Some thought the film was unrealistic and unbelievable. If you look at it on the surface, this would be true. However, the film did an excellent job in bringing out the lifestyles of many Asian American kids brought up in this generation. True, many of the scenes may be highly exaggerated, but as an Asian American growing up in this generation, i feel it made a real connection to my life and the friends i grew up with. Many outside people would not understand this and understand this movie. For those who do, i highly recommend this movie.
