An average movie

Sometimes, I really wonder myself what kind of crap I watch... Basically, the main reason why I watched this movie is because I have a weak spot for Shannyn Sossamon. Eventually, she was in this movie only for one scene, maybe for only 10 minutes. Thankfully, Forest Withaker, one of the most underrated actors, had a major part so the whole thing was not a complete waste of time. Still, what a borefest... Basically, it is some kind of variation on 'Guess who's coming to dinner' but, this time, you have a clash between the African-American culture and the Mexican culture. I mean, not only it wasn't really funny but very often, it was just plain rude, rather depressing and borderline offensive. It is rather sad to see that our prejudices haven't changed much in the last 45 years since 'Guess who's coming to dinner' has been released. To be honest, there were some scenes that did work and some of the actors tried really hard to do something with their poorly written characters but the whole thing was just really misguided. To conclude, it is a very weak romantic-comedy and it is not really worth a look, even if you like the genre.
