Solid drama dealing with an interracial relationship. The race card is played in a predicable manner for 60's cinema. It treads the issue lightly with some great dialogue that clearly defines the multiple viewpoints on the situation, but the outcome is one of typical hollywood fashion. I can't really blame the film for the time in which it was made. There's still a level of sophistication and understanding that comes through in the terrific performances. I just wish the material wasn't handled so 'safely'.

A rather rose tinted drama tackling race issues when a young white liberal brings home her black fiancee to meet her parents. It's intelligently and thoughtfully written, and the pairing of Tracy and Hepburn is forever watchable, but some may find Poitier's eminent doctor and all-round over achiever a little too good to be true. A fine film nonetheless.

Occasionally the film chooses to err on the lighter side of the racial conflict it is addressing, but, when it digs deep into meaty thematic conflict, it hits home. Tracy and Hepburn turn in another pair of commanding performances, as does Sidney Poitier.

The conflict is a tad oversimplified, but these characters are so perfectly embodied by the actors that this movie wins you over and you believe that of course love will be enough.

I thought this movie was going to be a drag but I was pleasantly surprised. Although much didn't happen in terms of action and drama, I think it was the pure emotion of all of the characters that kept this movie going. Watching racially based movie made in the 60s is a lot different than one that was made now. Back then discrimination was so public and real, and the actors were truly living in their roles. It was just interesting to watch how that all played out. Also, all of the actors did such incredible jobs individually. I was highly impressed by all of them. And I just have to comment on Katharine Houghton's transatlantic accent...brilliant. This was a really good movie.

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner

Very good performances. I want Sidney Poitier to win arguments for me.The only character who wasn't believable in this movie was the daughter, Joanna- she was just so oblivious to the entire situation. A person can be optimistic and open minded without being completely blind to what's going on around her. She didn't even have much of a personality- she was just annoyingly cheerful and her only real trait was that she was a white girl marrying a black man. However, that's one of the only serious flaws I can find here. Well, that and the fact that the final scene was kind of drawn out too much, with the dad retelling the entire first half hour and so on. I liked how the end wasn't exactly perfect though- like, just because her dad made a speech, not everything sorted itself out right then a...
