Movie Info

A self-styled novelty inventor from East Texas creates a "humorous domestic hygiene product" and travels to China in hopes of getting his creation mass-produced. Johnson may be from a small American town, but he's got big international ideas. He's convinced that his product will set the marketplace ablaze if he can just get it produced and marketed, and what better place to make that happen than China. In China, everything has its price and anything is possible. But before Johnson can take the world by storm, he'll first need to navigate the back streets of Shanghai - no easy task for a simple country boy. Upon reaching his destination, Johnson discovers that it takes more than a great idea to strike it rich; it also takes determination, conviction, and the occasional fistful of sneezing powder.

Top Critic

A thoroughly charming, quirkily funny independent film with a standout performance that would never have been touched in a million years by a major studio.

Audience Reviews for Made in China

I wonder if I had an idea for an invention & needed somebody to make it for me, Would I go all the way to China to find somebody to make it & back me.I'm thinking probably not.I wouldn't give up until I found a backer in the US & then go through China if I had to.Made In China seemed to try & come off as a comedy but wasn't funny at all.It seemed more like a drama.Even though everything worked out in the end, I think this guy should've listened to his mother & kept it in his backyard
