I would like to call this a Thai spoof of Charlie Angels, right down to the action sequence on the plane and slow motion acts by the beach. Five undercover angels called the Chai Lais (with ridiculous names such as Rose, Hibiscus and Lotus), are tasked with foiling the evil plans of an international crime syndicate.

They must use all of their skills, intellect (?) and assets (em…) to fight their evil nemeses as they arrive in Thailand to pursue the key to their national treasure.

Let me say that this movie reminded me of one of those Hong Kong comedies you will watch in the 80s, most likely starring Veronica Yip. If Singapore were to film its own Rojak Angels, the 5 most likely candidates are Ann Poh, Fiona Xie, Michelle Chia, Michelle Saram and Patricia Mok. Well, you need a mix of those with assets, those who can make you laugh, and some who can’t act for nuts right?

Guys, be in for a treat of girls clad in stewardess costume, bathrobes, towels, uniforms and skimpy bikinis fight in out with a group of useless men, a funny bakpok and a cross eyed killer. Of course, take note of the never ending soundtrack and the girls dancing in a Thai version of Pussycat Dolls’ Don’t Cha. Ah huh.

This should be a good lesson for girls out there. If you need to fight an aggressor, either slam him with your bosoms or kick his groin with your stilettos. Ouch!

These gorgeous girls happen to be here in Singapore now and I was invited for a press conference. Actually, I just have one question to ask them, “Are those real?”

Chai Lai – It’s so bad you have to watch it!
