Tony Leung Ka Fai,
The Wong Jing direct, produce and write is back with his version of the popular HBO series, 'Sex and the City'. The stars power in this movie is great, we have Carina Lau has Selina the lead actress who is a psychoanalyst, who hang out with her friends (Athena Chu has a erotic story for woman, Yoyo Mung has a multi-restaurant owner who like the danger side, and Pinky Cheung whose dad is a triad boss goes retirement and know how to fight). The story begin when Selina ex came to her and ask her to take care of her wild daughter (Cecilia Cheung in another bizarre look) and tried to cure her wild behaviour. Well the rest of the storyline consist of the 4 woman and there relationship with the guys, we have Tony Leung Ka Fai going after Carina Lau, Athena Chu going after Edisen Chen, Picky Cheung going after Andy Hui, and Lu Yi going after Yoyo Mung.
The movie was mildly entertaining and the stars in this movie were fun to watch, but the flow and situation of the story do get tiring. Andy Hui look hot with his bodyguard suit and his non facial expression. Some of the stuff in this movie is just a recycle from other movies (Analysis This for one), which make the movie rather less enjoyable. The narrative talk from Carina was excitement giving us enough information on her friends and fine performance from everyone except Edisen Chen (I don't hate this fellow Canadian). This movie lack new idea, and the comedy is not that funny, I can't really compare to the HBO series because I never watched it.
If you are fans of any of these stars I recommend watching this because the movie wasn't boring at all. Don't expect the movie to be some clever script or anything special.
