I remembered this being mentioned and joked about when I was younger. So I finally watched it years later. Not really funny.

This is an awesome movie...I remember watching it when I was driving by the local movie theater and the name intrigued me...Classic fillum of a great story about one recognizing and embracing his roots...This movie is filled with hilarious and unforgettable moments by all the main cast...I could possibly recite the entire movie while watching it, and it's been almost 9 years since it's release!!!...This is definitely a movie for everyone to watch to learn something about themselves or another culture...

Think of cliche from a romantic comedy. Go ahead, think one one now. Got one? Good. Whatever it is, I guarantee it's in American Desi. This film trows every cliche in the book, and then the book, at the audience. The film's intentions are good: How do second generation emigrants negotiate their identity? How does one reconcile heritage and a new culture? Surely there's a good film to be made with this in mind (East is East was quite good).

Aside from American Desi's shallowness, contrived and cliche-ridden plot, it's simply poorly constructed. Bad framing, poor editing, awful acting (for the most part). A decent soundtrack, though. Also, who showers in the dark?

We had to watch it in 10 parts via YouTube. Yes, this is an Indi(an) Film but it translates into most Asian cultures (mine being Korean). It is hilarious and so freakin' true :)
