Better Luck Tomorrow

Rated NR

Shockingly, this MTV-produced film is not only watchable; it’s mostly pretty good. Four Asian teens, sick of doing things that look good on their college transcripts, form a crime ring while still getting straight A’s in math and science courses. The acting, especially by lead Parry Shen, is mostly spot-on, and the story is sad and unpredictable. There’s a major structural error in that the film builds to a climax, reaches it and still has 30 minutes to go, necessitating the tacking-on of another plot-line. But the very end is deliciously ambiguous and hints that maybe crime does pay which, as anyone who follows presidential politics knows, is patently true.
