audience pleaser
14 September 2007 | by busch-11See all my reviews

The comment from liuweichun2002 was unfortunate and misinterpreted. This is not a film about demeaning racial stereotypes any more than MY BIG FAT Greek WEDDING was and I don't know of any Greeks who complained about that. FUSION won the audience award at the 2005 Hawaii International Film Festival and was so popular that extra screenings were scheduled. I was there standing in the wings and when it finished I told director Frank Lin that he was going to win the audience award - why? - because the predominantly Asian audience was roaring with laughter throughout. American Fusion IS, like Greek Wedding, a sweet sleeper of a movie that should find a wide audience of any ethnicity. I know I'm going to play it at my theater.
