Plot Summary

During an ill-fated experiment, Chinese-American scientist Arthur (Marc Hayashi) accidentally kills one of his coworkers. This doesn't bode well for his job prospects. With his career tanking, Arthur's personal life is a cross-cultural comedy of errors: Arthur is chasing after a white woman with an Asian fetish while his best buddy, Joey (Tony Leung Ka Fai), is cheating on his Jewish wife with an Asian prostitute. Not least, Arthur's Jewish mother persists in thinking she can cook Chinese food.
