Brian Lowry CNN.com Chang Can Dunk isn’t an all-star, but viewed that way it’s a nice wrinkle on an old story – the sort of calculated leap that, unlike Chang’s gamble, feels like a pretty good bet. Mar 11, 2023 Full Review Peter Debruge Variety “Chang Can Dunk” doesn’t go the way you’d expect, and that’s a good thing. Mar 10, 2023 Full Review Justin Chang Los Angeles Times “Chang Can Dunk” gets that the pursuit of fun, seemingly frivolous goals can be meaningful in itself, especially when undertaken with the loving encouragement of friends and family. Mar 10, 2023 Full Review Rachel Ho The Asian Cut The ensemble's rounded performances, and interesting themes elevates Chang Can Dunk into a delightful surprise — offering more than initially expected.

R C Enjoyed this one. Heartfelt mom and son journey. A testament to climbing an uphill battle and eventual redemption. And love the fact the major theme was not about being Asian. Very happy the acting was on point. I applaud Chang Can’t Dunk! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/18/24 Full Review Ayden Z Terrible.
