all in all "ok" movie

first off - it wasn't hilarious, as i thought it would be (going by other commenters) maybe i don't get the Thai jargon or (Like in-house jokes that only a Thai person / Thai gay person would get) and yeah this was cute and had LGBTQ people in it, but to call this BL is far-fetched (in my opinion its a BL, when it involves the lead and of course his romantic interest - who is also a Boy. not the case here. well not specifically (again maybe i'm the one in the wrong, and enough that we got other gays character's to call this BL, what do i know)).

anyway didn't know it was a thing in Thailand for the parents to just promise their children (adult - i mean, young children i know it even exists in China and other countries where Buddhism exists) to the temple - as in, that they will get ordained (which can be only for a short period - it not for life?!?). that was weird to me - maybe it was exaggerated for the plot?
cause get that Nong's deceased mother was the one that made that "pledge" and cause he wasn't intending to keep it, he was gonna lose his life(?) punishment for not fulfilling that "promise". and then in come his friends(?) as First was crushing on him hard - even though there was no romantic angle in this movie - no matter how hard both First and Balloon tried XD (side note - Got that was "eliminated" a few min's into the movie - what they could afford that kickass wig, that even i was envious off, but no need for teeth??? why?????? like WTF?!?)

there were a lot of loveable character's like Aod, the Novice, First and Balloon. of course the lead, Nong - but the whole plot was a bit unconvincing. get that the producers relied on the audience focusing on the funny bits - and as read a lot of comments about how" hilarious this was" they succeeded. as there is even a 2nd movie. and yet i was bored - cause for me, it was like WTF is this really the plot - and these clueless moron's r gonna figure it out, while more experienced monks either ran away or were murdered?? k well whatever - it was ok - fine had a laugh or two. if i'm extremely bored might check-out the sequel.
