This movie puts in 1.5 hours, all the possible drama living the life of a Filipino American. So sometimes you may think that it's unrealistic.... and it IS. It puts together all the possible different drama in the family. But if you want someone to understand how life is like as a flip, this movie does put it together nicely. Just dont expect a summer blockbuster, or a super tear jerk-er.
