He is no doubt the king of the movie scene in Singapore. No disrespect meant to the likes of Royston Tan, Eric Khoo, and Kelvin Goh, but Jack Neo is definitely on another level altogether. His films may be cliche and stereotypical to the point of racism, but he manages to touch Singaporeans in a way anyone would kill for.

I remember his film Home Run. Even today, I will say that it is one of the best films by a Singaporean. The image of Shawn running a marathon just for a brand new pair of shoes is one that is not easily forgotten. Although his personal life is suspect, I believe that that should not deter people from recognising the impact his films had on Singapore as a whole.

As we speak, his film Ah Boys to Men is playing. I'm catching it tonight, and I am sure it'll be another heartwarming film about Singaporean culture.
