It is not because this is a bad movie. It is simply because Stephen Chow(Chau Tinh Tri)has set a very high standard in classic like Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin soccer.
Over all, I liked this movie.
I rarely watch Chinese movie. I actually watched this one because of its box office.
The Mermaid (My Nhan Ngu) is definitely a good comedy. You will laugh a lot and sometimes it will be difficult to stop!
Specially the scene in the police station.
But the special effect & visual graphics is very weak what will annoy you.
Not to mention the underwater scene(s).
Story is not that deep but you cant complain because its a comedy movie (Review phim).
But you will definitely be entertained.
