Going into this film, I personally didn't know what to expect. I wasn't really expect anything great, but what I found what a witty sense of humor that was constant throughout the entire film.

Among the 72 tenants staying in an old house, turned apartment complex, each tenant had a significant role in the film. Focussing on a large cast of characters, the "72 Tenants" was very reminiscent of old comedy sketches (filled with several substories, but each relating to a larger plot).

Following common Chinese values, this movie challenged viewers to stay together in all situations, while satirically mocking authority; encouraging viewers to question society morales.. not just to believe in what they're told, but go on personal judgement.
