Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: By our quote-unquote standards of contemporary comedy, it plays as uneven at best and often just flattens out for long jokeless stretches.

- Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, Monday, February 11, 2013

Rotten: Runs through its clichs reliably enough.

- Nicolas Rapold, New York Times, Sunday, February 10, 2013

Fresh: This film races with such high energy that the humor continues to satisfy, if only because the characters are so likeable.

- Omer Mozaffar, Chicago Sun-Times, Friday, February 8, 2013

I went on the premiere of this comedy (and waited until now to see the film listed on RT) of the director Xu Zheng and I have to admit that I'd never been in such full cinema in China. Usually half of the theatre is empty but this time there was no spare seat which resulted in our row collapsing at the end and we had to watch the remaining 10 minutes seating on the floor! The good thing is that nobody left and we all laughed big time until the closing credits. It was almost identical atmosphere from the last Xu Zheng and Wang Baoqiang project from 2010 "Lost on Journey". A crazy story of two colleagues from the same company trying to find their boss to sign a power of attorney for an international contract for a newly invented "super gas", started in China and followed in Thailand where most of the action was happening. A screenplay full of action and funny situations included a third character, confused onion cake maker who doesn't seem all there, trying to fulfil a list of dreams... while leaving his tour group to follow his new "friend" who is just using him. The trio Xu Zheng, Wang Baoqiang, and Huang Bo were perfectly cast and chemistry between them was so obvious that the atmosphere created had to be fun - no other result was possible. Be ready for laughs all around 105 minutes while watching this action filled Chinese comedy perfectly suited for any age (most of the time)... if you are watching the movie with elderly or youngsters maybe there is a need to explain the ladyboys in some of the scenes! Have fun!
