A bit of a surprise, I just expected a goofy “American Chinese food isn’t Authentic” movie and you get a bit of that, but you also get a nice little examination of how much we have fucked over our Chinese immigrants and the solutions they have come up with to survive. Not always amazing film making – the vector graphics feel cheap and the talking head setups are uninspired, but it has heart and sometimes that can overcome technical limitation.
