You go, Betty girl!

They decide to cheat for MC (medical certificate) but the Platoon Commander does not buy their idea and chases them away. Then, the Platoon Commander launches a series of rigorous training. Everyone is complaining, so Ah Nan and Ah Lei decide to play a trick on their Platoon Commander as a form of revenge. As they are about to start their revenge, a series of strange things happen……..

“Both Dennis and En Lai are popular and successful comedians in both Chinese and English markets in Singapore.

I hope that the on-screen chemistry between both Dennis and En Lai will lure everyone to catch them and their hilarious moments in the movie when it opens in cinemas,” says Director Boris Boo.
