A Little Hyperactive, But Not Bad
27 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie stars Josephine Siao as Jenny, who in the first twenty minutes of the film works at a succession of jobs where little things happen to cause her to have to look for other work. Those first twenty minutes are funny, you just love Jenny as she tries to make her way in the world. She eventually takes a job as a manners coach for the father of a mogul who seems to be buying up all of Hong Kong and displacing people. The film doesn't lose its way, but Jenny's character is less endearing. If you've ever seen Josephine Siao you know one thing: She is not plain. Even with coke bottle glasses and a bowl haircut, she still looks cute. That is immaterial here, and Ms. Siao, who is also a producer of the film, does a fine job. American audiences know John Woo as a director of mostly dramatic films so check this out to see how he does slapstick comedy. Its a bit dizzying but its fun. Check it out, especially for Josephine Siao.
