Misleading title = film has no solid plot basis. (contains spoilers)
18 October 2003 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

Cheung plays the likeable priest character, who becomes involved in someone else's love problems and simultaneously involved in someone else's crime. He's kind of the good samaritan figure who can do no wrong. But overall, he doesn't really do much at the same time, to the extent that this movie is not very solid and doesn't seem to go anywhere interesting. Even the humour fades out pretty quickly.

I wouldn't recommend it unless you are simply a diehard Cheung fan.
