Good Stuff!

This movie is clever and funny! Stephen and Patrick put together a solid cast and an entertaining storyline. They had me at the title but the movie delivered as well. Their special sauce? Witty jokes mixed with a bit of nostalgia for the 80s and a couple of jokes about Asian culture and life in Hollywood. They know how to make fun of themselves as well, Stephen looking like Lou Diamond Phillips and Patrick like the brother in La Bamba. The acting during the fight scenes looked like the real deal. Randall Park shined too. For those who like to watch "Fresh off the Boat" (also with Park), this is right up your alley. You may see more and more people walking around "Awesome Asian Bad Guys" t-shirts, stickers, etc. This has the makings of a cult following for sure. On the whole, it was a Big League flick - thanks for the home run!
