Editorial Reviews

Jim is a young, closefisted Chinese American living in LA who desperately finds himself with a stack of disposable cameras, invitations, champagne bottles, and a ten-thousand dollar engagement ring bill. The only thing missing is a bride. In financial debt and miserable from having his fiancé leave two weeks prior to Valentine's day, Jim asks his best friend, a Japanese hitman, to kill him. With less than four days to live, Jim treks to the mountains to find his fate. Along the way, he encounters a pizza delivery boy with lucky charms, searches for the funeral spot of his choice and meets a girl.

Format: DVD
James Kyson Lee proves he can carry a film as a leading man. Fortunately, he's also in good company with fellow actors to share the screen with, an amusing script that allows for physical comedy (mostly physical reactions) and a director who knows how to move the story along.

Jim Lee (JKL) was due to be married to the woman he loved, only she's run off with the Filipino DJ who was going to be performing at their reception. If you're not familiar with Chinese culture, it's like pouring salt onto an open wound. A friend takes him on trip to get away from it all and it's there he meets a wouldbe girlfriend. Unfortunately, Jim has also asked his friend (who happens to be an assassin) to murder him before Valentine's Day. With the date looming just ahead and the potential for love on the horizon, anything could happen.

The only complaint I had was the dramatic and somewhat violent final act that felt as if it came out of nowhere before settling back down. Fortunately, it doesn't last as long as it could have and doesn't take away from the film much.

All in all, very enjoyable, especially with Composer George Shaw's score complimenting it.

I was expecting less - way less, but it was actually DAMN GOOD!

I never heard of this movie before and it wasn't promoted at all or barely promoted. I only came across it because I wanted to see all or almost all Asian American films. This film somehow managed to show up on my Netflix recommendation and I'm glad it did. I rented it and I loved it! I watched it more than a few times, and I usually do that for movies.

This is a way low-budget film and it managed to be better than the some high budget films I seen. There's no special effects or 3d graphics in this movie - all there is an awesome story line, acting skills, and great directing. The actors really made me believe their character. Also, a well written script goes a long way. There were a bunch of humor in it. It's like everything a person would want in a good high budget movie, but they used "less money" to make it.

I say everyone that like these little independent Asian American films should BUY or RENT this one! This one actually worth it.

Rare Asian American Comedy. Very funny, great script writting and love the way it captures the stereotypes. A little exaggerated perhaps but that's what makes this film funny.
