Audience Reviews for The Fantastic Water Babes (Chut sui fu yung)

Jeffrey Lau's The Fantastic Water Babes is a deceiving sport comedy. Why? It does have the babes, it does have the water, but it is nowhere near fantastic.

The first act comes out running with a frantic pace and a wacky style to top it all off; however the film tends to lose itself with the consistent antics the characters put themselves through, which makes the film more odd than funny.

In the middle, The Fantastic Water Babes finds itself missing a bunch of its comical style while becoming more melodramatic with a story that has less and less resemblance to its title.

Fortunately, the final act picks up where the introduction left off and most of it comes with some good humor and quick pacing. The grand finale does lose some ground when it overdoes it with the CG though.

Gillian Chung does amuse in the early going, but she loses her spark by the end of the film. Lik-Sun Fong only matches for the dramatic parts, which are hardly entertaining. The more enjoyable characters belong to supporting actors Eva Huang and Stephen Fung. Stephen Fung is really something.

Ultimately, The Fantastic Water Babes isn't all it's cracked up to be and the few laughs aren't worth the price of admission.
