The ending feels kind of lame, but I'm just glad for an authentic-feeling movie about the Chinese American experience because there's very few.

It's a mildly quirky, eager-to-be-liked romantic comedy with good acting that just happens to have nude Asian lesbian sex scenes. No one can complain about this.

I really dug this. There are a couple of scenes that make it feel very of it’s time, but it’s mostly very free of melodrama and all of the characters feel like real people. The acting and writing is just that good. The themes of reluctance, cultural taboos and loneliness all dealt spoke to me. The romantic stuff is legitimately endearing, and all of the main characters feel very well-realized. Sure, it’s often pretty cute and charming, but it’s really much more than that. Funny, sad, gay, good.

I had to watch this in two parts, and I was very eager to see the second part. It was a small disappointment, but just a small one.

Another rare queer film including/revolving around POC that you NEED to see. Especially for being made in 2004, this really holds up and feels relevant and relatable as hell. Not perfect and maybe not for everyone especially if you're not into the romance genre, but pretty damn good. I love Wu's other queer film as well, so I can't wait to see what she does next. I give 8 hot gay doctors out of 10.

Sweet. The passivity & conformity of the characters with cultural norms was often infuriating, but the ending was very good & made up for all the angst.
