Note: this review contains a spoiler.
"Carbon Copy" is an intelligent, funny film starring Denzel
Washington (as "Roger") and George Segal (as "Walter"). The film is
about a married, white executive who meets his illegitimate black
son for the first time.
He is married to a racist, rich woman. His stepdaughter is a
racist as well. Walter's family are not happy when he brings home
19-year-old black Roger. They look down on him as a poor, black
hoodlum, but little do they know, Roger is smarter than all of them.
There's an interesting surprise twist at the end.
I thoroughly enjoyed this film. It was definitely worth the
watch. It is smart and funny. It was an excellent effort, especially
for a low budget movie.
