I really enjoyed this review; it really spoke to me about the importance of someone's heritage. Being of Asian heritage myself, I love this movie. I enjoy seeing an all Asian movie that is comical and makes the whole story about Asia. Though despite all the good things about this movie, it still does not show the rich culture of Asia or help get rid of some of the stereotypes that are associated with Asian Culture. I have two younger brothers that are both in high school, despite them seeing movies with blood and war, I would not allow either of them to watch this movie. This movie despite it not being filled with too much sexual context still has quite a bit. It highlights that sleeping together before marriage is acceptable and normal, it sexualizes bachelor parties and idolizes money. with that, there are some extremely high points for this movie. It stresses the importance of family and how a family is always there for you. Its high lights the importance of being independent and not realizing on a man or woman to make you happy and my personal favorite it pays homage to the importance of elders. I enjoyed reading the review and really loved some of the points you made.
