Just came out of the screening in San Francisco today. Good audience reaction. Being an SAF, I'm all about supporting Asian American films. Yes, this is a clichéd romantic comedy. But the director and the actors do get the Asian family dynamics dead on. I was impressed by the actors they were able to get for this film e.g. Christine Baranski.

There is a slightly clever subplot to the film but I don't want to give it away. The business/legal issues portrayed in the film could have only been thought of by Fay's business school friends.

I liked Margaret Cho as the female best friend/sidekick. I think she could continue to play that role well in many other future films (Asian and non-Asian). If she doesn't mind being typecast as such.

OK, that's it for my very first film review!
