Having seen the horrible Fight back to School I wasn't expecting much from this early Stephen Chow comedy. This one at least knows it's a comedy. There are a few good comic moments, but Chow's character is genuinely unlikable (like say, Ace Ventura) and, for the most part, Tricky Brains feels like it was written by an eight-year-old with no understanding of how adults behave. It could also be that a lot is lost in translation.
