This was a cute movie, but also a little boring. I'm willing to bet my left foot that you've already seen this scenario: 'young people meet and fall in love, meddlesome parents try to break them up but love prevails'. Yawn. Right? For a romcom, it sure was light on the humour. Mom's tendency to lace her speech with hilarious sounding, heavily accented broken English did produce a few chuckles but that's about it. It isn't that it was a horrible story or that the acting, though nothing spectacular, was bad. It's just that nothing about it really stands out. The story has been done to death, the acting is acceptable but under the radar, no good kisses or noteworthy physical interaction between the leads (they are supposedly in love but tend to sit miles a part from each other), no eye candy, no good soundtrack. Of all the movies out there to watch there's no real incentive to pick this one. You've seen it before, and nothing new or fresh happens to warrant a second viewing. Just the same old trope. But if you have 1.5 hr to waste go ahead and give it a go, if you insist.
