What I loved and what I hated

"This movie is a challenge to Eurocentricity; it does show a slice of Asian-American male life rarely seen in film. Too often, either no characters are Asian-American males or just one is, and he is usually to the peripheries and not essential to the script. Say what you want about "Harold and Kumar," but the film did center Asian-American males in a valiant way. This work goes even further than "Harold and Kumar." Here, the main character is Indian-American, so is his love interest, and so are most of his friends. Many people may think that Asian Americans are only surrounded by each other when at home with their nuclear family. However, there are neighborhoods in Southern Cal, Northern Cal, Washington State, New Jersey, etc. where Asian Americans are the majority and are far from being the only brown or yellow face in the mix. I love how this movie centers an oft-forgotten group.
However, this was a bad film. It had bad writing and amateurish actors. I can only give it so many PC points."
