Let's just start by addressing the elephant in the room. The two main characters are portrayed in BlackFace. Most likely for no good reason other then the old idea that poorly educated African Americans are funner than their white counterparts. I feel these characters language quirks could easily just be contributed to their orgins of poor folks from Georgia and not really the color of their skin.

The main characters were not portrayed as evil or bad, infact they were some of the most admirable characters in the whole film. I did not care for the secondary love triangle plot and preferred the slapstick parts featuring Amos and Andy. An interesting watch that I don't regret.
