very enjoyable HK film of 2001
6 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

One of the best films of 2001, a lighthearted comedy about a fat girl who is too ashamed of herself, therefore cannot see her old boyfriend. Andy Lau and Sammi Cheng play the two fat characters who try to lose weight.

Both of their performances were exceptional, and were quite enjoyable to watch. I would highly recommend this film to anyone who has any interest in foreign films. This one is well worth your time. I gave this 10/10 because this is one of the best I've seen from HK in a long time.
