Smart, funny, twisted satire

I give this movie an 8. It is funny, but can be uncomfortable at times. Its a movie I do not expect everybody to get. Like Spike Lee's do the right thing, It will make some feel uncomfortable and immediately go on the defense- which in turn makes them not appreciate the comedy the writing, the cast or the message.

This movie shows real people, real thoughts, real characters. It not glossed over , sugar coated characters ( nor extremist).

The movie offers different view points on what it is like to be a black person in this suppose to be "post racial" country that we live in.

I would give it a look, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie!

Boring and overdone

There are plenty of other black films out there that really entertain and sometimes make a point about race perceptions and relations. (see last paragraph)

The filmmakers scripted a real life situation, A racial Halloween Party in Texas...how boring can you get. Whites in black face... zzzzz..huh, oh I fell asleep. Why make a movie about one incidence of jerky white guys.

Then the movie turns into a black Dinner with White People where people chat on and on.

If you are into b/w dialogue just listen to the audio. Nothing to see here except a few very hot sorority girls. The filmmakers must have said, 'let's bring in comments on 'the weave'. Sorry Chris Rock did an entire documentary and it was great.

Was Dear White People a class project? What was the point. "Hey some fraternity dudes can be assholes." Big surprise.

Rent Hollywood Shuffle by Robert Townsend and then check out the reset of his film. He is good.

Terrible

To be honest the movie was not all that great. I was really excited for it at first. It's severely over-hyped by my community. Even though it was a satire it failed to portray African American appropriately and was pretty prejudicial towards the White community. and Asians at one point. Additionally the acting was subpar, jokes were flat. All the best scenes were already shown in the trailers. This movie was supposed to bridge a gap and instead it helps instigate the already hostile race relations in the US. Some of the statistics also mentioned are purposely misguided and slanted or taken out of context. I thought the movie would be fair in this regard.

I was really disappointed. Given the cost of movies too these days and how far you might have to travel to a theater it's playing in you should probably wait for it to be OnDemand if you're to see it at all.
