Green Card Fever paints a realistic picture at what some immigrants will go through to stay in the good ol' USofA. While somewhat of a comedy, it is depressing and at times because the main character is a likeable, decent guy who is being taken advantage of by a crooked lawyer and a sleaze-bag work placement agent. The story delves between his problems obtaining a green card, his slowly blossoming romance with an angry Indian-American girl, and a Sikh lawyer who is reluctant to help immigrants referred to him by his do-gooder grandfather. The movie is touching, the characters are cute where they're suppose to be, and we are exposed to the vast world of inhuman scum that preys on hapless immigrants. However, this movie is plagued with terrible acting at almost every corner. The main character and his love interest are not bad, but the supporting players must have been chosen from an extras agency to fill the roles. The Chinese lawyer and the American judge act like weekly guests on The Littlest Hobo, leading me to incorrectly believe that this was a Canadian movie.
