General info
Original title: Cheung Gong 7 Hou (長江七號)
Country: Hong Kong
Year: 2008
Genre: Comedy, Sci-Fi
IMDB Rating: 6.6 5929 votes
Plot: Featuring the trademark Chow slapstick humor, CJ7 is a comedy about a poor laborer father, Ti, played by Stephen Chow, and his young son, Dicky. When a fascinating and strange new pet enters their lives, Dicky, an elementary school student, sees a chance to overcome his poor background and shabby clothes and impress his fellow students for the first time in his life. The 'pet' however has other ideas and when Dicky brings it to class, comedic chaos erupts including a showdown with the terrifying school bully, Storm Dragon!

The 'CJ' in the English title refers to the Mandarin name for the Yangtze River ('Changjiang'), and is also a typical name attached to things like Chinese space probes.

Featured reviews for

Love HK Film, by Kozo source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/reviews_2/cj7.html
«Stephen Chow doesn't really surprise here, but he does do what he chooses to do with entertaining finesse. This film will amuse and delight kids, and likely tickle adults who don't mind soggy lessons about appreciating your parents' stern lessons.»
IGN, by Todd Gilchrist source: http://movies.ign.com/articles/856/856162p1.html
«CJ7 is a smart, funny, and imaginative adventure, and its charms are absolutely worth phoning home about, even if they require a little effort to properly enjoy.»
Twitch, by Grady Hendrix source: http://twitchfilm.net/site/view/cj7-review1/
«It feels like the best toy advertisement you’ve ever seen, and I mean that completely unironically. There’s nothing at all wrong with it, but I expected a little bit more from Stephen Chow.»
TVGuide, by Maitland McDonagh source: http://www.tvguide.com/movies/cj7/review/292687
«CJ7 is as bracingly clear-eyed as Disney classics like OLD YELLER (1957) in its understanding that innocent fantasy and painful reality are both integral parts of childhood.»
Time Out New York, by Joshua Rothkopf source: http://www.timeout.com/film/newyork/reviews/85223/cj7.html
«But what CJ7 ultimately reveals about global tastes is not just the triumph of Spielberg’s brand of blockbuster imagineering, but of the Hollywood director’s influence as a planter of undercurrents of class rage and incipient maturation.»
Variety, by RICHARD KUIPERS source: http://www.variety.com/review/VE1117936047.html?categoryid=31&cs=1&query=CJ7
«In an attempt to create the Chinese equivalent of a franchiseable Hollywood family blockbuster, Chow's fifth helming effort has none of his nonsensical verbal humor and far fewer cartoonishly violent f/x setpieces.»
