Hilarious
18 August 2004 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie a long time ago and I thought that it was...... hilarious? Original? I don't know... I cannot describe this film. I can only say that I could not stop laughing when I watched it, especially the bit when 'Gau Suk' was in the pub and was trying to escape... the pseudo-urgency and the fake emotional input from the actors was... not original but hilarious and refreshing... I thought that the film was a thrilling ride of fun, yet apart from its hilarity it had a moral dimension that examined the morality of infidelity... with good humour.

9/10
