I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, although I didn't come in with high expectations. I'm very surprised at the low rating it got I would definitely give this film a high 8.
This movie has all the spices required in making it an interesting, colorful and tasty story. It takes a humorous approach on cultural and gender differences without making you feel that it's "yesterday" story. Chi Muoi Lo did an excellent job for a first-timer. And I loved the chemistry between the African-American couple and between the entire cast in general. I was also impressed that the movie was filmed in a slightly different approach and conversations were cut off to keep the audience wondering what really did happened. Since some things weren't completely explained, it left the audience the chance to use their own reflections on what was going on between the people.... very intelligent. Not only was it dead serious at times but a cute comedy as well. I definitely would recommend you see it when you're in the mood to laugh and cry.
