Jack Neo has the last laugh

Despites hordes of critics and unfavourable media reviews, Jack Neo’s Chinese New Year flim “Ah Long Pte Ltd” garnered a whopping $1.47 million in ticketing revenues within the first three days of opening since the first day of Chinese New Year. His flim’s revenue bettered “Kungfu Hustle”, starring Jay Chou, which was released on the same day too. Singaporeans has again given Jack Neo a strong vote of confidence though personally I believe his latest flim was really ‘substandard’. Jack has initially wanted to ride on the notorious murder case of Huang Nan for the plot of his next flim as reported the year before, however, it was nixed due to widespread public outcry. I believe Jack finally modified his plot to one featuring Ah Longs.
