Description
Winner of the Genie Award (the Canadian Oscar) for Best Actress in this 1994 film, Sandra Oh plays Jade, an aspiring actress trying to juggle her traditional Chinese parents' expectations with her own Westernized leanings ("I wondered why we couldn't be like the Brady Bunch."). Among the things they try to dictate are her choice of career and husband, bringing forth their own candidates for the latter. One of them is gay, and she wiggles out of that one neatly by telling them he had her split the check.

"Enticingly bright, 'Double Happiness' is a cogent and funny schmooze…. [It] is an audacious first feature for writer-director Mina Shum of Vancouver, who clearly knows what it's like to have a foot in the free-wheeling Western world while following the old paths of duty and respect her parents demand."—San Francisco Chronicle

"There's also an infectious performance by an uncle from China (Greg Chan), who must be pleased at all costs but who turns out to be a great deal more flexible and 'modern' than Jade's parents realize. 'Double Happiness' is a title with several meanings, but it reminded me of the names of lots of Chinese restaurants, where it means, I believe, that they'll fill you up and make you happy, too. That's sort of how this movie works."—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
