Great parody
1 March 2004 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

It will be difficult for anyone not steeped in Hong Kong culture to make much of this film.

The film takes on the shell of a Hong Kong gangster film, specifically Infernal Affairs, and inject it with a completely different subject, infidelity of a kind commonly found in Hong Kong men. One needs to have seen Infernal Affairs to truly appreciate the in-jokes, and to know the recent history of Hong Kong to get many of the local jokes.

Granted, there is not much substance to the film in terms of making you think. But it is still a piece of Hong Kong comedy so skillfully woven together, with so many cameo(es), that you can not but laugh yourself silly all the way through.
