A Smart and Sexy Comedy
25 November 2007 | by oni_surSee all my reviews

It has been a while for Indonesian audience to enjoy this kind of movie, a sexually-packed-comedy, since the dynamic trio Warkop DKI's movies. No wonder that the director of this movie said that this movie is a tribute to Warkop. And following the Warkop tradition, spiced up with a good and intelligent script, you have a guarantee of a full ride of laughter along the movie.

Overall, sex is the main theme of this movie; it's a movie about gigolo. Some will think that it resembles Deuce Bigalow Male Gigolo, with Indonesian style. In my opinion, they are quite different, since they have different tone as well as story line. And for most Indonesian viewer, this film is one of the most sexually explicit movies, so please keep it out of reach from children.

The weak part of this movie, if I have to mention one, is that it is kind of losing momentum in the middle, which has been build up superbly by the trio since the beginning of the movie. The script concentrates to much on building the story rather than maintaining the laugh. Maybe it is indeed a difficult choice for the writer to pick whether to entertain the audience further and risking to lose the story line.

I personally give my credit to Lukman Sardi, he succeeded again. I think he is one of the most promising actors, among the young actors in Indonesia.

Just like the title of this movie; it's a quickie. Just enjoy it. I came, I watched and laughed, I went home. It doesn't need to be digested further and inspire you. So, just enjoy it, and you won't be disappointed.
