When Walter and Roger check into a hotel the sign says "Free Ice and TV". Later in the room, Roger wants to watch TV and states that the TV requires payment of a quarter (25 cents) to watch it. This is most likely due to shady business tactics which can promise something but later retrieve that promise with diverse excuses. See more »

You've seen it all before..... but it still works .............
One part "Fire Sale" ( White family adopting Black child ), one part "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?" ( the culture clash surprise ), one part "Life Stinks" ( the reality of life on the streets ), and you pretty much have "Carbon Copy". The movie can stand on it's own however, because George Segal and Denzel Washington compliment each other nicely as mismatched Father and Son. There are a number of laugh out loud moments, and some social lessons too. If you go in not expecting too much in the way of logic, you will not be disappointed. I think George Segal is very underrated as a comedy actor. Just take a look at "Where's Poppa?" if you disagree. - MERK
