Critic Reviews for Fakin' Da Funk
Chey shows a keen ear for black English, a well-honed comic imagination, and an upbeat humanism; Zoltan David's camera work is outstanding, especially the bravura Steadicam opening shot.
Audience Reviews for Fakin' Da Funk
Adorable movie. At times cheesy, a little corny, but sweet and without missing the point. Dante Basco is clearly "down with the brown" in this 90s "erase the color lines" film about a Chinese boy adopted by black parents who eventually move from Atlanta to South Central. Hilarity, of course, ensues. A second story involves a Chinese exchange student (played by the comic Margaret Cho) gets sent to the "wrong hood" and is taken in by a black family as well, played by John Witherspoon (Boondocks), Nell Carter, and Tichina Arnold (Everybody Hates Chris). I enjoyed it. I'm a fan of these kinds of flicks, especially the comedy. It was also a trip seeing various known black actors in their youths, like Duane Martin and Reynaldo Rey. If you're bored and looking for a cute, funny popcorn movie to bide your time, check it out.
