A story about a lady (May) who lives in a house with three guys in a platonic setting(one is named Brad Pitt. I'm not joking). They all decide to start a bar business after they lose their jobs. They deal with the usual nuisances, like overhead, triads, one meddlesome girlfriend. Shu Qi is also in this movie, with the unlikely name of Boy. She is kind of wasted here, she has been much better in other films (It bears no resemblance to this film, but try out "Milennium Mambo"). Maybe its me, but the characters are just not all that interesting. May is pretty and deserves better. I feel a good movie could have been made with more sexual tension between May and the three guys, but it didn't work out that way. If you like romantic comedy you may like this, but I've seen much, much better. Not horrible, just run of the mill.
