My Wedding and Other Secrets

Emily (Michelle Ang), a dorky New Zealand born Chinese undergrad, finds James (Matt Whelan) the love of her dreams while doing some bad foil fencing. The only problem is that James has not a drop of Chinese blood in him which is a criteria for acceptance in to Emily's straight laced Chinese family. The solution that seems logical to the couple is to get married in secret and hide it from the parents. You are then treated ninety minutes of whining as they figure out a way for a white man to gain acceptance in to a Chinese family. And no, learning kung-fu is not an option. That might have actually made the film a bit more funny instead of this trite affair that passes off as romance.
