I Not Stupid Too is a comedy keenly centred on the theme of increasingly difficult relationships between parents and their children today, due to a lack of communication. More than often, parents think they understand their children, based on the reasoning of I-gave-birth-to-you-so-I-know. But do they really? A child is most vulnerable at teen years, which is without doubt the most crucial period in the development of the child. A single wrong move by the parents can result in a lifetime of regrets. How well aware are the parents of this fact?
Set in Singapore’s fast-paced modern society, the narrative progresses through the eyes of 9-year-old Jerry as he and his older brother, Tom, face the pressures of school and demands of their wealthy but ever-bickering parents.
Along also for the ride is Tom’s friend, Cheng Cai, who is often misunderstood by his teacher at school, and whose own predicament with his single hawker-stall owning father reveals the film’s deep concern with the generation gap between its characters.
Through Tom and Cheng Cai, the film also delves into juvenile delinquency as a result of this breakdown in communication, while Jerry simultaneously runs around trying to get his parents to attend his upcoming performance in school.
Multi-faceted, insightful and highly entertaining, I Not Stupid Too features a large cast of talented actors and a delightful story every Singaporean can relate to.
