Single father Ti (Stephen Chow) works tirelessly to earn enough money to keep his son, Dicky (Xu Jiao), enrolled in a private school, hoping the education will lead to better career options. Dicky studies diligently, but his threadbare clothing prompts the derision of his affluent classmates, making him feel like an outcast. Unable to purchase an expensive toy Dicky wants, Ti finds a glowing ball in a junkyard and gives it to him. Soon, the orb turns into Dicky's new best friend -- an alien.

  • A bit of a letdown. The manic comedian who has gained fans worldwide for his outrageous slapstick and special effects-driven antics in "Kung Fu Hustle" and "Shaolin Soccer" takes a backseat this time - and that's part of the problem: This is lesser Chow because there is less Chow. show more

  • A hyperactive, wishful-thinking special effects fantasy suitable for family outings. show more

  • CJ7 is precisely the 80-something minutes of delirium and cheesy special-effects you'd expect from the man responsible for the chaos of "Shaolin Soccer" and the lunacy of "Kung Fu Hustle." show more
