Flawed, but recommended.
I want to see this again! I'm still sad today that it was so short. There were a lot of problems at the studio, which only aggravated Margaret Cho's personal problems. I know the studio told her it was "not Asian enough" and also "too Asian." Not having seen it in a decade, I can't say how culturally accurate it was -- I've read some complaints about Cho's character (shallow, and unlike herself), and about how appropriate it is to cast Chinese and Japanese actors as Koreans -- but I know enjoyed it very much. I really like Margaret's stand-up, I have a crush on B.D. Wong, and know Amy Hill is hilarious -- so it should have been good, and I blame the studio if it wasn't. If you can find it anywhere, I highly recommend it, despite it's flaws. I'm very sad to have so little access to Asian culture (including Asians raised western) in the media.
