The one sharp joke buried in the Jell-O of this amiable, low-energy comedy is that white people can’t tell black people apart. The comedian Sinbad — always PG, always likable, often comedically shapeless — plays Kevin, a decent-hearted, wiseacre underachiever who, while fleeing buffoonish loan sharks in an airport, bumps into a decent-hearted, rich, square suburbanite (Phil Hartman, doing one of his patented Republican daddies-with-a-lockjaw-smile) awaiting the arrival of an old friend he hasn’t seen in 25 years. Kevin passes himself off as the anticipated Black Person, is lavishly welcomed by his duped host, and, by the end of his extended visit, teaches the whole square family how to loosen up and get down.B-
