What an embarrassing Chinese farce
30 November 2015 | by BasicLogicSee all my reviews

This film is just so embarrassing to watch. It seems that after Stephen Chow's "Clueless" genre that almost ruined the Hong Kong movie industries, Zheng Xu, a guy who inherited the similar ingredients from Mr. Chow, is trying so hard to ruin the Chinese Mainland China's movie industries again. Yes, both guys at first have glorified the box office everywhere in the Chinese territories, but it's not a good thing to see Xu to further ridicule the Chinese viewers' standard to an even lower level. What a series of farces he did to the Chinese film trend. Now, lot of the copycatting wannabes are trying to overdo what he did, making the movies, the screenplays, the scenarios, the plots and acting more and more ridiculously stupid and awkward to watch. All the unrealistic, exaggerated, pretentious, clown-jerk like performances in these kind of movies, they call "acting". All the stupid scenarios and plots of what Mr.Xu crazily and illogically put together in his recent films, people deemed them as genius or ingeniously crafted. But once this kind of screenplay and its genre become a formatted formula, farce would take place, the definition of "Comedy" would be interpreted and equal with "Farce". There will be no way back to normal, the fine line that define "comedy", "thriller", "drama", "action" would be all confined into one narrow definition: "FARCE". Then the doomsday of the Chinese movie industries will come. Movie viewers' taste would be totally ruined and lowered to a limbo that only low I.Q. mature morons or immature teen-ages would and could keep the loyalty of such farce.

Why "farce" would ruin everything? Because you can put every stupid scenario, plot, story in a screenplay, no matter how ridiculous and how illogical it might be, and all the exaggerated, unnatural performances of those actors who signed up doing it will be accepted as "good and talented" ACTING. As long as you could make those retarded viewers laugh uncontrollably, the movie would be rated "good" and "fun to watch", but actually they are just short lived mess on the screen.

The Chinese movie people are anxious to show to the westerners how they are also understanding what "Humor" means, they desperately want to show those non-Chinese movie viewers how they understand the "Sense of Humor". But by doing so, only shows their misunderstanding and their shallowness almost to anything and everything.

Please, Mr. Xu, don't do this kinda crap again and again. There are ways to achieve great Box Office record and to make the money, but this definitely not one of them.
