A lot of fun
16 December 2007 | by (Ontario) – See all my reviews

I have seen this MANY times. ;)

I think the filmmaker Mike Cerrone has a lot of fun debunking the unnecessary tension between ethnic, national & cultural identities. Philosophically speaking, we differ most in those affectations we learn from our family and our environment - yet besides these acquired habits we all still have in common all our most essentially human traits.

It's a peaceful message one must admit. Equality is the ability to relax, recognize human universality, and laugh without constant fear of hostile judgement. If we're all the same nobody can be special, and in this film several ethnic groups are equally fair game.

Jamie Lynn de Scala is amazingly cute. C'mon rent this it's worth a few bucks and you'll laugh.
