Treasure Inn (财神客栈) (2011)

Treasure Inn is filled with silly scenes, crass jokes, misfiring punchlines, and non sequiturs and feels like the Wayan Brothers just made a Kung Fu Movie.

It's typical Wong "Do it for the money and forget you ever did it" Jing fare.

Read my full review at Fridae, first published on 22 June 2011.

Reviewer's note: Despite all that, the state-sponsored "Screen Singapore" film festival chose this as its opening film. This wasn't the worst move they made, actually. Looking back from 2013, we're not surprised at how the festival/film market blew up in the organiser's faces, got downsized into a side-event in 2012, and will probably die out by 2015.
