A film about immigrating to the 'States.
10 July 2005 | by Captain_CouthSee all my reviews

My Americanized Wife (1992) was a film starring Teresa Mo. She plays a mother who leaves for America with her young son hoping to establish residency so her husband can later move with them as well. The family experiences the usual "fish out of water" syndrome as they try to adjust to their new home. Teresa Mo carries this film with her unique charm. Her English is good and she's a real hoot. I wish she starred in more films. She's so underrated as an actor and comedian. Not only is she funny bit she's a real looker. Check her out in her best film The Magnificent Sconderals. A nice little film to rent if you can find a copy.
