| The "Baby Queen" Gets A Little Naughty
You just have to love Li Ching. She is so, so cute with an impish smile. In this film she plays the Seventh Sister, a goddess from heaven who wants to see what the mortal world is all about. Shye goes to Hong Kong and eventually stumbles upon Zili, who is running a debt laden orphanage. The orphanage is sold via auction to Xu Caifa, a cigar chomping wise guy. They are looking to close the orphanage to build a villa. The film is basically about the relationship between Zili and the Seventh Sister and their efforts to save the orphanage. The film is uneven, but the casting of Li Ching was essential. She is so pretty and she means well. She does little things with her magical powers that are fun. This could have been a children's film, a strict good vs evil film. But this film veers into adult territory and while its not bad by any means, there are a few scenes that weren't really needed. The film is definitely watchable through to the end, but its not essential. as to the question of whether the orphanage is saved, you'll see if you watch. The film is better than average but not a must see.
