Storyline

Kung Fu meets disco in Singapore. Hock is a grocery clerk longing for a motorbike. He lives with his parents and sister; they idolize his younger brother, Beng, a medical student calling himself Leslie. Hock loves Bruce Lee; he works out and imitates his moves. When Hock sees a cheesy local version of "Saturday Night Fever," he gets the disco bug, taking his pal Mei to nightly lessons in hopes of winning a contest and buying the bike. He's blind to Mei's falling in love with him, and, at the last minute asks another woman to be his partner in the contest. Meanwhile, Beng reveals a personal secret to his family and a crisis ensues. Hock, Beng, Mei and her rival: it's Night Fever. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

That's the way...uh-huh, un-huh...
15 February 2004 | by George ParkerSee all my reviews

"That's the Way I Like It" is a flick which would never work on paper but manages to be thoroughly enjoyable on the silver screen. It's all about Hock (Pang), a Singapore store clerk who wants no more than to kick butt like Bruce Lee and own a motorcycle but meets a disco dancing hottie who convinces him there are better things to get into than motorbikes. Always fun, upbeat, and good natured, this little English language flick out of Singapore is a kind of "Enter the Dragon" meets "Saturday Night Fever" meets "All in the Family" colorful comedy drenched in nostalgic hit disco tunes. Fun stuff especially for anyone who has ever done the Hustle. (B)
