Some people said that the kid is just spoiled and so the movie is crap. Well, those people missed the point. Movie is not about kid per se, try to think more broadly. That being said, the movie is fun and cheesy and touching. One of the best movies I've seen in a while.

However, be forwarned-parents, there are a few scenes that you might want to see first before letting your kids watch that involve..um, how can we say this...poo. They're not that offensive, mind you. In fact, they are downright funny. Yet, in all fairness, you might want to scope the scenes out before letting them watch. Chow's movies, as you may have seen before with Kung Fu Hustle, are not immediately for everyone.

CJ7 is, literally, the star of the movie. He's Asian's version of ET. Again, I highly recommend this movie to all. It's an endearing tale that families will love for years to come.
It would be easy to say too much about this charming movie's plot, especially if you've seen *Batteries Not Included. I leave it to you to watch this self-consciously cute story unfold, all the way to the smiles-all-around ending. The movie's style seems heavy handed, by western standards. Acting and character stereotypes come across as blunt instruments, and the "flying warriors" idiom makes an improbable appearance in the schoolyard. A few things might grate on Western sensibilities, too, like what constitutes good parenting - although generally kid safe, a few scenes might not work for very young or very skittish children. If you can take it in its own terms and ignore a bit of saccharine, you'll find some charming fun in this one.
if you like any of stephen chow's other movies (shaolin soccer, kung foo hustle) you will like this one as well. some of the same actors, the same goofy style of acting and over the top theatrics. but this time there is an alien and a nice story. think of a chinese version of E.T. sort of. the part of the little boy in the movie is actually played by a girl and she does a great job.
do yourself a favor and at least rent it, it shouldn't be missed (besides its only 87 minutes long). when i went to the theater, there were only 6 other people in there with me. it really deserved better publicity than it got.
by far it was the best movie the first 6 months of this year until the summer blockbusters started coming out.
I'll say from the start that I am biased. I have seen a number of Stephen Chow's films (including the boring Justic Is My Foot). I am a fan. I find his humor a combination of wit and slapstick. There is a strong level of intelligence and appreciatiation for the absurd (think Looney Tunes).
While Stephen Chow is known for his slapstick adult humor, it was less surprising to me that HE had made a childrens' film than to hear that Takashi Miike had made a children's film ("The Great Yokai War"). None the less, I was skeptical. Could Stephen Chow transcend the greatest folly of childrens' films? The greatest folly is, of course, the over-simplifying of the world to a point where it has no relevance in reality, except as a delusional acid trip. Adults of all kinds tend to fall into the chasm of under-estimation. They all think that children can not handle the real world. While I agree that some things are worth waiting to tell a child until she/he has matured, other things, being natural to life and the human condition, should be confronted in a respectful and meaningful fashion. This film does that.
This film does not skirt around the consequences of one's actions. This film faces them bold-facedly. *SPOILER* Even though the film has a happy family ending, it does not pretend that jealousy does not happen; that rage does not motivate actions; that death does not exist. The normal kids' emotions are not just explored but dealt with as if Stephen Chow were writing about his kids.
This film is a testament to what kids films should be like.
I give this film the highest rating!!
(also because there are some great acting preformances and some hilarious moments!)
