Guess Who's Coming To Dinner

Film
4 out of 5 stars
(2user reviews)
One can hardly complain about the performances when Tracy and Hepburn combine as the leads, but Kramer's well-meaning comedy-drama about racism - a liberal couple suffer a few doubts when their daughter brings home the black she intends to marry - is a leaden and stilted affair, wrecked by the cautious move of making the groom-to-be singularly good-looking, respectable (he's a doctor) and well-to-do. A wishy-washy, sanctimonious plea for tolerance, directed with Kramer's customary verbosity and stodginess.
