I braved this Aaron Kwok-Kelly Chan vehicle to see Teresa Mo's first (and only) movie appearance since 1994. I've missed watching her goofy-cute performances and she doesn't disappoint, even if And I Hate You So is as lame a movie as they come.
The plot sounded promising - a columnist and a deejay get into an extended catfight, trashing each other through their respective medias. However, the characters (or the actors) fail to rise up to expectations. Kwok's deejay is just mean and misogynist, and Chan's columnist is simply bossy and untalented. Considering the kissy-kissy movie poster, it's plain to see that they're going to fall in love despite their spats. How they look past each other's shortcomings is beyond me. Well, lame-o deserves lame-o.
Teresa Mo and Eric Tsang apparently get a romantic side plot of their very own as Mo only interacts with the two leads a couple of times and Tsang not at all. I thought it was perhaps their romance was supposed to parallel that of the leads', but I failed to see any relation besides the obvious falling in love with each other, so I'm attributing it to uneven scripting. It's not a bad thing, detaching Mo from the uninteresting leads, but she's given much less screen time as a result. Still, it doesn't stop her from outshining the leads and stealing the movie with her radiant presence. As evidence, she's was the only actor here nominated for a Hong Kong Film Award. 5/10
