      Audience Member Decent family dramedy. Similar to Click, except it's a brat that makes a deal with the devil. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Life is just a course, unfortunately, you can't restart it, but happily, you don't need to restart it.

Though the main character has a good arc and he certainly matures a lot from the beginning, I wasn't all that entertained by the movie. It has identity issues and it's way too manipulative. The dramatic aspects of the movie are just terrible. They'll have an actor crying his guts out and then on top of that, they play the sad music score extra loud to make sure that they want you to feel sad. It's just terrible, it's grabbing at straws to manipulate you and it just doesn't work. At least for me. I never had any real connection to any of the characters. It also tries to be way too whimsical and cutesy for my tastes. One good thing about the movie is that it's unlike Hollywood, in that he never finds a quick and convenient way to turn back into a child, so the end is really far more effective than it probably would have been otherwise. And Andy Lau is charming in his role. If it weren't for him, I'd probably have given this a lower rating. It's not a terrible movie, it's just terribly below average Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Preposterous in the 1st half; hardcore preaching in the 2nd half. < Big >, < Big Fish > wannabe, gotta polish the lame screenplay in the very first place, please. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Yes, filmmakers love the notion of a child inhabiting the body of an adult. This take on it is interesting because of it's Asian perspective and it's foregoing of the broad humor that typically accompanies this sort of film. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member it is touching , and i nearly cry out. is kind of tell a story of life.
