AS far as the company who sent the DVD - fast delivery and it arrived in great condition.
Now for the movie. I would give it a B-/C+. It was entertaining and funny, at times, but the plot lingered on for the last 30-45 minutes and I started getting bored with the same conversational themes. The plot was the typical relationship comedy - not bad as far as that goes. This movie is quite different from the the orginal movie with Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn, but it needed to be somewhat different in terms of blending in with the current social climate. The serious social conflicts encountered in non-traditional relationships was emphacized and a recurring theme presented with a comical twist. Most of the movie focused on the interaction between the bride's parents and the groom, but the movie did not include the groom's parents or their interactions with the brides parents, which was a pivotal element in the original movie.
If you are looking for a drama paralleling the original "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner," then you might be dissappointed, especially if you're a serious movie buff. However, If you just want a sweet, somwhat comical dysfunctional family and love story, then this movie is worth the money. It's not 1 of those movies that I will watch repeatedly, like I did with the orginal movie classic (which by the way was before my time). Maybe I'll bring it out again on a rainy day.

This film is so funny if your not careful you'll fall of the sofa. Bernie Mac is on his game in this movie and so is Ashton Kutcher. This is a must have for comedy lovers. If you loved the original don't expect this to be a modern remake (It is not).
