        I have not seen the movie yet however I can attest to this. My mother was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in 1996. I did not want to tell her as I know, as a chiropractor the mind/body connection. She was perfectly fine, no pain, no limits physically, mentally, psychologically. Upon hearing the news from the doctor who felt obligated to tell her..against our family wishes, the next day my mom was in a wheelchair.....the change was that immediate.

        Incredible movie. The food, the laughs, the tears and awkward moments. I was blown away.

          No authentic Asian movie will be without a dinner scene with lots of food.

            I saw this movie this afternoon on Maui and loved it. I could relate to everything they did and say.

          Saw this movie today and it was so good. I was expecting it to be a total sob fest, but I actually laughed as much as I cried. I'm so glad that that dinner scene got kept because I felt like it was such an important scene that really stuck with me. I'm excited to watch this movie again.

          ALSO, just want to point out Lulu's great highlight!!!
