As I watched this movie I felt like I was watching a dozen similar films which were haphazardly put together for the sake of a few bucks. The film was not only a sorry remake of the classic film Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, but was entirely too similar to other films including Meet the Parents and dozens of other pop movies which cheaply recycle the old and tired formulas and plots featuring the introduction of a significant other to uneasy parents by an all too eager boy/girlfriend or fiancé. Guess Who was a sorry attempt by some Hollywood exec to fill seats in theaters and to sell copies of DVDs. Nothing more. I am tired of movie producers putting out the same tired and unoriginal films such as Guess Who. Where is the creativity and originality?
