Provides interesting commentary on American - Filipina Relations
30 June 2000 | by (Simi Valley, CA) – See all my reviews

The sailors and airmen of the U.S. bases in the Philippines at first thought the Filipinas they met in the bars there were nothing more than little brown sex toys. Filipinas, however, have a way of getting under a man's skin. Between 1972 and 1992 23,000 of these little brown sex toys became wives of American servicemen returned home with them, and are now living the American dream as middle class wives and mothers. One of the protagonists in this movie must choose between his Filipina sweetheart and his cheerleader American girlfriend.
