Quotes

[first lines]
Dicky: Good morning, sir.
Mr. Cao: Dicky Chow! Just look at yourself. You're covered in dirt.
Dicky: [stepping forward] I just...
Mr. Cao: [stepping back] Don't move. And don't give me the usual routine. Why are you always so untidy?
Miss Yuen: What's the matter, Mr. Cao?
Mr. Cao: [to Dicky] Explain yourself!
Miss Yuen: Let me talk to him. Where did the dirt come from, Dicky?

A great film for kids and their parents!
5 May 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Let me start by saying that this film isn't in English so make sure you watch a version dubbed into English if you happen to be watching with children.

Im 41 years old yet this film provoked me into both laughing out aloud and softly shedding a tear or two. It certainly hits the mark. Don't expect anything too sophisticated - this is a simple story told through the eyes of a child.

All of the acting is competent and Jiao Xu steals every scene he's in. CJ7 is adorable and I can only image there will be a soft toy/animatronic on the Asian market by the time you read this.

Well worth the 90mins of your life! 10/10
