This movie was great. If you're Chinese-American, or you can enjoy humor from movies such as superbad, then you will definitely enjoy this movie. I thought it was a great movie and definitely worth the time to watch. I may be slightly biased because I am also Chinese, but this movie was great for me. The acting was not exceptionally great, but it was above average, and the children were great
