Comedy - Unlike the '60s film upon which it is based, this is not a preachy drama but comedy that tweaks racial issues, driven by the comic skills of stars Bernie Mac and Ashton Kutcher.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Guess Who is a palatable film. 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. It's a fairly typical, unremarkable comedy that is worth seeing primarily for the performances of Mac and Saldana.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good The movie focuses on the two men, to such a degree that the story synopsis on the movie's Web site literally never even mentions any of the women characters -- not Theresa, not her mother Marilyn, not her feisty sister Keisha (Kellee Stewart).

USA Today Full Review
Below Average Guess Who is just a succession of tired race jokes made worse by the bad comedic timing of the bland, under-talented Ashton Kutcher. Perhaps a more accurate title would have been Dude, Meet the Black Parents.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 150 moviegoer opinions. GREAT OPINIONS! GREAT COMEDY! How some critics can say this is a below average movie is beyond me. It's quite obvious from these outstanding moviegoer opinions that "Guess Who?" is a movie you don't want to miss. Opinions just don't get much better than this. Virtually everyone rated it "Very Good" or higher with a very high percentage of "Fantastic" and "Excellent" opinions. And equally important is the lack of low opinions. Go see "Guess Who?"

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Percy Jones (BERNIE MAC) takes great pride in the knowledge that he is always right, especially when it comes to the welfare of his family. When his daughter Theresa (ZOË SALDAÑA) brings her new boyfriend, Simon Green (ASHTON KUTCHER), home to meet Percy and his wife Marilyn (JUDITH SCOTT), he is unaware that Simon has already proposed to Theresa and plans to announce the engagement at Percy and Marilyn's 25th anniversary party.

As far as Percy's concerned, no man will ever be good enough for his baby girl and the long line of struggling-artist types Theresa has dated so far has only served to bolster his conviction. So that there are no unpleasant surprises this time around, Percy, a bank loan officer, runs a credit check on Simon. The young man, a successful young stockbroker, certainly looks good on paper, and for the first time, Percy is actually looking forward to meeting one of his daughter's boyfriends.

However, the young man he has envisioned — a dazzling combination of Denzel Washington, Colin Powell and Tiger Woods — is not who arrives at his doorstep. Percy 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 favorite sports. Feeling pressured to impress his prospective father-in-law, Simon boasts of his (nonexistent) past as a NASCAR driver, which only serves to arouse Percy's suspicions. Regardless, Simon's repeated attempts to make a good impression are futile. Percy rebuffs him at every turn — with hilarious results — and makes it his mission to expose Simon as a fraud and undermine his daughter's new relationship.
