PG-13 | | Comedy, Romance
A pair of childhood friends end up falling for each other when they grow up.
Ali Wong told New York Magazine that when it looked like Keanu Reeves might not have been available, a number of other men were considered for his role, including Hong Kong actor Tony Leung, Filipino-American actor and martial artist Mark Dacascos, Indian-American director M. Night Shyamalan, and Paul Giamatti (not Asian). The last option was Randall Park's idea (he thought Giamatti would be a funny choice) but Wong vetoed it, explaining, "It was very important to me that it be someone who was Asian-American who would also be Marcus's worst nightmare. Because if Daniel Dae Kim [who plays Sasha's fiancé in the beginning of the film] showed up, you'd be like, 'Ahh!' if you were Marcus. It's got to be even worse than that. So it's got to be someone who's internationally iconic, and someone who fits those two Venn diagrams is basically Keanu Reeves.... It's always been important to me, to express my desire and attraction toward Asian American men. Since I first watched Speed, I was very aware that Keanu was Asian American because my family and community wouldn't shut up about it. Maybe other people didn't know but I never forgot that."
Hey, where'd you get that condom?
Marcus Kim: Oh, um... seventh grade.
Sasha Tran: Oh.
Sasha Tran: who... who taught you how to put it on?
Marcus Kim: This lady came to our school... taught us, like, sex ed for a day, and... she put it on a banana.
Sasha Tran: Oh... did you practice at home with bananas?
Marcus Kim: No....
At 14:00, Sasha's seat belt appears and disappears between shots.
