Diamond in the rough gem about a rich girl and the poor boy who loves her. Its the four star cast that makes this worth seeing.
24 March 2007 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Okay let me be honest. Under no circumstances would I have picked this movie up. I didn't like the art on the DVD cover and the plot didn't thrill me. The price however was under a buck so I figured I could risk trying something different just because it was cheap. Boy was I surprised, actually to be perfectly honest I enjoyed this movie more than I did most of the movies I've seen recently that I actually wanted to see.

The plot of the film has a poor boy falling in love with a rich girl from a private school. Things happen and they soon have to deal with the fact that there's a baby on the way.

The story is nothing new, however it doesn't follow the typical movie of the week formula. Sure there are complications, including a run in with the law because the girl is underage, but it doesn't always take the easy way out, indeed there is the possibility that after the credits roll that things may not be happy down the road. Still the film is very watchable.

The film works for two reasons.

First the writing of the characters is sharp. These are likable and real people. The early scene where the boy and his friends crash the school dance in order to find out the girls name is utterly charming.You connect with him and his lady love and are pretty well good to go from that point on. And as the film progresses you find you care about all of the characters you meet and you become interested in what happens to them.

The other reason this film works is the cast. Across the board they are note perfect. Then again most of the actors are people who have been working in the Hong Kong industry for years and are good in everything.

Is this the greatest film ever to come down the pike? No, of course not, but its a really nice, well acted little movie that odds are you'd pass over at the video store. This is one of those movies that makes it worth going off the usual cinematic menu and trying something different.
