Just Follow Law is a Singaporean comedy film released in 2007. Directed by Jack Neo, the film starring Fann Wong, Gurmit Singh, and Moses Lim. The plot chronicles the comical events that take place after a government agency enforces the mandatory relocation of a single tree from a suburban dwelling to the city, causing chaos and confusion. The movie follows the character of Lim Liping, played by Fann Wong, a lawyer working for a government agency in charge of enforcing the regulations in Singapore. She is assigned to help a family relocate a tree that has been deemed dangerous by the authorities. The family, the Wong family, is played by Gurmit Singh and Moses Lim. They live in a suburban house where the tree stands, and they are unwilling to let go of the tree. As Lim begins to enforce her orders to remove the tree, she encounters resistance from the Wong family. They refuse to cooperate, leading to a series of comical events that escalate with each passing day. The family devises numerous schemes to hold onto their beloved tree, including hiring a fake tree expert to convince Lim of the tree's value and staging fake accidents to blame on the tree's supposed instability. Meanwhile, Lim's boss, played by Henry Thia, is under pressure from his superiors to enforce the removal of the tree, leading to bouts of overzealous enforcement by his subordinates. Lim, who is struggling with her own personal problems, finds herself caught in the crossfire as both the Wong family and her own colleagues plot to undermine her efforts. Just Follow Law is a light-hearted comedy with an underlying commentary on the bureaucratic and rigid nature of the government's approach to regulations in Singapore. The film showcases the clash between the rules and traditions with the ever-evolving needs of a modern society that values individual freedom and expression. The film highlights the stubbornness and resistance by the authority to change and peoples' ability to creatively resist any change from established practices. One of the most impressive aspects of the film is its excellent casting. The well-known actors - Fann Wong, Gurmit Singh, and Moses Lim - deliver top-notch performances and hilarious moments throughout the film. Jack Neo does an excellent job helming the project, keeping it tight, and building up the comedy as the story progresses. The light-hearted comedy is sure to put a smile on the viewers' face with its expertly delivered punchlines and situational humor. The movie gives an interesting depiction of Singaporean culture, showcasing the traditional values while hinting at the future's hidden desires.
