It’s the story of a Chinese laborer and how life changes when a strange new pet enters his son’s life. I watched the trailer with a WTF look on my face but I did laugh, even if I couldn’t figure out what on earth was going on. Apparently, we’re in for more of Chow’s unique brand of slapstick comedy. I had fun with both Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle so yeah, count me on board for more wacky fun.
According to the official website, the film is scheduled to open on January 11th in North America but I didn’t see it on any of the release schedules so I’m guessing this is a pretty quiet release. You may want to keep an eye out for it at your local arthouse/rep theater.
Thanks to our friends over at Band of Outsiders for the heads up on the trailer.
