Less a movie than an essay.
What seemed sharp and pointed onstage comes across pedantically in the film, which treats its subject with a clumsy heavy-handedness.
A painfully miscast Parker nervously flips her hair and waves her hands, sitcom-style, as a do-gooding dean of students.
Despite the film's haphazard choices and aversion to subtlety, Parker and Williamson come off as appealing sparring partners.
In style and content, Sarah Jessica Parker starrer is the kind of earnest, talky, modestly scaled social-issue pic that seems predestined for the smallscreen.
Though the movie trails off unsatisfyingly, it raises intriguing and candid, if unanswerable, questions about race relations and political correctness.
