Fizzy comedy.
8 August 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

A broad comedy that is as sweet and fizzy as soda pop. Not something on which to base your film diet, but a fun addition.

Chow Yun-Fat plays the richest man in Hong Kong who is not pleased with the arranged marriage with a shallow socialite which awaits him in just a few weeks. Leaving behind everything on a whim, he journeys out into the world and gets a job as a bus boy at a noodle restaurant and finds the girl of his dreams.

Not much plot, but some funny scenes and Chow Yun-Fat has rarely looked cuter. A good candidate for rental; probably not a movie you'll want to see over and over.

Be sure to look for CYF in a small role as Stink the taxi driver. One of the highlights of the film, especially since this was one job which Chow actually had before he became a superstar.
