Great movie
14 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a great movie. Not only was it a comedy but it also had a significant meaning about how people stereotype Asians. For a movie made by 2 friends with very very little budget and no experience in film making except by reading books like film making for dummies and other books at borders books this film was well worth the money and if it ever comes out on DVD i would definitely but it. i would recommend this film for all since there's not many movies or opportunities to see an all Asian cast. Hope this film comes out on DVD one day. Go see this film and recommend it to all your friends so this film can make it. we need more independent films with positive messages make it.
