The movie seems to work better than the premise might suggest. The three leads - Goldberg, Danson and Nia Long, have a nice chemistry between them. Nia Long being particularly lovable as 'their' daughter. There are some good gags in it, although the movie is not overstuffed with them. The decent, heartwarming plot (just the right amount of twists) handles the race aspects with an exemplary ease.
Jennifer Tilly's bit-part was funnier and more successful than Will Smith's.
Made in America is hardly a classic but is worth watching if you like a little maturity in your comedy.
