Storyline

A confident young man with a unique style and a solid entrepreneurial spirit has made it his mission to bring the small pleasures in life to a global market. As an aspiring inventor inspired by history's most infamous jokesters, he's determined to jump through all the hoops in order to realize his dreams. When he's not taken seriously amongst the locals stateside, he takes it upon himself to travel to Shanghai and broker a manufacturing deal on his own. Lost in Shanghai, Johnson discovers that it takes more than a bright idea to succeed. It takes guts, determination, and a fist full of sneezing powder. Written by Anonymous

Heartfelt and hilarious. One of the most underrated movies on the last decade
4 November 2015 | by solomiraclesSee all my reviews

This movie is SO funny. If you've ever been particularly taken with the idea of novelty items -- from the Slinky to the Pet Rock -- and how these are created and marketed, then MADE IN CHINA may be the film for you. It follows a self-styled "novelty inventor" who travels to Shanghai to bring his "humorous domestic hygiene product" to the Asian masses. The production was shot on the fly, in China, without official permission from the Chinese government, which alone should've stirred up more headlines and interest for this film upon it's release. But the real story here is how funny this movie is. It hits you with jokes when you lest expect them, and all of them are character and story oriented jokes. Not just jokes for jokes sake. I hope more people discover this movie. It's become on of my all time favorites
