Trailer - 'Ping Pong Playa'

Sigh... *shaking my head*

The film is called Ping Pong Playa, emphasis on the word Playa, which is spelled just like that. Just watch the whole trailer to see and hear for yourself. And to think this is being released by the same company that recently picked up distribution rights to a film like Medicine For Melancholy. AND it was directed by Jessica Yu, the same filmmaker who brought us some really intriguing documentary pieces in Protagonist and In The Realms Of The Unreal. Films like this and The Wackness annoy me.

    The title is perfect. It tells you exactly what kind of movie this is.

    Wow Jessica Yu directed this? That's a surprise. I'm guessing it was a "paycheck" movie for her. Woman cannot live on documentaries alone.

    Albertine - does seem like a paycheck... but, who knows, maybe it's actually much better than it looks.

    Looking forward to the new movie Ping Pong Playa. It’s about a guy who wants to be a basketball star, but ends up teaching his mother’s ping pong classes after she gets into an accident. Jimmy Tsai looks hilarious as C-Dub! It opens in theaters September 5th. You can find a trailer for Ping Pong Playa here:
