Hilarious and ingenious
21 January 2015 | by tenochtilanSee all my reviews

That's Cunning was, as the title suggests, incredibly cunning. In the movie occupants of a dorm are threatened with expulsion unless they score perfect grades on their upcoming exams. In terms of humour, ingenuity, and interest this movie was amazing, at least from a student's perspective. It's an older film, but its jokes and the plight of the main characters doesn't fail to give rise to sympathy and laughter, coming from someone who's going through his own exams right now. Really recommend the movie for anyone who likes a classic comedy that's extremely enjoyable despite a few predictable twists.. As with all movies there are things that could be improved but I judge a comedy by the humour and positive emotions it makes you feel, which I definitely felt and enjoyed.

I was pleasantly surprised by an Asian comedy as this is only the second Asian production I've ever watched.
