Storyline Heading
When Tony Lip, a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley, 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.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Green Book is effective and affecting while being careful to avoid overdosing its audience on material that some might deem too shocking or upsetting. Green Book uses limited humor to lessen the sense of discomfort that viewers might feel from a study of Dr. Shirley's experiences and observations.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good "Green Book” is the kind of old-fashioned filmmaking big studios just don't offer anymore. It's glossy and zippy, gliding along the surface of deeply emotional, complex issues while dipping down into them just enough to give us a taste of some actual substance.

NY Post Full Review
Very Good The lighthearted drama, about a road trip by two men — one white, one black — is unflinchingly optimistic. "Green Book” could be accused of being clichéd if the story wasn't also true. And the tone leans sentimental, if not quite sugary. But the actors' honest chemistry takes Farrelly's movie to the next level.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Good Farrelly manages to respect the severity of the characters' social context while ensuring that Green Book never steps outside its protagonists' relationship, a delicate balancing act that credibly makes a feel-good, effervescent comedy out of its thorny subject matter without ever sanitizing it.
