In this satiric comedy-drama, a family of Filipino-Americans find themselves at odds as they simmer at different temperatures in the American melting pot. Mom and Dad Delacruz (Ester Pulido and Abe Pagtama) are a pair of immigrants from the Philippines who settled in Southern California some years ago and have raised three children, now aged from their late teens to early twenties. The Delacruzes are mindful of their cultural heritage but also try to blend in with the mainstream of American

Rich in wryly observed characterization culled from a freshly mined cultural perspective.

A small picture of many satisfactions.

An intriguing failure that promises more than it delivers.

Despite some amateurish moments, Pulido displays genuine visual intelligence.

Even though Pulido has affection for his characters and delivers a few laughs, he lacks a sense of cinematic rhythm or where to put his camera.

Ultimately, The Flip Side is more harmless and forgettable than it is inept, however, and at 80 minutes, it certainly won't offend anyone.

Pulido's dialogue and the family situation he thrusts earnest Darius into make for fine comedy with the laughs flowing freely, helped along by the efforts of his wonderful cast.
