Too silly to be considered great, but it's very endearing.
15 January 2010 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Maybe I'm just biased towards nostalgia but most of the time, the classic Hong Kong comedies of my youth can do no wrong.

The Greatest Lover stars two of HK's best - Chow Yun Fatt and Anita Mui

  • and features Sandra Ng and Eric Tsang as well. It's a delightful


comedy about three illegal immigrants from China, one of whom (Chow) gets roped into a gentleman-training course - taught by Mui - in order to take revenge on some bitchy beauties who jilted a nasty fellow. Kinda like a gender-reversed My Fair Lady.

Chow and Mui alternate between slapstick and more highbrow humor effortlessly, like the true masters they are, and the rest of the supporting cast - there are more famous faces I haven't named - are up to the task as well. The movie is really too silly to be considered great, but it's very endearing if you open up to it.
