Directors Da-Mo Peng and Fei Yan put China back on the comedy world map with work on "Goodbye Mr. Loser".
"Goodbye Mr. Loser" (aka "Xia Luo te fan nao") starts out in a very hilarious way. At a wedding, Xia Luo (played by Teng Shen) gets drunk and get the brilliant idea of singing a love song to his high school crush Qiuya (played by Zhi Wang), whom is getting married to someone else. This love song does not go well with Xia Lou's wife Ma Dong Mei (played by Li Ma). Xia Luo hides in the bathroom, but when he comes back out from hiding, he finds himself back in his glorious high school days. Has he been given a second chance to do things over, or is it a chance to relive his former prime? From there on the movie just keeps up its established hilarious atmosphere and keeps adding on to that. And writers and directors Da-Mo Peng and Fei Yan really deserve a big, big thumbs up on their accomplishment with "Goodbye Mr. Loser".
There are so many funny moments throughout the course of this movie, and I found myself laughing hard so many times. I was thoroughly enjoying myself throughout the course of this movie, and I really liked the storyline.
Furthermore, the characters in the movie were so well-rounded and detailed and unique. The characters in "Goodbye Mr. Loser" are colorful, memorable and outstanding, really adding a lot of flavor to the storyline.
The cast list had some great talents to it, and people were doing really good jobs in bringing their characters to life on the screen as they performed in "Goodbye Mr. Loser".
If you enjoy Asian cinema and comedies, then you should definitely take the chance to watch "Goodbye Mr. Loser" if you have the chance, because this is a memorable and entertaining movie.
