MPOV: Phua Chu Kang The Movie


More than a decade after his yellows boots first kicked up big laughs on TV, Singapore's favourite contractor has finally made the big leap to the silver screen. Now based in Kuala Lumpur, Phua Chu Kang and wife Rosie get a visit from Kang's beloved Ah Ma. But even before she unpacks her luggage, Ah Ma disappears. What happened to her? Did she run away? Why? Or was she kidnapped? Kang's desperate search for Ah Ma leads him in an old folks home and its smarmy CEO, Lim Lau Pek, who offers Kang a lucrative contracting job. But first, he has to beat his arch nemesis, Frankie Foo, who is after the same job. Things take a surprising turn at the old folks home when Lim takes an amorous interest in Rosie, then Kang is accused of killing one of the elderly residents. Is Frankie behind this? What is Lim Lau Pek really up to? Kang finds out a secret about his distant past that Ah Ma has kept from him all these year, and he meets a relative he thought was long dead. Traumatised, Kang has to choose between business and family amid unexpected alliances.

Will our hero do the right thing?

Overall, it was a typical, usual comedy from PCK minus most of the usual casts. Honestly, the series was much better compared to this movie, probably because of the missing casts. It wasn’t as funny nor nothing out of the ordinary. Oh I stand corrected, it does have a moral behind the story which made it a good movie to watch with the family ^.^ Glad to have seen some familiar Malaysian faces in the movie too.

6 thumbs up out of 10
