CJ7 (2008)


A poor Chinese laborer learns important lessons after his son gets a strange new toy. (IMDb)
A touching father-son drama and wacky kid comedy all in one (Xu nails the facial expressions for both), with some sci-fi thrown in there for shits and giggles (actually tho). Uproariously funny and heart-achingly poignant (see battered Dicky yell “bitterness, like the sea, is boundless!” before bounding up a million feet in the air with his super shoes), with our titular hero–a rubbery lime-green alien dog with a heart of gold and divine healing powers–embodying this wild mix of emotions.
8/10 (Great)
