Standard tale of the grass isn't always greener on the other side of the fence. But Sally Yeh and Sylvia Chang do a marvelous job of making it work. Bright satire of contemporary life and the supposed freedom that comes with it. The scenes of Chang trying to keep up with her boyfriend are priceless. I guess that there might be a feminist message in here that might resonate with some but to me it was a delightful comedy from start to finish.
