Some in-laws were meant to be broken.

The Plot
A sarcastic father has plenty to say about his daughter wanting to marry a white boy.

Film Washing
Contemporary setting + romantic comedy = brands, brands and more brands (just look at this year’s previous Number One, Hitch). Of the many brand appearances in Guess Who, there were a few standouts. Mentioned by name (very favorably too) was Tumi luggage. Also, this being a Sony Studios production, Sony electronics are very well represented (ditto Hitch), especially Sony Ericsson phones. Maybe best represented was NASCAR, which given the theme of Guess Who (breaking stereotypes) was well cast against its assumptions as a sport primarily for Caucasians.

Brands that wash your brain: Belvedere, Bloomberg, Cadillac, Castrol, Coca-Cola, Denver Broncos, Doritos, DuPont, Ericsson, FDIC, Ford, Honda, Howard University, Jet, Jiffy Lube, Kodak, Lexus, Lumber Liquidators, Macy’s, NASCAR, New Jersey Nets, New Jersey Transit, New York Giants, New York Knicks, New York Stock Exchange, New York Yankees, Nextel, NFL, Nikon, Oakley, Pirelli, Raisin Bran, Ruffles, Saks Fifth Ave., Shriners, Sony, Spalding, Starbucks, Tumi, UPS
