Light Fluffy Romantic comedy
31 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this film based on all the good audience reviews I read. If anyone wants to see 2 fine actors such as Daniel Wu and Miriam Yeung performing in a wonderful, charming, romantic comedy then I'd have no hesitation in recommending ...Drink Drank Drunk.

If on the other hand staring at Daniel Wu for 2 hours would be entertaining for you, then Love Undercover is just the ticket!

Miriam plays a lovably dumb Policewoman who stumbles her way onto a case involving triads. Hunky Daniel plays the son of a triad who becomes enamoured by Miriam. Miriam likes Daniel but wonders is he or isn't he (a triad). The majority of the target audience are probably also wondering is he or isn't he (gonna take his shirt off).

This film is basically Police Academy set in Hong Kong. It's a little silly, a little juvenile, and also a little charming. It's good but not that good.
