Great Indie Film
6 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is what low-budget independent film-making should be. Good wacky story, played by good less-than-famous actors, with no dull spots and lots of fun surprises. Very glad I watched this film.

OK, why exactly does a comment have to be 10 lines long?

Anyway, Justin Lin and Quentin Lee have both continued to make good films (Justin Lin - "the Fast and the Furious" series and "Better Luck Tomorrow") and Quentin Lee ("Drift" and "Ethan Mao"), as well as actor John Cho of the Harold and Kumar movies, among others. I was pleased to note that actor Jeanne Chin also found plenty of subsequent work. You'll agree she deserves it after you see this movie.
