  • 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.

  • Critic Reviews
    "[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."
    Los Angeles Times

    "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."
    New York Times

    "[A]n agreeably family-friendly film devoid of gooeyness....Like the game itself, the film's charm lies in its simplicity and zippy pace."
