SOME IN-LAWS WERE MADE TO BE BROKEN.
Theresa Jones (Zoë Saldaña) brings boyfriend Simon Green (Ashton Kutcher) to meet the folks… but she hasn’t told them that he’s white… and he hasn’t told her that he just lost his job. A comedy that borrows the structure from Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner (1967), but reverses the racial tension. Definitely a pleasant experience, the film is nevertheless not as interesting and controversial as the original, and not very funny either. Kutcher is outshone in every sequence by Bernie Mac, and the supporting cast is quite charming.
2005-U.S. 105 min. Color. Directed by Kevin Rodney Sullivan. Cast: Bernie Mac (Percy Jones), Ashton Kutcher (Simon Green), Zoë Saldaña (Theresa Jones), Judith Scott, Hal Williams, Kellee Stewart.
