Talking cock

A young man's doomed attempt to dotcom his father's illegal loansharking business ; a banker who loses his mobile phone and his senses ; a waitress in a bao shop who resorts to teaditional (and unsanitary) methods to woo the object of her affections ; and a teenage heavy metal band who are forced to transform themselves into a boy band ... plus a lot of other really silly 100% Singaporean skits! Based on www.TalkinCock.com, Singapore's top humour website, this crazy multi-cultural comedy features REAL Singaporeans, not the usual boring TV personalities!

Funny, silly and a darn good movie. Lots of fun. ~Mike
