A Fair Romantic/Slapstick Comedy
crossbow0106 from United States
4 December 2008
This is a fairly warped HK comedy about a conductor named Koo (George
Lam) who comes back to Hong Kong to perform. Along with annoying
relatives, he also meets up with petty thieves Jacky and Philldonna.
Jacky's sister is Carrie, played by the always engaging Maggie Cheung.
Koo and Carrie meet and though their getting together is somewhat
illogical it still happens. Also in the film is the recently departed
Lydia Shum, who plays Philldonna's mom Madonna (a cute idea). This film
isn't bad, it just gets annoying at times. They should have kept the
Jacky/Philldonna stuff to a minimum and made the Koo/Carrie romance
much more prominent. This is slapstick with not enough romantic comedy.
Worth watching because George Lam, Maggie Cheung and Lydia Shum are
always worth watching, but the film once in a while gets on your
