Based on real life rags-to-riches tales.
This after they heard that the fourth installment of the Ah Boys To Men movie in the interminable franchise will be called Ah Boys To Ministers 4.
The movie will follow the journey of a group of boys who undergo National Service, sign on as regulars with the Singapore Armed Forces on fast-tracked careers, and later on, get invited to join the incumbent political party of Singapore to run and win in the General Election.
One Singaporean, Zho Hee Seow, said this movie sounds like a true story: “Going from talentless lads to being one of the highest-paid public servants in the world is an inspirational story of good fortune and dumb luck.”
“Furthermore, it will bring into sharp focus the hilarity of going into public service as a matter of convenience rather than conviction.”
This narrative arc will have Singaporeans eating out of the franchise’s hands, other locals said.
Kua Hee Gong, another local said: “I will bring my family and friends along to watch as it will show me just exactly what we’re missing about the good life.”
However, not all Singaporeans are easily sold on the story and expect to see more drama.
Pian Lang, another Singaporean, said: “Along the way, one of the characters would have an affair and get caught and more hilarity would ensue.”
