Race aside, is Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner a controversial movie?
Think about it.
- The couple only met like 10 days before getting engaged (seriously who does that - no wonder the parents don’t approve; they barely know each other)
- He’s like 10-15 years older than her; the parents could see this as paedophilia
Even though the main issue is race (bear in mind BOTH sets of parents are against the marriage for racial reasons) there are those reasons above to take into account, which arguably could still be used today.
Also an old man called Matt? To me it just sounds like a young person’s name like Ryan does. I know the full name is Matthew but Matt still sounds too young.
