In true tradition of clichés that appear in movies, this is one that we often say about them. And the mediocrity of this one was always apparent.
Killing Me Tenderly is a story of a rising pop singer, Cindy (played by Sammi Cheng), who, unbeknown to her, is being stalked by a crazy fan. In response, her "Foster Mother" (Wyman Wong) calls in the police to help. Meanwhile, a young police sergeant, Lai Su-kan (Leon Lai) is tired of his life as the Head of his village in the New Territories. After putting in a transfer, he gets the protection of Cindy as his first job. Only problem, is that he has to pretend to be gay.
Well, the story gets predictable after that, after all it is a romantic comedy. But sadly the humour was rather thin and unfunny, and the whole story lacked so much that it would rival a large family's shopping list.
I'm not allowed to tell you what happens, but if I were to offer any money to you to work out the rest of the story, I'd be losing big time.
But in the end, I guess fans of Cheng might like the movie, but to be absolutely honest, "it was okay" would be a generous comment.
