This rebooted Guess Who's Coming to Dinner is a racist rom-com for a supposedly post-racial society. The premise sounds promising enough: A Latino family and an African-American family must get acquainted and overcome their cultural differences as their respective children Lucia (America Ferrera) and Marcus (Lance Gross) announce their plans to wed. But, a film that features a goat on Viagra? That has not one but two wedding-cake food fights? A film where a vase, if described as valuable, must be broken? Director Rick Famuyiwa hasn't a clue how to shoot even a simple conversation and when in doubt, he reverts to dumbass slapstick that makes Abbott and Costello's shtick look like Oscar Wilde. Plus, talk about fantasy! Only in the movies can one pull off an elaborate wedding in three weeks.

Our Family Wedding is a Hollywood wedding disaster film

Nobody falls for the "wedding that heals society" plot harder than I, but once uttered, some bad words cannot be taken back. »
