      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      More well-intentioned than insightful in its approach to interracial marriage, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner succeeds thanks to the fizzy chemistry of its star-studded ensemble.

      Kevin Maher Times (UK) An innately compelling experience. Rated: 5/5 Jan 14, 2022 Full Review Adam Nayman The Ringer Guess Who's Coming to Dinner toes the line between thoughtful, responsible social commentary and didactic messaging; their contents reflect a genuine national uncertainty... Apr 29, 2020 Full Review Brendan Gill New Yorker The movie insidiously charms us into ignoring its defects, and for this the credit must go to a superb cast. Mar 27, 2019 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy Initially breezy without ever sacrificing any of its points, the picture eventually resorts to a series of static speeches. Luckily, the actors carry the day, particularly Sidney Poitier, Cecil Kellaway and, taking MVP honors, Spencer Tracy. Rated: 3/4 Feb 15, 2023 Full Review Danielle Solzman Solzy at the Movies Stanley Kramer's Guess Who's Coming to Dinner features a masterclass in acting from Spencer Tracy, Sidney Poitier, and Katharine Hepburn. Jan 8, 2022 Full Review Nicholas Bell IONCINEMA.com Kramer's film does feel like a dusty time capsule. Still, as a film starring some of cinemas greatest actors, the combination of Hepburn, Poitier, and Tracy is still enough to hold the film's artifice at bay -- mostly. Rated: 3/5 Oct 21, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Ron A. Great social commentary on interracial marriage! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/22 Full Review Roy J The movie was progressive for it's time, but not as much today. But the acting is still enjoyable. Every actor received an Oscar nod for their performance...except for the legendary Poitier lol Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/18/22 Full Review David B I've seen this film several times and I am still deeply impressed for various reaons: the casting; the political timing; the script (although sometimes a bit predictable!). It's important to remember that this was such a controversial film in its day that several states in the US banned it from being shown. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/14/23 Full Review Eric E Well that was pretty good for a stage play. Spencer Tracy was awesome (first role I've ever seen him play) and Ingrid Bergman, but I didn't care for the female love interest. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 07/26/23 Full Review Leaburn O I have so many serious misgivings about this film but for 80% of the film, if I transported myself to the mad world where this kind of relationship represented a serious issue, then I could appreciate the screenplay. Made for the theatre really but kept gripping by some good all round acting. Now, there are serious issues when this is looked through modern day eyes but my biggest problem was the grandstanding by the father at the end of the film. It was meant to be a sentimental and emotional finale but it felt contrived and horrible self centred for the father to take the stand and turn this issue into him and to try and come across self righteous when in fact he was just a bigot throughout the film. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/06/23 Full Review Michael W This classic movie was really good. Sidney Poitier, Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn, Katharine Houghton, Isabel Sanford, Beah Richards, Roy Glenn, and the rest of the cast did a great job in this movie. The story of the movie was dramatic, heartfelt, and emotional. It's about fighting for love no matter what the circumstances are. If you haven't seen this classic movie yet, check it out sometime. It's a must see. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
