An unusually good romantic comedy, with two nice stars and some great messages
11 April 2011 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Yvonne (Sylvia Chang) is a Taiwan-born Chinese American who lives with her mother and son in California. Unhappily, Yvonne married the wrong man years ago, which left her financially strapped as the sole provider for her child, now in high school. She works as a reporter for a Chinese-American newspaper and gets constant grief from her grouchy mother. One day, Yvonne goes to interview a dentist for the paper, Dr. Jose (Esai Morales). Its a sort of "like at first sight" between the two of them, for the tooth expert has been unlucky in love as well. But, will a romance be possible between two vastly different cultures, with Yvonne's demanding Oriental family and Jose's equally distinct Hispanic relatives? What a lovely romantic comedy this is, in many ways. First, both of the stars' characters are in their late thirties, out of the normal romcom guidelines. Nevertheless, Chang and Morales are terrific, attractive and talented in their roles. The large supporting cast is also most wonderful. The sets, costumes, photography and secure direction are pleasing, too. Most of all, the script has some important themes and lessons to give about tolerance among diverse groups, which is done subtly well. Are you a fan of the comedy-romance genre but out of new viewing material? Look for this outright winner.
