One of the Better Chinese Comedies You'll See
30 August 2014 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I saw another review complaining about Chinese people in Thailand and it annoyed me enough that I felt like I should write a review that actually comments on the movie itself. So here goes:

I very much enjoyed this film! And although it's not going to win an Oscar, I can see why it was so big upon release. Also, it's about time China made something in response to all the Hollywood equivalents out there.

A rather predictable storyline, but the script and the acting will keep you entertained from the get-go. Even though the stories are not exactly similar, the feeling I get from this film is akin to that of "The Hangover" - absurd situations, disaster-moviesque and vivid cinematography.

The differences between "Lost in Thailand" and "The Hangover", is that LiT is far more family friendly, and far more emotionally involved. I do feel however, that many non-Chinese, especially Westerners, understandably enough, will not appreciate some of the more China- specific humour. Fortunately though this isn't enough of a factor to stop anyone enjoying it. In fact, if you're willing you might learn something new.

Sure, the script and the acting on more than one occasion could be more subtle and artistic, but that's not what this movie is about. It's pure entertainment and if you go into it with your brain switched off and your heart switched on, you won't be disappointed :D
