These days, my husband and I made effort to spend time as a couple rather than just being a parent to our son. Having our son when we were barely out of college, we missed out quite a lot as a couple. We were always more anxious on raising the boy more than anything else during our youth, and now he’s quite grown up, despite being busy with our job demands, we try as much as we can to spend time with each other.
Going to the movies every now and then is part of our current favourite past time. 😛 sure, it may sound normal to most of you, but considering that both of us are living an extremely busy lives, even going to dinners or movies together is special. Especially it it is impromptu or during one of those working nights.
Problems? Yes. Plenty. Not on the money part but on looking for a nice movie to watch together that is actually worth our time. Watched Penguin of Madagascar together back in January and it was great. February was not exactly our month. We watched plenty of movies in February but most of them are lousy. Although I enjoyed my husband’s companionship immensely, I couldn’t help cussing silently that the movie was not satisfactory enough.
Was getting pretty wary and thought that I would have to be forced to be contented to just enjoy all the snuggling in the cinema instead of the whole movie experience, then came March and we were invited to the preview of ‘Ah Boys To Men 3: Frogmen’.
Cute movie ticket. Currently keeping this as a souvenir and using it as a bookmark. 😛
We get to meet the casts as well. 😉
So, before I comment on the movie, allow me to share with your the synopsis of it:

Synopsis: Ah Boys to Men 3: Frogmen brings Singapore’s favourite recruits back to the days before enlistment in ABTM. Instead of reporting to Pualu Tekong, the Ah Boys are posted to the Naval Diving Unit (NDU). Returning to active duty are familiar characters ? Ken Chow (Joshua Tan), the spoilt, rich kid, who tries to ‘keng’ his way out of NS. Aloysius Jin AKA Wayang King (Maxi Lim), whose over-enthusiasm creates more problems for his cabin mates. Lobang (Wang Weiliang), the street-smart wheeler dealer, out to make a quick buck off his cabin mates. Joining them is new face Hei Long AKA The Black Dragon (Wesley Wong), an aggressive gang leader, who prefers to talk with his fists instead of his mouth. Together, these ragtag band of misfits must somehow survive 40 weeks of training in hell. Do they have what it takes to become one of Singapore’s most fearsome military units ? The frogmen?
So, what did I think about this movie? Good or bad? It’s good. Quite an emotional roller coaster ride despite the fact that the movie genre is a comedy and I was treated to the views of well sculptured male bodies. Worth both your time and money. I can vouch for that. There is plenty of character’s development in this movie and you can actually see how the characters transformed to being better person by the end of the movie. While the movie is hilarious in nature, there is plenty of moral values embedded along the way and not to mention not so subtle message on doing what is right although it may crucify you emotionally.
In all, it is a good movie, and yes. I enjoyed this movie very much and easily give it a 5/5 and I’m absolutely glad that I did not have to just be contented to snuggling up to my husband and sleep in the cinema.
