| Feel good, funny and relatable
Pretty much my favourite pic up and watch movie so far this year. So much of this film was relatable which shows that families hold similarities regardless of where they're from. If you're normally put off by subtitled film, then this one could turn you to the dark side as it's easy to follow despite 80% of it is in Chinese. I laughed, I smiled, I said 'ahhhh' a lot. It's a yes from me!
