Very much liked this romantic comedy, big kudos to Fay Ann Lee for writing, direction, and starring in the title role!

Grace Wang (Fay Ann Lee) is the daughter of a Chinese couple who immigrated to Chinatown, NYC. Yet, her childhood was unhappy, for classmates made fun of her clothes, her Chinese name and her Oriental looks. Finally, the little gal, admiring Grace Kelly, decided to turn her Cinderella background into a successful life. Her one pal from long ago, Janie (Margaret Cho) followed her lead. The both of them now work for a lucrative financial firm, where Grace is a top adviser. Although there is a good looking Chinese man in the firm, Grace resists his overtures. One night, she attends an "upper class" event to make connections for her company. There the ladies mistake her for being an heiress to a famous clothing line, Shanghai Wang. Although she tries to correct them, they talk right over her. Also, throwing her heart into a tizzy, she meets Andrew Barrington, Jr. (Gale Harold) a handsome, rising attorney. This handsome man, almost engaged to another blueblood, is likewise quite taken with Grace. As they extend their friendship, Grace learns Andrew is interested in fighting for better wages in the Chinatown sweatshops that supply clothes to a up-and-coming designer. Whoa, its the same company Grace's firm is considering for an acquisition at an inflated price, for they are not aware of the designer's use of the sweatshops. Yet, as Andrew believes Grace is rich because of her family, he is aghast when he discovers her true roots, only because he believes she lied to him. Then, too, Grace attempted to warn the firm of acquiring the designer's line, only to be demoted and humiliated. With her heart broken and her job on the line, is Cinderella going to return to rags and cinders? This lovely film has a very talented lady at the helm. Fay Ann Lee, who speaks perfect English and Chinese, wrote, directed, and starred as Grace. Let's bow to her at once. Harold makes a very attractive and talented co- star while Cho, Christine Baranski, and others do fine work. There are nice sets, costumes, and amenities, too. Fall away from your dull routine and go find Falling for Grace.

Comedy of errors; needs better acting and a tighter script.

Cinematography: 7/10 Way too much soft focus.

Sound: 7/10 Fine for the English speakers. The incidental music is cloying.

Acting: 5/10 This is a mixed bag, to say the least. BD Wong, Lewis Black, Christine Baranski, Ato Essandoh, Roger Rees, and Margaret Cho were fine. Christine Baranski was the best; her discussion with Andrew Jr about how he had to marry Kay was one of the most genuine moments in the film. On the other hand, Fay Ann Lee, Gale Harold, Stephanie March, and Ken Leung were much less satisfying, with Gale Harold being the absolute worst.

Screenplay: 4/10 There were too many clichés from the romantic comedy field. I have nothing against clichés; even the oldest can be funny if done right. There were only a few recognizable attempts at humor. I found myself thinking that I should be laughing at this, but I did not laugh once.

Hallmark-type movie kicked up a notch

This was basically a Hallmark romance plot but with a great cast, and much better writing. But since Hallmark movies are my guilty pleasure, this one was right up my street. The cast was very intriguing: obviously someone has some very good friends. A quick perusal of the cast reveal some very respected and high profile actors and comedians. Bobby Flay even makes a cameo and John Walsh of America's Most Wanted fame has a bit part. I would love to know what got BD Wong so much in a twist that he felt he had to disavow his participation in the movie. He certainly hasn't directed or produced anything since. It was a warm, amusing, unpretentious, romantic movie with the usual conflict, misunderstandings and a good subplot. I loved the fact that the family spoke Chinese with subtitles. Don't know why, I just liked listening to it.
