A Monster Mash
9 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is so hard to explain this film verbally to someone. It is a sci-fi action comedy with music. It is literally all over the map. You can't say it doesn't have imagination, its just flat out off the wall. I had no idea what was coming next. The beautiful Cherie Chung is in it, and that is one reason to watch. She was some presence (she has presumably retired, she hasn't been in films in some time) and you will know that by the first scene she is in. She gets her shoes stuck on a grating and, like Marilyn Monroe, the dress goes up, but for much longer. This causes a major traffic pileup (not a surprise, she looks amazing in the scene and throughout the film). There are side stories here, but what it all boils down to is this is a film in which the writers used the kitchen sink approach. They put a Stars Wars type fight in it, put a little Triad action and even had Cherie being saved on the railroad tracks. Not a good film in the classic sense, its fine. Not to be confused with "Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Star". Much more of a guy film, especially since Cherie Chung is in it. Not a serious film, just expect mindless, somewhat imaginative entertainment and you'll get along just fine.
