Tiresome movie at times, but the usual romantic comedy, HK style
5 January 2006 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Not great but not bad.

Leon Lai plays the incessant liar, OK Lai who has 3 good friends, Pure, Freaky and Bully. He lies so much that one day, he is dumped by Mona, but tells his friend that he dumped her.

Cecilia Cheung plays Wonderful, an innocent girl who has never had her period and hence is still a virgin. She has 3 good friends, Ugly, Bitchy and Witch. The day before Ugly's wedding day, Wonderful meets OK at a convenience store. Talk about fate, that is the same day OK is dumped by his girlfriend.

A chance meeting with Wonderful's boss, Young Master (played by Moses Chan in his usual rather expressionless role) leads him to a Tibetan Buddhist monk who can fortell one's future. As fate would have it, he meets Wonderful there again, who wants to find out if she'll ever have her period, and find love. The monk predicts OK would find love, but he cannot lie to her. He also predicts that Wonderful will have her period, and find love.

Unfortunately, Bitchy mistakes OK for the cousin of Wonderful's boss, since they both share the same surname, and OK was not given the chance to clear the misunderstanding. Lies lead to more lies, culminating in Wonderful losing her job as she and Bitchy mistakes her boss's real cousin, David Lai, as a phoney. Wonderful feels betrayed as Selina, Young Master's sister, has had the hots for OK and while he was with Wonderful, he had been sleeping with Selina as well.

Leon Lai plays the role of OK pretty well. Because of his looks, no one would think OK was actually an incessant liar. Cecilia Cheung's portrayal of Wonderful was good too. And the supporting roles of Wonderful's parents, played by Ng Man Tat and Yuen King-Tan adds to the comedy. Phrases like "Big sister" or "Big Auntie" to denote a woman's menstrual cycle adds the comedy, of how people tend to be ashamed to say certain words.

It gets a bit tiresome as the events can be quite clichéd. Boy meets girl, who happens to be the love of his life. But having lied so often, he's not sure if he can tell the truth. Then he cheats on her to ensure he can get a piece of business from a rich woman.

However, for those who love such romantic comedies, see the show to appreciate the comedic talents of Ng Man Tat and Yuen King-Tan (who in some ways really steal the show), as well as Cheung Tat-Ming's portrayal of Pure.

By the way, as always, fate wins out. That's the spoiler!
