| Valuable Movie
We are often typified by the similar fact of reality TV shows from all around the world, but such as this one brought up by Jack Neo is one of which that typify our daily routine living which we have not one second thought of it. We often would not have thought of how our lives were, not until we come across by actually visualizing it.

This movie, I Not Stupid 2 is not a sequel to its prequel which was screened some time ago. Its different in terms of continuity, but the set of moral values and the objective of this movie stays almost the same.

Filled with good humor from the common Singlish and Mandarin language plus additional dramatic moments and good moral values, this movie is definitely one of its kind that notifies us not for the sole fact of entertainment, but also to shake us up and reveal to us the reality of the lives Singaporean and perhaps even Malaysian lives in.

This movie centers around two rich and successful parents and their kids Tom and Jerry who live around a life, though wealth but not a bed of roses. This brings us to understand how hard it can be to actually communicate with parents who sticks up their priority of career in hand. On the other extreme, yet, Cheng Cai, Tom's friend who lives in a meager situation with his father faces a hard time of learning things the harsh way. Growing up from a violent and rude background, he finds nothing much of good virtue to learn from his father. He certainly projects a character of confusion and notoriety towards his circle of friends, but one good value of his is loyalty to his friends.

The movie also never fails to project onto the characters of the teachers, inclusive of one which strictly goes by the rule, one who dwells in the living of 'when I was your age, this was what I get, and yet another one who finds the importance of his students by looking at their good values. We understandably get a grasp of how the modern society clashes with the ones of previous generations. Such understandably brings about a good standard, yet unwittingly an entertaining time for all of those who wishes to laugh (on the Singlish) and cry (on the moral values) at the same time.

The actors did a good job for this movie and the credit should not center around Jack Neo alone, but towards all the younger cast especially for producing such an impact in this movie. A job well done!
