'Guess Who'
(Bernie Mac, Ashton Kutcher, et al / PG-13 / 82 mins / Sony Pictures)

Overview: A remake of the racially charged 1967 original about a white woman who brings home her black fiancÚ (Sidney Poitier) to meet her parents (Katherine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy), this update reverses the ethnicities. Bernie Mac plays a father whose daughter dates a white man.

Verdict: Ashton Kutcher is slowly and surely punking America! On marginal talent and lots of luck, Kutcher is reaching the top on a mile-high pile of US Weekly cover photos! Bernie Mac has a natural delivery and can work a punchline like nobody's business. Kutcher, however, is a much different working beast. But, taken on its own, separate from its original source material, 'Guess Who' is an enjoyable film, boosted by Mac's down-home humor. And, I guess, that as tempting as it is to think that everything has changed since the days of 'Guess Who's Coming To Dinner', 'Guess Who' is honest enough to admit that there are major issues yet to be resolved. Heavy social issues in a comedy ... what's next?!
