In the heart of Chinatown, New York, an ornery, chain-smoking, newly widowed 80-year-old grandma is eager to live life as an independent woman. When a local fortuneteller predicts a lucky day in her future, Grandma decides to head to the casino, only to land herself on the wrong side of luck, attracting the attention of some local gangsters. Desperate, Grandma employs the services of a bodyguard from a rival gang and soon finds herself right in the middle of a Chinatown gang war.

Silly and funny, appreciating the relationships between the generations - this was a nice diversion of a film. Grandma had a lot going on and she didn't always explain herself or her choices - but why should she? A very rare lead role for an elder woman. I was worried the "gangster" theme might be too graphically violent, as that seems to be a trend in so called comedies - but it was not. Also interesting blend of languages in dialogue with legible subtitles as needed. Filmed on location in NYC Chinatown - so if you're familiar enough with the neighborhood, it's fun to play "did you see that?!"

Closed caption. Overrated, gang violence. Winnings at the casino exaggerated.

A cranky Chinese grandmother comes into some questionable good luck... what will she do? I loved this movie; it was funny, charming and a fun visit to Chinatown in New York.
