    I thought it was going to be a comedy but it wasn’t at all funny.

    Loved the idea of family loyalty and tradition. Food scenes were delicious. Awkafina was excellent as were other members of the cast. The director captured scenes in China perfectly.

    Good depictions of Chinese family & culture. Loved family interactions. Very careful with politics & having a politically correct view of China but a perfect story about a family & its approach to the impending death of a beloved matriarch. Worth seeing & experiencing life in a modern extended Chinese family.

    It was a wonderful family story, told from an often unheard-from perspective. So unusual -- such a pleasant surprise -- to be wrapped up in such a compelling story without the standard sex/car chase/violence components,
