Infernal Infidelity
15 March 2004 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Combine the HK triad genre with 4 infidel men and what you get is one hell of a mad spoof! Hilarious and refreshing, this film is a cleverly-executed parody of the stereotypical HK gangster movie. Kudos to the creators of coming up with such a novel idea!

Having sent their partners on a holiday together, our 4 musketeers set out to carry out the ultimate mission to cheat on their other halves for that one day. The fact that they're doing it in honour of their 'ninth uncle' (Tony 'The Lover' Leung as the 'big brother', who sacrificed himself to protect these 4 men from being 'caught', and is now being cruelly imprisoned in his home with no access to porn and women) after 5 long years of planning makes the story all the more absurdly amusing!

Seeing Eric Tsang and Jordan Chan spoofing the triad boss roles that they are so familiar with really is great fun. Add the always stupid looking Chapman To into the picture and you really have a barrel of ready laughs. Of course, not forgetting to mention the cast of women led by veteran comedy actress Teresa Mo and a very crude Candy Lo (what a blast!), all taking part in a surprisingly thrilling cat-and-mouse chase with the hapless men. An enjoyable film that is well supported by a unique story, a competent cast (watch out for those cameos!) and a thoughtful closure.
