Hilarious! One of the best comedies of the decade.
‘A man’s story about his early life in Taiwan and then deciding to uproot that life by moving to America, dealing with the struggles that accompany that, and then ultimately having to come to grips with how that literal and internal journey has effected him and his daughter’ sounds like a great narrative. Unfortunately, the movie lacks nuance that would help ground it.
The characters feel like archetypes. The movie doesn’t take its time to characterize the people we follow…
