Jack Neo continues to bring up issues on Singaporean neglecting Mandarin and the society's perception towards students not performing well (or those already performing well but 'can do better'). Surprisingly, Jack finishes some issues on sex education with a promising sense of humour. However, I feel that some of those parts can be compacted , or shortened, to further expose the main theme of this movie. While the approach of communicating parents negligence towards their children with lack of sex education is undeniably innovative, too many issues (i.e. gangsterism, pick-pocketing etc) overall spoils the flavour of the ingredients. However, I would like to dedicate a bonus of 3 points to this movie as it truthfully tells how bored and 'lame' parents can be when 'educating' their children. Parents not becoming role models are indeed the major problem for child delinquency. Generation gap also cleverly dealt with in this movie. We look forward to your next movie, and in the meantime keep up the good work in reigniting the passion for Mandarin among Singaporeans.
