Although finished in 2001, producers at China Star released "Black Mask 2: City of Masks" (2001) instead thinking that it would make more money. It didn't so the release date for "Looking For Mister Perfect" (2003) was severely pushed back. This movie still didn't do well at the box office due to the outbreak of SARS in Asia.

This is a love romance, action comedy starring Shu Qi, Andy On, and Simon Yam. Hong Kong police officer Grace (Shu Qi) decides to tag along with her actress friend Joey (Isabel Chan) to Malaysia. Joey doing a location shooting, and Grace thinking she's there to have a relaxing vacation. At the resort Grace meets Alex ( Andy On ) who she comes close with. He's wearing the same suit as a man of her dreams. She thinks he's an ordinary guy, but he's actually on a secret assignment to track down a stolen military hardware. Grace and Joey is mistaken as possible buyers for the hardware by Alex and his supervisor Teddy (Shiu Hung Hui). Poon (Simon Yam) is the seller of the hardware. Alex and Teddy plants a hidden camera in Grace and Joey's hotel room to monitor them. Not knowing, Grace talks about the man of her dreams while Alex monitors the conversation. Action is tempered with comedy as Simon Yam does a superb job of adding comedic touch to his moves. Yam, and On converge towards the end to form the final action showdown.
Asides from the main plot, this movie has many subplot of comedy, romance, and unexpected plot of most characters having double identity that makes this movie worth seeing.
The movie is shot mostly on location at a resort in Malaysia's Kota Kinabalu and it's beautiful. This movie will probably make you want to visit Kota Kinabalu. The scenery in this movie is that beautiful.
