Fakin' da Funk is a 1997 comedy film starring Pam Grier and Dante Basco about a Chinese son adopted by black parents who relocates to South Central Los Angeles. A second story involves Mai-Ling, an exchange student played by Margaret Cho, who by another twist, gets sent to the wrong 'hood'. The film was written and directed by Tim Chey.



Variety called the film "an energetic, highly likable comedy".[1]
