When Theresa (Zoë Saldaña) brings fiancé Simon Green (Ashton Kutcher) home for her parents? 25th wedding anniversary, she's neglected to mention one tiny detail - he's white. Determined to break his daughter's engagement, Percy Jones (Bernie Mac) does everything he can to make Simon feel apart of the family, from running his credit report to locking him in the basement at night. But when Percy gleefully exposes Simon's most embarrassing secret, it leads to an outrageous series of comic complications that only goes to prove that with a dad like Percy Jones, father doesn't always know best.

Critics Consensus: Despite the chemistry of its stars, Guess Who, a loose remake of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, lacks the political relevance of the original.

Update on Poitier classic isn't as memorable.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has some sexual humor, including jokes about masturbation, cross-dressing, and gays. A character asks "What's the sex like?" and there is some discussion of what white men's sex organs look like. There is humor about racism, including a list of racist terms for white people. A great deal is made of the fact that Simon and Percy share a bed (as a way of making sure that Simon and Theresa don't sleep together) and end up cuddling.
