Just because I like it doesn't mean it isn't one of the best...
20 July 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this a while back, but so much of it still sticks in my mind. I remember watching the movie looking for Qi Shu, but releasing that I didn't reallly care all that much that she was there. Her character is an incredible strong point for the film. However, the film doesn't revolve around her, as I wish I did. Essentially, it is a stardard love polygon starring some not so bad talent. If you can get into those types of movies, then you will easily enjoy it. And if you're a fan of HK cinema in general, you'll enjoy all the american references, like the fact the main characters have english names.

All in all, it's an enjoyable feel good light-hearted romance drama. That enough adjectives for you? Now go rent it, or buy if it's cheap.
