Taj Mahal Badalandabad leaves Coolidge College behind for the halls of Camford University in England, where he looks to continue his education, and teach an uptight student how to make the most out of her academic career.
When he hears that the new female employee digs ambitious men who are the store employee of the month, a slacker gets his act together but finds himself in competition with his rival, an ambitious co-worker.
An energized cast in top comedic form drive a very funny and poignant story about trying to `go home.' Colin Miller's film moves effortlessly through the world of the Cho Family dynasty, a two thousand year old martial arts dynasty that had immigrated to America only to go soft and corrupt. I agree that Mr. Cho is the most horrible person I've ever seen in a movie and it's hard not to watch him without screaming with laughter. He plays the cuckolded blind master who torments and berates his children into screwed up grown ups. Shang, played by Gianni Lazuli, is one of the most selfish characters I've ever seen and one of the funniest. Ling gets big points for being lovable. A charming cast in a well told story. Even the most minor characters glow with humor. Watch for Sara Litz in a hilarious turn as Shang's reprehensible `model' girlfriend. There are more laughs in some scenes than in many full movies. My face hurt from smiling all the way through it.
