Trivia

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.

Looking for?
3 May 2005 | by (Oriental State of Mind) – See all my reviews

Having been disappointed with Shu Qi's performances on more than one occasion, although always conventionally admiring her looks, I went into this film with lowest of expectations, wanting just a painless ride through entertainment with as little cheesiness as possible. Note, that's something I rarely indulge myself with, especially when wandering in the 2K hit-or-miss HK cinema.

Although for the most part I was entertained, I was surprised with how the main cast of Shu Qi and Andy On didn't up their comedic delivery to match the oddness of Simon Yam or even Lam Suet. Perhaps their characters weren't designed to be silly or become flashbacks of what Jackie Chan could have been apart of with a random Asian cinema temptress 10 or 15 years ago. Nonetheless their characters stay true to their roles as much as possible, even if their roles and the plot have little chemistry and nuances implanted.

I tend not to hold directors in jeopardy for trying something different each or seldom time but surprisingly I got through this film with an ease, not encountering any poor visuals or humiliating characters and especially not feeling as if the wacky comedy was supernaturally forced like it is with Wong Jing.

Watch this if you're looking for a harmlessly slaphappy comedy with no strings or hooks attached and just hope you don't end up like me, forgetting what the story was about 2 weeks later.
