A light-hearted Thai action comedy about a band of female super-spies who carry no guns nor whips, for their weapons are brooms, mops and buckets of dirty water.
In the highest halls of government, corruption is threatening to shred the moral fabric of Thailand. Dirty politicians plot against the welfare of the people in an attempt to line their own pockets.
Enter a motley crew of country girls, rank amateurs who know nothing about espionage but a whole lot about snooping and sweeping. The four maids in this movie are hired by the police to perform a secret mission, because as maids, they gain the unusual privilege in accessing all the rooms in the house of a rogue millionaire who is believed to be a mastermind of a bribery scheme. Waew, Jim, Kate and Aey of the M.A.I.D. team, armed only with their wits and dustpans, wage a not-quite-secret war against big time corruption.
From one disastrous mission to the next, these ladies prove that when government gets dirty, it’s time to send in the cleaners! A playful look at the role of house maids and their unheralded contribution to the peace of society.
This was a refreshing movie to watch. Fairly unique storyline, a bunch of bumbling clumsy maids recruited to be amateur secret agent spies to investigate a suspected casino of money laundering, I was recommended to watch this, and I must say this was one of the funniest Thai comedies I’ve seen in a long time! From beginning to end, this kept me entertained with their hysterical antics and dialogue, I kept laughing out loud on several occasions and my roommate was giving me weird looks. Even the maid music video during the end credit roll will have you cracking up. The characters were also well played, especially Waew and Jim, the special effects were pretty good, and the whole thing left me wondering how many maids in the world are actually secret spies. Try to find this movie with some good subs, or learn Thai, cause no doubt some of the jokes will be muddied in translation, but whether you’re a Thai native or not, you’re bound to enjoy this flick!
