Did You Know?


Actors reportedly recorded their lines in their original language (Cantonese or Mandarin) in this HK/China co-production, and separate language versions were released in HK (Cantonese) and China (Mandarin). Thus the Cantonese lines were dubbed to Mandarin for China, and vice versa. See more »

[first lines]
Dicky: Good morning, sir.
Mr. Cao: Dicky Chow! Just look at yourself. You're covered in dirt.
Dicky: [stepping forward] I just...
Mr. Cao: [stepping back] Don't move. And don't give me the usual routine. Why are you always so untidy?
Miss Yuen: What's the matter, Mr. Cao?
Mr. Cao: [to Dicky] Explain yourself!
Miss Yuen: Let me talk to him. Where did the dirt come from, Dicky?
Dicky: Well, on my way to school, I slipped and fell over.
Miss Yuen: Don't your mom or dad bring you to school?

Great movie
26 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

Once again, Stephen Chow delivers a movie which is both funny and clever.

From the acting which is amazing (the young actor is incredible) to the special effects which are by far some of the best I've seen recently.

The movie's funny when it comes to the situations which are sometimes just unbelievable but it is also very kind and tender when it shows the relationships between father and son.

This movie can be seen by children or parents and you will all fall in love with CJ7.

It is well worth a trip to the theater (if it's released where you are) or to a shop near you . I'll buy it right away when it gets released on DVD.

Good job, Mr Chow !
