About the Movie
Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn (who won the Academy Award(r) for Best Actress for her performance) are unforgettable as perplexed parents in this landmark 1967 movie about mixed marriage. Joanna (Katharine Houghton), the beautiful daughter of crusading publisher Matthew Drayton (Tracy) and his patrician wife Christina (Hepburn), returns home with her new fiance John Prentice (Sidney Poitier), a distinguished black doctor. Christina accepts her daughter's decision to marry John, but Matthew is shocked by this interracial union; the doctor's parents are equally dismayed. Both families must sit down face to face and examine each other's level of intolerance. In GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER,director Stanley Kramer has created a masterful study of society's prejudices.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A most delightfully acted and gracefully entertaining film.
Fresh: Examines its subject matter with perception, depth, insight, humor and feeling
Fresh: It would be easy to tear the plot to shreds and catch Kramer in the act of copping out. But why? On its own terms, this film is a joy to see, an evening of superb entertainment.
Rotten: A disaster on all counts -- its time, if it ever had one, has definitely passed.
Best movie ever

Very great movie !!!!!!!
One of the best movies of all time. I find myself reciting some of the lines to my parents.." You and your generation think the way it was,is the way it has to be." This movie is timeless and can teach us all a lot about ourselves.
