Metacritic Score

  • 60

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    At once a tender love story and a psychological suspense drama that lays bare the acute tensions that threaten to tear apart an upwardly mobile suburban L.A. Chinese American family.

  • 40

    Variety Robert Koehler

    Messy admixtures of drama and mockery crucially undermine pic's serious message.

  • 30

    The New York Times

    By the time we reach the "Butch Cassidy"-inspired climax, any filaments of credibility still clinging to these characters have completely disappeared.
