Movie Review: Lulu The Movie (PG)
Fans of Michelle Chong's lovable Lulu character from The Noose will enjoy this flick devoted to "Singapore's favourite PRC".
The mainland Chinese KTV hostess from the parody TV news programme gets a whole movie of her own, chronicling Lulu's journey to Singapore to find love, and eventually become a star.
While the prospect of an origin story for Lulu is intriguing, the plot in Lulu The Movie feels uneven at times. What worked in the short snippets of The Noose does not easily translate to the big screen.
Where the film shines is when Chong interviews people as Lulu, asking them about her bizarre fashion sense and leopard print outfits.
Look out for fun cameos from a bunch of local celebrities, including one of TNP's own.
