CJ7 is the latest comedy feature from director and star Stephen Chow following his worldwide hit, “Kung Fu Hustle.” “Kung Fu Hustle,” the second highest grossing film in Hong Kong history after “Titanic”, was nominated for a Golden Globe, and won a total of 5 awards, including Best Film and Best Director, at Asia’s equivalent of the Oscars, the Golden Horse Awards. CJ7 marks the second collaboration between Sony Pictures Entertainment and Chow’s Star Overseas, following “Kung Fu Hustle”.Featuring the trademark Chow slapstick humor, CJ7 is a comedy about a poor laborer father, Ti, played by Stephen Chow, and his young son, Dicky. When a fascinating and strange new pet enters their lives, Dicky, an elementary school student, sees a chance to overcome his poor background and shabby clothes and impress his fellow students for the first time in his life. The “pet” however has other ideas and when Dicky brings it to class, comedic chaos erupts including a showdown with the terrifying school bully, Storm Dragon!Chow’s inspiration for the story started over twenty years ago when as a young man he saw Steven Spielberg’s “E.T.” at the theatre. “I went back to see “E.T.” over and over again,” Stephen Chow reveals, “and was amazed that science fiction could be filmed like this! I knew then that I wanted to make a movie like that. Steven Spielberg’s work inspired me to become a director.” Always an original, Chow admits that CJ7 is a slight departure from his previous comedies: “This type of story is new to Chinese movies but I hope audiences will like it.”

Not the best, but certainly not the worst
It is a bit different from other Stephen Chow's movies. I like Kungfu Hustle better. But CJ7 is certainly quite entertaining. I would recommend it to Stephen Cow's fans

An excellent Stephen Chow production
Stephen Chow is a renowned comedian in Asia and CJ7 show that he still has the charm. I was expecting that Stephen would have runned out of jokes after so many releases, yet CJ7 has given me much surprises.

Besides the comicalness that exist in most of his works,
the elements of family values potrayed through CJ7 was what made this story different. Funny, yet touching and memorable. The story is indeed an unique emotional formula.

Don't miss out on the works of one of the world's most successful comedian. Even though this movie deserves the praises, I'm giving this a 4 out of 5 stars since there are better Stephen Chow movies out there such as Shaolin Soccer. CJ7 felt kind of short too, and it would have been better if the movie was longer.

erm... how on earth can you rate this film at 5/5? the storyline is weak, the acting is poor and the CGI is mediocre.
chow used to be good back in the good old days, this film is just a poor attempt using the same o storyline and pointless CGI effects.

1/5 max!

Stephen Chow does it again!
This man is a genius and a great actor / director, he is definately one to watch in the future and im sure he will break it big in the US too!

Now about the film, im not going to spoil the film and tell you what ahppens but all im going to say is thats its BRILLIANT! from start to finish it gets you hooked in, its very funny in the right places and heartwarming too, you must see this film!!

I bought the blu ray from playasia.com and the picture is excellent in high definition but just a shame there is no special features.

Overall 5/5
