The film's examination of the first-generation American experience feels fresh. The delivery, however, is hardly original.
It's a root-worthy picture with its share of warm, amusing moments, an attractive pair of leads and a vivid use of Big Apple locales.
If there isn't much subtlety or surprise in Yeung's screenplay, his direction is graceful enough to make this a pleasant if unmemorable bittersweet love story.
Whatever nuance can be found in Front Cover, the story of an openly gay fashion stylist and a seemingly homophobic Chinese movie star, belongs chiefly to the performances of Jake Choi and James Chen.
[A] sexy, ambitious comic drama.
While the film adheres to the conventions of romantic melodramas, its fascinations from a cultural perspective remain strong throughout.
These good intentions never translate into a good movie.
For all its awkwardness in bridging the personal and the cultural, Front Cover does deliver as a nice little romantic comedy with a pair of endearing leads.
[A] predictable but occasionally endearing romantic comedy.
The very few instances where stereotypes are challenged are forced and didactically delivered.
Though too slight to be memorable, the gay romance "Front Cover" takes a gentle, thoughtful look at the intersection of ethnicity and sexuality.
