Dicky (Jiao Xu) yearns for the hottest new toy -- a robotic dog -- but his poor father (Stephen Chow) gives him a strange, green ball he found in a junkyard instead. Turns out the unassuming present is actually an alien endowed with unearthly powers. Is Dicky ready for the responsibility of a pet that's capable of granting his every whim? Chow also directs, lending his off-kilter sensibility to this fable about being careful what you wish for.

Scott Hardie: “It sucked.”

This mess about a hapless father, an ungrateful son, and their wacky alien "dog" fails at being funny and even worse at being touching. The kid is way too hard on both of them for his "regret" to mean much, and the alien design is freakishly distracting.
