it is not that funny at all.
8 February 2013 | by (China) – See all my reviews

i see that there is only one review, so i thought that i would contribute.

maybe they had low budget that is why the picture quality is very bad, i watched it on DVD, everything is so blurry.

some the acting was good, especially the female maid in the hotel. This film didn't make me laugh at all, i was busy reading the English subtitles. it is more like a drama than a comedy.

it would be a better film if the picture quality wasn't so bad. it is always fun to see films about people living in other countries, to learn about their life, problems, etc.
