In Singapore, the film was originally passed with an R21 classification due to the film's sexual content and nudity. However the distributors were unsatisfied with this rating and opted to re-edit the film in order to obtain the more commercially lucrative M18 rating; the aforementioned cut removes a brief, close-up depiction of a hand squeezing a man's scrotum, as part of a couple's act of foreplay.

This movie was a good, generic crude slapstick comedy for about an hour, but ran out of jokes and fell painfully flat at the end. Sacrificed comedy and screenwriting to push a political message for nearly a third of the movie. Tried to be inspiring instead of funny, and just turned out to be annoying. Don't pay money to watch this. Watch once it's out on DVD if you're bored and easily amused.
