Stephen Chow's New Film "CJ7"

Stephen Chow's latest film came out recently. It is no secret with my friends that I love Stephen Chow. He is a budding director that is fearless when it comes to experimenting on the silver screen with comedy and special effects. How can you hate this guy? It would take some sort of Anti-Chowite, I guess.

It is a story about an alien coming from out of space. Honestly, the premise itself indicates that this won't play as well in the West as Kung Fu Hustle or Shaolin Soccer. However, I am really pleased to see Stephen Chow return to his roots in comedy. Prior to those two films, his comedies were "cartoonish" without relying on martial arts choreography. Here's hoping that CJ7 is fun. It looks like Flubber, Air Bud, and Chicken Little in one film. Those were all average films at best, but Stephen Chow is one of the funniest people ever. It should be better than Evan Almighty at least.

A scene from the Flirting Scholar that show off what this CJ7 could be in tone and humor (without tons of crazy choreography).
