No fooling, there really is a movie called Saranae Siblor
Set for release on April 1 -- no joke -- is Saranae Siblor (สาระแนสิบล้อ), the sophomore feature-film effort by the team from the Saranae TV series.
This time out, instead of adapting the reality-TV prank skits to the big screen as they did in last year's Saranae Hao Peng, the comedy team of "Ple" Nakorn Silachai, "Sena Hoi" Kiattisak Udomnak and Ruengrit "Willy" McIntosh, have crafted a fictional road-trip comedy adventure.
Along for the ride is Love of Siam heartthrob Mario Maurer. He plays a young man whose father suspects he's gay. He's sent packing on a road trip to learn how to become a man.
He gets a ride from the Che Guevara-styled driver (Ple) of an old 10-wheel truck (the siplor of the title). Sena Hoi and Kotee Aramboy (sufficiently recovered from being pranked in last year's movie) are Tweedledum-and-Tweedledee slapstick goofballs. Along the way they meet a prosthetic-legged woman who's trapped in a brothel ("Chompoo" Araya A. Hartgett) and are chased by her pimp (Willy). Patheera Sarutipongpokim also stars.
I don't know what more there is to it than that. It seems like the perfect April Fool's joke for Thai moviegoers.
