    A well-structured, smalltown comedy, with no surprises but good ensemble chemistry, Bath Buddy 沐浴之王 is the second feature by comedian Yi Xiaoxing 易小星, better known under his nickname Jiaoshou Yi Xiaoxing 叫兽易小星 (“Yi ‘The Beast’ Xiaoxing”), under which he directed the amusing Journey to the West spoof Surprise 万万没想到 (2015). As that film showed, with its string of sketches, Yi’s roots are in online comedy shorts, where he built his fanbase; Bath Buddy, however, has the feel of a real feature film, with an over-arching structure and relationships that develop in a touching (if formulaic) way. It’s become a surprise end-of-year attraction, taking over RMB340 million in its first 10 days, a healthy amount for a small, character-driven film and already more than Surprise’s total of RMB323 million. [Finally tally was RMB405 million.]

     

    Bath Buddy (China 2020) - Movie Review

     

    The teaming of the boyish-looking but versatile Peng Yuchang 彭昱畅 (Our Shining Days 闪光少女, 2017; Go Brother 快把我哥带走, 2018) with older, more experienced comic Qiao Shan 乔杉 actually works very well, with Peng, 26, as the arrogant fuerdai playboy who’s been humbled by amnesia and Qiao, 36, as the wily, smalltown entrepreneur who looks to exploit his lack of memory by getting him to work for free in his ailing bathhouse. Pudgy-faced Qiao – often teamed with fellow comic Da Peng 大鹏 (Father and Son 父子雄兵, 2017; City of Rock 缝纫机乐队, 2017) but also memorable as the duplicitous husband in black comedy Kill Mobile 来电狂响, 2018 – can do goofy/crafty as easily as falling off a log and, though Peng gets top billing, it’s Qiao’s film through and through.

    Though the plot depends on Qiao’s character hoodwinking a younger guy into believing he’s the elder man’s brother, the comedy is underscored by the realisation that Peng’s character is going to recover his memory at one point or another. It’s to the credit of the script – by seven people, including director Yi – as well as to the performances of Qiao and Peng that the final third doesn’t turn soggy as both (expectedly) find a measure of humility and a genuine friendship. In fact, the film comes up with a whole new subplot – a scrub-and-massage world international championship, complete with bathhouse gongfu – to drive the finale in a competitive way.

    Qiao is used to working in comic ensembles and it shows in his easy chemistry with the varied supporting cast, from Wuhan-born actress Bu Guanjin 卜冠今, 26 – so good in Only the Wind Knows 那一场呼啸而过的青春 (2017), her first leading role – as his younger sister in big specs and goo-goo eyes for Peng’s character, through veteran Wei Qing 苇青, 72, as the granny, to Hong Jiantao 洪剑涛 as an elder employee of Peng and heavyweight character actor Sang Ping 桑平 as a long-haired, out-there rocker. Technical credits are unshowy but fine, from the widescreen photography by Liu Yizeng 刘懿增 (Lost in Russia 囧妈, 2020), through the editing by Hong Kong whizz Li Dongquan 李栋全 [Wenders Li], to the naturalistic art direction by Bai Furui 白馥瑞 (My Heart Leaps Up 我心雀跃, 2016). Shooting was around Wuxi, northwest of Shanghai.

    The film’s Chinese title derives from the title scene in which parts of a neon sign outside the bathhouse are fused when Xiao Xiang crashes to earth, turning the characters 沐浴解乏理疗 (“Bathing, Relaxation, Physiotherapy”) into 沐浴之王 (“Bathing King”).
