Tiger Woo Hoo ( 大日子 )

I don't really like to watch Chinese Comedies in Cinemas, but, after hearing all the buzz about, Tiger Woo Hoo ( 大日子 ) and after a few times trying to buy the tickets but every time its' "SOLD OUT"...All i can say is that the wait is definitely not in vain.

Warning - Spoilers ahead....Here's a short movie plot


"Woohoo' (tiger dance) is a tradition practiced in a small village (Beserah, Kuantan) during a prayer ceremony every 60 years. As the only elder who knows "Woohoo" can no longer perform, his filial granddaughter put up a misleading advertisement which in turn attracts five youngsters from different backgrounds - bad-tempered bank security man Ah Beng, indecisive Char Kuey Teow hawker Ah Huat, effeminate designer Rain, university student Bobby and smart alec Alan - to be trained as 'woohoo' players. After some tough training, they finally look like a formidable team. However, few days before the anticipated festival day, the only 'tiger head"'is accidentally destroyed by the mischievous kids in the village.,"




The movie trailer




The Theme Song - A very Chinese New Year-feel ler...

The movie is quite funny, hilarious too. Most of the cast are from Astro & MyFM DJs. Almost every single chinese dialect are used perfectly in it.  There are also some sentimental moments that made me go in tears too. Really....! Here are some of the screen captures.





Of cuz, my favorite character is Roy-ce Tan (  陈志康 -- i prefer to pronounce it as Roy-see instead of Royce, haha..cute ma ) as the effeminate designer, Rain. I have always wanted to blog about him in my "Is He One Of Us?" segment. Haha. I've seen him before live as a host and i know he likes "Groovin' underwear as well! Haha. But in that movie, his effeminate antics was definitely over-the-top and i like the way he poses for the camera shots in tha movie too. It was so--GAY. Hahaha....

In conclusion, credits should be given to our Malaysian cinema for being very creative. This movie is definitely one of the Best Chinese-Malaysian movie ever ( Sometimes, it's nice to watch a nonsensical movie without expecting to much ). Please..Do watch it before the onslaught of Chinese New Year movies that is due to hit our cinemas in a week time.

With that, just as Royce Tan likes to say in that movie..."CAAANTIK SEKALI!" - Muacks Fr Simon!
