The Irresistible Piggies (2002)


Director: Lo Kim Wah

Starring: Kelly Lin, Karen Mok, Michele Reis, Shooky Kwan

A refreshingly silly nonsense comedy, filled with jokes, funny ideas, and visual gags.

Four women working at the same company are termed "the pork chops" because they are not physically attractive. After a female executive schemes to have them laid off, the "pork chops" exact their revenge.

Anarchy and bright-hearted fun rules the day. Instead of focusing on one body part as the target of derision, each of the "pork chops" has a different physical defect, and each has a measure of (fragile) self-confidence despite the hurtful insults they must endure. The male characters also have "defects," which tends to balance things out. The variety of defects on display gives the viewer a rooting interest in different characters.

The story moves along at a gallop, rarely slowing down as one comic situation after another is played out. All kinds of humor is thrown into the mix, including visual gags aplenty, wordplay, a horror film parody, etc. Not all the nonsense works -- some is downright cruel and other bits may be offensive -- but overall it makes for an enjoyable stew. Good comic work from the entire ensemble certainly helps.

Producer Wong Jing was also credited with the script, which sometimes seems like it was made up as the film was made. Comedies are extremely subjective to one's individual sense of humor, of course. What we found funny, you may not. Still, it's hard to go wrong here -- as long as you check your brain at the door.
