| Paper-thin story and character development
"It's a Great, Great World" tells the story about Great World which was a popular amusement park in Singapore until it closed in the 1970s. Co-writer and director Kelvin Tong tells four stories, very slightly interlinked. To be honest, the character development in this movie is paper-thin and the story narrative weak. There is virtually no twist in the plot; the four stories are like four separate short films, each lasting about 20 to 25 minutes. The movie is most notable for Mediacorp TV actors and actresses in filmic roles, speaking Chinese dialects. Its storyline is not compelling enough for a higher rating--it often seems like the dialect speeches are put in as a draw without making a cohesive storyline. A screenplay probably clobbered together in a couple of weeks... to spend S$2 million on this half-baked screenplay is a waste.
