A romancing comedy!
6 October 2017 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

Actor Chow Yun Fat plays Wong Yat Fat, a mechanic who falls in love with beautiful rich girl, Tung (played by Maggie Cheung). When Wong finds out his friend also like her, he must fight for Tung's attention.

This film is full of laugh out loud humor and a pretty savvy romantic subplot as well. All sorts of other highly acclaimed Hong Kong actors appear including Eric Tsang, Stanley Fung, Chan Pak Cheung, Philip Chan, Wong Jing and Sharla Cheung. Check it out!

Grade B
