A Happy Ghost Sequel.
28 January 2015 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is a comedy fantasy movie from Hong Kong, the first sequel to The Happy Ghost, where the ghost of Scholar Stewart Pik has since reincarnated and is now high school teacher Hong Sam Kwai (Raymond Wong). He is the first male instructor of the rowdy all-female class, who plays endless pranks on him. As a result, he counteracts with his gift of magical powers. But, when his job is on the line, he must find a way to get through with his students and restore his reputation.

Like its prequel, this film is one of my favorite Hong Kong movies from my childhood, capturing the innocence and care-freeness like in the first movie and also brings you harmless fun and adventures, from Kwai using his powers to help his students in a water sports competition to Kwai trying to court the lady professor at the boys' college next door. It is funny seeing the pranks the girls play on the professor, but captivating to see the consequences they girls had to face as a result of all their negative behavior.

Clifton Ko did a nice job directing the movie, keeping the plot intriguing and full of zest - even more than the previous movie. The cast of characters all gave a heartfelt and terrific performance in their respective roles. Raymond Wong did great as Kwai. And, Fennie Yuen, May Lo, Charine Chan and Akina Fu, all stars introduced to the screen in this movie, did a good job portraying the girl group, each giving off unique personalities for them: Fennie as the tough-talking Thai Chek-Yee, May Lo as the bespectacled May Kan, Charine Chan as the goody-two-shoes Yiu-King and Gigi Fu as the fashionable Akina.

It is an uplifting movie, but with a touch of ghost horror - a perfect little innocent movie for the entire family. I remember I used to watch this film with my cousins in our younger days, even bringing it with us to watch on a family trip at one time. As a result, it is a very nostalgic movie to this day.

Grade A
