simon is white, but let's face it - every father's worst nightmare is the thought of his baby girl bringing Ashton Kutcher home with her. It's not even completely about race; the boy is just not right in the head, and Percy thinks he's hiding something (which he is). This father takes extraordinary steps to make sure Simon and his little girl don't get up to any hanky-panky there in his house - and who can blame him for that? As the days pass, things don't get any better, much comic hilarity ensues (capped off with a round of ethnic jokes told around the dinner table), and there's a big row that temporarily splits up both couples. Wouldn't it be funny if, just once, a movie didn't go for the pat, obvious ending?Read more ›
the main plot for this movie is theresa (zoe saldana) brings her fiance simon green ( kutcher) to her parents house for there anniverarie, she forgets to mention 1 little detail...no, not about the wedding.... the fact that hes white. percy jones (bernie mac)(who is always called by his full name) does everything he can to make sim feel "apart" of the family. percy even pulls simon's credit rating which seems to look good, but he finds out that he quit his job. later in the film percy finally realises why he did this, the fact that someone at work didnt want him to marry the 'black' girl pushed him over the edge. ill leavethe end for you to figure out. you can probably guess what is going to happen.
i have read many reviews saying that kutcher is rubbish and that he can never replace Sidney Poitier in the original role ( guess who's coming to dinner.)i agree kind of, but there is not many people who could of played that role as good as he did, but i agree with others, Bernie mac does make the film what it is....a masterpiece.
all i can say is please watch it, you wont be sorry.
