T-STYLE9'S REVIEW: Ah, the long awaited film for whoever that wanted to see some celebrity tits. To make it more clear for those who aren't familiar of this film, three words: Christy Chung's Tits. Before watching this film, I haven't read any review for this and had no expectations at all which is not needed if all I intended to see was some tits. For those who are pondering weather this big fuss about Christy tits is just a quick half a second glimpse or not since that's what I assumed, well it ain't. Intercourse, intercourse and some more intercourse. Lets just say, it was a good amount of screen time for them titties. I hope that wasn't a spoiler. A spoiler would be telling someone about a porno that the guy didn't climax in the climax which would be a funny climax.
Let me set aside all my nasty thoughts of this movie and stop being a pervert. No, I can't. The whole movie was about sex. This is the American Pie of Thailand. But of course, with a deeper story and better acting. The movie is about a kid name Jan. His father has this never ending hatred toward Jan due to his mothers death right after Jan's birth which leads to the dads theory that he's a curse, a burden of the family or something. The majority of the movie shows how Jan deals with his dad and at the same time, enjoying a shitload of sex when the new neighbor comes along played by actress Christy Chung. A coming of age sex drama that you shouldn't watch with yo mama.
Even without Christy's appearance straight after the title appears, the movie still hold my interest for quite some time. Maybe cuz it's rare seeing a 5 year old watching his dad fuck as a credit opener. Maybe I'm just a sick fuck that's into sick shit. Sadly, even with all the fucking here and there, three-fourths into the movie gets quite pointless but tolerable which works it way into a disappointing ending. Disappointing endings don't always necessarily mean a bad movie though.
Without Christy Chung, this movie would have no selling point. It would have been just something softcore outta the porn section on the shelf, watching some old dude fuck his endless troops of Thai maids. Watching the old dude's son fuck Thai maids. Watching old dude son's friend fuck Thai maids. Oh? What's this?! Christy Chung getting banged? Yeah, there ya go.
T-STYLE9'S RATING: 6.5/10
