It is a local production with lots of local stars such as Ah Niu, Angelica Lee Sin Jie, Gary Chaw, Victor Wong and Fish Leong as the main actors/actress. There are also some big names like Nicholas Teo and Penny Tai who appear for less than 10 seconds. The movie has been localized by local culture, dialects, popular locally used words, jokes etc. The movie is quite average on the whole. However, a few scenes are really out of expectation whether it is about the acting or the story line behind. It really create an impact on the feeling of the audiences such as we can feel the family bonding, friendship, love etc and the ability to raise a few question for us to think about (such as why two people who love each other but don’t have the courage to voice it out). On the acting part, I hardly believe in the beginning of the movie that a lady is willing to expose her upper under-garment. It might be common for Hong Kong, European, American etc movies, but I don’t expect it to be in Malaysia production. Even in the movie of Tiger WooHoo, they don’t even have a kissing scene. That is the part where surprised me the most at the beginning of the film. And also the scene where Gary Chaw lays on the grass land and Angelica on top of him (you need to watch it to understand this scene). Plus the kissing scene between Ah Niu and Angelica (for about 5-10 seconds I guess).

Generally for me, it is an average film and I will give a 5 in a range of 1 to 10. I personally feel that the movie is not that excellent wholesomely, but it does manage to show some really excellent and unexpected scene. Localisation of the movie makes it interesting among Malaysian Chinese. The story line is not bad too. However, the quality of this movie still can’t be on the same par as Jack Neo’s movies as those movies really show satisfactory level in the whole movie while in this local production, only the few parts of the movie that carry the whole film onwards. Certain part of the movie is a bit boring too. Anyhow, it is a good attempt and feel quite satisfy with that movie. It is worth to recommend it to the others as well. Good luck and congratulations on this local production...
