Hmmm, the two leads are too hard of a character to really stir up romantic feelings, and their interactions rather flat despite the mud slinging that goes on. Aaron Kwok, although a gorgeous looking guy, never appears like he has deep character in any of his movies, or someone with a caring personality. Kelly Chen is also too stiff and don't convey kindness, or loving feelings on any of her movies. Now two such characters got together in a romantic comedy ! It would have only worked with a title like I Hate You So.
Both actors do a credible job, but I couldn't get to like the character Aaron Kwok's was playing. He was pretty mean in this movie. Kelly Chen's character was only marginally better. The romance between Eric and Mo on the sideline was silly and it didn't match the mood of the two serious main characters. There were other romantic comedy with two leads antagonizing each other like Pillow Talk between Doris Day, and Rock Hudson. At least those guys had some charm even when they were going at each other. This is not the case with these two.
Plot was pretty good, so the movie was okay to watch. It's an unlikely story of romance happening to two such characters.
