This low-budget teenage film was the only fiction feature in 2004 that did not lose money on the Taiwanese market (it has grossed twice its production cost). Produced by two young, inexperienced women in their late twenties and shot by even younger Chen Yin-Jung, this sex comedy about a young gay circle in Tapei looks quite amateurish, but its refreshing tone was up to now quite unheard of in Taiwanese cinema.

Although this movie is low budget and completely silly, it revels in that and seems proud of it rather than trying to ignore it. A completely generic plot that anyone can guess, especially if they're familiar with gay fiction, and your typical gay characters would usually mean a boring movie. Instead this film puts together characters that you can completely believe and expect to meet on the street. I found myself thinking "I wish I knew these guys!" many times. A totally adorable wonderful happy movie that will make you giggle and squeal and completely believe in love, even if it's just for the duration of the film, this one is not to be missed. Heartwarming, adorable, real, yet fantastic... I can't rate this one highly enough.
