It's good. It's not life changing or close to the best of anything, but it's funny and charming. Both Viggo and Mahershala are terrific and deserve acclaim, but the film itself is nothing special if not at least entertaining. It'll probably age better than Driving Miss Daisy, though, even with some of the issues it has presenting racism in a palatable way to an (assumedly) mostly white audience.

Generic as hell. In a year in which we got the far better and more interesting BlacKkKlansman this feels really dated. Hopefully the awards circuit won't do the same thing it did to Spike in 1989.

Edit: They fucking did it.

I don't know which part is worse, the white guy teaching the black guy how to act "blacker" or the latter teaching the white guy how to feel good about his racism because he has a black friend.

If Green Book looks like a reverse Driving Miss Daisy, it's really more of an Odd Couple road trip movie tracking the birth of a real-life friendship. Mahershala Ali is an uptight, cultured piano virtuoso; Viggo Mortensen puts on his best Denis Leary impression as the ignorant slob paid to be his driver and bodyguard while touring in the Deep South in the '60s. There's a lot of comedy in their interactions, but of course, the trip - somewhat referenced as Orpheus' descent into Hell in the film, though it's hardly allegorical - has plenty of opportunities for drama. It seems ridiculous to me that we still need movies about racism that are this obvious (racist man gets to know black man and changes his ways - you don't need to be "woke" to learn something you don't know), but here we are. Excellent performances, good music, back doored feel-good Christmas vibes... but it doesn't go the extra mile and treat its subject matter in a novel way.

Green Book is like that episode of Fresh Prince where Will and Carlton get arrested on the road by a racist cop, only Will's a white guy from the Bronx.

Nothing really special, but endearing and fun, with two impeccable lead performances.

A bigoted white man teaches a black man how to be black = cringey and predictable.

Good acting, always interesting to see just how backwards America was, and is really.

The nice cop scene felt forced.

Decent movie but not 10/10 as critics are calling it.

I loved this movie!!! It's a movie with heart and soul...flawless in every way. The relationship between the two lead characters is wonderful and touching, and the actors did an amazing job in conveying that. Overall it was a joy to watch.

I have to say, one of the things I loved most about this film was the editing. Phenomenally comical, I laughed so much more than I'd anticipated. If you don't take it too seriously, you're bound to have a good time.

This is not a movie this is time travel to history. I enjoyed every moment of it.
Great work Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali and all the gang.
Tip: although Christmas take part some minutes only it’s in my top list of Christmas recommendations for sure.
