REVIEWS

Review by Ask an expert (posted on 15-Apr-2009)

Wow! What a bunch of politically correct trash. The bridegroom is not just way cool, way rich (it isn't explained how or why), way smart (he even explains to the silly white folks how to load their dishwasher), and way noble. The white folks are mostly self-absorbed and repulsive. The Afro-Americans are uniformly pleasant, respectable, and good. The PC of it all has to be the explanation for why anything about this mish-mash would be Oscar-nominated. Don't bother. See if there's a Three Stooges or even an Adam West/Batman movie available. Either one's more realistic.
