Lee Ching Wan (Kelly Chen) is a recent graduate of the Academy for the Performing Arts. She is auditioning for a part in a musical. At the same time, she decides to teach at a boarding school for presumably expatriate kids. Shrimp Man, aka Mr. Lam (Aaron Kwok) is a PE teacher at the school. The main focus is for Miss Lee to lead the kids in a choir competition, whereupon elements of the movie Sister Act start emanating. Kelly Chen's first movie and it was a nice performance on her part.

Aspiring dancer Lee Ching Wan teaches at an elementary school whilepracticing for an important audition (a part in the play 'Rats'). With the help of gym teacher 'Shrimp Man' Lam she trains a group of reluctant kids for a singing competition. Will she get the part? Will the kids win the contest? And will Lee and Lam find love? I'm not telling, but it is a 'feel good' movie. If you loved Aaron acting like a fool for love in _Love is a Fairy Tale_ and you like kids, this is the perfect movie for you. High UFO production values make this basic concept film enjoyable, and the kids are a refreshing change from the _Shaolin Popeye_ series. Just don't expect anything more than mind candy.

In an industry where there are few wholesome movies for children, this film is a rarity. While not exactly magical, it is decent entertainment. An unexceptional film with heart.

(6/10)

I was hoping to like this film but in vain. Although I was in the mood for a "feel good" movie. The best element of this film is Aaron Kwok' s performance, beside that there is nothing else than a succesion of cliches. Watch-out for a very unexpected (and embarasing) musical number where Kelly Chan (a real life popular pop singer) is trying to cheer-up one of her student. Definitily not my cup-of-tea.
