  2018年暑期档的《西虹市首富》如果没有把你逗笑,那么“Describe a film or TV program you watched that made you laugh”这个口语话题,你可能就真的无话可说了……

  描述电影或故事,我们还是老套路:基于原作,在以自己说的顺嘴的原则上虚构、改编或删减情节。比如《西虹市首富》这部电影,咱们就可以这么说:

  I’d like to talk about a comedy called Hello Mr. Billionaire which is definitely a huge box-office success this summer. The movie starred Shen Teng, who’s the most popular comic actor in China right now.

  The story is quite ridiculous, actually. The main character is a football player who has never won any game. And his team really sucks. He’s already in his late 30s, and just when he was about to go through the midlife crisis, a businessman came to him and told him that he’s the only heir of his late grandfather that he’s never met. This grandfather was incredibly loaded, and he gets to inherit a big fortune. However, there’s one condition, he has to spend a billion within one month in order to get the right to inherit all the money his grandfather left him. I know it doesn’t make any sense, but you know, it’s a comedy after all, it doesn’t really matter whether the plot is reasonable or not. Anyway, he accepted this ‘challenge’ and what happened in the next month is really hilarious. He totally changed his lifestyle, like… he booked all the rooms in a luxury hotel so that his team members can practice and have fun there, and he even paid a lot of money to invite the strongest football team in the country to have a friendly match with them.

  I watched that movie in the movie theatre, and the audience there never stopped laughing. The lines and the actors’ performance just kept cracking us up. It’s fair to say, it’s the funniest comedy I’ve ever watched.
