Storyline

Kok Pin, Boon Hock and Terry are classmates in "EM3" stream. In Singapore, that means that at the age of 12, the government has decided that they are not as academically inclined as their peers. Kok Pin is creative and a born artist but his parents would rather he focus on his Maths and Sciences. Boon Hock comes from a low-income family and needs to balance school and helping out at the food stall. Terry, a spoilt brat is just too lazy a student. While the three children suffer from the pressure of school, their parents have another set of problems - their jobs and careers ... Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

Goofs

At one point, someone says that "Chinese New Year is coming soon" (the date of Chinese New Year varies, but it is always in January or February), but later Jerry Khoo receives a text message and says that "terrorists flew a plane into the tallest building in the US" (September 11, 2001). Since Chinese New Year occurs at the end of the movie, perhaps the filmmakers added the second line as a memorial to 9/11 but forgot that it was the wrong time of year in the movie. See more »

Crazy Credits

At the begining of the show, you will see Chinese words telling you to turn off your mobile phones and to applaud for the movie. At the end of the show, 3 of the cast will ask you to applaud for the movie See more »

Window into the Singaporean mind
9 July 2003 | by (Renton, WA USA) – See all my reviews

As another commented, "I Not Stupid" does have a TV movie oeuvre. It has slapsticky humor and comedy skit acting. But to this American, it gave me some insight into the psyche of the mind of the Singaporean, at least the ethnic Chinese.

Overall it is a funny movie. The best moment was the ad for the Chinese BBQ pork. Laugh out loud hilarious!
