I thought the whole point of the movie was to not be constricted by ethnicity, and to choose who you love based on the individual. i dont think the movie convincingly portrayed that he wasnt in love with the white woman he originally asked to marry. The proposal was very cute in the beginning, and other than a weirdness with her family, how did he all of a sudden fall out of love with a woman hed been dating for 2 yrs and asked to marry? all for someone he just met that has the exact same ethnicity as him. its like the whole movie someone is shouting in the background, yay for loving whomever, no matter what race or religion, but then towards the end he chooses his own race cuz he can relate to her better. Plus a large part of the movie deals with all the problems his parents have due to their different races, and even his best friend ends up with a white chick. to me, the message of the movie is ultimately anti-interracial relationships. confusing. being a halfie myself, i guess im disappointed with the obscurity of the movies final message.
the only other thing i have to say is that i think the actor is actually white, right? Ive never seen Chuck, but I'm pretty sure hes white. well, hes pretty hot as a mutt. tall dark and handsome :p
