For my high school friends.
Trailer for Ice Kacang Puppy Love, a Chinese-language Malaysian romance comedy. It’s the directorial debut for singer Ah Niu, who also stars in the movie. The cast also includes Angelica Lee, Gary Chaw, Fish Leong and Victor Wong etc. Most of the cast are better known as singers rather than actors though.
The teaser looks average at best to be frank. Some Malaysians may find comfort in some of the nostalgic little things but that’s probably it. Going to watch this in cinema regardless for the sake of supporting the local filmmakers but they really need to up their standard for long term prospect.
Not sure if it’s getting any overseas release. In cinemas in Malaysia on April 15.
Update – My two cents after watching this. The trailer shows many slapstick stuff but the main plot is about adolescent love. May be better if they make it in a more serious tone instead, not a fan of the childish jokes. Overall it’s decent by local standard, still a long way for this to be marketable overseas.
