A thought provoking and entertaining comedy
23 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

This film is about the life in London of two gay men of Chinese ancestry. One of them is a posh and stylish guy who is good looking but insecure, another is a camp guy longing for love.

I saw this film in a film festival in Hong Kong, with the director present for the Q&A session. The viewers' reaction in the film festival was very positive.

This film clearly attempts to entertain the audience. The sets are very thoughtfully created and visually attractive. The plot is very entertaining and hilarious. It also portrays Chinese gay men as being attractive, powerful and stylish, instead of the usual stereotype. This positive portrayal empowers the people in this subgroup.

It has ample use of stereotypes, it really makes the viewers laugh in many scenes. The jokes are direct and to the point. It also examines the structure of gay relationships in a more subtle way. In the end scene, a twist of circumstances and personalities (the watch giving scene) leaves me wonder how people can succumb to vanity and disregard valuable friendship in the process.

The cast is very good looking, which makes the film perfect eye candy. It is also thought provoking as well. This film deserves wider recognition, but the portrayal of a hot 3 way kiss between 3 men may limit its crossover appeal.
