About the movie, “Ah Boys to Men”

“Ah Boys to Men” is a two-part comedic story that revolves around a group of army recruits adapting, sometimes hilariously, to the way of life inside and outside National Service in Singapore. Ken, who is born into a rich family with a businessman father and a homemaker mother, has been spoilt by his mother and grandmother since young. After finishing his A Levels with subpar grades that are below the cutoff grades of the local universities, he hopes to study abroad with his girlfriend, Amy. However his plans are disrupted by his National Service, which to him, is something that is passé and a waste of his youth. Knowing how much Ken hates the National Service, his mother and grandmother try all sorts of methods, including finding the Member of Parliament (MP) for help, just to delay his enlistment. His stern father is displeased by his attitude and is constantly harping about having Ken to undergoOfficer CadetSchool, which worsen the poor relationship between the father and son.

About the director, Jack Neo

During the 1990s, Jack Neo won the local audience over with his signature comedic hosting style in variety programmes. Apart from hosting and acting then, he was the creative brain behind the longest running local and high rated variety show, “Comedy Night”. The popularity of the decade-long production is a strong testament of Jack’s remarkable talents and creativity.

Following his success in television productions, Director Neo took on new challenges and ventured into the film industry in 1998 with “Money No Enough”,Singapore’s 3rd highest grossing feature film. Consequently, he scripted, directed and produced a successful string of coveted movies namely “I Not Stupid” (2002), “Homerun” (2003), “The Best Bet” (2004), romantic comedy “I Do I Do” (2005), “One More Chance” (2005), “We Not Naughty” (2012), “Ah Boys To Men” (2012) and “Ah Boys to Men 2″ (2013) which is currently the highest grossing Singaporean film.
