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, spun around "out of control," and then thrown into a waterway. 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 »

Pretty Funny - Similar to Crazy Stone and Crazy (Bicycle) Race
11 February 2019 | by heath-jeffreySee all my reviews

I found Crazy Stone to be pretty funny and Crazy Bicycle Race to be hilarious. This was somewhere between the two.

If you go to watch it expecting a bit of ridiculousness and fun, you'll get what you expected. There's some decent witty humour hidden here and there throughout and a double dose of visual and other more obvious humour.

A highlight that will often be overlooked is how a few key features played double-work in plot development and humour. In particular: * The special effects used with the alien character make it seem quite natural (not cartoon-ish nor 'Dr Who' costume-ish, but realistic) and importantly its human-like facial features are central to plot and laughter. * Similarly, the location, a theme park of famous monuments and buildings from all around the world, is central to plot and laughter.

Expect to feel sympathetic both for the alien and the pair of guys stuck with him, because both are going to suffer hilariously!
