Overall, I found this film sweet and heartwarming with a balance of comedic quips and teary scenes. All the stories explored all aspects of Asian ideals in a Western setting and I'm pretty sure that many viewers of Asian descent will relate to a multitude of characters in this film. I wouldn't consider this an Asian-American film since this takes place in Vancouver, Canada.
