Movie Reviews

This is a wonderful film for families
C. Weaver | Las Vegas, Nevada | 12/19/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had the opportunity of seeing this at a film festival and now have pre-ordered the DVD. It is a wonderful story about a disfuntioncal family. Even thougt they are Asian I feel it can apply to many families. I do not understand the reason for the "R" rating. Do not let turn you off from seeing this film. I think mature young teenagers will also enjoy it, and would hate for them to miss this message. It is about life and what is happening in the world today between the generations.

I am not Asian, but felt it applied to many families that have old customs and older people who feel their children should follow family traditions.

This film has great acting, photograpy is wonderful and these up-and-coming filmmakers are ones to watch.

I had thought it should have won CineVegas' film festival."
Taking life as it comes - this is a film to enjoy
L. Riggin | 02/13/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a rare film. Nothing is trite or predictable; it's a very creative script that makes each character endearing. There are no bad guys here, just people taking life as it comes. Others have said that this could be any family, not specifically an Asian-American family and I think that is the point: the laughter and the tears transcend heritage or skin color."
So you think you're family is nutz? See this movie!
Joyce Schwarz | Marina Del Rey, CA USA | 02/12/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Red Doors is an acclaimed and festival winning film about a dysfunctional Chinese American family who's door is yes, red. Balancing your ethnicity in a modern world is just part of the story, living sane in an insane world is another part and just rolling with the punches is another. Outragous black comedy that breaks all cliches about Asian families and roles in our society. Retirement is a subplot that many Baby Boomers can relate to. Funny, poignant and a bit maddening! Every character plays it to the hilt, and the deadpan script squeezes out some unbelievable dialogue that makes this a very special film. See it after an argument with your family. Or before you go home for a visit. Or when you break up with your fiance. Love and life goes on. Family is more than just relationships."
Great story
Martin Lewis | New Jersey | 03/09/2007

"This is a fantastic film that has clearly defined characters that I cared about and a story that kept me interested thoughout the film. It is really a slice of suburban life, kind of like American Beauty with a much happier ending. Check this out."
