A promiscuous woman who finds herself with an unplanned pregnancy and needs to figure out who the baby daddy is…NOW. Angela Yang loves sex. She loves it so much she needs to make baseball cards of her lovers to help her remember where she’s been. She doesn’t think twice about her lifestyle until she finds out that she’s pregnant. Her gay best friend, Gabriel Lugo tells her to “take care of it,” but her conservative sister, Juliet persuades Angela to get married to the baby’s father and lead a “normal” life like her. Angela listens to her sister, chooses to keep the baby, and goes on a quest to find the identity of the father by any means necessary.

This is a really enjoyable film that i really enjoyed this more than I thought I would. This little indie has a charm and a breezy way about it. Though it has a diverse cast. It really sheds a light on the asian community and busts some stereotypes about them.

This is the type of film like a early Woody Allen film that is more based around the personality and talents of the main star and character. Though it has plenty of side quirky characters. It is more centered on the talents and likeability of the lead. Which can make or break a film like this. Luckily actress Karin Anna Cheung is beautiful, charming , funny , confident and Talented. This is truly a star making role.

Though drama peaks it’s head this is mostly a comedy. Partly a sex comedy as there are quite a few sex scenes and nudity. It’s a very light film where it’s enjoyable and you probably won’t remember it a few days after you see it, but while you are watching it. It is entertaining.

It’s funny and cliché. She has a best gay friend who is around for more than comedic relief. He gets his time to shine and be three dimensional character and the film sends a message of acceptance. No matter what your sexual preference or how you lead your life plus how you lead your relationship and sex life as long as it is loving and not hurting anyone. It’s ok and who are we to judge what is normal.

This is more of a female centered film, but guys can enjoy it. It gets raunchy a few times but flips on a dime ad gets sentimental. If your looking for something that is not too serious while dealing with a serious subject. This is the film

I recommend this film. A good rental.
