a cute trip for an asian movie
7 June 2003 | by (manila, philippines) – See all my reviews

You can't expect too much from a low-budget asian film. But with that said, it was actually a good film as compared to other low budget asian films. The ever ubiquitous Kris Aquino spearheads this campy film along with relatively unknown chinese actors. Kris makes good of what little the movie offers by delivering a believable and squeaky-clean performance as a heartbroken ex dog-owner. When her dog Magic, gets reincarnated into a man by a Happy Ghost (God forgive the writers), her life turns into a love triangle with her new boyfriend getting fussy with the fully reincarnated Magic. But Magic has only 44 days as a human before he gets reincarnated into another fur ball. Will he be able to say what lies in his heart to his owner? bleh... All in all, the movie gave the viewers what they wanted. A fun, light-headed comedy without being pretentious. Maybe Matrix Reloaded can learn something from this.
