Ten Brothers

Summary: Gross

Had I not been watching this with a group, I'd have happily fast-forwarded through the really gross parts. The excuse for this is that the ten brothers (including some sisters) have just been born (five of them from the father, in a scene which is truly hilarious) in full adult form but not yet adjusted to human manners.

Each brother/sister has a particular talent (e.g. wonder ears, wonder eyes, sister tears), which they try to employ against evil mandarin Tsui Kam Kong who, having grown tired of his current and still lovely harem, instructs his head guard to have fun with them then throw them off the nearest cliff.

Wavers uneasily between good and really terrible. In some places it's hard to know whether to laugh or throw up, but mostly there's no doubt ! Lots of stupid (and unfunny) little kid type jokes about shit and pissing. Why on earth did they feel they had to include the "shit stance" ?! You have been warned........

Gambling addict Chan Ta Ha and his wife Wai Leung inherit farmlandcontaining a magic bracelet from the gods. The bracelet spawns ten brothers, each with a special power. Evil general Wu wants the use the kids for his own betterment. A light comedy, where the gags come fast. There are enough hits to make it fun to watch, and the misses are merely unfunny. A solid production, but never anything more than mind candy.
