The Attractive One is a well-paced, delightful, romantic comedy. It is light, deliberately goofy, but that doesn't prevent it from being a heartwarming story of oddballs falling in love and avoiding admitting it.

The Attractive One ("Sun giu yu gwai") is almost the Naked Gun 2 1/2 for the romantic comedy genre. It is a colorful story smoothly told. It is delightfully quirky in the way only Hong Kong can do well. The cast is obviously having fun making the movie and that comes through. It's a "safe" movie with no villain, violence or tear-jerking. For all its lightness, it has an underlying message that leaves the audience feeling good at the closing credits.

I'm not sure the English title matches the movie but it isn't so far off. There are a few places in the subtitled version I saw where some of the dialogue wasn't subtitled. The songs weren't translated and neither were any of the signs the camera panned over. Despite that oversight, I don't feel I missed anything pivotal.

It was time well spent.
