Movie review: Hello Babies (2014)


I knew I was a bit too late for have just recently watched ‘Hello Babies’, one of the several Chinese New Year films from Hong Kong this year. It is released on February, and by now, only I had a chance to watch it. This Cantonese movie tells the story of a couple whom decide not to have children in order to maintain a peaceful lifestyle, but they are then forced by their wealthy uncle to do so to inherit his fortunes. The uncle had to do this too to show off to his long-time enemy whom will becomes grandfather soon. This leads to various issues relating to reproduction in a hilarious and heart-warming manner.

The movie starred Raymond Wong, Eric Tsang, Sandra Ng, Ronald Cheng, Fiona Sit, Karena Lam, and also features cameo appearance from Raymond Lam, Miriam Yeung and Louis Koo. In previous years, Eric Tsang had his own ‘I Love Hong Kong’ franchise to run during Chinese New Year, while Raymond Wong had his ‘All’s Well, Ends Well’ franchise. This year, both of them joined hands to make a single film, and it is expected to be the best, combining ideas from both of the two multi-talented stars. However, after watching ‘Hello Babies’, I was quite disappointed.

First of all, the story should not focus too much on reproduction and adult-relationship matters. This isn’t right for children. Chinese New Year movies should be suitable for people of all ages and to allow families into theatres to enjoy and laugh during the holiday. Luckily, ‘Hello Babies’ still delivered positive messages and most importantly, didn’t fail in comedy aspects. Sandra Ng is again the biggest factor for me to laugh from this movie. She is really a talented comedy actress. She made everything hilarious whenever she is present in a scene. I also did watched her in ‘Golden Chickensss’ movie (also released early this year). She nailed every roles. Ronald Cheng and Fiona Sit is a great pairing too when it comes to comedy.

Had nothing more to comment since that when I watched this, there is no longer Chinese New Year mood around. The festival is over for almost two months now. I watched it just to spend off my boring past weekend. But it did gives me a good entertainment. However, when I compared this to ‘Hotel Deluxe’ movie last year (suddenly remembered this CNY movie), I have to say ‘Hotel Deluxe’ is much better and funnier. This year’s CNY movies were mostly disappointing. ‘Hello Babies’ is considered already the best CNY movie from Hong Kong this year. Out of 10 points, I rate ‘Hello Babies’ a total of 7.0. Hoping that Hong Kong will produce better CNY movies next year.
