IMDb

Synopsis

Times are tough for Raymond and Tina Cheng. Their father has returned to Hong Kong, and their mother Elaine can no longer afford the mortgage payments for their suburban Boston home. Forced out of their house, the Chengs move into a model home, where they can live rent-free as long as they remain undetected. The children spend their days quietly holed up in the house, waiting for their overworked mother to return with dinner. When Elaine gets unwittingly caught up in a pyramid scheme targeting downtrodden immigrants, the kids are forced to take matters into their own hands.

I wasn't impressed by Michael Chens' performance. The rest of the cast was excellent.

I have seen a couple of movies lately with comparable themes: Illégal (Belgium) and Crossing borders (Spain, Switzerland). Children of invention tells a very believable story of an oriental lady with her two charming kids.
