Jimmy Tsai plays Christopher ''C-dub'' Wang, a Los Angeles-based, basketball-obsessed, Chinese-American slacker. Unfortunately for Chris, his family lives for ping pong, a pursuit in which he has little interest. When his mother and brother, Michael, are injured in a traffic accident, however, he is forced to take over his mother's ping pong school at the local Chinese community center. Chris begins to appreciate the benefits of ping pong when he starts using the class to make some extra money on the side and befriends one of the kids who happens to have a beautiful older sister. But when the Wang family livelihood is threatened by a rival ping pong player's attempt to lure the kids away, Chris begins to take things more seriously. With the National Golden Cock coming up and an injured Michael unable to defend his title, Chris must become the player he pretends to be and defend his family's ping pong dynasty. ~ schiggypiplup (YouTube) & Amazon
