Great fun, a brilliantly inventive and stylish comedy.

A comedy about adultery? Quite innovative no? This is surely what you'll be thinking all through this decent hk comedy. The story is about a group of friends who go to Thailand to cheat on their wives. They have been doing this for a while and now have a new member to their 'club'. The 'leader' Tins nephew. They all embark on this trip but things take a turn for the worse when the wives discover whats going on. For a comedy, this has a nice amount of depth to it. The character Tin, reminisces throughout the film about another member of the group who got caught by his wifey. His recollections are funny as its all taken so seriously. These men will do anything to avoid being discovered by their wives, who always seem to cotton on to their plans. They run their little trips like a business and cover their tracks as best they can. Eg they use cash at all times and come equipped with condoms! Their are some funny scenes involving condoms and the accidental use of a credit card though I won't ruin your enjoyment here. Just believe me, this is intelligent, fresh comedy. Barely a cliché in sight. The film also maintains its coolness and originality by having some great scenes. One is when the group are escaping from one brothel, they are being snapped by reporters. A tip off from the wives! Though the twist here is that the cameras make gunshot noises and the scene plays out like a gun battle. I found this funny and highly entertaining. This comedy even manages to throw in a few semi serious dramatic scenes. Their are surges of emotion which gives the viewer a nice attachment to the characters, all of whom are unique in their own ways. To conclude, this is a highly enjoyable farce. Its original and different from the get go and its simply entertaining. If you like a comedy with a little more depth than say a steven chow flick look no further than this. Oh that reminds me, nearing this films end their are some nice little cameos, which is kind of the icing on the cake to the film. ENJOY!
