Better than Better Luck Tomorrow
19 August 2004 | by chrismararacSee all my reviews

I liked this movie a lot because it had Asians in it and they never touched upon the fact that they were Asian or made referred them as being Asian. To me, this was the first movie that broke that mold in every shape or form. Other movies depicting Asian actors would praise that it was a movie that showed Asians as Americans, but they always touched upon the fact that they were Asians. For example, in Better Luck Tomorrow, when the two kids were watching a porno thinking it was an Asian female classmate and the topic of who her boyfriend was, one of the kids was relieved that she wasn't dating a white guy. Harold and Kumar goes to White Castle had marketed it saying that it was just two Asian Americans who go on an adventure, but here and there are little speeches and commentary of what it is to be Asian. Not saying that is wrong or anything, but Book of Rules ignored the whole Asian thing and showed a movie with Asian actors just being regular people without having to tell the viewers in any shape or form that they are Asians and they have issues. That was refreshing. I had the chance to converse with Mark Marking also after the showing at the DC Film Festival and he's a great actor and I've been waiting for this to come on to DVD.
