very funny entertainment
31 August 2004 | by (Belfast, NI) – See all my reviews

Much of Hong Kong's most popular comedy does not travel well. Stephen Chow's nonsense films, for example, while insanely successful in Asia, are mystifying to most Westerners. But Boys Are Easy does travel, especially for fans of serious Chinese film. It's a very funny film in which the actors lampoon their own roles in more serious films. Brigitte Lin sends up her androgenous kung fu antics, Maggie Cheung makes fun of her bad girl roles, Sandra Ng camps up her tough cookie shtick, and so on. But you don't have to catch all the in jokes to laugh at the slapstick and ridiculous plot turns. The subtitles are particularly Chinglish in nature, and this adds to the campiness. A very enjoyable film.
