Thai Town is a six-block area near Hollywood, Los Angeles, which is home to over 50,000 expatriated Thais. The town is such a gateway for Thais entering America it was dubbed Thailand's 77th Province. The movie follows a Thai family as it struggles to survive in Los Angeles' fast-paced consumerist culture, while still maintaining traditional values. The identity struggle between Thai-ness and the high octane way of life on the west coast of America, defined by hip-hop, drugs, street racing and violence, affects Pat, a good boy tempted by a life of crime, and his sister.Written by
I was a little harsh on that movie. It's not a masterpiece, but maybe I should've given it a 4 or a 5. I'm pretty sure that some have given this a higher rating, for the fact alone that Candice Michelle is in this. And she shows "what her momma gave her"! ;o) When I first watched the movie, I immediately looked online for Candice M. and her other movie credits. She wasn't even listed in the credits here, so I reported that. I guess you can thank me (and maybe a few other Dudes who found out too), that she's listed here now! Other than that you have some decent action scenes, a plot that isn't half bad (for a b-movie that is) and some (unintentional?) funny lines of dialogue.
If you like your (b-) action movies with a little "spice", than I guess you can watch this. Just don't expect anything special (other than Candice that is! ;o) )
