A Total Hoot!
2 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

Kept me laughing throughout! Starts off a little slow so I didn't really pay attention, however it picked up the pace and kept me thoroughly entertained. A great retro flick. Even though I'm a child of the 90's, looking at the retro settings, listening to the old music and observing the fashion of the time made me feel somewhat nostalgic. I wish cinema now was as classy as in the past, cracking jokes without the need for vulgarity. Sexy scenes can also be done tastefully as they are here without being crass! Try it out if you like silly flicks like the classic "A Chinese Ghost Story". I myself love silly, fun ghost/ghoul-themed movies that aren't actually scary such as Beetlejuice so this was perfect for me. The last thing I would like to say is that I found the effects pretty remarkable for a film 30 years old! In Singapore, I would say even the very recent Jack Neo movie "Where Got Ghost" and other ghost movies lack such well done effects and innovative gags. Without spoiling anything, I was very impressed by their visual effects.

Please give this movie a shot if you want a light, fun film.
