| Carrying on from the Bra!
After the brilliance of La Brassiere, it's not surprising that they really had to come up with a sequel. And well worth it too.

Following the success of the ultimate bra, Samantha (Carina Lau) is asked to take over a company making baby products. However, she decides not to do so, but nominates Johnny (Lau Ching-Wan), whom she breaks up with ten minutes earlier, and Lena (Gigi Leung) to take her place. As so the team reunite to design the ultimate baby product, dubbed 'Mighty Baby'. Question is, what will they come up with?

Mighty Baby also sees the introduction of a few other big names: Cecilia Cheung, who plays Boey, a child expert, Rosamund Kwan, who plays Sabrina, an ultra-neurotic secretary, and Cherrie In, a young single mother.

The story continues well from the last outing and much of the style of humour is much the same. However, I did find that this film was a lot more 'bitsy' with too many non-flowing scenes and story lines. This is not aided by the large cast of characters - the strong line-up is great, but you do feel as though you want to see more of them.

The film also didn't quite feel as spontaneous as the last. However, with one of the rules of showbiz broken (children, of course, and the youngest bunch at that), this was always going to be a tough movie to make, requiring loads of patience.

Mighty Baby is probably not as good as La Brassiere, but given that the latter came from the top drawer, the standards were extremely tough to beat. Nonetheless, if you forget about La Brassiere and watched Mighty Baby for what it is, it is a great movie in itself. One for a good laugh.
