We all know that Asians (at least the ones that I know) are obsessed about food. When thinking about food tv and Asians, what comes to mind is Iron Chef. A series about Chinese Restaurants are the best that could be hoped by me.
Greg Pak’s Asian American Film website is pushing “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle“, in which two underachieving Asian Americans have misaventures while pursuing a craving for the slider-style burgers. From the people that brought you “Dude, Where’s My Car”, I wouldn’t expect much, but the initial reviews on RottenTomatoes are strong. OK, it’s a Cheech and Chong stoner movie, but apparently it’s smart, and like Better Luck Tomorrow, theatergoer response will drive future investment in Asian American film. So, think about the crave the weekend of July 30th.
