A nice little romantic comedy....with an emphasis on romance.
13 March 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Sammi Cheng and Andy Lau star in this romantic-comedy--with a particular emphasis on romance. I noticed a couple reviewers didn't like that the film wasn't that funny. I had no problem with it and thought it didn't need to be funnier.

When I rented this film, my first thought was 'wow--a film starring Andy Lau that is NOT a martial arts epic or gritty cop film!'. This is because here in the States, most of Lau's films you see are this sort of film--such as "Internal Affairs", "House of Flying Dragons" and "Warlords". Here it is nice to see him in something lighter.

The film is set in Hong Kong and involves a nice boss (Lau) and a strange secretary (Cheng). I say strange because on one hand she's a mess. She has no confidence with men and flies off the deep when she has relationship problems. But, on the other hand, she's very loyal, highly skilled and a very important part of her office team--though she's not the sort to seek attention and often lets herself be the fall gal when there are problems. As the film progresses, Lau realizes what a find he has with Cheng--at first as a co-worker and then later...well see the film for yourself to see what's next.

Overall, this is a very sweet film--a nice date film. Nothing overly deep or significant here--just a very nice movie featuring some actors who manage to carry off the film quite well.
