Billy Dee Williams,
A vacationing woman meets her ideal man, leading to a swift marriage. Back at home, however, their idyllic life is upset when they discover their neighbors could be assassins who have been contracted to kill the couple.
A Catholic priest (Padre Geronimo) goes to a small town to solve some strange things that are happening in that town, things that come from the unknown, and gets involved in a romantic relationship with a young woman of the village.
Percy and Marilyn are renewing their vows for their anniversary, and their daughter Theresa brings her boyfriend Simon for them to meet. Unbeknownst to her parents, the kids plan to announce their engagement during the weekend. The Jones family is Black; Theresa neglects to tell them Simon is White. Race complicates Percy's general mistrust of any boyfriend, so he instigates an investigation of Simon, discovering he's recently lost his job and hasn't told Theresa. Mistrust rears its ugly head, and in the process of Theresa and Simon's argument, Marilyn and Percy fall out. What can the men do to cross the divide between each other and between men and women? Will anyone be exchanging vows? Written by
Ashton Kutcher suggested that his character be Jewish, to add another dimension to his conflict with the Christian Percy Jones. The idea was scrapped because the filmmakers wanted to focus on the issue of interracial romance rather than also looking into the interfaith issue. See more »

Are you getting cold feet, Simon?
No. No, I'm not getting cold feet. I can't wait to marry you... and make babies with you. Give me a daughter who looks just like you.

I'm gonna put it like this, for those who haven't seen Guess Who's Coming To Dinner, plain and simple...WATCH THAT MOVIE FIRST AND LEAVE IT AT THAT!!!!!! The actors in Guess Who's Coming To Dinner acted brilliantly, it's a CLASSIC film. Not only was it HILARIOUS, it was very touching and real as well. Sadly, 38 years later, they had the nerve to remake a classic comedy like Guess Who's Coming To Dinner and reverse racial roles. Guess Who. was far from hilarious. First off if you saw the original, you never saw Sidney Poitier in the same bed as Spencer Tracy, nor in the same bedroom for that matter. Guess Who was the opposite. In the original, all the parents met. In Guess Who, Ashton only mentions what his mom and grandma said about his future fiancée. Sidney never ever argued with his fiancée and then had the nerve to be desperate and sing horribly to get her back (not to mention make 35 cell phone calls). The most distasteful thing about Guess Who was the fact that they had to make a bunch of racial jokes with the black actors laughing. There was only one instance in Guess Who when Isabel Sanford called Sidney Poitier the N-word, but that was once. The fact is Guess Who was the WORST movie Bernie Mac ever starred it and it's a poor excuse for a remake. Guess Who's Coming To Dinner was a classic, pure, hilarious comedy without all the filth and sex-related humor, Guess Who was the opposite, PLAIN AND SIMPLE and that's it, ENOUGH SAID!!!
