Trivia

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 »

Quotes

[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?

Wow!
5 April 2008 | by imdb1See all my reviews

This is a very good movie. I have laughed out loud and cried real tears, and that doesn't happen often! There are elements in the movie like in Shaolin Soccer, and it has some of Gremlins. Not everything that happens is possible (like in Shaolin Soccer), but that doesn't disturb the slightest, on the contrary, it's very funny. The young boy is a very good actor; amazingly so (he appears to be at most 10 years old). If anything is wrong with movie then it's that it's too short. I wish it was twice as long! I can highly recommend to watch this with children, but don't let them watch alone, as it contains a very sad scene that might need some hugging to get through.
