Good Movie
5 August 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Mixed Company is a good film which looks at the topic of adopting children.

It features a fine cast, including Joe Bologna and Barbar Harris.

It also raised a little controversy when it came out due to a scene where Joe Bologna spanks a young black boy, Haywood Nelson, on his bare bottom.

Not available on video to my knowledge.
