Thought I would miss this but I managed to catch That Girl In Pinafore before it ends.
Wasn’t expecting much because there were mixed reviews for this film. It’s obvious that this is trying to be a “Singapore version of 那些年“, but somehow some elements are just missing…
On top of that, with the censorship and everything, more “essence” of the movie was inevitably lost. I mean “what the *tootttttt*” just doesn’t sound as cool as “what the fuck“; it’s like constipation. And with the constant *toottttt*-ing here and there, it can get annoying. In short, censorship stops the shit from flowing.
Apart from all these, the storyline itself was okayyy. Nothing especially unique, but I think people who enjoyed this film mainly enjoyed it because of the songs (and pretty casts), which I did.
Here is one of my favourite 新谣 from the movie~
