THAI COMEDY MOVIES

Thai comedy are very popular. Nowadays most popular movies are either horror, action or comedy movies. Thai comedies remain popular in Thailand but not abroad. Jokes remain targeted for local audience. Some comedy Thai movies (หนังตลก) are based on romantic stories taking place on the countryside. Comedies, which are a base for Thai audiences, has narrow potential for non-Thai viewers since the Thai home grown jokes can hardly be understood by people non used to Thai culture. Before movie "เทพบุตรต๊ะติ๊งโหน่ง" (1977), comic actor was never the main actor but has only a supporting role as domestic, gardener, driver and so on… In 2000s, the comic actor is really the leading actor such as Mum Jokmok, Pongsak Pongsuwan, Akom Preedakul…

Ramon is a young lady. She is an English teacher in a HiSo family living in a palatial house. The family includes crazy domestics, a stammering son called Johnnie incapable to study hard during private English lesson, a lazy daughter called Maew, a mother (คุณหญิง) playing in illegal casino (บ่อน). Bow, young man, is fianced with Maew. The HiSo family wears exuberant clothes and has a high pitch tone when speaking. They all have funny long Thai names. The grandfather is sick but still has enough strength to hide four bunnies in his room. Ramon, the leading actress (นางเอก), is a poor lady bothered by the various jealous ladies. Johnnie's brother Phet, wearing a beautiful immaculate white suit, comes back from foreign countries. Maew and her mother (นางอิจฉา) dislike Ramon. Bow, despite being Maew's fiance, has high interest into Ramon. He offers her flowers and gifts causing Maew's ire. Bow asks Chet to act as an intermediate (พ่อซื้อ) to seduce Ramon. The HiSo family needs to think about Phet's wedding. During a family trip to Hua Hin, the mother and Maew use ruffians (ตัวกง) to injure Ramon but to no avail. The family has a declining jewelry business. Ramon makes new designs and Phet wishes to operate new business changes. Mysteriously Ramon's successful designs are stolen. During typical TV series, surprising announcements always happen on the last episode. So during the official collection launch, it is discovered that Ramon is a undercover policewoman. The family lawyer is dishonest and has stolen the jewelry designs. A wedding between Ramon and Chet can happily take place. This movie needs to be seen tongue in cheek as it is a satire of Thai TV serie / soap opera called locally 'Lakorn' (ละคร). It includes the leading actress (นางเอก), who is always a kind and nice person. She never kisses her boyfriend neither held his hand. The bad girl (นางอิจฉา) tries everything to be the main actor's girlfriend and always tries to get rid off the leading actress. She is often a stereotypical character who does not hesitate to do bad things to the leading actress. The leading actor is called พระเอก. A group of funny comedians (ตัวตลก) supports the leading actor. The funny comedians are represented here as 'katoei' (กะเทย - man dressed like a woman), who always has a silly but funny role to play. The movie is based on famous Thai TV series such as 'Baan Sai thong' (บ้านทรายทอง). It includes sickly sentimental music (รักเธอหมดใจ).



Some Comedy Thai movies (หนังตลก) are based on gay characters. Gays usually play as supporting characters to the heroes and heroines as assistants and also a comic relief. Starting in 1997, the "New Wave" of Thai Cinema brought back into highlight a genre that already had been present in 1980's Thai cinema, i.e. gay movies. The huge commercial success of "Iron Ladies" triggered a whole series of gay-related movies with diverse story lines. Instead of depicting everyday gay life and promoting political rights, many are operating within the sphere of the family. Whereas in the past, funny gays characters dominated the scene, now gender normative homosexuals are becoming increasingly visible on screen.

Pee Toom Tim is a gay ghost comedy taking place during football World cup qualifications. Rak is a successful football goalkeeper and is part of Thailand national team. During a match, he is injured on the head and dies. A spirit (วิญญาณ), called Ming, enters the dead body. The big issue is that Ming is gay so Rak's character changes from a macho to a gay style. Ming has to deal with Rada, Rak's girlfriend. Rak's goalkeeper duty is important as Thailand national football team has the opportunity to qualify for the first time for World cup. His teammates believe Rak is crazy as he is talking alone but in fact talking in fact with Yama (พระยม), the hell god. Ming has to perform a few missions (qualify the football team for world cup, declare his love to Rada, help for the acceptance of a gay member in a family - เป็นกะเทยแต่เป็นคนดี - and in Thai society as a whole, help a young Thai man to achieve his dreams to be a dancer instead of being a policeman as requested by his father, organize a wedding between a cheerleader and a footballer and so on...). As usual, there are a few bad cliches about gay characters working in bars or gay shows. One of the coach promises to drug the national team as he has debts with the mafia. As he knows that Rak is possessed by a spirit, the coach is seeking help from a master (อาจารย์) in order to fight Ming (ผีนรก / ผีตูด). Ming prevents this to happe and the national team is qualified. Finally Rak spirit is allowed to come back in his own body. The movie was shot in 2002 but only released in 2009 as the executive producer worried for Sahamongkol Film International reputation!
