Silly but kind of oddly sweet
16 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Silly but kind of oddly sweet, this is typical lightweight romantic comedy that HK loves to make. It is also the type of film that Sammi Cheng seems most comfortable with-- playing the goofy, misfit who stumbles along an offbeat path to love. In this case, she is highly skilled but unworldly herbal healer and martial arts expert. The twist here is that she (May) must learn to love and feel its loss to achieve mastery in kung fu so that she can save the Omei temple from its former leader and her deadly intentions.

After curing Tiger, May realizes that he is the perfect man to "love her and leave her" and give her the power to defeat her foe. Grateful for the cure, Tiger agrees with her offbeat plan. But, as always, the best laid plans have an uncanny ability to go awry and what starts out as a simple, not-strings-attached agreement becomes more complicated that either bargained for.

Misfits are Sammi's strong suit and she is able to pull it all off from her naive/socially inept healer through her transformation to worldly woman with a kind of kooky charm. Koo's role isn't much of a stretch for him and he has played it many times before and since. But, together they do make a reasonably good odd-ball team.

On the whole, rather pleasant, lightweight fare with a couple of rather humorous scenes-- such as Sammi's dinner with the family. Not a continuous stream of belly laughs, but oddly sweet in its way.
