"We saw this film last night on USA and it was cool. Had some great moments and made us laugh. The entire cast was great and really brought everyone together. We need to see more great films like this. Like the lady said previously it gives me hope when i see a film like this. Lots of talented people coming together, bringing the races together. I really enjoyed this film. I hope more people see it. And my props to Amazon for this review service. it makes people get to play reviewer! Thanks!"

"We found the film to be great. The humanity in the film is evident from the beginning to the end. You will never see another film like this because it cut across so many channels including race, love, culture, etc. The reviews that people got up here in San Francisco was great. I think the San Francisco Chronicle gave it 4 stars or something and we agree! Go check it out! It was also the highest-rated film on USA Networks last year. We love Margaret Cho and we know some people who auditioned for the movie are bitter and are expressing their jealousy in a negative way, so let the public be the judge about it. WATCH THIS FILM!"
Quite impressive! Margaret Cho steals the film!

"A great film exploring personal identity in culture and class. Dante basco does a wonderful job in his portrayal of an Asian boy who was adopted and raised in a Black family. Great development of characters and of the relationships between the characters.Margaret Cho steals the show with her role as an exchange student who has been accidentally dropped off at the wrong host family but learns to soak up the culture throughout the movie. Now you KNOW that's gonna be hilarious!Check out this movie. It's really good. The storyline moves smoothly and the acting is great in this multi-racial film. Pam Grier is excellent as the matriarch in the film."

"Two thumbs up!! I originally saw this movie several years ago, loved it and had to own it. It was funny, had a great theme and provided a universal message. Stereotypes are misleading and as an African American Male, I can relate to how incorrect they can be. Faking the funk deals with this subject matter in a humorous yet effective way and demonstrates the commonality of all people, regardless of race. I live in the Baldwin Hills area of Los Angeles and couldn't help by chuckle at the reference to persons living in the area. Buy it--you'll definitely enjoy it."
