Entertainment Reviews:

Los Angeles Times - 09/05/2008
"[I]t manages to sustain a goofy-sweet comic energy and offers sly observations about assimilation, sibling rivalry and the art of competitive maternal bragging."
New York Times - 09/05/2008
"A race-based comedy with a mischievous, post-race sensibility, PING PONG PLAYA mines hip-hop comedy gold from the least gangsta context imaginable: the assimilated Chinese-Americans of suburban California."
Film Comment - 09/01/2008
"[A]n agreeably family-friendly film devoid of gooeyness....Like the game itself, the film's charm lies in its simplicity and zippy pace."

Product Description:

Documentary filmmaker Jessica Yu (IN THE REALMS OF THE UNREAL) makes the transition from nonfiction to comedy with this indie laugher. Christopher "C-dub" Wang (played by the film's co-writer, Jimmy Tsai) imagines that he has a future as a basketball star, but an accident changes his life. His mother and brother, both renowned ping pong players, are injured in a car crash, and now it's up to C-dub to teach his mother's ping pong class.

Description by Image Entertainment:

You'll have a ball with this heartwarming, hilarious comedy! Christopher "C-dub" Wang is a Chinese-American gangsta-rapper wannabe with outrageous, and unlikely, dreams of becoming a pro basketball star. When his ping pong champion brother gets hurt, it's up to C-dub to pick up the paddle and save the family business. But when he's facing off against a devious rival player in the ping pong tournament of the year, will C-dub be up to the challenge' With some surprising help from an unusual group of kids, anything could happen!
