a film for fans of the actors
26 December 2004 | by (Ballarat, Australia) – See all my reviews

I bought this movie to see Vivian! ...and she looks fab in her school uniform!

But moving on from that important fact, this movie is moderately entertaining, though it's 'borrowing' of scenes from other movies such as the 'Back to the Future' series, and 'Home Alone' is fairly obvious.

The first half hour is the most enjoyable, with an amusing opening sequence featuring a 'cupid's arrow' flying through the air at people. The scenes featuring the little kids are less appealing.

If you are a fan of Jimmy Lin, or want to see Vivian Hsu looking her usual delectable self, then worth a look! Those two actors would later be reunited in 'Chivalrous Legend.'
