Director Johnnie To Kei Fung spoke about MERMAID (MEI YUN YU)'s outstanding Lunar New Year box office in a Mainland media interview earlier.
According to Hktopten, Johnnie To stated that the film, which was directed by Stephen Chow, was not entertaining but at the same time praised his rich creativity.
"It's not entertaining at all. I am very direct. When I don't like it, I don't like it. That's right, Chow Sing Chi is very successful. He is a very creative and capable person, but the film probably could have been much better."
