Review: Tales From The Bedroom 3 (KLPAC, 2016)

Three does not do the trick for Big Nose Production’s latest installment of its highly popular Valentine’s Day series.

Presenting lengthy peeks into the bedroom of twelve different couples, Tales From The Bedroom 3 lacks vitality, wit and enough tricks to keep voyeurs interested past foreplay. These pairings may be diverse — from interracial gay to geriatric Malay, Fa Abdul presents a highly-inclusive snapshot of contemporary Malaysian society — but they lack in complexity once strained through the camp, risible direction of Matthew Koh. Despite showcasing actress Nik Waheeda‘s breathtaking knack for comedy and a daring group of young actors, Fa’s script ultimately fails to get past first base, lost in a pursuit for appeal with its crass humour and manipulative emotional twists. Sold out nights and lively full houses in Pentas 2 beg to differ however, so keep an open mind.
