Director Jack Neo will be shooting the fourth installation of his Ah Boys To Men movie franchise, tentatively titled Ah Boy Goes to DB.

The movie will be based on a true story revolving around the life of one full-time national serviceman who forgot to give a f%#k in his two years of serving National Service.

Bo Cheng Hu, the NSF, will be a character well-known for his antics, which have been well-documented.

On the first day, during swearing-in and the reciting of the pledge of allegiance, he would pretend to recite with the rest of his platoon mates, but in reality, was farting out loud all along.

He would later claim to be a Jehovah Witness.

When Bo undergoes hand grenade training, he would bring the grenade home.

During area cleaning, he would go to the canteen.

And when he is doing the 24km route march, he will lose his rifle by throwing it into a forested area.

Later on in his NS life, he would also consume cannabis and be arrested.

Film analysts are predicting the movie will gross $10 million locally, as it will be full of gritty realism.

Kan Dian Ying, a movie-goer, said: “This movie must be made into a musical.”

The fourth movie in the series will take a closer look at fluidity of gender and concept of “transformation”.

Buoyed by the latest success of Ah Boys To Men 3: Frogmen, as the third movie in Jack Neo’s franchise raked in $2.83 million in four days over the Chinese New Year period in Singapore to make it the Asian film with the biggest box office takings, a fourth movie is in the works and will tentatively be called Ah Boys To Women 4.

Saying how there is a need to address criticisms that he only makes movies for money and not artistic value or art for art’s sake, director Jack Neo and the studio involved in the Ah Boys franchise has green-lighted a fourth movie that would be devoid of commercial value and product placements.

One studio executive, Jin Guai Lan, said: “We have seen the boys go through army and navy already. Basically, that means they have conquered all in Singapore.”

“What else would the audience want to watch? Ah Boys To KPMG Auditor? Maybe, but that means they will be socially-awkward and not very conversant.”

Ah Boys To Neighbourhood Policemen? And then have them cycle around rescuing cats stuck in trees?”

Ah Boys To Bloggers? We have enough of that drama the past year already.”

“So, naturally, we will be making Ah Boys To Women 4. It will be a movie about change, in the most drastic sense of the word, which will undertake as its mission — the answering of the bigger questions about life and society in general.”

Singaporeans who heard of this latest announcement said they have seen enough of Jack Neo’s main male characters going through the motions of being infantile boys who turn into pre-pubescent adults, so the transformation into women is novel but natural, as gender transformation will be easy for the boys to portray.

One Singaporean woman, Jin Kao Peh, said: “I hope this next movie will be something similar to Eat Pray Love about finding one’s self.”

And it looks like this objective is already being worked into the script.

Speaking to the media, director Jack Neo, said: “I hope that the fourth part of the series can provide more transcendental elements as it will be a story about hope and acceptance as a result of unconventional change.”

“I believe Ah Boys To Women 4 would be a story about finding one’s self and one’s place in Singapore society. It can take on topics like coming to terms with one’s identity and how that identity can be a function of how society sees itself rather than how queer people see queer people.”

“Plus, it will be shot with a lot of low lighting and mood music to appease the artistic types.”

“As the first three Ah Boys To Men movies have made enough money, we will not put commercial considerations at the forefront, which means no more product placements.”

“Instead, the fourth movie will work on the artistic aspects and aim to make it as a submission to Cannes.”

“This is to address the criticisms that Jack Neo is not an artistic director but someone who does things mainly for money.”

“This is largely true, but we will show that any director who does things for money also has the capability of making a movie with artistic value that can be thought-provoking and disguise itself as high-brow conceptual fare that provides social commentary but, ultimately, leaves audiences flabbergasted and scratching their heads.”

“In Singapore, you make a commercial movie, you’d be vilified by the arts community.”

“On the other hand, if you make an artistic movie that can only win awards, that will effectively be the last movie you make as you’d be shunned by the studios because you got no commercial potential.”

“It’s really about bloody time someone in Singapore makes an artistic movie that also makes money. That would really show everybody.”

Mental anguish sets in, forcing all of them to breaking point.

ah-boys-to-frogmen

To prepare them for their role as combat naval diver-wannabes in the new follow-up movie, Ah Boys To Frogmen, to be directed by Jack Neo again, the Ah Boys To Men actors were made to watch 10 Jack Neo movies in a row to mentally train them.

This is to simulate the effects of mental anguish as the actors prepare to undergo a sissy version of Hell Week training for their new acting parts.

This new Ah Boys To Frogmen follow-up movie, which is slated to open during 2015 Chinese New Year, is expected to exploit the same formula as the Ah Boys To Men two-part franchise.

Not only will it be released in two parts to make people fork out twice the amount to watch one movie, it will contain less than half the amount of realism experienced by Naval Divers.

However, watching too many Jack Neo movies prove too much to take for the actors, as they were seen convulsing and foaming at the mouth after watching just the second movie.

A hospital personnel who attended to the actors, Kua Noh Koon, said: “I don’t know what is worse. Watching Jack Neo movies or starring in them.”

“But they deserve it.”

No one gets physically hurt online.

Singaporeans from all walks of life and with various levels of intellect, were relieved to learn that ‘Ah Boys to Men’ star Ridhwan Azman hits his girlfriend online.

This after they read a headline in Yahoo! News saying “‘Ah Boys to Men’ star Ridhwan Azman admits to hitting girlfriend online“.

The 19-year-old, who played Ismail Mohammed in the hit movies on Singapore’s national service, had specifically admitted to hitting his girlfriend on social media.

One Singaporean, Wah Jin Kiang, explained that violence online should not be tolerated — because it can be ignored: “It is the same as ‘Poking’ somebody via Facebook. It is a virtual poke, so no one gets hurt. Plus, you can always ignore it and don’t poke back.”
