Movie Info

When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on "The Green Book" to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger-as well as unexpected humanity and humor-they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.

You watch "Green Book" wishing it were a little better but nonetheless enjoying how very good much of it is, thanks to Mortensen and Ali, who make every moment sing.

The acting is better than the dialogue, which is better than the plotting. And I have to confess that in the current, insanely divisive political climate, I enjoyed Green Book's spoon-feeding mightily.

M oviegoers who will leave this movie having learned for the first time that Dr. Shirley and Green Books existed but only through a white lens, deserved better than this shallow introduction to an integral part of Black history.

Humor... keeps the movie floating, weightlessly, above the appalling bedrock of its ponderous assumptions.

Nov 19, 2018 | Full Review…

It's not quite Racism for Dummies, but the strokes are so broad and the tone so breezy that "I saw Green Book" could qualify as the new "I have a black friend."

The tone leans sentimental, if not quite sugary. But the actors' honest chemistry takes Farrelly's movie to the next level. This small tale of American goodness deserves your full attention.
