Charming little HK romantic comedy.
16 April 2015 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty charming romantic comedy from Hong Kong, where a middle-aged man is married to two domineering and stubborn women. When he was told that he cannot immigrate to the United States with two wives, he seeks the help of his U.S. Citizen doctor friend by asking him to marry one of his wives and divorce her later when they all reach the states. Meanwhile, the doctor is trying to court his much-younger girlfriend, and does not realize that the nurse at his clinic has a crush on him.

There are lots of harmless adult humor that you will find entertaining, as well as some good-old-fashion action-related humor. The plot is well-paced and centers around the romantic circles our movie leads get entangled in, from Bill (Bill Tung) putting up with the bickering wives (Lydia Sum, Wan-Si Wong) to Richard (Richard Ng) trying to woo his girlfriend - not knowing his nurse (Carol 'Do Do' Cheng) is trying pull on his heart strings.

Plenty of silly innuendos and a little bit of drama to boot, it's a charming little comedy that is sure to delight an audience.

Grade B+
