Mother Jones: Asian American in New Movie Reduced to “Ethnic Prop”

posted by Randall

 

21 & OverEarlier today, I tweeted Hyphen Magazine’s review of the comedy 21 & Over. It hailed the movie for breaking stereotypes of the sexless, nerdy Asian American male.

A review in Mother Jones has a different take on the flick. It called the character played by Korean American actor Justin Chon a ‘glorified ethnic prop.”

The review by criticized the movie for its gross, immature humor and excessive drunkenness.  Read both reviews in Mother Jones & Hyphen Magazine. Maybe even see the movie yourself and let us know what you think.
