Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Mr. Chan's skill with actors - particularly with Ms. Mei and Mr. Pang's persuasive, easygoing banter - compensates for the story's limitations.
Fresh: A curiously likable, entertainingly laid-back Asian-American take on all-too-familiar dysfunctional family tropes, this Kickstarter-enabled effort boldly mines farce along with sentiment.
Fresh: Nimbly avoiding the excesses of melodrama and the recessiveness of mumblecore, Chan and his likably low-key cast navigate hairpin turns from drama to comedy to outright farce with an impressive sense of proportion.
Fresh: This disarmingly low-key genre-hybrid delivers both dramatically and comedically.
Touching and Funny
A brother, who took care of his mother while she was dying, and a sister, who wasn’t there for her, must clean out their mother’s house together. They work out their difference’s in a touching and comical way. Even though the plot gets a little strange, everything seems real in this wonderfully shot and acted film.
jp chan’s a picture of you review
For one, at the beginning, I was expecting it to be all full of drama. However, there are pleasant surprises that leave you with light-hearted humour and amusement.
The characters represented were presented well, and with focus on growth and tackling the Asian stereotypes to an amusing and funny approach.
Funny and touching without being forced
This was an excellent movie. First, what a treat it is to see actors of color have roles in which their race is not the main focus of the story. The writing and acting really shine here and it is an interesting blend of genres both comedic and dramatic without feeling melodramatic or forced. The characters and story are engaging and there are many moments of surprise and delight. You’ll find yourself routing for the characters. Looking forward to what this director has in store for the future!
