As of press time, "Half Comedy" was released for three days, and the box office was only over 41 million, less than 50 million. The box office figures required are not enough to describe, but rather shabby. At that time, Happy Twist ’s first movie, “Charlotte Troubles,” pressed the “Hong Kong Cricket” of the same period with a black box office posture, and finally won 1.44 billion box office. It can be said that Happy Twist ’s movie has a very high starting point and has a strong box office appeal. Li, to the 2.2 million box office of "Shy Tekken" and "The Richest Man in Xihong City" at 2.54 billion box office, such impressive results are all proof of the success of Happy Twist Movies. However, starting from "Aunt Li Cha", the box office was only in the early 600 million, and according to the current box office situation, even the box office is difficult to reach 600 million. This is enough to explain a problem. Happy Twist movies have no box office appeal. What really has a box office appeal is Happy Twist's desk pillar Shen Teng. These box office movies are all starring Shen Teng. It is no exaggeration to say that Shen Teng is already one of the four comedic kings in the Mainland.
The genre of "Half Comedy" is romance and comedy, but the core is tragedy. Everyone understands the cause of the tragedy, because of the cruelty of real life. But I don't think such comedy is clever. Because of the plot of the movie, from the beginning, it was known that the core was a tragedy, it was just a comedy. Of course, this movie has a good rating on Douban, with 7.7 points. Rather than saying that this comedy film, it is better to say that this is a literary film, which has a certain practical significance. Because of the different origins, in the poems and distant places, the actor has to choose.
Therefore, the box office and theme of "Half Comedy" are not enough to support the situation of the scenery. If you simply pursue the box office, make the movie simpler. At the end of the year, everyone likes to watch a pure comedy film. If you want a biochemical theme, don't put on the cover of comedy. Let the audience laugh and think. This is not clever. , Not to mention the high-end atmosphere of the movie. The tragedy was really performed in a comedy, so that the audience watched it very much, but after some years, it became known that it was a tragedy. This kind of movie can only be done by Xingye, and the most typical one is to talk westward. Therefore, happy twist films should distinguish between drama and film and television, the jokes on the drama may not be on the screen. Therefore, comedy films in the Mainland still need to work harder, at least not far from the golden age of Hong Kong films.
