Dir. Peter Wang | USA - China | 1986 | 101 min.

The first American movie shot in China, this delightful comedy follows Leo, a San Francisco computer programmer who quits his job and moves his family to stay with his sister in Beijing. Leo nostalgically searches for the traditional China he left behind, while his son Paul charms his cousins with his wild Western ways. This culture clash develops in hilarious directions, coming to a head in a climactic ping pong battle.
