Trivia

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) released a video by an on-set whistleblower on March 19, 2018, which showed the dog in a cage being lifted by a crane, and thrown into a waterway multiple times. But later it was shown that the video was deliberately edited to mislead the viewer thinking it was an animal abuse. After the PETA video event, director Ning Hao decided to delete that scene from the final film to show the respect, that dog on the set was later adopted by Ning Hao himself. See more »

Very Funny - If you know some Chinese culture
10 March 2019 | by jngyzhSee all my reviews

I would say this is funnier than Ning Hao's previous movies, i.e., Crazy Stone series. However, there are some Chinese culture elements that are essential to understand the joy.

You will notice there are a lot things about alcohol, which is a very important culture element. For instance, drinking high degree alcohol is a way to bring people closer in a dinner table, and these alcohols are very popular in China. No wonder people want to sell them to aliens!

In the late half of the movie, the alien is angry and made a mess in the theme park. This is paying a tribute to the most famous fairy tale character, the monkey king, who has made a mess in the royal palace in the heaven.

For Chinese watching CCTV's Spring Festival, you will hear the famous theme Nan Wang Jing Xiao, reminding you that this is on stage for Spring Festival holidays.

For western viewers, you guys probably only understand the theme song from 2001: A Space Odyssey. You are really missing a lot of the culture funs in the movie.

Finally, I find the most powerful nation "ArmarNika" (sounds close) pretty funny.
