      Audience Member what kind of crap movie is that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member The first 50 minutes are good, you can enjoy the movie very well, even the unrealistic and exaggerated plot. What its good in other movies of Lau, the pointless sense of humor and jokes, the mix of semi mythical plot in a different context in this film feels so wrong and uneasy. Over the end you cant give much about the special effects, and the exaggeration of the sequence of the pool make you lose the previous attention of the movie. The best of the film the acting of Gillian Chung and Eva Huang. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Funnier that I expected, but didn't feel very good near the end. It's sort of the wacky HK humor, but it throws away some morals that I thought most asians have.. [On plane from Sydney] Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member To be honest, this is not that bad. It got some funny moments, good lines, and a bunch of nice side characters. However, the CG is terrible. And worst of all, the poster and how it marketed the film are the 2 major reasons that made it became a box-office flop. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Too soon & too weak this attempt to breathe life into Gillian's career... Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Jeffrey Lau's <i>The Fantastic Water Babes</i> is a deceiving sport comedy. Why? It does have the babes, it does have the water, but it is nowhere near fantastic.<p>The first act comes out running with a frantic pace and a wacky style to top it all off; however the film tends to lose itself with the consistent antics the characters put themselves through, which makes the film more odd than funny.</p><p>In the middle, <i>The Fantastic Water Babes</i> finds itself missing a bunch of its comical style while becoming more melodramatic with a story that has less and less resemblance to its title.</p><p>Fortunately, the final act picks up where the introduction left off and most of it comes with some good humor and quick pacing. The grand finale does lose some ground when it overdoes it with the CG though.</p><p>Gillian Chung does amuse in the early going, but she loses her spark by the end of the film. Lik-Sun Fong only matches for the dramatic parts, which are hardly entertaining. The more enjoyable characters belong to supporting actors Eva Huang and Stephen Fung. Stephen Fung is really something.</p><p>Ultimately, <i>The Fantastic Water Babes</i> isn't all it's cracked up to be and the few laughs aren't worth the price of admission.</p> Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews
